Flavius Arcadius (Greek: Ἀρκάδιος Arkádios; 1 January 377 – 1 May 408) was Roman emperor from 383 to 408. He was the eldest son of the augustus Theodosius I (r. 379 – 395) and his first wife Aelia Flaccilla, and the brother of Honorius (r. 393 – 423). Arcadius ruled the eastern half of the empire from 395, when their father died, while Honorius ruled the west. A weak ruler, his reign was dominated by a series of powerful ministers and by his wife, Aelia Eudoxia.
