About Bayalun Palaiologina

m (f) (1330) --- Palaiologina, [illegitimate daughter of Emperor ANDRONIKOS III & his mistress ---]. She was the illegitimate daughter of Andronikos III according to Sturdza[158], but not shown as such in Europäische Stammtafeln[159]. She converted to Islam and adopted the name BAYALUN. Howorth says that “Uzbeg had married a daughter of the Greek Emperor. Ibn Batuta calls her the Khatun or Lady Beilun. This seems a generic name for princess, one so named, a wife of Uzbeg’s, died in 1324. She was doubtless a daughter of Andronicus II”[160]. From a chronological point of view, it is more likely that she was the daughter of Emperor Andronikos III. Howorth records that her husband permitted her to travel back to Constantinople with Ibn Batuta to visit her father and for the birth of her child[161]. Assuming that this journey formed part of Ibn Batuta’s second itinerary, it would be dated to the early 1330s which would also indicate that Andronikos III was the father of Uzbek’s wife.

Pare che Andronico abbia avuto una seconda figlia illegittima, che si convertì all'islam cambiando il nome in Bayalun, visto che era divenuta una delle mogli di Uzbek Khan dell'Orda d'Oro
