Flavius Arcadius
Birth: unknown, Spain
Death: May 1

Roman Emperor. He was born in approximately 377 AD, and was declared Augustus and co ruler of the Eastern Empire by his father, the Emperor Theodosius I, in 383 AD. He became Eastern Emperor in 395 AD with his brother ruling in the West, but from the outset was controlled by a minister, Rufinus. Rufinus was soon assassinated by Gothic mercenaries and replaced as the power behind the throne by the eunuch Eutropius. Arcadius' most significant new building work was the erection of a new forum in Constantinople, and in 399 AD he issued an edict ordering the demolition of all remaining pagan temples. In his later years he was dominated by the Praetorian Prefect Anthemius and was more concerned with appearing to be a pious Christian than attending to political and military matters. By the time of his death in 408 AD he was the ruler of his Empire in name only. (bio by: js)
