The daughter of the Byzantine Emperor Alexius I, Anna Comnena (1083-1153) wrote this work as an account of her father's reign. Although biased in favour of Alexius, the book yields important insights into his rule and provides a picture of the first crusade from a different perspective.

Review: The Alexiad of Anna Comnena

Recensione dell'utente  - Brandin Stoy - Goodreads

Very engaging narrative of the life of the Byzantine emperor Alexios I Kommenos. Despite protestations to the contrary by Anna, the work is not free from the biases of the author, however, this does not lessen the value of the work. Leggi recensione completa
