Imperator Marius (259-274-287) was the second emperor of the Gallic Empire.


Marius was well respected by much of the court, as he had been prepared by his father to become Imperator. He reformed taxation, increasing his popularity among the lower classes. He also began distributing land wealth among landless peasants. While beloved by the people and the army, he was greatly disliked by the nobility for his reforms. Caius Tetricus declared himself Caesar of Gaul in 280, with the support of many nobles. The drawn out civil war remained stagnant for much of Marius’s reign. However at the Battle near Lutetia, Marius was devastatingly wounded. He succumbed to his wounds a few days later and was succeeded by his younger brother.
