why does this make me feel mad

Because he’s considered powerful, and she’s considered a whore.

"jolie-laide [jol-ee-led]"
(idiom) Only the French would have such a way to describe beauty. A wonderful slang expression, it literally means “pretty and ugly” but describes the type of feminine beauty that is human, and not manufactured by plastic surgeons. It’s a kind of fascinating quirkiness implying charisma, a face you want to keep looking at, even if  you can’t decide whether it is beautiful or not.  (via mirroir)

Irene of Athens (circa 752-803)
Art by Annie Wilkinson (tumblr)
After the death of her husband Leo IV in 780, Irene ruled the Byzantine Empire as regent for her son Constantine VI.  Almost immediately Irene’s rule was challenged by her husband’s brother. She thwarted the attempt by forcibly ordaining her brother-in-law as a priest which removed him from the line of succession. 
As empress regent, Irene had a major impact on the Eastern Orthodox Church.  In 787 Irene convened the Second Council of Nicaea which revived the veneration of icons (banned by the Eastern Orthodox Church in 730) and reunited the Eastern Orthodox Church with the Roman Catholic Church.
As Constantine matured, he began to resent his mother’s control.  Between 790 and 797 Constantine attempted to overthrow Irene, but he was an ineffective leader.  In 797 Irene deposed and blinded her only child.  She ruled alone until 802 when she was overthrown by her finance minister Nikephoros.  Irene died in exile a year later.
