Historical background


BASILE I, and CONSTANTIN LEO VI

(6/01/870-3/09/879)

Basil is associated with the throne from May 26 866 by Michael III the Drunkard and became sole emperor after the murder. He reigns only one year, and associates to the throne in 868 his favorite son Constantine, who died in 879. Under the reign of Basil I, Syracuse fell to Islam and in 878, Sicily is permanently lost. The reign of Basil was a period of consolidation. The Emperor summoned all the legal works of Justinian best known as the Basilica. Basil died in a hunting accident.
