Michael I Rhangabe, 2 October 811 - 11 July 813 A.D.
Joint rule with Theophylactus, 25 December 811 - 11 July 813 A.D. After Nicephorus I lost his life fighting in Bulgaria, the wounded and dying co-emperor Stauracius passed the Empire to his brother-in-law Michael. The new emperor called back some of Nicephorus' reforms and recognized the empire of Charlemagne. His regime was toppled when the Bulgar Kahn Krum defeated another Byzantine army.
