Glabas, Michael Tarchaneiotes

   Byzantium's (q.v.) most able general (died ca. 1305) during the reign of Andronikos II Palaiologos (q.v.). He campaigned successfully against the forces of Bulgaria, Serbia, and the Angevins (qq.v.), in an effort to preserve what was left of the western possessions of the empire. His campaign in northern Epiros (q.v.) briefly recovered Ioannina and Dyrrachion (qq.v.), before he returned to Constantinople (q.v.) in 1293, events reported in the Chronicle of Morea, and later by the poet Manuel Philes. In 1298, he had the wisdom to recommend to Andronikos that peace be made with Stefan Urosh II Milutin (q.v.), rather than face a protracted war with Serbia. He is buried in the south parekklesion (q.v.) of the Church of Hagia Maria Pammakaristos in Constantinople.
