Augusta - wife of Theodosius II

Eudocia, the daughter of the Athenian philosopher Léonce, married Theodosius II in 421. Her name was actually Athenais and changed his name to Aelia Eudocia at the time of marriage. She had a considerable influence on the court of Constantinople and her husband, supplanting the sister of the emperor, Pulcheria.

She died in 460, ten years after Theodosius II.
