Description

<p><h2>Their rivalry will change the world forever. </h2></p><p>As competition for the imperial throne intensifies, Constantine and Maxentius realise their childhood friendship cannot last. Each man rules over their respective quadrants of empire, enduring the difficulties of imperial control: battered by currents of politics, religion, personal tragedy and interpersonal rivalry, facing invasions from both barbarian forces and also from enemies within the empire.</p><p>As their positions become at once stronger and more troubled, the two men see the strained remains of their friendship riven by rivalry. Unfortunate words and misunderstandings work to finally sever their ties, leaving them as bitter opponents in the greatest game of all, with the throne of Rome the prize. It is a matter that can only be settled by outright war...</p>
