General: Trebonianus Gallus (Gaius Vibius Afinius Trebonianus Gallus Augustus), also known as "Gallus" was Roman Emperor from 251 to 253 AD, jointly ruling with his son Volusianus. Gallus was made emperor following the deaths of Trajan Decius and Herennius Etrsucs at the Battle of Abrittus, largely due to Gallus conspiring with the enemy. Initially co-ruling with Hostilian, the surviving son of Decius, Gallus soon appointed his own son, Volusianus as Caesar. Both Gallus and Volusianus were killed in August 253 after his army proclaimed Aemilianus as emperor, having lost faith in Gallus.
