General: In his early life, Justin I was a peasant of Thraco-Roman or Illyro-Roman descent. Following a barbaric invasion, he took refuge in Constantinople, where he joined the the palace guard, the excubitors. Due to his ability and notable bravery, he rose through the ranks and ultimately became their commander. When the Emperor Anastatius died, Justin I was elected as the new emperor by the council. His reign marked the beginning of the first golden age of the Byzantine Empire under the Justinian Dynasty. Notably, Justin I ended the Acacian schism thus restoring relations with the Roman Church. He was supported by his brilliant nephew Justinian who would later become his successor.
