Mother: Irene Doukaina, b. ca. 1066 in Constantinople, Turkey, d. 19 February 1138
William of Tyre described John: "short and unusually ugly, with eyes, hair and complexion so dark he was known as ‘the Moor’". He was known as "the Beautiful" for his personality and character.

The crown was at first intended to pass to Anna's fiance, Constantine, but he died shortly after John's birth. When John was made heir, Anna resented that she would not inherit the throne. Her mother often tried to persuade Alexios to choose Nikephoros, Anna's husband, over John. Supposedly, when Alexios was bed-ridden near the end of his life, John slipped the emperor's ring off his father's finger during an embrace "as though in mourning".

Claims have been made that Anna was behind a plan on John's life at their father's funeral, and another plan that never materialized. Her husband did not continue his quest for the throne, forcing Anna to drop her claim as well.

Mother: Maria of Bulgaria, d. aft. 1081
Irene and Alexios' eldest daughter Anna described her in the Alexiad (a book about her father's reign which is unique in that it is written by a princess about her father): "She stood upright like some young sapling, erect and evergreen, all her limbs and the other parts of her body absolutely symmetrical and in harmony one with another. With her lovely appearance and charming voice she never ceased to fascinate all who saw and heard her. Her face shone with the soft light of the moon; it was not the completely round face of an Assyrian woman, nor long, like the face of a Scyth, but just slightly oval in shape. There were rose blossoms on her cheeks, visible a long way off. Her light-blue eyes were both gay and stern: their charm and beauty attracted, but the fear they caused so dazzled the bystander that he could neither look nor turn away... Generally she accompanied her words with graceful gestures, her hands bare to the wrists, and you would say it was ivory turned by some craftsman into the form of fingers and hand. The pupils of her eyes, with the brilliant blue of deep waves, recalled a calm, still sea, while the white surrounding them shone by contrast, so that the whole eye acquired a peculiar lustre and a charm which was inexpressible." And also that it "would not have been so very inappropriate [to say that Irene was] Athena made manifest to the human race, or that she had descended suddenly from the sky in some heavenly glory and unapproachable splendour".
Married 1078.
