Empress Aelia Eudoxia of Constantinople/Istanbul (d. AD 404)

Aelia Eudoxia was married to emperor Arcadius, the son of Theodosius I and Aelia Flaccilla. Empress Eudoxia ruled for nine years, from 395 to 404. Like her mother-in-law Aelia Flaccilla, Eudoxia supported Nicene orthodox Christianity and opposed Arianism. She brought many physical remains of Christian saints and martyrs to Constantinople.

Along with bishop Theophilus of Alexandria, empress Eudoxia opposed John Chrysostom because of how he denounced excessive luxury and disapproved when a statue of Eudoxia was dedicated outside of the Church of Holy Wisdom (Hagia Sophia) with public celebrations. In 403, Theophilus and Eudoxia brought up trumped charges against John, and he was removed as bishop and exiled. Eudoxia died in 404.
