Flavius Honorius (9 September 384 – 15 August 423) was Roman emperor from 393 to 423.He was the younger son of emperor Theodosius I and his first wife Aelia Flaccilla.Honorius's reign was precarious and chaotic.After the death of Theodosius, Honorius ruled the western half of the empire while his brother Arcadius ruled the eastern half.During his reign over the western Roman Empire, Rome was sacked for the first time in almost 800 years on 24 August 410 by the Visigoths.The last known gladiator games took place during the reign of Honorius, who banned the practice in 399 and again in 404, reportedly due to the martyrdom of a Christian monk named Telemachus while he was protesting a gladiator fight.Honorius died of edema on 15 August 423, leaving no heir. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
