Eudoxia

Eudoxia

Eudoxia, d. 404, Roman empress of the East (395-404), daughter of a Frankish general and wife of Arcadius. She had a great influence upon her weak husband. She helped bring about the downfall of Eutropius, to whose intrigues she owed her marriage, and the exile of St. John Chrysostom, who had criticized her.
Eudoxia, or Eudokia (often Latinized as Eudocia; East Slavic Евдокия Yevdokiya) is the English language transliteration of the Greek feminine personal name Ευδοκία Evdokia. It was mainly popular in late antiquity and in the Middle Ages, but is still in use today.
