    • Alexios II Komnenos or Alexius II Comnenus (Greek: ??????? ?? ????????, Alexios II Komn?nos) (10 September 1169 ? October 1183, Constantinople), Byzantine emperor (1180?1183), was the son of Emperor Manuel I Komnenos and Maria, daughter of Raymond, prince of Antioch.[1] He was the long-awaited male heir and was named Alexius as a fulfilment of the AIMA prophecy.

      On Manuel's death in 1180, Maria, who became a nun under the name Xene, took the position of regent (according to some historians). She excluded her young son from power, entrusting it instead to Alexios the pr?tosebastos (a cousin of Alexios II), who was popularly believed to be her lover. Friends of the young Alexios II now tried to form a party against the empress mother and the pr?tosebastos; Alexios II's half-sister Maria, wife of Caesar John (Renier of Montferrat), stirred up riots in the streets of the capital.

      Their party was defeated on 2 May 1182, but Andronikos Komnenos, a first cousin of Emperor Manuel, took advantage of the disorder to aim at the crown. He entered Constantinople, received with almost divine honours, and overthrew the government. His arrival was celebrated by a massacre of 80,000 Latins in Constantinople, especially the Venetian merchants, which he made no attempt to stop. He allowed Alexios II to be crowned but was responsible for the death of most of the young emperor's actual or potential defenders, including his mother, his half-sister, and the Caesar, and he refused to allow him any voice in public affairs.
