|Title:||Maria Porphyrogenita, daughter of Manuel I Comnenus||Contributor(s):||Garland, Lynda (author); Stone, Andrew (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1165||Abstract:||Maria Porphyrogenita (also known as Maria Caesarissa, or 'Maria the Caesar's wife') was the only surviving child of Manuel I Comnenus and his first wife Bertha-Irene of Sulzbach. The wedding of her parents had taken place in January 1146, and she was probably born in March 1152. According to Cinnamus, she was hailed as 'empress', i.e. given the title Augusta, at her birth. For the greater part of her life, Maria was only a pawn in the manoeuvring of dynastic politics, until she became involved in an insurrection against her step-mother's regime during the brief reign of her brother Alexius II.||Publication Type:||Entry In Reference Work||Source of Publication:||De Imperatoribus Romanis ("On The Rulers of Rome") - An Online Encyclopedia of Roman Rulers and their Families||Publisher:||Academic Computer Services of Salve Regina University||Field of Research (FOR):||210306 Classical Greek and Roman History||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.roman-emperors.org/maryp.htm||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 128
