About the Author

George Sphrantzes was the childhood friend, first lord, and intended chancellor of Constantinople's last emperor, Constantine XI. He undertook important diplomatic missions, worked intimately with the last three Byzantine emperors, and wielded considerable power in the Peloponnese and the capital city. Consequently, his account is of the utmost importance to Byzantine history.

Translator Marios Philipppides received a Ph. D. in Classical Philology from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He was Assistant Professor of Classics at the Unversity of Massachusetts, Amherst.
