d. Note:   Isaac II Angelus From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Isaac II Angelus (or Isaakios Angelos) (September 1156 - February, 1204), was the Byzantine emperor from 1185-1195, and again 1203-1204. He was a grandson of Theodora Comnena Porphyrogenita, youngest daughter of Emperor Alexius I, and thus a member of the extended imperial clan. In 1185, during Emperor Andronicus I Comnenus's absence from the capital, the latter's lieutenant ordered the arrest and execution of Isaac. Isaac escaped and took refuge in the church of Hagia Sophia. Andronicus, a capable ruler, was also hated for his efforts to keep the aristocracy obedient. The sanctuary-bound Isaac appealed to the populace, and a tumult arose which spread rapidly over the whole city. When Andronicus arrived he found that his power was overthrown, and that Isaac had been proclaimed emperor. Isaac delivered him over to his enemies, and he was killed on September 12, 1185. In order to strengthen his position as emperor, he sought a new wife, and in 1185 married Margaret of Hungary, daughter of king Bela III. Hungary was one of the empire's largest and most powerful neighbours, and Margaret also had the benefit of high aristocratic descent, being related to the royal families of Kiev, the Holy Roman Empire, Italy, Provence, and the previous Byzantine emperors (unlike Isaac himself, who was descended from the Comneni, a family of the lower nobility). Isaac inaugurated his reign with a decisive victory over the Normans in Sicily, but elsewhere his policy was less successful. He failed in an attempt to recover Cyprus from the rebellious noble Isaac Comnenos, thanks to Norman interference. The oppressiveness of his taxes drove the Bulgarians and Vlachs to revolt (1186). In 1187, Alexius Branas, the general sent against the rebels, treacherously turned his arms against his master, and attempted to seize Constantinople, but was defeated and slain by Isaac's brother-in-law Conrad of Montferrat. The emperor's attention was next demanded in the east, where several claimants to the throne successively rose and fell. In 1189 Frederick I, Holy Roman Emperor sought and obtained leave to lead his troops on the Third Crusade through the Byzantine Empire; but he had no sooner crossed the border than Isaac, who had meanwhile sought an alliance with Saladin, threw every impediment in his way, and was only compelled by force of arms to fulfil his engagements. The next five years were disturbed by fresh rebellions of the Vlachs, against whom Isaac led several expeditions in person. During one of these, in 1195, Alexius Angelos, the emperor's elder brother, taking advantage of the latter's absence from camp on a hunting expedition, proclaimed himself emperor, and was readily recognised by the soldiers. Isaac was blinded and imprisoned in Constantinople. After eight years, he was raised from his dungeon to his throne once more after the arrival of the Fourth Crusade. But both mind and body had been enfeebled by captivity, and his son Alexius IV was the actual monarch. Isaac died in 1204, shortly after the usurpation of his general, Mourzouphles. Isaac has the reputation of one of the weakest and most vicious princes that occupied the Byzantine throne. Surrounded by a crowd of slaves, mistresses and flatterers, he permitted his empire to be administered by unworthy favourites, while he squandered the money wrung from his provinces on costly buildings and expensive gifts to the churches of his metropolis. [edit] Family The identity of Isaac's first wife is unknown, but her name, Herina, is found on the necrology of Speyer Cathedral, where their daughter Irene is interred. His wife Herina may have been a member of the Palaeologus family; she was dead or divorced by 1185, when Isaac remarried. Their children were: Euphrosyne Angelina, a nun. Irene Angelina, married first to Roger III of Sicily, and secondly to Philip of Swabia Alexius IV Angelus By his second wife, Margaret of Hungary, Isaac had two sons: Ioannes Angelus Manuel Angelus [edit] Sources Hiestand, Rudolf.

