  • From the Genoese colony of Kaffa in the Crimea , where he was in exile after an attempted coup, John, the son of Alexios IV , the Emperor and Grand Comn of Trebizond , returns to Trebizond with a galley manned by mercenaries. With the help of some Trapezuntian aristocrats who defected to him, he had his father murdered in his sleep, who went to meet him with loyal troops after landing. His brother Alexander, who has meanwhile been appointed heir to the throne, cannot oppose the Genoese and flees, so that at the end of October John is proclaimed John IV as the new Emperor of Trebizond. One of his first official acts is to punish his father's murderers, whom he gives a solemn burial.
