Maternus

 

Leader of an anti-Roman uprising in A.D. 186–187 in Gaul and Spain.

After deserting from the Roman Army, Maternus united slaves, coloni, soldiers, and the urban poor and created an effective army that the Romans succeeded in routing only after sending several legions to Gaul. Maternus himself crossed the Alps with the remnants of his troops and entered Rome with the intention of assassinating Emperor Commodus. Betrayed by one of the insurgents, Maternus was executed.
