Name:  Carus
Brief biography:  Roman Emperor 282-283.
Nationality:  Roman
Occupation:  Emperor
Place of birth:  Narbonne
Period of rule:  282-283
Date of death:  283

Carus was declared emperor by the army after the murder of Probus by his troops. Carus's involvement in the murder is unclear. He associated his sons, Carinus and Numerian, as Caesars with him, and left Carinus in charge in Rome, while Carus and Numerian travelled to fight the Sasanians in Sasanian territory. While on campaign, Carus died suddenly, most surviving sources suggest that he was struck by lightening, but illness is also, albeit less popularly, cited.
