Abstract

Many Byzantine empresses of the eighth and ninth centuries are barely visible in the historical record, appearing in brief and often unfounded accounts. Nevertheless, it will be argued that, despite the problems inherent in the sources, these empresses are regularly depicted in ways that betray their active role in the private and public spheres.
