Constantine Angelos

Constantine Angelos (Greek: Κωνσταντίνος Άγγελος; fl. 1122–66) was a Byzantine admiral and panhypersebastos, of Philadelphia,[1] the commander of the Imperial Fleet in Sicily, who married Theodora Komnene (born 1097) in 1122,[2] the youngest daughter of Emperor Alexios I Komnenos and Irene Doukaina. According to the near-contemporary Niketas Choniates, Constantine was brave, skilled and handsome, but of lowly origin. He was the son of one Manolis Angelos from Philadelphia and had three brothers: Nikolaos Angelos, Michael Angelos and Ioannes Angelos, a military leader in Italy.

Through his son Andronikos Doukas Angelos, he was the progenitor of the Angelos dynasty. Although they were members of the Angelos family, they often bore other surnames.
