What is the definition of "usurper" used for this list? Fore example, people like Carausius and Postumus who are categorized as usurpers in their articles are not represented here. Poulsen 07:40, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
Agreed. Carausius is a usurper (very successful too!) in my book. fluoronaut 11:15, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Why no mention of usurpers later on? Could do with the inclusion of people like Maximus of Hispania (often very confusing because of the other Maximus and putting him on this page would make matters clearer).fluoronaut 11:15, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Needs some decent refs to primary sources, which are multitudinous and often in competition with each other. fluoronaut 11:15, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
"Complete until the advent of the tetrarchy in the end of the 3rd century"?
I compared this to a list of usurpers in R.W. Burgess, "Principes cum Tyrannis: Two Studies on the Kaisergeschichte and Its Tradition", Classical Quarterly, 43 (1993), pp. 491-500, & found a number of discrepencies. Because this list is based on the postulated Kaisergeschichte, it may be that this list is correct & the Kaisergeschichte is wrong -- although I'm surprised Odaenathus & Zenobia aren't listed or mentioned here, since they are often considered usurpers. Or, to put it another way, if the Gallic Empire is included, so should these Palmyrene rulers. -- llywrch (talk) 18:49, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
