Pulcheria, Augusta 4 July 414 - July 453 A.D.
Hailed as Augusta at 15 years old, Pulcheria was the true ruler during her brother's reign from 414 to 450 A.D. She was responsible for destruction of all Pagan temples in the Mediterranean. This type was minted during the reign of her husband, Marcian. At age 51, she selected Marcinian as the successor of her brother, Theodosius II. She married him to legitimize his rule, however, Pulcheria remained chaste.
