Historical background


ZENO

(17/11/474-11/04/491)

Second part of reign

Zeno married Ariadne, the daughter of Leo I, around 466. Their son, Leo II, succeeded his grandfather in 474. In fact, it was Zeno who assumed power from February 9 as emperor, before Leo II died on November 17, 474. The following year, he had to face the revolt of Basiliscus and flee Constantinople. Having eliminated Basiliscus and his son in 476, he returned to the capital. A second revolt broke out in 484 with Léonce. It lasts four years. Zeno, hated, died of an epileptic fit in 491. His wife Ariadne married Anastasius.
