Flavius Valerius Severus, was proclaimed Caesar by Galerius in 305 ; and on the death of Constantius Chlorus in the following year, he was further proclaimed Augustus by Galerius. Soon afterward he was sent against Maxentius, who has assumed the imperial title at Rome. The expedition was unsuccessful and Severus, having surrendered at Ravenna, was taken prisoner to Rome and compelled to put an end of his life.
