Eudokia Ingerina

   Mistress to Michael III (q.v.) and subsequently wife of Basil I (q.v.). Michael III's mother Theodora (q.v.) and the powerful minister Theoktistos (q.v.) forced Michael III to give her up. She was married to Basil I when he became co-emperor in 866. Her children included the future emperor Leo VI (qq.v.), whose father was probably Michael III and whose first wife Theophano (q.v.) Eudokia chose for him in a bride show (q.v.).
