The Primary Chronicle names David, son of Igor, and Volodar, son of Rostislav, recording that they captured Ratibor, agent of Vsevolod Grand Prince of Kiev, and established themselves as princes at Tmutorakan[194]. They were expelled in their turn by Oleg Sviatoslavich who returned from Constantinople in 1083. David was installed as Prince of Volynia by his uncle Vsevolod Grand Prince of Kiev 1086 after the expulsion of his cousin Iaropolk Iziaslavich. He was expelled from Volynia in the following year when his cousin Iaropolk was restored, but after the latter's murder restored again[195]. He was installed as Prince of Dorogobuzh at the conference of Uvetichi 30 Aug 1100[196].

     ; Per Med Lands:
     "KONSTANTINOS Monomachos ([1005/1010]-11 Jan 1055, bur Monastery of Mangana). Psellos names "Constantine the son of Theodosius…the last scion of the ancient family of the Monomachi in the male line" when recording that Empress Zoe chose to marry him[1655]. His birth date is estimated from Psellos describing him as a "young man" at the time of the accession of Emperor Romanos III[1656]. Although well-born and held in respect, neither Emperor Basileios II nor Emperor Konstantinos VIII promoted him to office, for they were suspicious about his relations with the Skleros family after his second marriage[1657]. Nevertheless, Konstantinos appears to have enjoyed a close relationship with Empress Zoe, especially during the reign of Emperor Mikhael IV, although the latter fabricated charges against him and exiled him to the island of Lesbos. After her joint accession with her sister, Empress Zoe recalled Konstantinos from exile and married him, despite the Byzantine church's prohibition of third marriages[1658]. He was crowned 12 Jun 1042 as Emperor KONSTANTINOS IX. He started his reign with another flush of largesse, which exhausted his treasury[1659]. His general Giorgios Maniakis recaptured the eastern part of Sicily from the Arabs, but was ordered to withdraw by the emperor before he could push his advantage further. Resentful of this treatment, Maniakis rebelled and was acclaimed emperor by his troops, but was killed in battle in 1043 en route to Constantinople. Leon Tornikios (who had courted Emperor Konstantinos's sister Euprepia) rebelled, was proclaimed emperor Sep 1047, and besieged Constantinople but he was captured and blinded[1660]. After several years of lengthy dispute over the standardisation of the liturgy, the Patriarch Mikhael Cerularios in 1055 excommunicated the papal legates in Constantinople (who had just pronounced his own excommunication) and triggered the final separation of the Orthodox church from the Roman Catholic. Emperor Konstantinos suffered from a debilitating illness which attacked his joints and produced partial paralysis[1661]. Cedrenus records the burial of Emperor Konstantinos the day he died "in Manganis"[1662].
     "m firstly ---. Psellos records that "Constantine the son of Theodosius…the last scion of the ancient family of the Monomachi in the male line" had "in the first place [become] the son-in-law to the outstanding member of court society but his wife fell ill and died"[1663]. There is no indication in the text who this might indicate.
     "m secondly (before 1025) --- Skleraina, daughter of BASILEIOS Skleros & his wife Pulcheria Argyre (-before 1034). Psellos records the second marriage of Konstantinos, arranged by Romanos Argyros before he became emperor, to "the daughter of his sister Pulcheria, who in the past had been married to Basil Sclerus", stating that she was her parents' only child[1664]. Zonaras records that, after the death of his first wife, Konstantinos married "imperatoris Romani nepte ex fratre"[1665]. According to Psellos, she died before her husband's exile to Lesbos[1666].
     "m thirdly (11 Jun 1042) as her third husband, Empress ZOE, widow firstly of Emperor ROMANOS III and secondly of Emperor MIKHAEL IV, daughter of Emperor KONSTANTINOS VIII & his wife Helena --- (980-1050).
     "Mistress (1): MARIA [Skleraina], daughter of --- (-[1044], bur Monastery of Mangana[1667]). Zonaras records that, after the death of his second wife, Konstantinos was unable to marry a third time but took as his mistress "consobrina uxoris suæ…adulescentula…et nobili Sclerorum familia orta"[1668]. Psellos records that "the niece of his late wife" became mistress of Konstantinos Monomakhos, the future Emperor Konstantinos IX, after the death of his second wife, being unable to marry her because of the Orthodox church's prohibition of third marriages[1669]. As Psellos, in an earlier passage, records that the second wife of Konstantinos was her parents' only child[1670], the word "niece" cannot be interpreted in its strict sense in this text. The editor of the edition of Psellos which has been consulted states that she was the sister of Romanos Skleros and granddaughter of Bardas (children of an otherwise unrecorded brother of Basileios Skleros), but the primary source on which this is based has not so far been identified[1671]. If this is correct, she and her brother must have been born from an otherwise second marriage of Basileios Skleros. Psellos hints that this might be correct when he refers to her in later passages as "Sclerena"[1672]. Another possibility is that one of Maria's parents was the daughter or son of either Pulcheria Argyre or Basileios Skleros (the parents of Konstantinos's first wife) by a second marriage: Psellos does suggest that Pulcheria and Basileios's marriage terminated early when he states that "…Pulcheria…in the past had been married to Basil Sclerus"[1673]. The primary source which confirms her name has not so far been identified. She followed him into exile on Lesbos in 1034. She was recalled to Constantinople after her husband's accession but was unpopular, her presence causing a riot 9 Mar 1044. Eventually, she was introduced openly to the Palace as her husband's mistress, acting as a junior consort, and was granted the title Augusta[1674]. Psellos records the death of "Sclerena" and the emperor's grief[1675].
     "Mistress (2): (after 1044) GORANDUXT of Georgia, daughter of GIORGI I King of Georgia & [his wife Mariam of Vaspurakan]. Psellos records that the emperor "fell in love with…one of our hostages from Alania…the daughter of the king there"[1676]. She became the emperor's mistress and was granted the title Augusta[1677]. Zonaras records that, after the death of Empress Zoe, Emperor Konstantinos fell in love with "adulescentulam quondam Alani principis filiam, obsidem Romanis datam" and installed her as "Augustam"[1678]. The Georgian Chronicle records that Emperor Konstantinos IX requested "of Bagrat his sister Goranduxt"[1679]. The Georgian Chronicle records that "Georgi" died leaving "two sons Bagrat and Demetre and two daughters"[1680]. The source contains no indication of the name of the mother of the two daughters."

