Constantine IX succeeded Michel V and brought back to the court of Basil II girls, Zoe and Theodora. He married the second. Constantinople knew his reign an artistic renaissance at the expense of the Treasury. It is in 1054 that occurred the Great Schism between the Church of Constantinople and Rome, the origin of the birth of Orthodox no longer recognize the supremacy of the bishop of Rome. Constantine died in 1055. This is Theodora who succeeded him for just seven months, the last descendant of the Macedonian dynasty.
