Komnena was born to King Stephen II and his wife Eudokia Angelina, and was thus a granddaughter of Emperor Alexios III Angelos.[1] She had three brothers: Stephen Radoslav (r. 1228–1233), Stephen Vladislav I (r. 1233–1243) and Predislav (the third Serbian Archbishop as Saint Sava II, after uncle Sava).

She married Dimitri in 1208, and a brief alliance was formed between Serbia and Arbanon amidst conflicts with the Republic of Venice. After Dimitrii died in 1215, the power was left to Komnena,[2] who shortly afterward married Greco-Albanian lord Gregory Kamonas. He assumed control over Kruja,[3] strengthening relations with Serbia, which had been weakened after a Serbian assault on Shkodër.

She had a daughter with Gregorios who married Golem of Kruja.[4]