     In recent years Genealogics has adjusted it's line. At one point, Genealogics showed Romanos as the grandson of Photeinos (son of Bardas). As of April 2020, Romanos seems to have disappeared from Genealogics.

Bardas Phokas Domestikos of the East died in 959.5
     ; Per Wikipedia (Fr.):
     "Bardas Phocas (grec moderne : ?????? ?????) (vers 878 – vers 968) est un notable et général byzantin da la première moitié du xe siècle, père de l´empereur Nicéphore II Phokas et du curopalate Léon Phocas le Jeune.
     "Bardas était issu du clan Phocas, l´une des plus grandes familles de l´aristocratie militaire anatolienne. Son père était Nicéphore Phocas l'Aîné, un éminent général qui se distingua en Italie.
Biographie
     "En 917, Bardas participa à la désastreuse bataille d´Anchialos sous les ordres de son frère aîné Léon Phocas l´Aîné. En 941, il fut gouverneur du thème des Arméniaques et contint avec ses troupes locales les attaques des Rus´ menés par Igor de Kiev en Bithynie, avant l´arrivée de l´armée byzantine menée par Jean Kourkouas qui les chassa définitivement.
     "En 945, il fut nommé commandant suprême de l´armée byzantine orientale par l´empereur Constantin VII Porphyrogénète. Profitant des tensions entre l'émir d'Alep et l'Égypte, il occupa en 948 et 949 les villes de Germanicia et d'Erzeroum. En 950 Ali Sayf al-Dawla envahit la Cappadoce, mais dut ensuite battre en retraite, abandonné de certains de ses alliés. Le 26 octobre, Bardas Phocas lui tendit une embuscade et détruisit une grande partie de son armée. En 951, Bardas Phocas empêcha de nouveau l'émir d'Alep d'envahir la Cappadoce et déplaça la suite du conflit en Cilicie et en Mésopotamie. Dans les années qui suivirent, il n'arriva pas à progresser1.
     "En 953, il fut vaincu et grièvement blessé par l´émir lors de la bataille de Germanicia et fut remplacé par son fils Nicéphore en 955-956.
     "Lorsque celui-ci monta sur le trône, il décerna à son père le titre extrêmement prestigieux de césar. Bardas mourut en 968 à l'âge de 90 ans.
Famille
     "De son épouse (dont le nom reste inconnu), sœur de Constantin Maleïnos et de saint Michel Maleïnos, Bardas Phocas eut plusieurs enfants :
** une fille, femme de Diogène, stratège en 944, arrière-arriére-grands-parents de Romain IV Diogène
** une fille, femme de Romain (?) Kourkas
** l'empereur Nicéphore II Phocas
** Constantin, stratège de Séleucie, fait prisonnier par les Hamdanides en 949 et mort empoisonné dans un cachot six ans plus tard selon Kédrènos.
** Léon Phocas le Jeune

