Theodosius II was the son of the Emperor of the East, Arcadius, and grandson of the Roman Emperor Theodosius I, know as the great. His sister Pulcheria and wife Eudoxia were particularly prominent during Theodosius's reign. It was also under Theodosius II that the huge Theodosian walls of Constantinople were constructed and the law code known as the Codex Theodosianus was written, codifying many aspects of Roman law. He was succeeded by his brother-in-law Marcian, who had been married to Pulcheria.
