Jovian Emperor of the Roman Empire from 363 to 364.
Flavius Iovianus Augustus was Roman Emperor from 363 to 364.

Upon the death of emperor Julian the Apostate during his campaign against the Sassanid Empire, Jovian was hastily declared emperor by his soldiers. He sought peace with the Persians on humiliating terms and reestablished Christianity as the state church.

His reign lasted only eight months; After making peace with the Persians, Jovian decided to rush to Constantinople to consolidate his political position there. While en route, he was found dead in bed in his tent at Dadastana.

His death was officially attributed to either a surfeit of mushrooms or the poisonous carbon monoxide fumes of a charcoal warming fire - but it seems likely that the real cause was of a more sinister nature.
