Arcadius Emperor of the Roman Empire (East) from 383 to 408.
Arcadius was emperor of the East between 383 and 408 AD. He was the eldest son of Theodosius I and his first wife Aelia Flaccilla, and brother of the Western Emperor Honorius.

Arcadius was a weak ruler, and his reign was dominated by a series of powerful ministers and by his wife, Aelia Eudoxia.

Eudoxia's influence was strongly opposed by John Chrysostom, the Patriarch of Constantinople, who felt that she had used her family's wealth to gain control over the Emperor. Eudoxia used her influence to have Chrysostom deposed in 404, but she died later that year.

Arcadius was dominated for the rest of his rule by Anthemius, the Praetorian Prefect. He died, only nominally in control of his Empire, in 408.
