Chapter Summary

After Basil II conquered Bulgaria in 1018, members of the royal family and great nobles were co-opted in the Byzantine ruling class. Prusian, Vladislav's eldest son, received the title magister in 1018. There are speculations that he engaged in an attempt to restore the Bulgarian state tradition and even sought Hungarian help for his projects, but the evidence is meager. This seal belongs to the foundation established or endowed by him. The attribution of the seal is disputable, but it does seem to have belonged to Alusian, Vladislav's second son. In 1018 he was made a patrician, married a noble Armenian, and in 1040 was recorded as military governor of Theodosiopolis in Byzantine Armenia.
