Product Description

Robert Guiscard was the seventh son of Tancred of Hauteville. Robert was an aggressive warrior determined to make his status and fortune in the world. He conquered most of Italy and waged war against the Byzantine Empire. Byzantine historian and daughter of Byzantine Emperor Alexius I wrote the following profile of Guiscard:
‘The Robert was Norman by birth, of obscure origins, with an overbearing character and a thoroughly villainous mind: he was a brave fighter, very cunning in his assaults on the wealth and power of great men; in achieving his aims absolutely, diverting criticism by inconvertible argument. He was a man of immense stature, surpassing even the biggest men; he had ruddy complexion, fair hair, broad shoulders, eyes that all but shot out sparks of fire. In a well-built man one looks for breadth here and slimness there, in him all was admirably well-proportioned and elegant.’
Guiscard went on to become Duke of Apulia and Calabria and Duke of Sicily and Prince of Benevento.
