Riassunto: The "History of the Tyrants of Sicily" by the so-called Hugo Falcandus is a key source for the history of the medieval kingdom of Sicily. It describes the events of the reign of King William I "The Bad" (1154-66) and the minority of his son, William II (1166-89) up to the spring of 1169. These were years of crisis and the "History" presents a vivid and compelling (though savagely biased) picture of royal tyranny, rebellion and factional dispute at court. This text provides an English translation of the "History" along with a selection of other contemporary evidence for this period. The introduction gives an interpretation of the 12th-century kingdom of Sicily which places the text in its historical and literary context, and examines the problem of its authorship.

L'autore: G.A. Loud is Senior Lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Leeds.

T.E.J. Wiedemann is Professor of Latin at the University of Nottingham.
