 Bibliography - Michael V
Michael V Calaphates (1015 - August 24, 1042) (in Greek language a aaft, meaning the caulker), was the nephew and successor as Byzantine emperor of Michael IV and adoptive son of his wife Zoe of Byzantium.
His announcement of the event in the morning led to a popular revolt, he was dethroned after a brief reign of four months, blinded, and relegated to a monastery.
His unpopularity seems largely due to his attempts at Byzantine aristocracy and bureaucracy, which were strongly resented by the dominant classes, while the lower classes considered him a common usurper.

 Byzantium   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Byzantine Empire made great contributions to civilization: Greek language and learning were preserved for posterity; the Roman imperial system was continued and Roman law codified; the Greek Orthodox church converted some Slavic peoples and fostered the development of a splendid new art dedicated to the glorification of the Christian religion.
The emperor was concerned that icons played too prominent a role in Byzantine life and that their common use as godparents, witnesses at weddings, and objects of adoration violated the Old Testament prohibition of the worship of graven images.
The emperor Theophilus (829-842), for example, was a student of Muslim art and culture, and Constantinople's painting, architecture, and universities benefited from the vigor of Islamic culture.

 Rome and Romania, Roman Emperors, Byzantine Emperors, etc.
Decius and Herennius were killed in battle by the Goths in 251 -- the only Roman Emperors to die in battle (against external enemies) besides Julian (against the Persians, 363), Valens (against the Goths again, 378), Nicephorus I (against the Bulgars, 811), and Constantine XI (with the fall of Constantinople to the Turks, 1453).
With Valens as the senior Emperor, he didn't wait for assistance before moving to put down a revolt by the Visigoths, who had recently been admitted as refugees from the Huns but were now rising up against mistreatment by their hosts.
Also noteworthy as a benchmark for the beginning of Byzantine history in the time of the Leonines is the apparent disappearance of the traditional Roman tria nomina, the three names of praenômen, nômen, and cognômen, which have been given with previous Emperors.

 Behind the Name: Roman and Byzantine Emperors   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Augustus was the first Roman Emperor, emerging from the civil wars that followed the death of his adoptive father Julius Caesar in 44 BC to become the ruler of a realm that stretched from Spain to Syria, Northern Africa to France.
The Byzantine Empire, as the Eastern Roman Empire was known, was one of the important cultural centers of the Middle Ages.
The language spoken was Greek and most of the names of the emperors were Greek, or else Greek forms of Christian biblical names, and the title Basileus (meaning "king" in Greek) was used for the emperor.

Note: It is difficult to determine when exactly the Roman Empire ends and the Byzantine Empire begins; the Roman Empire was actually split into eastern and western halves for administrative purposes by Diocletian in 284.
Others date the beginning of the Empire even as late as Heraclius (who made Greek the official language), and numismatists note the monetary reforms of Anastasius I in 498, which used the Greek numbering system.
Of course, the Byzantines themselves continued to think of their empire as Roman for over a millennium.

 RULERS OF BYZANTIUM (RŌMANIA)
  After the Byzantine government recognized Simeon I as Emperor of the Bulgarians in 913, the imperial title was further augmented as Emperors and Autocrats of the Romans (basileis kai autokratōres tōn Rōmaiōn).
                Technically, like their Roman predecessors, Byzantine emperors were supposed to be elected by the people, acclaimed by the army, and crowned by the patriarch.
  Byzantine splinter states maintained their independence in Epirus, Nikaia, and Trebizond, but it was Nikaia which, under the leadership of Iōannēs III Doukas Batatzēs, came into a position to reclaim the capital.

 Conservative History Journal
At least, it's not as much of a crisis as the one that hit the sausage world 1,200 years ago when Byzantine Emperor Leo V declared the sausage-makers would be "severely scourged, smoothly shaved and banished from our realm forever".
Be that as it may, Leo VI seems to have led as colourful a life as his predecessor and successors, many of whom were assassinated (Leo V, apparently, as he was praying in the Hagia Sophia).
But there is one thing Leo VI did do that marks him out from the long list of Byzantine emperors: he outlawed the production of blood sausages after cases of food poisoning.
