The three enemies: Maurice - Phokas - Heraclius - crucial reigns in the transition from the Eastern Roman Empire into the distinct Byzantine Empire.

Michael III - he laid the groundwork for the revival of Byzantine power under the Macedonian dynasty.

John Comnenus - best Comnenian emperor, saved the state from a Pecheng invasion, restored large swathes of Asia Minor, contributed to the economic revival.

Theodore Laskaris - salvaged the Byzantine holdings in Asia after the Fourth Crusade, founded the Nicean Empire."

If they're lesser known it's because they're not important"

Basically the entire Macedonian dynasty period (including Romanos and John Tzimiskes)

anastasius I reformed the byzantine economy wih so much autisitic zeal that it allowed the byzantine empire to fund a professional army of some nature, and had left such a treasury surplus it funded a majority of justinians conquests and tributes. he is absolutely important if you consider justinian to be important."

"Heraclius: Wan a losing war against the Persians and went as far as Ctesiphon, made Greek the official language of the Empire

Alexios Komnenos: Founder of the Komnenos dynasty, was the one to ask the Pope for mercenary help against the Muslims leading to the First Crusade, which he orchestrated for the first year or so, recovered most of Anatolia and brought the Empire back from the brink of falling apart

Theodore I Laskaris: Defended Constantinople until its fall, first Emperor of Nicea, managed to stop the Latins from taking all the Byzantine lands and set the stage for the retaking of Constantinople

Michael VIII Palaiologos: Fouunder of the Palaiologos dynasty, retook Constantinople from the Latins and restored the Empire

Justinian "The Slit Nosed": Got deposed and had his nose cut off, proceeded to make a new one made of gold, and retook the throne

Romanos IV Diogenes: Famous for losing the Battle of Manzikert, opening the gates of Anatolia to Turkish hordes

a few interesting ones off the top of my head"

>As the sources narrate, at this moment of victory, the Seljuk sultan sought out Laskaris, who was hard pressed by the attacking Turkish troops. Kaykhusraw charged his enemy and gave him a heavy blow on the head with a mace, so that the Nicaean emperor, dizzied, fell from his horse. Kaykhusraw was already giving orders to his retinue to carry Laskaris away, when the latter regained his composure and brought Kaykhusraw down by hacking at his mount's rear legs. The sultan too fell on the ground and was beheaded. His head was impaled on a lance and hoisted aloft for his army to see, causing the Turks to panic and retreat.

Important for us Turks:
Romanos Diagones, arguably the only Emperor who is known by everyone. I assume he is more known than Augustus or Caesar, let alone Constantine or Justinian.
Heavily underrated in history:

"It's annoying when you read about an emperor that clearly could have been significant.

Maurice could have been great if he wasn't quite as heavy-handed. He was certainly financially prudent and had a good military mind. If he'd lived longer he could certainly have gone a long way to restoring the state of the empire similar to how it was before the plague of 541. His son and heir apparent Theodosius also seemed to not be a retard, which alongside the fact that he had five other sons, could have provided the foundations of a fruitful imperial dynasty. It's also likely that his peace with the Sassanids would have been maintained as long as he lived.

But of course, in typical Roman fashion, all that potential was thrown out of the window when some cunt army commander usurps the throne and fucks everything up."

currently going through The Byzantine Republic myself, which is pretty interesting as a break from the trend of making Byzantium some despotic state completely blinded to the Roman values they 'inherited'."
