Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a short description of the work Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris, 'Chronicle of the Emperor Alfonso' on Christian-Muslim relations. The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris is a panegyric in prose and verse devoted to the deeds of Alfonso VII of Leon-Castile from his accession to the throne down to the eve of the conquest of the Muslim city of Almeria in 1147. The authorship of the Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris is also unknown. The most striking aspect of the Chronica is the author's focus on the numerous campaigns that were waged by Alfonso VII and his nobles against the Muslim Almoravids and their allies. The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris furnishes the principal account of the political and military affairs of the Leonese monarchy during the period 1126-47.
