Roman and Byzantine Monarchy

Do you consider the Byzantine monarchy as the successor of the Roman monarchy?

Hi,

Great question!!
I suppose since Constantine moved the court to Byzantium, it should be considered the continuation of the Roman court in a new location.

The Byzantine empire ran from 330 - 1453, according to the book "Byzantium". 1123 years is a fairly long run, and there were other rivals set up in Italy and Germany as rivals to Constantinople - the Holy Roman Empire from 800 could be considered also as a continuation of the Roman monarchy, I suppose.

The Greek Empire did not really continue the Roman traditions after the XVII th century. The Holy Roman Empire really did maintaining a close relantionship with Rome/Holy See.

One thing that struck me when reading up on Byzantine Emperors is the fact that so many of them were deposed and met a grisly end!

Hi,

Yes indeed, so many of them met a grisly end - "uneasy lies the head that wears a crown" - so apt....

And it seems, the Ottoman Empire continued to practice this tradition, as many Sultans met a brutal ending too!!!

Seeking aid against the resurgent Ottomans, John VIII Palaiologos ratified the Union of the Churches in 1439.
Constantine VII, who reigned 913 to 959, wrote manuals on statecraft (De administrando imperio).

That's very true and not to mention the brothers of the Sultan!

There's very little information on what happened to the body of Constantine XI Palaiologos after the fall of Constantinople,perhaps his remains were never found.
