Historical background



Justin II, nephew of Justinian I, married Sophia, the niece of Theodora, in 548. They were crowned on November 20, 565. Justin deprived of reason, it was in fact Sophia who governed with the help of Narses, general-in-chief in Italy, which she ends up disgracing. He did not know how to face the problems and the invasions of the Lombards in Italy, the Visigoths in Spain, the Sassanids in the East. Crazy, Justin was associated with Tiberius as Caesar from 574, and for the last four years he was the de facto reigner. Tiberius II was associated as august in September 578. Justin died on October 5.
