- January 17th : Division of 395 : After the death of Emperor Theodosius I , the Roman Empire is divided between his two sons into a Western Roman and an Eastern Roman Empire . The idea of unity is never given up; there is still only one Roman Empire . The fall of the western empire , however, effectively prevented a reunification of the empire.
- The Western Roman Empire includes the dioceses of Britain, Gaul, the seven provinces (southern Gaul), Spain, Pannonia, northern Italy, southern Italy and Africa; these are subordinate to Honorius , the Western Roman emperor . Since both emperors are minors, Stilicho is appointed her guardian and imperial administrator.
- April 27 : The Eastern Roman emperor Arcadius marries Aelia Eudoxia , daughter of Bauto . It is possible that this hasty marriage was arranged by the eunuch Eutropios in order to curtail the influence of the general Rufinus , the guardian of the young emperor, who wanted to marry off his daughter to Arcadius.
- Stilicho secures the Rhine border against the Teutons . He dismisses the Visigoth army under Alaric I , which had fought at his side against Arbogast the previous year , to Lower Moesia , but there they rise up against the Romans; the Eastern Roman general Rufinus rejects the offer of help from his rival Stilicho: Greece falls victim to the raids of Alaric.
- The Western Roman imperial court is relocated from Trier to Milan .
