Constantine Monomachos was married three times; to a wife of unknown identity and to Helena Skleraina, daughter of Basil Skleros, great-granddaughter of Bardas Skleros, and niece of Emperor Romanus III, and to the Empress Zoe.

After the death of his second wife, Constantine also took her first cousin Maria Skleraina as his mistress.

He had no children with his first wife or with the ageing Zoe. With either Helena or Maria Sklerina he had a daughter named Anastasia, who married Vsevolod I of Kiev in 1046. Constantine's family name Monomachos ("one who fights alone") was inherited by his Kievan grandson, Vladimir II Monomakh.[1] He also took Guarandukht, the daughter of King George I of Georgia, as a mistress.
