Justinian I was a Byzantine emperor from 527-565. During his reign, Justinian sought to revive the empire's power by reconquering the lost western half of the historical Roman Empire. 1 of the most important figures of late antiquity & possibly the last Roman emperor to speak Latin as a first language, Justinian's rule constitutes a distinct epoch in the history of the early Middle Ages. The impact of his administration extended far beyond the boundaries of his time & domain.
