Note for: Anna Byzantine - Dalassena, (1025) - Index
Individual note: important Byzantine noblewoman who rose to position of sort of Empress-Mother during the reign of her son Emperor Alexius I.
She married Johannes Komnenos, a nephew of Emperor Isaac I Comnenus (Emperor from 1057 to 1059).
Her younger son Alexius rose to the throne after vicissitudes of politics. Alexius was for many years under the strong influence of her eminence grise. She is described as a wise and immensely able politician.
She was in a uniquely irregular fashion, crowned as Empress Augusta by her son the emperor, instead of the rightful claimant to the title, Alexius' wife Irene.
Anna Dalassena was the effective administrator of the Empire during Alexius' long absences in war campaigns: she was constantly at odds with her daughter-in-law Irene Ducaena and had assumed total responsibility for the upbringing and education of her granddaughter Anna Comnena.

Note for: Oleg I Rus' Chergnigov 7E Svyatoslavich, (1055) - Index
Individual note: In the 1070s, he ruled the towns of Rostov and Lutsk, whence he made a raid into Bohemia in 1076. The same year his father died in Kiev and was succeeded by his brother Vsevolod. Failing to get along with him, Oleg had to flee to a distant Chernigovian domain on the Black Sea shore, called Tmutarakan. There he made an alliance with the Kipchaks, and with their support returned his father's patrimony, Chernigov, modern Chernihiv, (1078). It was the first time when Slavic princes, in order to achieve their ends, brought pagan hordes to the walls of Russian cities.
On October 3, 1078 Oleg's forces clashed with Vsevolod of Kiev at the Nezhatinnaya Niva (or Nezhatina Niva, today's Nizhyn). He was defeated and escaped to Tmutarakan, where the Khazars had him imprisoned and sent in chains to Constantinople. The emperor, who was a relative and ally of Vsevolod, exiled him to Rhodes. There he married a noble lady, Theophano Mouzalonissa, who bore him several children.
Four years later, we again find him active in Tmutarakan, where he adopted the title "archon of Khazaria". In 1094, he returned with the Kipchaks to Rus and captured Chernigov. There ensued a prolonged internecine struggle with his cousins Sviatopolk and Vladimir Monomakh. One of the most prominent princes of Kievan period who never attained the Kievan throne, he died on August 1, 1115 and was buried in Chernigov.
