Galla Placidia

Aelia Galla Placidia (392 - November 27, 450) was the Empress consort of Constantius III, Western Roman Emperor. She also was the daughter of Roman Emperor Theodosius I and his second wife Galla. She herself was a fervant Christian and was involved in the building and restoration of various churches throughout her period of influence.