     "BARDAS Fokas, son of NIKEFOROS Fokas & his wife --- (-969, bur Constantinople, Monastery Ta Gastria). Theophanes Continuatus names "Barda et Leonis" as children of "Nicephorus…dux in Thracesiorum themate"[1331]. Theophanes Continuatus names "Bardas Phokas" during the account of the war with Bulgaria (in 918)[1332]. Cedrenus records that, after his restoration (944), Emperor Konstantinos VII appointed "Bardum Phocam" to "magistri honore" and "domesticum scholarum Orientis"[1333]. Theophanes Continuatus records that "Constantinus… Romani gener" invested "Bardam Phocæ filium" with "magistri dignitate" and as "scholarum domesticum", dated to the year of his restoration (944)[1334]. Zonaras records that "Nicephori pater Phocas Bardas" sought refuge "in Magnam Dei ecclesie", during the build-up to his son’s taking over as emperor from the context[1335]. Zonaras records that Emperor Nikeforos installed "Bardas…pater" as cæsar[1336]. Emperor Konstantinos VII's De Ceremoniis Aulæ records that "Irene, filia Bardæ Cæsaris…[et] Cæsaris Bardæ" were buried in "monasterii, ta Gastria vel Gastriorum dicti, ecclesia"[1337].

; Per Ravilious [2004]: "The following chart lays out the relationships in the Phokas family, including the fact that the Emperor John I Tzimiskes was a nephew of the Emperor Nicephorus II, and 1st cousin of Sophia Phokaina (the subject wife of Constantine Skleros). I would assume that the relationship indicated here, with Theophano shown as a blood kinswoman or of John Tzimiskes, is the basis for Gunther Wolf's assigning Theophano's parentage to Constantine Skleros and Sophia Phokaina."

The relationship of NN Sklerina, wife of Andronicus Dukas, is a possibility - as noted previously in another thread, Christian Settipani drew on the Chronographia of Michael Psellus to show that the wife of Andronicus Dukas was a descendant of Pantherios Skleros, and either a daughter [I think granddaughter] or niece of Constantine Skleros [1]. This raises added interest in the genealogical connections through the Phokas family, as the descendants of the Western Emperor Otto II (through his daughter Matilda) would be near relations to the Byzantine Emperor Constantine X, and the descendants of his brother Caesar John Dukas.2 GAV-31.

     "The following brief outline of the family of Emperor Basileios I is mainly based on information set out in two works by his grandson, Emperor Konstantinos VII, which were composed during the 940s[1009]. It is not known what original source material may have been available to Emperor Konstantinos at the time he was writing. However, the author must have been tempted to glorify his own ancestry, especially if there was no way in which his assertions could be contradicted. In this respect, the omission of the name of Emperor Basileios's own father, and any details about his father's life, is telling. It is possible that, at the time Emperor Konstantinos was writing, some individuals still alive may have had personal recollections of information about the emperor’s paternal great-grandfather. It would therefore have been unwise for the writer to have embellished the story as it related to Basileios’s parents, the safer course of action being to omit precise information. The emperor would have been on safer ground if he wished to exaggerate the status of more remote ancestors, whom no living person would have known. The result, which identifies the paternal grandparents of Emperor Basileios as Hmayeak/Maiktes and the daughter of "Leon", appears improbable if Basileios was indeed of peasant origins as asserted by Liudprand and Zonaras. According to Liudprand, "Basilius imperator augustus… Macedonia humili fuerat prosapia oriundus" but he gives no further details[1010]. Zonaras states that "Basilius" was "ex Macedonia, parentibus obscuris ortus", but adds that chronicles written about him "contrive" his descent "ab Arsacidis"[1011].
     "HMAYEAK. Of Armenian origin, allegedly descended from the Arsacids although this is dubious if the origins of Emperor Basileios were modest as discussed above. Known as MAIKTES in Greek, the Vita Basilii records that he left Asia Minor for Macedonia durin[g the reign of Emperor Konstantinos VI [780/97] and married in Macedonia during that time[1012]. The primary source which confirms his Armenian name has not yet been identified.]
     "[m ---, daughter of LEON & his wife ---. The Vita Basilii records that "Leonem…filiarum unam" married "Maictes"[1013]. According to Cedrenus, "Maictes" married "Leonem…unamque ex eius filiabus"[1014]. Settipani refers to the theory this Leon was the same person as the future Emperor Leon V, a hypothesis originally proposed by Adontz[1015]. This would be difficult to sustain chronologically if Emperor Basileios I was born in 813. Settipani suggests that he was actually born in [836]. He cites no source on which this is based[1016], but the hypothesis is inconsistent with the family’s capture by Krum Tsar of the Bulgarians which is recorded in the Vita Basilii (see below). The alleged connection appears dubious if it is correct that the origins of Emperor Basileios were modest.]"

