She was the second wife of King Leo I of Armenia, married in 1210, by whom she had one daughter, Isabella of Armenia. She claimed the throne of Armenia for herself after the death of her husband, who had left the throne to their infant daughter, but was exiled by the regent Constantine of Baberon.[1]
