Valens 364-378 AD
Valens was the younger brother of Valentinian who made him co-emperor soon after his own accession. He then sent Valens off to take care of the eastern portion of the empire. Making Constantinopolis his capital, he dealt with the Persian factor as best he could which wasn't all that great and saw his borders shrink as a consequence. His ineptitude showed most compellingly at the battle of Adrianopolis in 378. Resettled barbarians had been allowed within the nominal borders of the empire but were allowed to keep their arms. As the barbarians became squeezed from the double whammy of external tribes pushing against their lands and the systematic and extra-official hard-line policies of lower Roman government officials they became aggressive once more and aimed to push southward.
