Flavius Augustus Honorius, son of Theodosius I, was emperor of the West from 397 to 425 A.D. and brother of the eastern emperor Arcadius.

His reign of twenty-eight years was one of the most eventful in the Roman annals; the weakness and timidity of the emperor co-operated with the attacks of the Visigoths and Vandals in promoting the rapid disintegration of the empire. His influence on the current of events was purely negative.
