Ah, OK.

There are three clauses that depend on intellegit:

1) neque dari donativum sub nomine Galbae promissum

2) neque magnis meritis ac praemiis eundem in pace quem in bello locum: here the verb could be an implied esse or the dari of the previous clause could apply to this one as well. I'm leaning more towards the implied esse interpretation but I'm not entirely sure. Both are possible and in any case the essential meaning doesn't really change.

3) praeventamque gratiam apud principem a legionibus factum: here esse is implied with preventam.

Let's see if that helps. If there are details of the clauses that you don't get, let me know.

So ...

neque magnis meritis ac praemiis eundem in pace quem in bello locum esse - this should be AcI

intellegit eundem locum esse in pace quem in bello - it is the same space (not sure in what meaning) in peace and in war
magnis meritis ac praemiis - not sure what kond of ablative ...

praeventamque gratiam apud pricipem a legionibus factum

that there is a better/higher inclination made with princeps (so the princeps is an agent of the inclination) - not sure what the legions did.

It is.
intellegit eundem locum esse in pace quem in bello - it is the same space (not sure in what meaning) in peace and in war
Don't forget the neque, which negates the clause. "There was not the same place..."
magnis meritis ac praemiis - not sure what kond of ablative ...
It's dative. "There was not the same place for great deserts and rewards in peace as in war", i.e. those things didn't have as much influence in peace as in war.

I guess I don't know enough context to know exactly what's meant here, but it's something like "favor had been prevented with an emperor made by the legions". Maybe the subject of intellegit thought he couldn't get the favor of an emperor who had been elected by the legions.
