Untitled[edit]

The link for iconoclast needs fixing. It leads to a disambiguation page and it is not clear what the author of this would choose as the meaning of iconoclastVictuallers 18:28, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Constantine VI and Irene[edit]

Constantine VI and Irene, Constantinople, 780-790, gold 4.41g.

Here is a coin of Constantine VI and Irene. Feel free to insert it in the article. Cheers PHG (talk) 15:18, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Death year[edit]

In 797 Constantine was captured and blinded by the supporters of his mother, who had organized a conspiracy. According to most contemporary accounts, he died from his wounds a few days later, leaving Irene to be crowned as first Empress regnant of Constantinople.

Yet the infobox says he died in the year 802, five years after the above. What's the story? -- Jack of Oz [Talk] 04:08, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Clearly an error, probably somehow confused with Irene's death date. A Hungarian lexicon form 1914 is probably not the best source for a Byzantine ruler... Thanks for bringing this up. Constantine 06:51, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
