  • Notes 
    • A multi-thread discussion of her possible origins was begun and led by Peter Stewart on SGM, beginning with this post.

      She may or may not have borne the name Komnena, but she was definitely a member of the family of Manuel I Komnenos (1118-1180), emperor of Byzantium, who sent her to marry Raymond Berenger III of Provence. In circumstances best described as hazy, Berenger turned her down, and she wound up marrying Guillem VIII, seigneur of Montpellier, instead.

      She was the mother of Guillem's only legitimate child, Marie, who wound up being the mother of James I (1208-1276), King of Aragon.
