The Beefeaters (correctly called the Yeoman Warders) are a ceremonial guard for the Tower of London. The word Beefeater is often applied wrongly to the Yeomen of the Guard who are a ceremonial bodyguard for the monarch.

Traditionally, they carry a weapon called a partisan. The partisan is a spear with an ornate base mounted on a long pole. (Note - this is NOT the same as a halberd, which is a combination axe and spear on a long pole.)

What is the name of the emperor who was killed by his body guard in the fall of rome and the rise of byzantium?

There was not such thing as the fall of Rome and the rise of Byzantium. The term fall of Rome refers to the fall of the western part of the empire, not the fall of the city of Rome. This part of this empire fell under the weight of the invasions by the Germanic peoples. The eastern part was not affected by these invasions and continued to exist for nearly 1,000 years. Byzantine empire is a term which has been coined by historians to indicate the eastern part of the Roman empire after the fall of the western part. The people in question did not know this term and called their empire Roman Empire. Therefore, the so-called Byzantine Empire was the continuation of the Roman Empire. As for Byzantium, the name of this city changed to Constantinople more than 100 years before the Byzantine period. Therefore, there was no such thing as the rise of Byzantium either as a city of as an empire. Six Roman Emperors were killed by the imperial guard, but these were long before the fall of the western part of the Roman Empire
