About Daughter Branas / Vranas

Unidentified / Unnamed Daughter of Theodore Branas & Agnes / Ann Capet

Anna survived Emperor Andronikos' fall and is next heard of in 1193, when she is said by a Western chronicler to have become the lover of Theodore Branas, a military leader who fought on the empire's northern frontier. They did not a first marry............After the fall of Constantinople in 1204, Agnes derived respect from the Latin barons due to her being a former empress. According to Robert of Clari, Agnes had a bad reputation and could only talk through a translator because she did not know French and had spent most of her life in the Byzantine court............Anna and Theodore eventually married, at the urging of Latin Emperor Baldwin I of Constantinople, in the summer of 1204. Theodore Branas continued to fight for the Latin Empire and is last heard of in 1219, by which time Agnes had already disappeared from the historical record. They had at least one daughter, who married Narjot de Toucy.
