Constantine

Constantine the Great was emperor of Rome from 306-337, making him the second longest-serving emperor behind only Caesar Augustus. He not only united the Eastern and Western Roman Empires, but upon founding the capitol at Constantinople, is also credited for founding the Byzantine Empire.But perhaps more importantly, Constantine is responsible for making Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire. No longer were Christians persecuted and they were now free to worship publicly.
