Constantine I thought highly enough of Fausta that he had her put on Imperial Rome Bronze Follis and proclaimed her Augusta. Her full name was Flavia Maxima Fausta, she lived from 289 AD to 326 AD. She was the daughter of the Roman Emperor Maximianus. In 307 Maximianus married her to Constantine I to seal an alliance with Constantine I for control of the Tetrachy. Constantine I set aside his first wife Minervina in favor of Fausta. But, only three years after their marriage Constantine I had Fausta put to death. He had her put to death very shortly after the execution of his oldest son, Crispus, leading to speculation about and affair. There is some controversy about the manner of her death, she died of suffocation in an over heated bath. An overheated bath is thought to be a method of that time for abortion bring into question her death as execution, sucide, or a failed abortion attempt. Constantine I ordered “damnatio memoriae” (“condemnation of memory”) of Fausta. Meaning that, that should not be remembered. The contemporary writings of that time make no mention of Fausta or of Crispus. Both of her sons, Constantine II and Constans both became Emperor, but neither revoked the order against their mother.
