Byzantine Empire

  • August 15 : After the death of Alexios I from the ruling dynasty of the Comnenes , his eldest son John II succeeds him to the throne of the Byzantine Empire . His older sister Anna Komnena , who would like to see her husband Nikephoros Bryennios on the throne, conspires with her mother Irene Dukaina against the new emperor that same year . The conspiracy fails, however, also because Nikephoros himself refuses an accession to the throne. Anna and Irene are banished to a monastery and their property confiscated. Johannes rewards his supporters with titular posts, his childhood friend Johannes Axuch becomes Commander-in-Chief of the Army.
