King Béla III was married four times but only had children with his second wife Agnes " Anna " de Chatillon-sur-Loing[1]

In 1162, he was first betrothed to Maria of Byzantium whom he divorced ( contract was broken) in 1169 as it was never consummated and there were no issues.[2].She was dau.of Emperor Manuel I Komnenos of Byzantium. Bela moved to Byzantium to be an heir to Manuel, but after Manuel had a son in 1169 the relationship, presumably never consummated, was dissolved. He also married 3rdly around 1185, Theodora Komnena . His fourth marriage was in 1186 to Marguerite of France who was the widow of King Henry, the young, of England and the daughter of King Louis VII of France.
