FOCAS FAMILY HISTORY

Focas or Phocas (Greek: Φωκᾶς), is the name of a Byzantine aristocratic clan from Cappadocia, which in the 9th and 10th centuries provided a series of high-ranking generals and an emperor, Nikephoros II Focas (r. 963–969). Its members and their clients monopolized the high command positions of the Byzantine army for much of the 10th century and led the successful Byzantine offensive against the Arabs in the East. As one of the leading families of the Anatolian military aristocracy, the Focades were also involved in a series of rebellions that laid claim to power and challenged the emperors at Constantinople. Their power was eventually broken by Basil II (r. 976–1025). Now the family trying to rebuild Adrianopolis to regain their Honor and Power in Byzantine Empire and to persuade the Emperor to give them back their noble status that they have lost with their rebellius actions three centuries ago.

*We hope that more Focas family members will come from Anatolia and more siblings will come of age so our family tree will grow more and more and become one of the major familes in Byzantine Empire. Backround stories of every member will soon be posted here and more personal information(age, character, physical appearence) will be up.
