'The shining light of the world, the great Alexios' Anna Komnene (1083 - 1153) wrote The Alexiad as an account of the reign of her father, the Byzantine Emperor Alexios I. Anna's character sketches are shrewd and forthright - from the Norman invader Robert Guiscard ('nourished by manifold evil') and his son Bohemond ('like a streaking thunderbolt') to Pope Gregory VII ('unworthy of a high priest').
