Byzantine Empire, Andronicus II Palaeologus, 1272 - 24 May 1328 A.D., Reverse Brockage
Andronikos II sought to resolve some problems with diplomacy. After the death of his first wife Anne of Hungary, he married Yolanda of Montferrat (renamed Irene), putting an end to the Montferrat claim to the Kingdom of Thessalonica. Andronikos II attempted to eliminate Western agitation for a restoration of the Latin Empire by marrying his son and co-emperor Michael IX to the Latin Catherine I of Courtenay. To resolve a potential conflict with Serbia, Andronikos II married his five-year old daughter Simonis to King Stefan Milutin. When Theodore Svetoslav of Bulgaria defeated Michael IX and conquered much of northeastern Thrace, the conflict was ended with yet another marriage, between Michael IX's daughter Theodora and the Bulgarian emperor.
