Byzantine emperor, 1081 - 1118. "Son of John Komnenos and Anna Dalassene, Alexios began his career as general under Michael VII and Nikephoros III. Together with his brother Isaac, Alexios revolted against Nikephoros (14 Feb. 1081). Constantinople fell on 1 Apr. and was sacked. Alexios came to the throne with the support of the military aristocracy, esp. the Doukai, to whom he was linked by marriage to Irene Doukaina. He found a difficult situation: the government had to cope with the revolts of aristocrats, the Seljuks occupied most of Asia Minor, the Pechenegs threatened the Danubian provinces, and Robert Guiscard was preparing to attack Constantinople. Alexios acted effectively: in 1081–93 he overcame the Normans, defeated the Pechenegs at Mt. Lebounion, and repelled Tzachas from Constantinople..." -Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium
