Justin II, 565-578
- the nephew of Justinian, along with Tiberius the commander of the imperial guard, he seized the throne, and attempted to rebuild the imperial economy - from 568-571, the small German tribe of the Lombards invaded Italy and took over the northern and central sections, and the empire was too weak, Italy too exhausted, to defeat them - in 574, Justin became insane, and the empire went to his wife, Sophia, and Tiberius
