French Text

Arnaud des Roches de Chassay chronicles the period beginning in 1030 with Tancrede d'Hauteville, arriving from Normandy. It is one of his descendants who will be king of Sicily and sultan of Palermo! The French presence will end with the Battle of Pavia and yet even after that, the dream of Italy will languish until Murat… de Chassay describes in excellent detail this period which is dotted with military, political and religious twists. Preface by Gonzague Saint-Bris.
