Name:  Carausius
Brief biography:  Separatist in Britannia and Gaul during the reign of Diocletian.
Nationality:  Roman
Occupation:  Emperor
Period of rule:  286-293
Date of death:  293

Carausius declared himself Emperor in 286, during the reign of Diocletian. He cannot truly be called a usurper or revolter, however, as he did acknowledge the authority of Diocletian and Maximian, and tried to associate himself as a third emperor. He was never recognised by Diocletian or Maximian, however, and was killed in 293 by Allectus, who succeeded him.
