Roman Emperors - DIR Leo III (1899 words)
Leo was the son and heir of the committed iconoclast emperor Constantine V, who married three times: by his first wife, Irene the Khazar,[[1]] he had one son, Leo, in January 750; his second marriage was childless; and his third marriage, to Eudocia, produced five sons and a daughter.
Leo easily put down the conspiracy, which included a number of persons in the imperial service, and showed leniency to those involved by having them scourged and tonsured and banishing them to the Cherson and the Klimata under guard.
Prior to this relationship between Leo and Irene appear to have been good: at least, in 776/7 he married her cousin to Telerig, the Bulgarian ruler, who had taken refuge in Constantinople and was made a patrician and baptised in the Orthodox religion.
