Flavius Victor was a Western Roman Emperor from c.387 to August 388AD. He was the son of Magnus Maximus. Maximus rose up against Gratian in 383AD and Theodosius I recognized him as the legitimate emperor in the west. However, following Maximus invasion of Italy in 387AD, to depose Valentinian II, the brother and successor to Gratian, Theodosius responded and Maximus' army was defeated, resulting in his capture. Maximus was executed in 388AD, followed quickly by his son Flavius Victor.
