Allectus                                                   293 - 296 A.D.


Allectus was the second and last of the Roman British secessionist emperors succeeding Carausius whom he murdered. Being under the gun as was Carausius his solo career came to an end when Constantius Chlorus mounted a well-planned invasion of Britain and was subsequently killed in battle by one of Chlorus's detachments.
