Ariadne - Augusta of Imperium Romanum from 473 to 515
Aelia Ariadne was the Empress consort of Zeno and Anastasius I of the eastern Roman Empire. She was a daughter of Leo I and Verina. Her mother was a sister of Basiliscus.

When Leo I died in 473, her son Leo II was crowned emperor as the eldest male relative of Leo I. He died ten months later, shortly after proclaiming his father Zeno co-emperor.

When Zeno died in 491, she was able to choose his successor for the throne and a second husband for herself in the person of Anastasius, a palace official.
