LEO X. [Giovanni de' Medici] (1475-1521), pope from the nth of March 1513 to the ist of December 1521, was the second son of Lorenzo de' Medici, called the Magnificent, and was born at Florence on the i ith of December 1475.

 Roman Emperors - DIR Leo III
Leo was the son and heir of the committed iconoclast emperor Constantine V, who married three times: by his first wife, Irene the Khazar,[[1]] he had one son, Leo, in January 750; his second marriage was childless; and his third marriage, to Eudocia, produced five sons and a daughter.
Leo easily put down the conspiracy, which included a number of persons in the imperial service, and showed leniency to those involved by having them scourged and tonsured and banishing them to the Cherson and the Klimata under guard.
Prior to this relationship between Leo and Irene appear to have been good: at least, in 776/7 he married her cousin to Telerig, the Bulgarian ruler, who had taken refuge in Constantinople and was made a patrician and baptised in the Orthodox religion.

Leo VI (the Wise) came to the throne in A.D. 886, after his father, Basil I, died in a hunting accident (see no. 143).
Leo was called "the Wise" not because he was a particularly sage ruler but because he was a noted scholar who finished the revision of the legal text, the Codex Justinianus, that Basil had begun, renaming it the Basilica for his father.
For reasons not yet clearly understood, Leo VI apparently did not mint solidi for the first twenty years of his reign.

 Milton V. Anastos - 18. Emperor Leo VI's fourth marriage
On the death of Leo in 912, his brother, the wastrel Alexander, became emperor (912-13), and recalled Nicholas.
But, within the Byzantine Church, the privilege accorded Leo VI was deemed to have been altogether exceptional, and was so described by the Constantinopolitan Council of 920, which settled this question and reconciled Nicholas and his followers with their opponents, Euthymius and Archbishop Arethas of Caesarea, the latter's staunchest supporter.
In Byzantium, clerical dissidents were always helpless against the emperor, and if Nicholas had retained Leo's favour, he could have ignored such protests (which Jenkins proves to have been hypocritical), and removed his opponents from their see.
