IOANNES Doukas Komnenos ([1128]-killed in battle Myriokephalon shortly after 17 Sep 1176). ... m ([1146]) --- Taronitissa, daughter of [IOANNES] Taronites [III] & his wife --- ([1125/30]-after 1176). ... Ioannes Doukas Komnenos & his wife had two children:

  • i) MARIA Komnene (1154-before Oct 1217). ...
  • ii) [ALEXIOS Komnenos (-1187). Niketas Choniates records that "Comnenus Alexius, Manuel imperatoris ex fratre nepos" rebelled against Emperor Andronikos[216]. The primary source which confirms his parentage more specifically has not yet been identified, but he may have been the son of Ioannes Doukas Komnenos. He could not have been the son of Ioannes´s brother Alexios, because of the Byzantine convention whereby sons were not normally named after their fathers, and no other son of one of the emperor´s brothers is known to have had sons. With Norman help, he was proclaimed emperor in Thessaloniki. Imprisoned and blinded 7 Nov 1185, he died in prison.]
