Theodore Mangaphas was born around the mid-12th century. He was a dignitary in the Byzantine court. During the reign of Isaac II Angelos (1185-1195, 1203-1204) he took on the command of Philadelphia, where he twice attempted to establish an independent state (1188-1189 and 1204-1205). In 1205, after his defeat by the Latins, his lands came under the control of the Empire of Nicaea.
