Fausta Empress of the Roman Empire from 307 to 326.
Flavia Maxima Fausta was a Roman Empress, daughter of the Roman Emperor Maximianus.

In 307, her father Maximianus married her to Constantine I, who set aside his wife Minervina in her favour. Empress Fausta was held in high esteem by Constantine, and proof of his favour was that in 324 she was proclaimed Augusta; previously she held the title of Nobilissima Femina.

However three years later Fausta was put to death by Constantine, following the execution of Crispus, his eldest son by Minervina, in 326. The two deaths have been inter-related in various ways - but nothing can be concluded with certainty.
