Leo VI the Wise (September 19, 866 - May 11, 912) was Byzantine emperor from 886 to 912. He inherited from his father Basil I an empire that was much larger and stronger than it had been since the height of the Roman Empire in the 2nd century. However, he and his father hated each other; it is possible that Leo was not Basil's son at all, but the son of Michael III, the emperor before Basil. Basil had almost had Leo blinded as a teenager. In 886, Basil died in a hunting accident, though he claimed on his deathbed that there was an assassination attempt in which Leo was possibly involved.

Leo completed work on the Basilica, the Greek translation and update of the law code created by Justinian I, which had been started during the reign of Basil.-wikipedia.en
