Claudius Gothicus, also known as Claudius II, was Roman emperor between 268 and 270 AD. He had served as an army officer under the previous emperor, Gallienus. During this period the Roman Empire was under threat of invasion by multiple tribes. Claudius led a successful military campaign against the Goths, an early Germanic people, at the Battle of Naissus which earned him the nickname 'Gothicus'.
