Notable Note: Constantine was crowned in York, England

It’s true: Constantine the Great, the “Thirteenth Apostle” responsible for officially Christianizing Rome, was raised to Emperor in 306 in the Roman fortress of Eboracum, now known as York. It had been the imperial capitol of his father Constantius. There is now a statue of Constantine outside of York Minster cathedral, which stands over the area where the crowning took place.
