Historical Notes:

Chosen by Emperor Isaac I Comnenus to succeed him after he abdicated, Constantine X proved to be an unpopular ruler, instituting policies that weakened the empire and alienated him from both the aristocracy as well as the people.  Under his rule, most of Italy was lost to the Normans, part of Armenia to the Turks, and Belgrade to the Hungarians.
