Maxentius was the son of the former Emperor Maximian and
 son-in-law of Emperor Galerius.

His father-in-law hated him. He could fix that Maxentius became only a
senator but not a
Ceasar.

Trivia: Did you know that the later titels of 
Tsar and Emperor were derived from the name Ceasar?

The reign of Maxentius ended by his death in 312.

In December 2006, Italian archeologists found several wooden boxes
near the Palatine Hill in Rome.

The things inside were identified as the imperial Regalia
possibly belonging to Maxentius.
