Is the CofG canonizing him or is the EP?

Good question why the CoG is involved at all.

Carl Kraeff (Second Chance):
Are we talking about "David Megas Komnenos (Greek: Δαβίδ Μέγας Κομνηνός, Dabid Megas Komnēnos) (c. 1408 – November 1, 1463) was the last Emperor of Trebizond from 1459 to 1461. He was the third son of Emperor Alexios IV of Trebizond and Theodora Kantakouzene"?

If so, what is the reason for his canonization?



also, he was basically a pretender to the throne

he also seemed to have asked the pope also for a crusade against the turks, although most emperors of that time did the same
