- Self-proclaimed "emperor" of Cyprus (q.v.) from 1184-1191. With forged papers, this great-nephew of Manuel I Komnenos (q.v.) gained control of the island and declared it independent from the government in Constantinople (q.v.). Without a fleet, Andronikos I Komnenos (q.v.) was unable to put down the revolt. In 1187 Isaac II Angelos (q.v.) sent a fleet to recover the island, but Margaritone (q.v.), admiral of Isaac Komnenos's ally William II of Sicily (qq.v.), defeated it. Isaac ruled Cyprus tyrannically until 1191, when Richard I Lionheart captured the island.
