Description

Details

Born in Hispania, the Roman Empress Aelia Flaccilla was the wife of Theodosius the Great and the mother of the emperors Arcadius and Honorius. Like her pious husband, she was a staunch Christian. The theologian Theodoret quoted her as saying: ”To distribute money belongs to the imperial dignity, but I offer up for the imperial dignity itself personal service to the Giver.“ The Palatium Flaccillianum of Constantiople was named for her.
