Hitler look alike[edit]

Which "Maximin" Roman Emporer is said to be a split image of Adolf Hitler? Not only was it a case case of perfect physical likeliness but both were ruthless tyrants. Maximin was put to death by his own soldiers who rebelled against his rule. Hitler had to kill himself so that the whole world might not tear him to peaces.

Why disambig. if not actually 'Maximin'?[edit]

It makes sense for the saint, the Praetorian guard, Maximin of Trier, Daniel Maximin, and Maximilian Kronberger. But Maximinus is questionable, and I don't see any good reason for Maximian or Maximianus. Are we just affixing possible misspellings?

"On the abdication of Diocletian and Maximian in 305, Galerius and Constantius succeeded as emperors. Galerius tried to increase his power, and after Constantius died in 306 he recognized Severus (d.307) as coemperor in the West. Severus and he attempted without success to put down the claims of Maxentius . After they were defeated and Severus was captured, Galerius had Diocletian approve the appointment of Licinius as emperor of the West. Constantius' son Constantine Constantine I and Maximin (d.313) then both claimed power."- From: The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition

I guess that Maximinus is definitely referred to this way.OckRaz (talk) 13:53, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
