Historical Notes: After the capture of Constantinople in 1204 by the Venetian State backed by Frankish Crusaders the two created the Latin Empire, the "Byzantine Empire" in an effect collapsed and three Kingdoms (Successor States) were created Nicaea, Epirus and Trebizond. The Trebizond Empire was founded by it's first Emperor Alexius I Komnenos 1204-1222, a day before the Crusaders captured Constantinople.

The Trebizond had difficult times during the next two and half centuries, between 1204 - 1461 AD with its small army the Trebizond dependent on hiring Mercenaries and forming Alliances/Royal marriages for exchange of military Aid in order to survive the wars/campaigns she was involved against continuous invaders, finally the Trapezuntine Byzantines were overwhelmed and wiped out by the Ottomans in 1461.
