Romanus Skleros

Brother of the mistress of Byzantine Emperor, Constantine Monomachus.

He was reputed to have seduced the wife of Maniakes which resulted in a bitter fued. Skleros then arranged for Maniakes' recall and ultimate fall from grace.

"For my part, I adhere to the maxim of antiquity: The throne is a glorious sepulchre."
