Constantine I, also known as Constantine the Great, was a Roman emperor who ruled from AD 306 to 337. During his reign he reformed many aspects of the Empire, including the structure of the government in which he separated the civil and military powers. Constantine improved inflation with the creation of a new gold coin named Solidus and was successful with the Roman frontiers. He was the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity, and with the signing of the Edict of Milan in AD 313, he allowed for tolerance of the religion within the Empire.
