After Diocletian, who shared power with three other emperors, there is a fierce struggle for the succession. No one is prepared to give up dominion over the world.
And Rome is affected by other tensions: on the one hand there are the bloody persecutions of the adherents of Christianity; on the other there is the ever more menacing presence of the barbarians. Among the protagonists of this transformation is Constantine, the bastard son of one of the emperors. The pen of Andrea Frediani recreates his irresistible rise, epic in scale and immensely important in its effects, but also his troubled love affair with Minervina and his rivalry with Martinian, a man determined to defend the values of a society and tradition that are crumbling.
This trilogy brings to life a troubled age, the age that marked the transition from ancient to medieval Rome, and from the traditional gods to the God of the Christians. The Last Praetorian The empire has been in chaos for decades, but Diocletian, having won yet another civil war, restores stability, creating a college of four emperors, the tetrarchs. But his plan is threatened after a few years by the attacks of those who feel excluded: chief among them Constantine, the bastard son of Constantius Chlorus, one of the sovereigns. With the support of the Christians, Constantine is successful, finally gaining absolute control in the West, defeating his rival Massentius in the great Battle of the Milvian Bridge.
The concord between them does not last long and the inevitable breach leads to another bloody civil war, which establishes Constantine as absolute master of the empire.
But he is compelled to face family tragedies and conflicts which throw a sinister light on his figure. His death, marked by one of the most bloody massacres in the political history of Rome, leaves the empire once again divided and unstable. In order to block the advance of the barbarians, he is forced to give the huge responsibility of defeating the invaders to his young cousin Julian.
He is a character from another age: he venerates the traditional gods in a society where Christianity has permeated all layers of society and, despite prevailing in the inevitable clash with his cousin, is destined to be overwhelmed by the irresistible flow of events. Andrea Frediani was born in Rome in His works have been translated into six languages.
