Gordian II Emperor of the Roman Empire from 22 March 238 to 12 April 238.
Marcus Antonius Gordianus Sempronianus Romanus Africanus Augustus was Roman Emperor for one month with his father Gordian I in 238, the Year of the Six Emperors.

During the reign of Alexander Severus, Gordian's father became governor of the province of Africa Proconsularis. When Maximinus Thrax killed Alexander Severus and assumed the throne, a tax revolt broke out in Africa - and the Gordians were forced to assume imperial honours or perish.

Opposition would come from Numidia, where the governor was a loyal supporter of Maximinus Thrax and held a grudge against Gordian senior. He invaded Africa Proconsularis with the only legion stationed in the region. After a brief struggle, both Gordian I & II were dead.
