  Roman Emperors DIR Theophano, wife of Romanus II and Nicephorus Phocas
Theophano may not have been as fl as she was painted: at least, her conspiracy against Nicephorus had the possible merit of protecting the interests of her two sons, the rightful emperors.
Theophano was unable to persuade Nicephorus otherwise, despite repeated quarrels, and so took John as her lover and instigated him to kill the emperor.
Theophano attempted twice to influence the transfer of power, in both cases hoping to ensure the protection of the rights to the throne of her young sons.

Romanus' father Constantine VII Porphyrogentius avoided the mistake of preventing his son to marry the girl of his choice--as had several of his precedessors, culminating in their downfalls--by blandly pretending that Anastaso was of noble birth.
However, Theophano badly miscalculated in the hope of becoming the wife of the new ruler.
However, shortly afterwards, she made a reappearance in the capital, seeking asylum in the Hagia Sophia, where, however, she was forcibly removed on the orders of the Chamberlain Basil, who condemned her to exile in distant Armenia.

The marriage between the 17-year-old emperor, heir apparent to the throne, and the 12-year-old Theophano was blessed by Pope Johannes XIII in Rome.
Although strictly speaking, it is Otto II’s deed, the document is regarded as the “marriage document of Theophano”, for it testifies an endowment of goods in her favour.

 Recipies for Reverie with Janet Theophano
Janet Theophano, adjunct associate professor of Folklore and Folklife and associate director of the College of General Studies, was browsing and discovered an interesting little book of what looked like poetry but was actually a collection of recipes.
Gradually, Theophano began to see the cookbook as "a memoir, a diary, a record of life." Thus began her study of cookbooks and her understanding of them as "something between a scrapbook and an autobiography."
Theophano, the curator, shaped the exhibit into several case studies demonstrating social developments as reflected by the cookbooks of the period.

And yet, Theophano noted, the moralizing tradition survives to this day in tomes such as Alice Waters’ “Chez Panisse Café Cookbook,” with its concern over world hunger.
Food has been a means for Theophano herself to comment on culture and society as well.
