Mead Emily, Power, patronage and underage rule in Norman Sicily

Mead Emily, Power, patronage and underage rule in Norman Sicily, (dir. A. Metcalfe, Lancaster University)

En cours depuis 2010/In preparation since 2010

Résumé/abstract :

This thesis centres on the regency of Countess Adelaide in post conquest Sicily and Calabria (1101-1113). It asks how regency governance was perceived, presented and worked in practise. Fundamentally, it answers the question of just how much this period should simply be painted as one of continuity from the rule of Roger I. In doing so, it exploits Greek and Latin charter material, as well as Latin narratives. Such independent study of Adelaide is essential, prior to further comparative work, owing to the infant political and social climate of Sicily and Calabria in these years.
