About Maryanh (Fictitious)

"Genealogical accounts which attempt to connect Empress Gregoria to the royal Sassanid dynasty of Persia are spurious and based on no factual evidence. These name her as daughter of the emperor Shah-Varez and his wife Dukhtzanan, herself the daughter of Chrosroes III Parver. They also provide Gregoria and Constantine III with a fictitious daughter, Manyanh, supposedly the wife of her Sassanid cousin, King Yazdagird III of Persia (632 – 651)." ("A Bit of History")

Sources

Catherine Russell's credentials, as described on her website, are that she is "a mature age student from Sydney University (1999 – 2006)," where she "studied the Roman Republican and Empire periods and Early Medieval British history."

She is not a world-renowned authority — just a woman who has taken some history courses and has had time to make a website.

NOT fictitious

Based on a website called "A Bit of History," someone has decided that Maryanh (or Manyanh) is "fictitious" and has removed her and her progeny from the genealogical lines.

The website "A Bit of History" does not have a credited author therefore it is impossible to give it any credence.

However, there are many citations elsewhere for the existence of Maryanh (or Manyanh). Among them are these:

WIKIPEDIA, citing the "Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constantine_III_(Byzantine_emperor)

Constantine and Gregoria married in 629 or perhaps early 630 and in that year their first child, Constans II was born. Their second child was another son, Theodosius. They also had a daughter named Manyanh who later married the last Sassanid King of Persia, Yazdgerd III and had issue.

ALSO, Ancestry.com has numerous citations for Maryanh (or Manyanh).

http://www.ancestry.com/genealogy/records/manyanh_84782084

ALSO, she appears in MyHeritage.com

I believe that the genealogy related to Maryanh/Manyanh needs to be corrected to reinstate her in her previous position as the daughter of Constantine and Gregoria.

Removing her affects many other genealogical relationships, so her reinstatement is important. "

By his wife Gregoria, the daughter of Niketas, Constantine III had two sons and a daughter:

Constans II, who succeeded his father as emperor Theodosius Manyanh, who married Yazdgerd III, last Sassanid Emperor of Persia
