Lucius Domitius Aurelianus, born in 212, was a Roman emperor in the era of the Dominate. He is especially famous for capturing Queen Zenobia of Palmyra and forcing Gallic emperor Tetricus into submission. He built a large wall to fortify the Empire and removed the barbarian threat in the East, all the while regaining the provinces of Gaul, Britain, Spain, Egypt, Syria, and Mesopotamia. He died in 275.
