Cedrenus names "Romanus Sclerus, Burtza, Botaneiates, Basilii Argyrii filii" among the supporters of Isaakios Komnenos, in 1057[706].

He rebelled against Emperor Mikhael VII, was acclaimed emperor 7 Jan 1078, gained the support of Suleiman Seljuk Sultan, and marched on Constantinople where a revolt broke out in his support against the unpopular government of the emperor. He entered Constantinople 24 Mar 1078, and was crowned Emperor NIKEFOROS III the same day by the Patriarch. He married the wife of his predecessor, who had retired to a monastery, to gain legitimacy. He was faced by the rebellion of Nikeforos Bryennios, governor of Durazzo, and of Basilacius in Thessaly. The Turkish garrison of Nikaia also rose in revolt. He was excommunicated by Pope Gregory, and Robert "Guiscard" Duke of Apulia landed at Avlona and marched towards Durazzo. This was followed by the revolt of Nikeforos Melissenos, whose alliance with Sultan Suleiman enabled the latter to capture Bythinia and establish himself as Sultan at Nikaia[711]. Finally, Alexios Komnenos rebelled and forced Nikeforos's abdication 4 Apr 1081. According to the Alexeiad, he had planned to name Nikeforos Synadenos, his nephew, as his successor[712]. He retired to become a monk.

The typikon of Theotokos Kecharitomenes provides for the future commemoration of "[le] fils de ma Majesté le porphyrogénète et sébastocrator kyr Andronic" on the date of his death[220]. Prodromos, in a poem addressed to the empress, lists (in chronological order) the deaths which had occurred in her family: “la protection des Romains, Alexis...un gendre très célèbre...Nicéphore...l’enfant d’Andronic...mais son épouse décéda auparavant...la prophyrogénète Eudocie” and adds that “tu as fait disparâitre deux fils en même temps, cruel Telkine, la vie d’Andronic et la vigueur d’Isaac. L’un erre aux extrémités de l’Anatolie, mort vivant...l’autre est parti dans l’occident ténébreux de l’Hadès”[221]. The latter part of the passage appears to refer to the death of Andronikos and the exile of Isaakios, both events dated to [1130/31]. This suggestion appears confirmed by the song composed by Mikhael Italicos after the death of Andronikos which records that “Irène Doukaina et le césar Nicéphore Bryennios” accompanied his body from the Asian bank back to Constantinople[222].
     "m [firstly] (betrothed 20 Aug 1104) [IRINA Volodarovna of Tmutorokan, daughter of VOLODAR Rostislavich Prince of Peremysl & his wife [Anna] of Pomerania] (-[before 1120]). The Primary Chronicle records that the daughter of Volodar was taken to Tsargrad 20 Jul 1104 to become the wife of the son of Emperor Alexios[223]. The typikon of Theotokos Kecharitomenes (dated to [1110]) provides for the future commemoration of "la...bru de ma Majesté, la sébastocratorissa kyra Irène" on the date of her death[224]. Prodromos, in a poem addressed to the empress, lists (in chronological order) the deaths which had occurred in her family: “la protection des Romains, Alexis...un gendre très célèbre...Nicéphore...l’enfant d’Andronic...mais son épouse décéda auparavant...”[225]. If this poem is factually correct, Irina probably died before [1120], the estimated date of death of her son.
     "[m secondly ANNA, daughter of ---. A poem records "un sébastocrator et porphrogénète Andronic et son épouse la sébastocratorissa Anne" which Kouroupou and Vannier suggest may refer to Andronikos Komnenos and a second wife[226].]
     "Andronikos Komnenos & his [first] wife had one child.
     "Andronikos Komnenos & his [first/second] wife had three children."

     "THEODORA Komnene ([1050/57]-after [1094/95]). Nikeforos Bryennios names (in order) "Maria, Eudocia et Theodora" as the three daughters of "Ioanni" and his wife Anna[120]. Her date of birth can be estimated only approximately. 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.
