Description

Details

Ruling the Eastern Empire for nearly 20 years, Leo I, "The Greek," proved to be a capable ruler. He oversaw many ambitious political and military plans, aimed mostly at aiding the faltering Western Roman Empire and recovering its former territories, He is notable for being the first Eastern Emperor to legislate in Koine Greek rather than Late Latin. He is commemorated as a saint in the Orthodox Church.
