Question: What Is the Year of the Six Emperors?
Answer: The year of the six emperors is A.D. 238. In this year there were six Roman emperors, beginning with Maximinus Thrax (Thracian) who had ruled from 235. His Praetorian Guard assassinated him. Before that happened, the Senate appointed Gordian I and Gordian II co-emperors. They lasted for 20 days. Pupienus and Balbinus were then made co-emperors, but they didn't last, either. The year's final emperor was Gordian III who ruled alone until 244.
