About Herina Eirene Irene Angelos

Isaac II Angelos

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The identity of Isaac II's first wife is unknown, but her name, Herina (i.e., Eirene), is found on the necrology of Speyer Cathedral, where their daughter Irene is interred. (It must be noted, however, that it would have been extremely unusual for a mother and daughter to bear the same name, unless the mother's name was monastic.)[2] Isaac's wife may have been a member of the Palaiologos family.[3] A possible foreign origin is also given to her due to having the same name as her daughter.[4][5] Their third child was born in 1182 or 1183 and she was dead or divorced by 1185, when Isaac remarried. Their children were:

Euphrosyne Angelina, a nun.

Irene Angelina, married first to Roger III of Sicily, and secondly to Philip of Swabia.

Alexios IV Angelos.

Margaret of Hungary

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not to be confused with Saint Margaret of Hungary.

Margaret (Margit) (1175 – 1223), was the eldest daughter of King Bela III of Hungary and his second wife Agnes of Antioch. Her maternal grandparents were Raynald of Chatillon and Constance of Antioch.

In 1185, Margaret married the Eastern Roman Emperor Isaac II Angelos. They had two sons:

John (Iōannēs) Angelos.

Manuel Angelos.

Her husband died in February, 1204. Later that year the widowed Margaret married Boniface of Montferrat, who was soon to become king of Thessalonica. To Boniface she bore a son Demetrius in 1207. In the same year, on his father's death, Demetrius became king of Thessalonica.


The identity of Byzantine Emperor Isaac II's first wife is unknown, but her name, Herina (i.e., Eirene), is found on the necrology of Speyer Cathedral, where their daughter Irene is interred. (It must be noted, however, that it would have been extremely unusual for a mother and daughter to bear the same name, unless the mother's name was monastic.)

Herina may have been a member of the Palaiologos family. A possible foreign origin is also given to her due to having the same name as her daughter. Their third child was born in 1182 or 1183, and Herina was dead or divorced by 1185, when Isaac remarried to Margaret of Hungary.

Her ancestry is not definitely known. She seems to have been related to the Comnenos family. The identification given here is one theory. Isenburg suggests that she was daughter of Adronikos I Comnenus by his third wife Téodôra Kulasina, but this seems to have been disproved. Although Andronicus had two daughters with the name Eirene, they are both otherwise accounted for. See Lindsay L. Brook, "The Byzantine Ancestry of H.R.H. Prince Charles, Prince of Wales," in The Genealogist (APSG), 2:1 (Spring 1981), pp. 3-51, especially note 19 on p. 39; and M. L. Bierbrier, "Modern Descendants of Byzantine Familes, " in Genealogists' Magazine, 20:3 (September 1980), pp. 85-96, at p. 89 (col. 177).