He cites no source on which this is based[1016], but the hypothesis is inconsistent with the family’s capture by Krum Tsar of the Bulgarians which is recorded in the Vita Basilii (see below). The alleged connection appears dubious if it is correct that the origins of Emperor Basileios were modest.]"

Leo V "the Armenian" (?) Emperor of Byzantium died on 25 December 820 at Constantinople, Byzantium; murdered.5
     ; Per Genealogics:
     "Leo was born in 775, the son of Bardas Patrikios. He married Theodosia, daughter of Archavir, prince of Kamsarakan, and they had a daughter who would have progeny, marrying Hmayeak/Maiactes/Myakes, a noble of Adrianople.
     "When Bardanes Turcus and Nicephorus I were fighting over the Byzantine throne in 803, Leo at first joined Bardanes but later sided with Nicephorus. Leo distinguished himself as a general under Nicephorus and Michael I, and he became 'strategus' (general) of the Anatolikon district of the empire.
     "He took part in the campaign of 813 against the Bulgars. However when Michael refused the peace terms they offered, the Asian troops under Leo deserted at the Battle of Versinkia, near Adrianople. Leo then deposed Michael and, in July 813, replaced him.
     "About this time Krum, the Bulgarian Khan, had reached the walls of Constantinople. Leo succeeded in drawing him back and concluded a treaty with Krum's successor Omortag, which determined the boundary between the two countries and provided 30 years of peace.
     "In March 815 Leo deposed the Orthodox patriarch Nicephorus and convoked a synod for the following month that reimposed the decrees of the Iconoclast synod of Hieria of 754, which had opposed the use of icons (religious images).
     "Leo was assassinated on 25 December 820 during a Christmas service in the church of Hagia Sophia by friends of Michael the Amorian, whom Leo had condemned to death the day before on a charge of treason. After the murder Michael ascended the throne as Michael II."5

