      Eutropia (d. after 325) a woman of Syrian origin, who was the wife of Emperor Maximian.

      Marriage to Maximian and their children

      In the late 3rd century, she married Maximian, though the exact date of this marriage is uncertain. By Maximian, she had two children, a boy, Maxentius (c. 277-287), who was Western Roman Emperor from 306-312 and a girl, Fausta (c. 298)[1], who was wife of Constantine I, and mother of six children by him, including the Augusti Constantine II, Constantius II and Constans.

      Another daughter?

      There is some doubt as to whether Flavia Maximiana Theodora, who married Constantius I Chlorus, was the a daughter of Eutropia by an earlier husband[2] or whether she was a daughter of Maximian by an earlier anonymous wife[3].
