Jean d’ Outremeuse’s Ly Myreur des Histors

A world chronicle from Priam until 1340, the Myreur des histors, incorporates both materials from Latin chronicles and vernacular chansons de geste. Although Jean took a decided interest in the history of his native Liège, the history is universal. Volumes 4 and 5 of the only complete edition recount events in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem and on Lusignan Cyprus.
