His father, Trebonianus Gallus, became Roman Emperor after being elected in the field by the legion, following the deaths of the previous co-emperors Trajan Decius and Herennius Etruscus. Trebonianus Gallus raised Hostilian, the son of Decius, to augustus, making him his co-emperor in June 251 AD. Volusianus was elevated to caesar in the same month. After the death, of Hostilian in November 251 AD , Volusianus was raised to augustus, co-ruling with his father. The short reign of Trebonianus Gallus and Volusianus was notable for the outbreak of a plague, which is reason for Hostilian's death, the invasion of the Sasanian 'Persian' Empire, and the raids of the Goths. Volusianus was killed alongside his father in August 253 AD, by their own soldiers, who were terrified of the forces of the usurper Aemilian which were marching towards Rome.
