About Theodora Komnene

5. THEODORA Komnene ([1053]-after [1094/95]). Nikeforos Bryennios names (in order) "Maria, Eudocia et Theodora" as the three daughters of "Ioanni" and his wife Anna[120]. Nikeforos Bryennios records the marriage, after her father's death "matris voluntate", of "Ioannes…Comnenus curopalates…postrema Theodora [filia]" and "Constantino Diogenis iam imperatoris filio"[121]. The Alexeiad names "Theodora, the emperor's sister…widow of Diogenes's murdered son" when recording her reaction to an imposter pretending to be her husband who had been killed in Antioch[122]. The text names the son "Leon" but it is clear from the context that it must refer to Konstantinos, who was killed when his half-brother Leon was still an infant. She became a nun as XENA. m ([1068/71]) KONSTANTINOS Diogenes, son of Emperor ROMANOS Diogenes & his first wife [Anna] Alusiane [of Bulgaria] (-killed in battle Antioch [1074]).
