  • Note:

    KATA of Georgia .  The Georgian Chronicle (18th century) records that King Davit sent "sa fille Cata en Grèce pour épouser le fils de l'empereur" in 1116[394].  The Georgian Chronicle (13th century) records that King Davit "made marriage alliances with the kings of Greece and Shuan giving his daughters to them"[395].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[396], Alexios Komnenos, son of co-Emperor Ioannes II, married Kata as his second wife, adding that she was also called Eirene, presumably her Orthodox baptismal names.  Sturdza agrees[397].  If Kata's marriage is correctly dated to 1116, "the emperor" then reigning was Alexios I (although his son Ioannes had already been crowned as co-emperor) and so presumably one of Alexios's sons would have been the bridegroom (the wife of Emperor Alexios's son Isaakios is not identified in primary sources).  There is nothing in the text of either versions of the Georgian Chronicle which suggests that Kata married Alexios.  Until more precise information emerges from other primary sources, it is considered more prudent to leave the identity of Kata's husband as uncertain.    m ([1116]) [co-Emperor ALEXIOS, son of Emperor IOANNES II & his wife Piroska [Eirene] of Hungary (Balabista in Macedonia Feb 1106-Attalia late summer 1142)].
