Summary One of the few autobiographies to have survived from the Middle Ages, this life history of one of the most influential rulers of the fourteenth century, Charles IV of Bohemia, covers his life from birth until his election as King of Germany in 1346. He describes his childhood, spent mainly in the court of French kings, his juvenile years, his marriage and his first steps into the international political scene.
This is the first edition to contain both the Latin sources and a complete English-language translation. A unique addition is the first ever English translation of the Legend of Saint Wenceslas, written by Charles IV.
