Jovinus was a Gallo-Roman noble who, with the support of Burgundians, Alemanni, and Franks, usurped power in Gaul during the autumn of 411. Virtually nothing is known of Jovinus’ short reign, although it is apparent that he enjoyed substantial support as he controlled the mints at Lugdunum, Trier, and Arles. In 412, he proclaimed his brother Sebastian co-emperor, but before the end of the following year they were both dead as a result of the treachery of the Goth Athulfus.
