Komnena Nemanjić

Komnena Nemanjić (Serbian Cyrillic: Комнена Немањић; fl. 1208 - 1215) was the Duchess consort of Demetrius Progoni, the megas archon of Kruja, and later Gregory Kamonas, the archon of Elbasan. She was the daughter of Serbian King Stephen II Nemanjić (r. 1196-1228).[1]

Life

Komnena was born to King Stephen II and his wife Eudokia Angelina, and was thus a niece of Emperor Alexios III Angelos.[1] She had three brothers: Stephen Radoslav (r. 1228–1233), Stephen Vladislav I (r. 1233-1243) and Predislav (the third Serbian Archbishop as Saint Sava II, after uncle Sava). She married Demetrius in 1208, and a brief alliance was formed between the two countries amidst conflicts with the Republic of Venice. After Demetrius died in 1215, the power was left to Komnena,[2] who soon married Greco-Albanian lord Gregory Kamonas, who took power of Kruja,[3] strengthening relations with Serbia, which had been weakened after a Serbian assault on Scutari. She had a daughter with Gregorios who married Golem of Kruja.[4]
