On January 17, 395 the Roman Emperor Theodosius died in Milan. 
Theodosius is chiefly remembered for two momentous decisions that shaped the future fate of the Empire, firstly for finally adopting Christianity as the official religion of the state, and secondly, for splitting his heirloom, the Empire, between his two sons, Honorius and Ardcadius. 
Born in Spain in 347 as the son of a high ranking officer, Theodosius followed in his father�s footsteps, and rose to be the military commander of one the troubled provinces on the Balkans, a task not to be envied.
