Women of History: Maria Comnena

Share

Considered the Queen of Jerusalem…

Maria was the grandniece of the Byzantine Emperor Manuel I Comnenus of Constantinople (d.1180).   Maria only gave birth to daughters – one died young (prob bc.1171), and Isabella aged 2 on father’s death (1173). Maria was the stepmother of King Baldwin IV (her husband’s son by his first marriage of Agnes of Courtenay).
