Frederick the Second

Wonder of the World 1194–1250

Ernst Kantorowicz, Intro. Dan Jones

The bane of successive popes, Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II of Hohenstaufen was both an enlightened polymath and a charismatic but tyrannical ruler. Despite being repeatedly excommunicated, he conducted crusades, brokered peace in the Middle East and crowned himself King of Jerusalem. Kantorowicz’s ‘mercurial, bravura’ biography, originally published in 1927, combines scholarship with myth and melodrama in an early example of popular narrative history. This volume reprints EO Lorimer’s authorized 1931 translation.
