On Manuel's death in 1180, who became a nun under the name Xene, took the position of regent, she excluded her young son from power, entrusting it instead to Alexios the prōtosebastos, popularly believed to be her lover. Friends of the young Alexios II now tried to form a party against the Dowager Empress and the prōtosebastos, their party was defeated on 2 May 1182, but Andronikos Komnenos, a first cousin of Emperor Manuel, took advantage of the disorder to aim at the crown. He entered Constantinople, received with divine honours, overthrew the government, his arrival was celebrated by a massacre of 80,000 Latins in Constantinople the Venetian merchants, which he made no attempt to stop.

The betrothal in 1180 of Alexios II to Agnes of France, daughter of Louis VII of France and his third wife Adèle of Champagne and at the time a child of nine, had not been followed by their marriage. Andronikos was now formally proclaimed as co-emperor before the crowd on the terrace of the Church of Christ of the Chalkè, not long afterwards, on the pretext that divided rule was injurious to the Empire, he caused Alexios II to be strangled with a bow-string in October 1183. During the reign of Alexius II, the Byzantine Empire was invaded by King Béla III, losing Syrmia and Bosnia to the Kingdom of Hungary in 1181. Kilij Arslan II invaded the empire in 1182, defeating the Byzantines at the Siege of Cotyaeum, resulting in the Empire losing Cotyaeum and Sozopolis.
