Aristocratic family from the Pontos. The activity of the family of Doranites had been closely connected to the internal strife in the Empire of Trebizond, which broke out during the reign of Irene Palaiologina (1340-1341) and continued to torment and divide the Empire until the first years of the reign of Alexios III Grand Komnenos (1349-1390). Their relations with the imperial throne were restored during the third quarter of the 14th century.
