Flavius Arcadius, the elder son of Theodosius I and Aelia Flaccilla, was born in 377 A.D. And was raised to the rank of Augustus by his father in 383. On the death of Theodosius in 395, the empire was divided between his two sons, Arcadius taking the eastern division, and Honorius the western. The imperial brothers had inherited none of their father's great abilities, and in consequence both were constantly under the influence of the strong personalities in their courts. During the reign of Arcadius, the government of the eastern division of the empire was successively in the hands of Rufinus the praetorian prefect, Eutropius the eunuch, Gainas the Goth, the Empress Eudoxia and finally the praetorian prefect Anthemius. In may, 408 A.D., the feeble emperor expired in his palace at Constantinople and was succeeded by his seven- year-old son Theodosius II.
