Nephew of Asen I (q.v.) who assassinated Asen I in 1196. He tried to hold Turnovo (q.v.) against Asen I's brother Peter (q.v.), but when promised Byzantine support failed to materialize, he fled Bulgaria for Constantinople (qq.v.). There he married into the imperial family of Alexios III (q.v.) and was given Philippopolis (q.v.) to administer. Deserting Alexios III in 1198, he briefly set up an independent principality in Rhodope and central Thrace (qq.v.) before being captured in 1200 by a ruse and executed.
