Auxilia Palatina

These men will live, and fight, and die in the defence of the Emperor.

'Auxilia palatina' were elite auxiliary troops that first emerged from the military reforms and expansion of Constantine the Great in AD325. Drafted from the local populace, auxiliaries often took the name of the tribe from which they were predominantly comprised, such as the Mattiaci and the Ampsivarii. The Notitia Dignitatum gives a fairly comprehensive list of units classified as auxilia palatina but does not give any direct reference to the strength of those troops. However, there is some confusion between auxilia and limitanei, who were specifically frontier troops. It can be assumed, therefore, that auxilia palatina were stationed in force behind the Empire's frontiers, in such places as Gaul, Iberia and Britannia.
