About .... Sanudo, byzantine princess


8. [daughter . According to Miller[24], Emperor Theodoros bestowed the hand of his sister on Marco Sanudo after the latter was captured while attempting to take Smyrna. He quotes Laurentius de Monachis and several Italian chronicles which do not appear to be contemporary. According to Sturdza[25], "it is certain" that this marriage did not take place. It does seem surprising that Emperor Theodoros, the main opponent of the Latins, should have arranged the marriage of his sister to one of the newly arrived Latin rulers, assuming that he had any marriageable sisters at all[26].
