Diocletian (Latin: Gaius Aurelius Valerius Diocletianus Augustus;[notes 1] c. 22 December 244 – 3 December 311), was a Roman Emperor from 284 to 305.
Born to an Illyrian family of low status in the Roman province of Dalmatia, Diocletian rose through the ranks of the military to become cavalry commander to the emperor Carus. After the deaths of Carus and his son Numerian on campaign in Persia, Diocletian was proclaimed emperor. The title was also claimed by Carus' other surviving son, Carinus, but Diocletian defeated him in the Battle of the Margus. how to create a membership websiteRYA Powerboat 2