During the brief reign of Andronikos I Komnenos, Isaac was involved (a longside his father and brothers) in the revolt of Nicaea and Prousa.A typically, the Emperor did not punish him for this disloyalty, and Isa ac remained at Constantinople. On September 11, 1185, during Andronik os' absence from the capital, the latter's lieutenant Stephanos Hagioc hristophorites moved to arrest Isaac. Isaac killed Hagiochristophorite s and took refuge in the church of Hagia Sophia. Andronikos, in somewa ys a capable ruler, was hated for his efforts to keep the aristocracy obedient and his cruelty. Isaac appealed to the populace, and a tumul t arose which spread rapidly over the whole city. When Andronikos arri ved he found that his authority was overthrown, and that Isaac had bee n proclaimed emperor. Andronikos attempted to flee by boat but was app rehended. Isaac handed him over to the people of the City, and he was killed on September 12, 1185. Isaac II Angelos strengthened his position as emperor with dynastic ma rriages in 1185 and 1186. His niece, Eudokia Angelina, was married toS tefan, son of Stefan Nemanja of Serbia. Isaac's sister, Theodora, was married to the Italian marquis Conrad of Montferrat. In January 1186 I saac himself married Margaret of Hungary (who was renamed Maria), daug hter of king Béla III. Hungary was one of the empire's largest andmos t powerful neighbours, and Margaret also had the benefit of high arist ocratic descent, being related to the royal families of Kiev, the Hol y Roman Empire, Italy, Provence, and earlier Byzantine dynasties. Isaa c inaugurated his reign with a decisive victory over the Norman King o f Sicily William II (on the banks of the Strymon, 7 September 1185), w ho had invaded the Balkans towards the end of Andronicus I's reign. El sewhere his policy was less successful. He failed in an attempt to rec over Cyprus from the rebellious noble Isaac Comnenus, thanks to Norma n interference. The oppressiveness of his taxes, increased to pay his armies and finan ce his marriage, resulted in the Vlach-Bulgarian Rebellion late in 118 5. The rebellion led to the establishment of the Second Bulgarian Empi re under the Asen dynasty. In 1187, Alexios Branas, the victor over th e Normans, was sent against the rebels but turned his arms against hi s master, and attempted to seize Constantinople, only to be defeated a nd slain by Isaac's brother-in-law Conrad of Montferrat. The emperor's attention was next demanded in the east, where several c laimants to the throne successively rose and fell. In 1189 the Holy Ro man Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa sought and obtained permission to l ead his troops on the Third Crusade through the Byzantine Empire; buth e had no sooner crossed the border than Isaac, who had meanwhile sough t an alliance with Saladin, threw every impediment in his way, and wa s only compelled by force of arms to fulfil his engagements in 1190.Th e next five years were disturbed by continued warfare with Bulgaria, a gainst which Isaac led several expeditions in person. In spite ofa pro mising start, these ventures had little effect, and on one occasion i n 1190 Isaac barely escaped with his life. While preparing for yet ano ther offensive against Bulgaria in 1195, Alexios Angelos, the emperor' s older brother, taking advantage of the latter's absence from camp o n a hunting expedition, proclaimed himself emperor, and was readily re cognised by the soldiers as Emperor Alexios III. Isaac was blinded an d imprisoned in Constantinople. After eight years of captivity, he was raised from his dungeon to hist hrone once more after the arrival of the Fourth Crusade and the fligh t of Alexios III from the capital. But both mind and body had been enf eebled by confinement, and his son Alexios IV Angelos was associated o n the throne as the effective monarch. Heavily beholden to the crusad ers, Alexios IV was unable to meet his obligations and his vacillatio n caused him to lose the support of both his crusader allies and his s ubjects. At the end of January, 1204, the influential court official A lexios Doukas Mourtzouphlos took advantage of riots in the capital toi mprison Alexios IV and seize the throne as Emperor Alexios V. At this point Isaac II died, allegedly of shock, while Alexios IV was strangle d on January 28 or 29. Isaac has the reputation of one of the most unsuccessful princes thato ccupied the Byzantine throne. Surrounded by a crowd of slaves, mistres ses and flatterers, he permitted his empire to be administered by unwo rthy favourites, while he squandered the money wrung from his province s on costly buildings and expensive gifts to the churches of his metro polis. The identity of Isaac II's first wife is unknown, but her name, Herin a (i.e., Eirene), is found on the necrology of Speyer Cathedral, wher e their daughter Irene is interred. (It must be noted, however, that i t would have been extremely unusual for a mother and daughter to beart he same name, unless the mother's name was monastic.) Isaac's wife ma y have been a member of the Palaiologos family. Their third child wasb orn in 1182 or 1183 and she was dead or divorced by 1185, when Isaacre married. Their children were: 1.) Euphrosyne Angelina, a nun; 2.) Eirn e Angelina, married first to Roger III of Sicily, and secondly to Phil ip of Swabia; and 3.) Alexios IV Angelos. Isaac married second, Margaret of Hungary (renamed Maria), Isaac II ha d two sons: 1.) John Angelos, born no earlier than January 1193. He mi grated to Hungary and to have been governor of Sirmium and Belgrade ar ound 1254; and 2.) Manuel Angelos, born after 1195
