  • Disappointed by a negative reply from Manuel 1 over Antioch, he persisted in requests for a bride; he married one of the daughters of Ioannes 17006, with the same oaths that his brother Baldwin 53 had given (:) Kinnamos 238.2-6
Emperor Manuel I Komnenos (Manuel 1)
  • When the new king of Palestine (Amalric 51) sent asking for an imperial bride and testing Byzantine resolve over Antioch, he replied positively about a bride, but was completely unyielding over the Antiochenes, promising to punish them (:) Kinnamos 237.18-238.1
