Chapter Summary

Previous scholars have identified Cronaca as a compilation comprising of four parts. These four parts were certainly not all written by the same individual, nor at the same time. To reflect their distinct origins, this chapter dispenses the nomenclature of "parts" except where referring to earlier scholarship, and utilize autonomous titles for each that reflect their contents. As the evidence attests, two versions of the Cronaca circulated by the end of the fourteenth century: the original, which comprised seventy five chapters, and a redacted version done, which runs to ninety-six chapters. Cronaca's author is Bartolomeo Caracciolo-Carafa. The "king Louis" to whom he dedicated the work is Louis of Taranto, whose reign allows us narrow down the date of the Cronaca's completion. This chapter discusses about the original text, author and date of Cronaca di Partenope.
