Who in the World Was the Acrobatic Empress? The Story of Theodora
She came from obscurity to rule an empire and change the course of history. And she could do a mean backflip.
Discover the intriguing story of Theodora in the illustrated junior-reader Who in the World Was the Acrobatic Empress? (Also available as an audiobook!)
The Emperor Justinian could not decide what to do. His people were rioting. An angry mob poured through the streets, looting, setting fires, and destroying houses and taverns. If they reached the palace, they might kill him. Justinian’s trusted advisers pressed him to run to the port and sail away, giving up his throne to save his life. He turned and looked at his wife, the wisest person in the room. What would she, the Empress Theodora, urge him to do?
This junior-reader biography features illustrations by Jeff West.
Also available as an audiobook performed by Jim Weiss.
