The 'Templar of Tyre' PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The 'Templar of Tyre' free pdf The so-called "Templar of Tyre" is the third and longest section of an important 14th-century chronicle known as the "Gestes des Chiprois". Written by a Cypriot knight who served the Templar Master William of Beaujeu, the Templar provides precious contemporary insights, often drawn from the author's personal experience, into events beginning in the early 1230s and ending in 1309 in the East and 1314 in the West. It covers the last days of the mainland Crusader states and provides our only eyewitness chronicle of the fall of Acre in 1291. The author also reports various events in the West, including the wars of the Hohenstaufen in Italy, the rise and fall of Simon de Montfort in England, the trial and dissolution of the Templars in France, and the interminable wars of Genoa and Venice across the Mediterranean. This is a translation of the complete text.
