Byzantine emperor 912 - 913. "The youngest son of Basil I and Eudokia Ingerina, according to the vita of St. Basil the Younger, Alexander was co-emperor with his brother Leo VI from 879. During Leo's reign Alexander was at odds with his brother and was even suspected of plotting against him. After ascending the throne, Alexander demoted Leo's assistants (Himerios was imprisoned), possibly deposed Patr. Euthymios, and reinstated Nicholas I Mystikos. Zoe Karbonopsina was expelled from the palace. Alexander's administration had to face assaults from two directions: the Arabs attacked the area under the control of Melias, and Symeon of Bulgaria apparently invaded Byz. before Alexander's death..." -Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium
