- Co-Emperor, Lord of Thracia
return for the support he gave to his father during his struggle with John V Palaiologos , he was given part of Thrace as an appanage , and was proclaimed joint emperor in 1353. From his Thracian domain, he led several wars against the Serbians . An attack, which he prepared in 1350, was frustrated by the defection of his Turkish auxiliaries. In 1357, he was captured by his enemies, who delivered him to the rival emperor John V Palaiologos. Compelled to abdicate, he moved to the Morea , in 1361, and assisted his brother Manuel Kantakouzenos in its government. After his brother's death in 1380, Matthew Asanes Kantakouzenos governed the Morea until the appointment of the new governor Theodore I Palaiologos , in 1381, and his arrival in 1382. Before full transition of power in the Morea, from the Kantakouzenos family to that of Palaiologos , Matthew resigned his power in the Morea to his son Demetrios I Kantakouzenos .
