The Theodora Collection is named after Empress Theodora and wife of Emperor Justinian. Empress Theodora was distinguished for her beauty, wit and amusing character, and believed to be very influential in Justinian's rule of the Byzantine Empire. Justinian and Theodora rebuilt and reformed Constantinople and made it the most splendid city the world had seen for centuries, building or rebuilding aqueducts, bridges and more than twenty five churches. The greatest of these is Agia Sophia, considered the epitome of Byzantine Architecture and one of the architectural wonders of the world.
