After my list of Roman Emperors from Augustus to Theodosius, covering the Principate and the Dominate periods of Roman history, here is a list of Roman Emperors from the definite split of the Empire in 395, to 610 and the reign of Phocas.

While composing the list of the Emperors who left the most enduring impact upon the Roman world and the Roman state the criteria I had on mind was political shrewdness, ability to create a sustainable and relatively stable political, social and economic system which would enable the Empire to function properly and survive turbulent events, which the Roman Empire always had in abundance.
