Michael Kaballarios

Michael Kaballarios (Greek: Μιχαήλ Καβαλλάριος) was a Byzantine aristocrat and military leader. In ca. 1277 he was megas konostaulos (commander of the Latin mercenaries). Along with the megas stratopedarches John Synadenos, he led a Byzantine army against John I Doukas of Thessaly, but was defeated in the Battle of Pharsalus and died shortly afterwards of his wounds.
