How Did Aurelian Reunite the Roman Empire? | 271AD-280AD A.D. History Podcast

    • History

For this premiering episode of A.D. History, it is again one of those special occasions where your hosts Paul and Patrick use their combined intellects to tackle a major topic together. In this decade, they go all in and tell the history of how one Lucius Domitius Aurelianus - better known as Emperor Aurelian - did what no other Roman leader could during the Third Century Crisis... reconquer all prior Roman territory that had splintered from the Empire during this Third Century disaster. We look at why Aurelian succeeded where all of his third century contemporaries and predecessors abjectly failed; discussing what he understood that they did not. Aurelian's achievement amazingly occurred entirely within the first five years of the 270s, serving as the first act of two that would give Rome a new lease on its already vaunted existence.
