Honorius in Roman Biography Ho-no'ri-us, (Fi.avius,) a Roman emperor, the second son of Theodosius the Great, was born at Constantinople in 384 A.n. At the death of his father, in 395, he inherited the Western Empire, (his elder brother Arcadius having obtained the Eastern,) under the guardianship of Stilicho, a famous general, whose daughter he married. His court was held at Milan, and afterwards at Ravenna. About 402 Alaric the Goth invaded Italy, and was defeated by Stilicho at Pollentia. In 408 Stilicho was put to death by order of Honorius, who was a man of weak and vicious character. From this event may be dated the fall of the Roman power. Rome was taken and pillaged by Alaric in 410, and the empire went rapidly to ruin. He died, without issue, in 423, and was succeeded by Valentinian III. See Girbon, " History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire;" Sozomkn, " Historia Ecclesiastica;" Jornandes, "De Rebus Geticis ;" Tiixemont, "Histoire des Empereurs.

Honorius in Wikipedia Flavius Honorius (9 September 384 15 August 423), commonly known as Honorius, was Western Roman Emperor from 395 to 423. He was the youngest son of Theodosius I and his first wife Aelia Flaccilla, and brother of the eastern emperor Arcadius. Even by the standards of the rapidly declining Western Empire, Honorius' reign was precarious and chaotic. His throne was guarded by his principal general, Flavius Stilicho, who was successively Honorius's guardian (during his childhood) and his father-in-law (after the emperor became an adult). Stilicho's generalship helped preserve some level of stability, but with his execution, the Western Roman Empire moved closer to collapse...
