Point of Divergence

The point of divergence in this timeline is in the year 383, when the general Magnus Maximus tried to become the Emperor of Rome. However in this timeline, Magnus Maximus does not manage to kill the Emperor Gratian, and is unable to advance. He eventually decides to make peace with the Emperor Gratian after neither are able to defeat each other. Emperor Gratian offered a peace deal to Magnus Maximus. He offers to give Roman Britain to Magnus Maximus and have Magnus Maximus be the North Roman Emperor. Magnus, no longer wanting to be Emperor of West Rome, accepts the offer. Theodosius the East Roman Emperor soon recognized Magnus as the Emperor of North Rome.
