Theodora Komnene (fl. 1140) was a niece of Manuel I Komnenos, Byzantine emperor, a possible daughter of John Komnenos and of Maria Taronitissa, and the second wife of Bohemond III, prince of Antioch.

She was the mother of :

  • Constance (died young)
  • Philippe, married Baudouin Patriarch
  • Manuel (1176 † 1211)

Her uncle Manuel I Komnenos died in 1180. Bohemond believed that the alliance with Byzantium would not be beneficial and divorced Theodora to marry Sibylle de Burzey.

Theodora then married Walter of Béthune, son of the lord of Bethsan.
