Empress Theodora ... she charmed Prince Justinian with her beauty and wit, & when he inherited the Byzantine Empire, he repelled the law that prevented government officials from marrying actresses & married her. In January 532, riots (the Nika Riots) broke out against the rule of Justinian. When he & his officials prepared to flee the empire, Theodora held a passioned speech that convinced them all to stay and fight.
