Justinian's conquests in the West began inwhen Belisarius was sent to reclaim the former province of Africa with a small army of some 18, men, mainly mercenaries.

Start your review of Byzantium Write a review Shelves: adventurehistorical-fiction There are two kinds of epic novels: the kind such as Stephen King's The Stand where the characters start to feel like close, personal friends, and where you are constantly being blown away by the author's imaginative scope; and the kind such as Gai-Jin by James Clavell that seem to drag on endlessly month after month, as you stare at the bookshelf and wonder how much time you will have wasted if you give up and just start something different. What I have read is that he was particularly pious as a matter of fact keep in mind that this was his personal life and the affairs of the state. The importance of this decree is historical rather than political. The marital contract was broken in when relations between Basil and Louis broke down.

Persia was finally conquered by the Seljuk Turks who turned their attention westwards to Mesopotamia. A new Muslim dynasty in Egypt, which also took over in Palestine, stopped the Byzantine advance short of Jerusalem. As human morals and ethics are a work in progress, I believe a number of changes had to occur before we arrived at today's values. Or we may decide he is a mixture of the two.

Isaac handed him over to the people of the City, and he was killed on 12 September As I said earlier, Basil did not visit unnecessary cruelty or punishment on the non-combatant Bulgars once victory was assured.

The Normans finally completed the Byzantine expulsion from Italy in due to an ostensible lack of Byzantine interest in sending any support to Italy, and the Seljuk Turks, who were mainly interested in defeating Egypt under the Fatimids, still made moves into Asia Minor, the main recruiting ground for the Byzantine armies.

Copts were however not the only group migrating to fill the labor shortage in the Empire. As a final blow to the nobles, Basil II ordained that they would have to pay all the tax arrears of the delinquent peasants.

Basil never did reach his destination as the stress of the political situation coupled with his advanced age proved too much for his frail heart.

Perhaps far more importantly, the policies and legacy of Basil III would be finished. Soon after the death of Justinian inthe Germanic Lombards, a former imperial foederati tribe, invaded and conquered much of Italy.

His philo-Latin attitude did not win him many supporters either, and he was widely regarded as a failure in the centuries to come. The successes in the Italian peninsula opened a new period of Byzantine domination there.

In his later years, Basil's relationship with Leo was clouded by the suspicion that the latter might wish to avenge the murder of Michael III.

In Basil's time such institutions did not exist so we cannot expect him to abide by them. Under the direction of the thematic strategoi, 'tourmarchai' commanded two from to four divisions of soldiers and territory called 'tourmai.

Some have argued that this blind eye towards the flow of Latins was only possible because of Empress Eleanor pleading with her husband, but most current scholars see it is as a part of a grand strategy that sought to create an unstable ethnic mix in Mesopotamia while weakening Latin powers.
