Konstantia Kaloethina came to the kingdom of Calontir in 2005, after a few years of hearing about this magnificent historical world called the Society for Creative Anachronism. She is proteged to Master Gabriel andvaka Kjotvason.
She moved to the Barony of Forgotten Sea in 2012, after living in the Crown Lands just north of the Barony.
Konstantia is the youngest daughter of Cosmas Gabrielus Kaloethes and Italica filia Pelagius, silk merchants recently ennobled under Justinian and Theodora. Betrothed to Diomedes filius Basilius, and living in the courts of Justinian, serving as a lady-in-waiting of Aelia Sophia, wife of Justin, who is the emperor’s nephew. Born a few days after the end of the Nika riots, she is a daughter of revolution and yet of faith, as the completion of Hagia Sophia was also in the same year. Educated under the reforms of Empress Theodora, Konstantia speaks Greek and Latin. She is a patroness of the arts and a patroness of a small home for orphans and widows.
