Crispus - Caesar of Imperium Romanum from 317 to 326
Flavius Julius Crispus was a Caesar of the Roman Empire. He was the first-born son of Constantine I and Minervina. He was well liked by his father and the army, and was the most likely successor to the imperial reins.

However, in 326 Crispus was suddenly tried by a local court in Istria and executed - at his fathers orders, no less.

Ancient hisorians claim that his step-mother, Fausta, had accused him of attempted rape. Always short tempered, Constantine immediately had his son executed. A few months later, Constantine reportedly found out the whole truth and had Fausta boiled to death.
