Eudokia, daughter of Philaretos, count of the walls, was Justinian II's first wife. She died in childbirth. Heartbroken, Justinian couldn't bear to do anything with their daughter, Epiphaneia; nor could he have sexual relations with other women for some time after Eudokia's death.

Literary comment[]

Little of Eudokia is recorded, including her death. It may be that Eudokia predeceased Justinian, or that she divorced him. Her death in child-birth is a literary invention.
