[9] Mehmed himself claimed descent from the Komnenos family via John Tzelepes Komnenos. [2][3] The first known member of the family, Manuel Erotikos Komnenos, acquired extensive estates at Kastamon in Paphlagonia, which became the stronghold of the family in the 11th century. Alexios’ father was John Komnenos, a senior military commander of the imperial guard (domestikos of the Scholai), and his mother, Anna Dalassena, was from a respected aristocratic family. [3] His maternal grandfather was St. Ladislaus. Manuel Komnenos was the fourth son of John II Komnenos and Piroska of Hungary, so it seemed very unlikely that he would succeed his father. The Palaiologoi ruled until the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. Children: His daughter, called the Damsel of Cyprus, married Thierry of Flanders during the Fourth Crusade and tried to claim the island. John II Komnenos “the Handsome” was emperor of the Byzantine Empire from 1118 CE to 1143 CE. It was, however, followed by a rapid decline, leading to the sack of Constantinople by the Fourth Crusade in 1204. The Komnenos dynasty produced a number of branches. Manuel was blinded at the same time and may well have died; at … Descendants of those emperors lived abroad, having married into the royal families of Georgia, Russia, France, Persia, Italy, Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia; this made it easier for the Komnenos family to ascend to the throne. After John died on 8 April 1143, his son, Manuel, was acclaimed emperor by the armies. Manuel Komnenos, (d. 1025), Solider from Comne, near Adrianople, later General of Emperor Basil II, granted lands in Castamon, Paphlagonia, married with issue. Andronicus was himself a son of Theodora Comnene, the youngest daughter of Emperor Alexios I Komnenos and Irene Ducaena. The last descendant of the dynasty is often considered to have been John Komnenos Molyvdos,[10] a distinguished Ottoman Greek scholar and physician, who became metropolitan bishop of Side and Dristra, and died in 1719. Manuel II Megas Komnenos (Greek: Μανουήλ Β΄ Μέγας Κομνηνός, Manouēl II Megas Komnēnos) (c. 1324–1333) was Emperor of Trebizond for eight months in 1332. Alexios III Angelos (Greek: Αλέξιος Γ' Άγγελος) (c. 1153 – 1211) was Byzantine emperor from 1195 to 1203. Through intermarriages with other noble families, notably the Doukai, Angeloi, and Palaiologoi, the Komnenos name appears among most of the major noble houses of the late Byzantine world. Having distinguished himself in his father's war against the Seljuk Turks, in 1143 Manuel was chosen as his successor by John, in preference to his elder surviving brother Isaac. The dynasty returned to the throne with the accession of Alexios I Komnenos, Isaac I's nephew, in 1081. [5], The 17th-century French scholar du Cange suggested that the family descended from a Roman noble family that followed Constantine the Great to Constantinople, but although such mythical genealogies were common—and are indeed attested for the closely related Doukas clan—the complete absence of any such assertion in the Byzantine sources argues against Du Cange's view. Manuel Erotikos Komnenos was the father of Isaac I Komnenos (reigned 1057-1059) and grandfather, through Isaac's younger brother John Komnenos, of Alexios I Komnenos (reigned 1081-1118). Much of Anatolia was recovered from the Seljuk Turks, who had captured it just prior to Alexios' reign. John's son Manuel ruled for another 37 years. After John died on 8 April 1143, his son, Manuel, was acclaimed emperor by the armies. Manuel III Megas Komnenos (Greek: Μανουήλ Γ΄ Μέγας Κομνηνός, Manouēl III Megas Komnēnos) (December 16, 1364 – March 5, 1417) was Emperor of Trebizond from March 20, 1390 to his death in 1417. A twelve year old child when his father Manuel died, Alexios II’s reign is a brief story of inept regency and opportunistic, long-awaited usurpation. Manuel’s widow, Maria of Antioch, and Alexios Komnenos, the protosebastos, spread their favor and the largesse of the imperial treasury narrowly but intensively over Italians and aristocrats. His claims to descent from the imperial dynasty of Trebizond, however, are most likely a fabrication.

Manuel inherited the throne of the Byzantine Empire when the reign of his father John II Komnenos came to an unexpected end following the emperor’s death in a freak hunting accident on 8 April 1143 CE. Béla III kept his word: as long as Manuel lived, he made no attempt to retrieve his Croatian inheritance, which he only afterwards reincorporated into Hungary.

One renegade member of the family, also named Isaac Komnenos, established a separate "empire" on Cyprus in 1184, which lasted until 1191, when the island was taken from him by Richard I of England during the Third Crusade. [41] Relations with Russia. When the eastern Empire was restored in 1261 at Constantinople, it was ruled by a family closely related to the Komnenoi, the Palaiologos family. Several weeks before the occupation of Constantinople by crusaders in 1204, one branch of the Komnenoi fled back to their homelands in Paphlagonia, along the eastern Black Sea and its hinterland in the Pontic Alps, where they established the Empire of Trebizond. A princess of the Trebizond branch is said to have been the mother of prince Yahya (born 1585),[citation needed] who reportedly became a Christian yet spent much of his life attempting to gain the Ottoman throne.
