Born under the cloud of illegitimacy. His real father far more powerful than anyone could imagine. The unlikely king who ignited a global movement. The world forever changed. His legacy—an empire reaching across centuries. His name? Constantine.
Constantine's astonishing rise from illegitimate son of an army commander to emperor of Rome is the stuff of fairytales. But he changed the course of history when he united Christianity with Roman power. His actions altered the way you think, the way you live, and even the way you believe.