; Per Med Lands:
     "LEON "the Armenian", son of BARDAS & his wife --- (-murdered Constantinople 24 Dec 820). Genesius records Leon’s immediate ancestry, naming "Leo…imperator, Bardæ quidam patricii filius, sed genus ducens ex Armenia"[832]. Genesius records that Leon grew up at Pidra in the theme of Anatolikon[833]. Theophanes Continuatus records that Leon served under "ducem Bardanium cognomento Turcum", who governed "quinque Orientalium thematum", but deserted to Emperor Nikeforos after Bardanes rebelled (in Jul 803) and was appointed commander of the foederati, defeating the Arabs in many encounters[834]. According to Symeon Magister, Leo was "homo statura pusillus" and therefore called "Chamæleon"[835]. The Anastasii Historia Ecclesiastica ex Theophane records "Leonem patricium et prætorem Orientalium", at the end of his work, in the first year of the reign of Emperor Mikhael I[836]. He contributed to Emperor Mikhael I's defeat by the Bulgars at Versinikia by withdrawing his troops instead of following the emperor[837]. He was appointed patrikios and strategos of the theme of Anatolikon by Emperor Mikhael I[838], who proposed Leon as emperor before accepting the throne himself[839] although, according to Theophanes, Leon remained in exile until after Mikhael became emperor. He was pressed by his troops to depose Emperor Mikhael after the latter's defeat by the Bulgarians, at first refused but agreed when the Bulgars approached Constantinople and was proclaimed Emperor LEON V, entered Constantinople 11 Jul 813 and was crowned 12 Jul 813 at Hagia Sofia[840]. He was faced with continuing threats from the powerful Bulgarian army, which sacked Adrianople and advanced as far as Constantinople. Emperor Leon finally negotiated a thirty year peace with the Bulgarian leader Omurtag[841]. He profited from this new found peace to resurrect the iconoclast movement. He appointed Theodotos Melissenos as Patriarch of Constantinople 1 Apr 815, and a synod led by the latter reversed the declarations of Nikaia and reverted to the decisions of the iconoclast council of 754, ordering the destruction of the icons once more[842]. He was murdered in front of the altar of Santa Sofia by supporters of Mikhael of Amorium, who succeeded as Emperor Mikhael II. Theophanes Continuatus records that Emperor Leon died in Dec after reigning seven years and five months[843]. His corpse was removed in cheap rags to the island of Prote[844].
     "m (before Jul 813) THEODOSIA, daughter of ARSABER patrikios & his wife --- (-after [824]). Theophanes Continuatus names "Theodosia…Arsaberis filia" as the wife of Emperor Leon V[845]. Genesius names "Augusta Theodosia…Arsaberis filia, patricii…et quæstoris"[846]. It is probable that her marriage took place before her husband's accession, assuming that her son Symbatios was not a new-born baby when crowned co-emperor in Apr 814. If Symbatios had been new-born at the time, it is likely that he would have been baptised Konstantinos immediately and referred to in the sources as porphyrogennetos. As it is, "Symbatios" (=Smbat) is one of the typically Armenian names which Leon would have used for his children before his accession. Genesius records that "uxor eius Procopia" (referring to the wife of Emperor Mikhael I) referred to the wife of Emperor Leon as "Barcam" (boat) after her husband's accession[847], presumably as a term of derision. Genesius records that "coniuge et quatuor filiis…" were sent "in Proten insulam"[848]. Theophanes Continuatus records that Emperor Mikhael II sent "Leonis…uxorem…cum quattuor liberis…" to the island of Prote in exile[849]. She and her son Basileios were joint addressees of a letter from Theodoros the Stoudite written to her in [821/24] after her exile in which her father is named[850]. Zonaras records that, during her exile, she and her sons were allowed to live on the revenues from some of their estates and to have attendants[851]."

; Per Med Lands:
     "The family origins of Emperor Leon V have been the subject of debate, both regarding his remote ancestry and his more immediate parentage. The distant ancestry of the family of Emperor Leon V is hinted at by Georgius Monachus who records that Leon was "ex Armenia…oriundus…ex Assyriorum gentis…natus…ex Sennacherib…sobole…qui cum imperio olim Assyriis præfuit"[804]. This passage appears to have provided the basis on which Theophanes Continuatus states that it is said that Leon was from Armenia "genus partim ex Assyris partim ex ipsis Armeniis propagatum fuit"[805]. These alleged Assyrian antecedents of Emperor Leon V were discussed in detail by Adontz[806]. He quotes biblical, other pre-Christian era sources, and Armenian legends in an attempt to assess the likelihood that Leon descended from Sennecherim, whose reign as Assyrian king is dated to the end of the 7th century B.C. Adontz also discusses Emperor Leon’s more recent Armenian ancestry, but manages to conclude that "l’empereur Léon V descendait de la famille princière arménienne des Arzrounides. Cela est certain" without speculating on a precise line of royal descent[807]. It is true that, if it is decided that Leon descended from Armenian royal stock, the tradition of Assyrian ancestry follows as a matter of course. This would be consistent with Armenian belief that their early medieval royal dynasties descended from Assyrian exiles. It is also true that the names of Leon’s known immediate family members are typically Armenian. However, Adontz does not appear to consider the possibility that either the emperor or his father may have risen through the ranks from relatively obscure, at least non-royal, origins. Genesius records Emperor Leon’s father as having held the Byzantine title patrikios[808]. This confirms his elevated position in the Byzantine administrative hierarchy. However, the title could have been granted as a reward for successful military service (under Emperor Konstantinos VI, who also had strong Armenian family connections, see above), rather than in recognition of a royal family background. If Emperor Leon V had been closely related to the Armenian kings, it is likely that the contemporary sources which have provided details. As it is, they only hint at an illustrious ancestry with the oblique references which are quoted above. An alternative perspective is provided by Jenkins, who suggests that "Assyrians" in fact meant "Syrians" and that this alleged ancestry was suggested by Emperor Leon's religious opponents, the iconophiles as a means of denigrating the emperor[809]. Whatever the truth, the data now available in surviving primary sources is insufficient to be conclusive regarding these hypotheses. However, it seems clear that Emperor Leon’s ancestry is far less "certain" than Adontz suggests.
     "1. BARDAS . Theophanes names "Bardas nuper Armeniacorum dux, Constantinus vicarii spatharius et excubitorum domesticus, Theophylactus Rangabe filius et Duodecim insularum drungarius" as conspirators against Emperor Leon IV in favour of his half-brother Nikeforos (in 780) and records their exile[810].
     "same person as…? BARDAS (-killed in battle Markellai 20 Jul 792). Patrikios. The Anastasii Historia Ecclesiastica ex Theophane records that "Michael magistratus, Lachanodraco et Bardas patricius ac Stephanus protospatharius…" among those killed in battle "XII Kal Aug", in the second year of the reign of Emperor Konstantinos VI (792), at "castrum Marcellorum" in Thrace against the Bulgars[811].
     "same person as…? BARDAS . Patrikios. Genesius names "Leo…imperator, Bardæ quidam patricii filius, sed genus ducens ex Armenia"[812]. It is not certain that these three references are to the same person but it looks likely. In particular, it appears probable that only one individual of the name Bardas would have held the dignity of patrikios at any one time. m --- (-after 820). The name of Bardas’s wife is not known. Theophanes Continuatus records that "Leonem…eius mater oblata" supposedly had a vision in which the Patriarch threatened her son if he continued attacking icons and pleaded with him to change his policy[813]. Theophanus Continuatus records that, after her son was murdered, Leon’s mother was sent to the monastery of the Despotai with Leon’s widow[814]. Bardas & his wife had [two] children:

