Byzantine Empire Princess

Listed below are a few of the princesses of the Byzantine Empire:
Princess Anna of the Byzantine Empire was born on March 13th, 0963 in the city of, Constantinople, Turkey. Her father was Romanos II, Emperor of the Byzantine Empire and her mother is Theophano, Empress Of The Byzantine Empire. Her paternal grandparents were Konstantinos VII Emperor Byzantine Empire and Eleni LEKAPENE; her maternal grandfather is Anastaso Of The Byzantine Empire.

She had two brothers and four sisters, named Basileos II, Emperor Of The, Konstantinos VIII, Emperor Of The, Theophana (Skleros) Princess Of The, Theodora, Princess Of The, Theophano Princess Of The and Agatha, Princess Of The. She died at the age of 48 in 1011.

Theodora Palaiologina, Princess of Byzantine Empire was born around 1330 in Constantinople, Turkey. She died before December 1376. She was the daughter of Andronikos III, Emperor of the Byzantine Empire.

Otto I Holy Roman Emperor had requested a Byzantine princess for his son, Otto II, to seal a treaty between the Holy Roman Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire. The unwise reference by the pope to the ruler in Constantinople as “Greek” in a letter while Otto’s ambassador, Liudprand of Cremona, was in the Byzantine court had destroyed the first round of negotiations.

With the ascension of a new emperor who had not been personally been referred to other than as Roman Emperor, the treaty negotiations were able to resume. The arrangement of the marriage by Otto the Great was a political triumph: the bride was a princess from Byzantium. Theophano duly arrived in 972, arriving in grand style with a magnificent escort and bearing great treasure. Dressed in silks, she insisted on bathing daily, was quite literate, and most upsetting of all, she used a fork.

Chronographers mention the astonishment she caused when she “used a golden double prong to bring food to her mouth” instead of using her hands as was the norm. Theophano was also criticized for her decadence, which manifested in her bathing once a day and introducing luxurious garments and jewellery into Germany.

Byzantine Princess Anna Comnena was the daughter of Emperor Alexius Comnenus of the Byzantine Empire (or Eastern Roman Empire). When the first Crusaders reached Constantinople, Anna witnessed their arrival and their alien customs, and would later record her observations for posterity. Anna attempted to convince her father to disinherit his son in favor of her husband Nicephorus, but failed; after Alexius' death Anna conspired to overthrow her brother and failed again. She gave up her property and retired to a convent, where she wrote a history of the life and reign of her father in the Alexiad.

Maria Monomachus Princess of the Byzantine Empire was born about 1032 in Constantinople, Byzantium. She died in November 1067. Her father, Constantine IX Monomachus Emporer of Byzantium was born about 0980 and died on 11 January 1055 Monastery at Manganes, Byzantium.
