Byzantine Empire, John V Palaeologus and Anna of Savoy (Mother, Regent), 15 June 1341 - 13 May 1347
|John| |V|, |Byzantine| |Empire,| |John| |V| |Palaeologus| |and| |Anna| |of| |Savoy| |(Mother,| |Regent),| |15| |June| |1341| |-| |13| |May| |1347|, On 15 June 1341, Andronikos III died. He was succeeded by his son John V who was three days short of his ninth birthday. Anna of Savoy was appointed regent for her son. Andronikos III had entrusted the administration to his advisor John Kantakouzenos. While Kantakouzenos was fighting the Serbs in Northern Thrace, ambitious advisors in Constantinople convinced Anna to declare him an enemy of the state. On 26 October 1341, rather than face execution, Kantakouzenos proclaimed himself emperor. Civil war ended with Anna's defeat in 1347. On 3 February 1347, John VI was accepted as senior emperor with John V as his junior co-ruler. John V married Helena Kantakouzene, a daughter of John VI. John VI entered Constantinople and took effective control of the city. In 1351, Anna left Constantinople for Thessaloniki. She held her own court in the city, issuing decrees in her name and even controlling a mint. Around 1365, when her health was failing, she became a nun, and died under the name Anastasia.
