    Eudocia was the daughter of the powerful Patriarch of Constantinople Michael Cerularius. In 1059 she married the newly crowned emperor Constantine X, an elderly civil servant ill-suited to the succession of military crises that soon plagued the Empire. When Constantine died in May 1067, Eudocia assumed the regency for her two sons, Michael VII and Constantius. The mounting crises soon forced her to marry a distinguished general, Romanus Diogenes, who ascended the throne as Romanus IV on 1 January 1068. The coinage of Eudocia as senior ruler is quite limited.