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Theodosia (Greek: ????????; c. 775 – after 826) was the Empress consort of Leo V the Armenian. Theodosia was the daughter of Arsaber, a Byzantine patrician. The name and rank of her father were recorded by both Genesius and Theophanes Continuatus, the continuer to the chronicle of Theophanes the Confessor. The name of her mother is unknown.[1]
Family
     "Arsaber led a failed revolt against Nikephoros I in 808. According to George Finlay: "In the year 808, however, a conspiracy was really formed to place Arsaber a patrician, who held the office of questor, or minister of legislation, on the throne. Though Arsaber was of an Armenian family, many persons of rank were leagued with him; yet Nicephorys only confiscated his estates, and compelled him to embrace the monastic life."[2]
     "The name of her father indicates Armenian origins. However the names of his ancestors are not known.[1] Genealogical theories suggest Kamsarakan ancestry.[3][4][5]
Marriage
     "Theodosia married Leo V the Armenian. Leo was a strategos under Nikephoros I. His support for the Emperor against the revolt of Bardanes Tourkos was decisive for the victory of the former. Leo managed to rise to the throne upon the abdication of Michael I Rangabe in 813.
     "Theodosia is the only wife of Leo mentioned by primary sources. However an interpretation of the text of Theophanes Continuatus has Leo marrying a daughter of Bardanes Tourkos. An interpretation which would make Leo a brother-in-law of Thekla, first wife of Michael II. Warren Treadgold for example uses this theory in The Byzantine Revival 780–842 (1988).
     "Genesius records that Prokopia, wife of Michael I, referred to her successor Empress as "Barca".[1] Treatgold has suggested this was the actual name of a first wife of Leo, which would mean Theodosia married Leo once he was already emperor. However the word is also the Greek word for "boat", suggesting it was only a derisive nickname for Theodosia.[1][6]
     "Whatever her status as wife was, Theodosia was the Empress when Leo V was assassinated on Christmas, 820. Michael II rose to the throne and exiled Theodosia and the sons of Leo V to the island of Proti. Joannes Zonaras records that they were not forced to take monastic vows. Instead they were allowed to inherit part of the personal property of Leo V and the associated revenue. They were also able to have their own attendants. Theodore the Studite sent a letter to the deposed Empress sometime between 821 and his own death in 826.[1]
Children
     "All known children of Leo V are traditionally attributed to Theodosia as well. Genesius records four sons:[7]
** Symbatios (?????????), renamed Constantine, co-emperor from 814 to 820. Castrated and exiled following the assassination of his father.
** Basil. Castrated and exiled following the assassination of his father. Still alive in 847, recorded to have supported the election of Patriarch Ignatius of Constantinople.
** Gregory. Castrated and exiled following the assassination of his father. Still alive in 847, recorded to have supported the election of Patriarch Ignatius of Constantinople.
** Theodosios (died in 820). Died soon after his castration.

