Alexios Strategopoulos was born in the late 12th - early 13th century. He was an official of the Empire of Nicaea and later served under Michael VIII Palaiologos. He was honoured with the titles of megas domestikos and caesar. He fought in the wars of the emperors of Nicaea against the despotate of Epiros, but he is mainly associated with the recapture of Constantinople (July 1261). He died between 1271 and 1275, probably in Constantinople.
