Marcus Piavonius Victorinus was emperor of the secessionist Gallic Empire from 268 to 270 or 271, following the brief reign of Marius. Victorinus, born into an affluent family, served in the Roman Army as a tribunus praetorianorum under Postumus, the first of the so-called Gallic emperors. Victorinus held the aforementioned title in 266/267, and was co-consul with Postumus in 267 or 268. After the death of Marius, Victorinus was hailed emperor by the troops located at Augusta Treverorum (Trier, Germany), and he was recognized by the provinces of Gaul and Britain, but not Spain, which reunited with the Roman Empire. Victorinus was murdered in 270 or early 271 by Attitianus, one of his officers, whose wife Victorinus had supposedly seduced. Victorinus' mother, Victoria (sometimes Vitruvia), continued to hold power after the death of Victorinus and she arranged for his deification and, after considerable payment to the troops, the appointment of Tetricus I as his successor.
