Aelia Pulcheria (January 19, 399 453) was the daughter of the Eastern Roman Emperor Arcadius and Aelia Eudoxia. As the elder sister of Theodosius II, she held much of the power when he came to the throne as a child in 408. She took a vow of virginity to avoid being forced into a marriage, and tended to rely on the support of the various Germanic military officers she appointed, such as the Alan Aspar. By 416 Theodosius was capable of ruling by himself, but she remained a very strong influence, having had herself proclaimed Empress in 414. ; 292 pages