     "The existence of a daughter has been debated by historians and genealogists. The tentative name "Anna" has been suggested.
Possible descendants
     "Nicholas Adontz in his book The age and origins of the emperor Basil I (1933) expressed a theory that Leo V and Theodosia were ancestors of Basil I. The theory was partly based on the account of his ancestry given by Constantine VII, a grandson of Basil I. Also the accounts given by Theophanes Continuatus.[6]
     "Basil I, according to this accounts, was a son of peasants. His mother is named by Constantine VII as "Pankalo". The name of his father was not recorded. The names Symbatios and Constantine have been suggested. Both were names used by the eldest sons of Basil. With eldest sons of Byzantines typically named after their grandfathers.[6]
     "The paternal grandfather of Basil is named as Maiactes. The paternal grandmother was not named but was identified as a daughter of "Leo", a citizen of Constantinople. Adontz identified this Leo as Leo V. Which would make Leo V and Theodosia great-grandparents of Basil I.[6]
     "Adontz also suggested Constantine VII had made a mistake in the generations separating Maiactes and Basil. Suggesting Basil was a great-grandson of Maiactes and not old enough to have seen the wars with Krum of Bulgaria. Making Leo V and Theodosia actually fourth-generation ancestors of Basil.[6]
     "The theory has been accepted by several genealogists, including Christian Settipani in his search for descent from antiquity. The name "Anna" has been suggested for the daughter of Leo V and Theodosia, because it was given to daughters of Basil I, Leo VI the Wise, Constantine VII and Romanos II. Almost every emperor that would claim descent from this woman.[6]

     "Arsaber (en grec : ???????, de l'arménien Arshavir) est un noble byzantin qui tente sans succès de s'emparer du trône impérial en 808.
Biographie
     "Arsaber est un noble d'origine arménienne avec le rang de patrice. Il sert comme questeur du palais sacré sous l'empereur Nicéphore Ier (802-811). En février 808, il prend la tête d'une conspiration avec plusieurs hauts dignitaires ecclésiastiques1. Il est difficile de connaître les raisons exactes de cette alliance inhabituelle entre des fonctionnaires civils et des membres du clergé. Elle pourrait refléter les tensions au sein de l'élite byzantine face aux mesures fiscales rigoureuses de Nicéphore. En outre, sa politique religieuse et la promotion de Nicéphore Ier de Constantinople comme patriarche de Constantinople alors qu'il n'est qu'un simple laïc déplaît à plusieurs autorités religieuses. Quoi qu'il en soit, le complot est découvert. Les participants sont arrêtés, châtiés, leurs propriétés confisquées avant d'être exilés. Arsaber est tonsuré et exilé dans un monastère de Bithynie. Sa fille, Théodosia, est mariée au futur empereur Léon V l'Arménien. Ce dernier est durant un temps un favori de l'empereur Nicéphore avant d'être mis à l'écart, probablement en raison de ses liens avec Arsaber2.

     "Arsaber (Greek: ???????, from Armenian Arshavir), was a Byzantine noble who attempted an unsuccessful usurpation of the Byzantine imperial throne in 808.
Biography
     "Arsaber was a noble of Armenian origin, holding the rank of patrikios, and served as quaestor of Emperor Nikephoros I Logothetes (r. 802–811). In February 808, a group of secular and ecclesiastic officials, who were dissatisfied with Nikephoros's rule, formed a conspiracy and acclaimed Arsaber as emperor.[1][2][3] Nikephoros, however, discovered the plot and arrested the participants, who were beaten, had their properties confiscated, and were ultimately exiled. Arsaber himself was tonsured and exiled to a monastery in Bithynia. Arsaber's daughter, Theodosia, had been married to the future Emperor Leo V the Armenian (r. 813–820).[1][2] Leo, then a general and hitherto enjoying Nikephoros's favour, was exiled for a time, likely on account of this connection to Arsaber.[4]
