This chapter focuses on Eudokia Ingerina, the wife of the founder of the “Macedonian Dynasty” Basil I (867–886). While Basil has been the subject of much attention, Eudokia has tended to be side-lined. The chapter puts her centre stage, analysing how she is prominently presented in texts and images from the reigns of Basil and her son Leo VI (886–912). The dynasty should be described as that of both Basil and Eudokia.
