    c) An adviser of Justinian Empress Theodora accomplished a lot when she was empress. She was the wife of Justinian, the emperor of the Byzantine Empire. Her most remarkable accomplishment was she gave women rights. The first rights were that women can own land. Also if women became a widow the income from the land would help her take care of her children. She is one of the reasons that women have rights. Empress Theodora also saved the empire when Nika revolted. Her final accomplishment was when angry tax payers threatened to take over the throne. Empress Theodora gave her husband advice and he took it. He told the tax payers and they backed down. She proved herself worthy and able to be a leader.
