   Emperors from Constantine I to Constantine XI Palaeologus contributed their strength to the empire. Contributions in encouraging the growth of the church, establishing the doctrine of the church, arranging the decoration of public places, and leading the army to battle, unified the other elements of the society with a common icon which the people could see. The final emperor was so close to his people he refused to flee Constantinople when its fall was eminent and fought to his own death with his people in defense of his empire.
