Eudoxia

Eudoxia (yōdŏkˈsēə) [key], d. 404, Roman empress of the East (395–404), daughter of a Frankish general and wife of Arcadius. She had a great influence upon her weak husband. She helped bring about the downfall of Eutropius, to whose intrigues she owed her marriage, and the exile of St. John Chrysostom, who had criticized her.
