    Jovian, AD 363-364
    Had the shortest rule of all the Emperors?

    Nice ones @paddyman98
    Jovian had a short rule but was by no means the shortest.
    Not 100% sure who the shortest rule belongs to, but Quintillus ruled for somewhere between 17 and 177 days.

    Kudos to @LaCointessa! For a minute, there, I was wondering where you're metal detecting... :)

    The first name that came to mind was Quintillus! Of course a few folks like Silbannacus and whoever might have had lesser reigns...
