About Manuel Anemas

... 7. MANUEL Anemas, son of --- (-[1146/47]). It is not known how Manuel Anemos was related to the previous family group, if at all. From a chronological point of view, it is likely that there were two intervening generations between the four brothers Anemos shown above and Manuel. Panhyperprotosebastypértatos. m THEODORA Komnene, daughter of Emperor IOANNES II & his wife [Piroska] [Eirene] of Hungary ([1116]-12 May 1157[56]). The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. She became a nun after her husband died. Manuel Anemas & his wife had at least four children:

  • a) ALEXIOS Komnenos Anemas. The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. m ANNA Dukoblastos, daughter of ---. Her name Anna is recorded in a poem by Proedros, in which she is called Dukoblastos without giving any parentage. According to Sturdza[57], she was Anna Komnene Doukaina, daughter of Andronikos Komnenos & his wife Evdokia Doukaina. The primary source on which this is based is not known. Alexios and his wife are not named in the documentation of the church of St Mary Pammakaristos (which names other members of the family of Andronikos Komnenos), suggesting that the hypothesis may not be correct. It is assumed that the parentage suggested by Sturdza is no more than a guess[58]. According to Sturdza[59], this couple were the ancestors of the Komnenoi-Anemoi family.
  • b) --- Komnene Anema. The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. m IOANNES Angelos, son of MIKHAEL Angelos & his wife ---. Pansébastos and sébastos. 1157/66.
  • c) [--- Komnene Anema. m ---. The name of her husband is not known. One possible child:]
    • i) [THEODORA Komnene] . Stiernon suggests that Theodora was the granddaughter of Theodora, daughter of Emperor Ioannes II[60], but this seems to be based on no more than guesswork. According to Kerbl, her betrothal to King Béla must have taken place after the murder of Emperor Andronikos I, with whom King Béla III did not enjoy close relations[61]. It was presumably arranged by Andronikos's successor Emperor Isaakios II Angelos. Theodora became a nun in 1186. m ANDRONIKOS Lapardas, son of --- (-[before 1185]). Sébastos. He was blinded by Emperor Andronikos I, and entered the monastery of Pantepopte. Betrothed (after Sep 1185) to BÉLA III King of Hungary, son of GÉZA II King of Hungary & his wife Ievfrosina Mstislavna of Kiev (1149-23 Apr 1196, bur Székesfehérvár, transferred to Coronation Church Budapest).
  • d) as 4th child Zoe? (On Geni: Stanley Welsh Jr.)
