GRATA HONORIA, was the daughter of Constantius III., emperor of the West [CONSTANTIUS III.], and Galla Placidia [GALLA, No. 2], and daughter of Theodosius the Great. The time of her birth is not known, but it may be estimated approximately by the marriage of her parents, which took place on Jan. 1, 417, and the birth of her brother, Valentinian III., younger than herself, which occurred in A. . 419. She fled into the eastern empire, with her mother and brother, upon the death of Honorius (A.

On the discovery of her condition, she was confined, but not in the palace, and then sent (A. D. 434) to Theodosius II. at Constantinople. Valesius has affirmed that Eugenius was put to death, but this assertion appears to be unsupported by testimony. In A. D. 450, after the death of Theodosius, she appears to have been sent back to her brother, Valentinian; for in that year Attila, anxious to find a cause of quarrel with the western empire, sent an embassy to Valentinian complaining of the wrongs of Honoria, claiming her as betrothed to him, and, with her, that portion of the empire to which she was entitled. Valentinian replied that she could not marry Attila, as she had a husband already; that women had no part in the succession to the empire, an
