Alexander, c. September 879 - 6 June 913 A.D.

Joint rule as Junior emperor with Leo VI (his brother), c. September 879 - 11 May 912 A.D.
Joint rule as Senior emperor with Constantine VII (his nephew), 11 May 912 - 6 June 913 A.D.
Alexander was the younger brother of Leo VI and co-ruler throughout Leo's reign, but apparently he had no desire to participate in the government at all. After Leo's death Alexander ruled for one year as senior emperor. He stopped paying tribute to the Bulgars which had serious consequences in the years following his death.

Byzantine Empire, Basil I Alexander & Leo VI, 867 - 886 A.D.

|Basil| |I|, |Byzantine| |Empire,| |Basil| |I| |Alexander| |&| |Leo| |VI,| |867| |-| |886| |A.D.||miliaresion|
Leo VI was a scholar who had little time for foreign affairs, as a result the empire declined. The Bulgars and Arabs became problematic. He completed the legal system started by Basil. He married four times in the quest for a male heir, putting him in conflict with the church. He was eventually barred from attending St. Sophia.
