Alexius I, Patriarch of Constantinople, was a member of the Monastery of Stoudios (founded 462), succeeded Eustathius as Patriarch in 1025. In 1034 he crowned Michael IV the Paphlagonian the favorite of Byzantine empress Zoë, who, to make way for him, procured the death of her husband, the Emperor Romanos III Argyros. He thwarted the attempts of John (the emperor's brother) to gain the patriarchal see in 1036, and died in 1043. Decrees of his are still extant.[1][2][3]
