In the 231-232 North Alexander marched against the Persian king Ardashir I, and Mesopotamia at the time managed to return under the authority of Rome. The emperor and his mother were killed by mutinous troops in Germany. Riots broke out because of attempts to buy peace at the Alamanni, against whom Alexander had made a campaign. The new army proclaimed emperor Maximian.
