Isaac is a descendant women Alexis I Comnenus. After the assassination of Andronicus I Comnenus after taking Thessaloniki in 1185, Isaac II inherited a decaying Empire. Caught between the Bulgarian power and expansionist Crusader, he was finally deposed and blinded by his brother Alexius III Comnenus Ange.
