Florentia Belliena (Florentia Belliena Anzoy Maria Sophia; b. 19 February 1986) is the current Autokrateira of Tarsas as the wife of Autokrator Romulus X.

Belliena is the eldest, and illegitimate child of Constantine Bellienus, Count of Durocortorum, and Maria Aurelia. Though acknowledged by her father since birth, she was primarily raised in Ravenna with her mother for the first five years of her life. In 2003, she married Autokrator Romulus X of Tarsas.

Early life and education

Florentia Belliena was born on 19 February 1986 at Prince Consort National Hospital, in Ravenna, Latium, to unwed parents Maria Aurelia and the future Constantine Bellienus, Count of Durocortorum. Belliena's parents were believed to have previously dated, through separated months before her birth. She was baptized into the Catholic Church three months later at a local Ravenna-based parish. She was educated at Lyceum Sancta Theodora in Ravenna for primary school. She later attended Saint Maria's School for Ladies in Castellum for secondary school, though dropped out in her last term and completed her education by private tutors in Tarsas.

Marriage to Romulus X

Belliena first met Autokrator Romulus X of Tarsas in 2001 while on vacation with her father and half-siblings. Their meeting was described "one of chance" according to Belliena during an interview in 2005. She says that . Ahead of Belliena's 16th birthday, a betrothal agreement was reached, which was announced the next week. She and Romulus would marry in March 2003, at a ceremony in Civitas Tarsae, Tarsas. Her wedding gown was designed by famed Latin fashion designer, and Angelos founder, Maurianus Angelos.

Belliena converted to Tarsan Orthodox a week before her marriage.
