Aged: 73.7 years
He was the founder of the Macedonian dynasty. Born in Macedonia of peasant stock, as a youth Basil worked as a groom in the imperial stables in Constantinople. He won the favor of Emperor Michael III (838-67), who made him his chamberlain. In 866 Basil, with Michael's consent, murdered the latter's uncle, Caesar Bardas (flourished 842-66), regent during Michael's minority (842-56), and became coruler of the Byzantine Empire with Michael. In 867 Basil had Michael assassinated. As sole ruler of the empire, he began the reform of the legal code completed by his son Leo VI (866-912), introduced other administrative reforms, and ended the Photian Schism between the Eastern and Western churches.
