Romanus IV, 1 January 1068 - 19 August 1071 A.D.
Romanus IV Diogenes was the second husband of Eudocia. Eudocia was regent for her son Michael, and it would seem she married Romanus IV to supply the Empire with an emperor. After he was taken prisoner during a military campaign against the Turks, Eudocia was restored to rule - a position, in reality, she had probably never left.
