Short biography
Anna was a medieval princess, eldest daughter of the Emperor Alexius I Comnenus of Byzantium and Empress Irene Doukaina. She was extremely well educated by the standards of the time, and wrote the Alexiad, a multi-volume biography of her father and one of the most important primary sources on the Byzantine empire. In 1097, Anna married Nikephorus Bryennius the Younger, son of a former pretender to the imperial throne, and in 1118 joined in a conspiracy to make her husband emperor. When the plot failed, she and her mother retired to a monastery, where Anna wrote her books.
