The Man Who Believed He Was King of France: A True Medieval Tale
Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri | University Of Chicago Press | 2011-09-18 | 224 pages | English | PDF
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â With the skill of a crime scene detective, Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri digs up evidence in the historical record to follow the story of a life so incredible that it was long considered a literary invention of the Italian Renaissance. From Italy to Hungry, then through Germany and France, the would-be kingâ€™s unique combination of guile and earnestness seems to command the aid of lords and soldiers, the indulgence of inn-keepers and merchants, and the collusion of priests and rogues along the way. The apparent absurdity of the tale allows Carpegna Falconieri to analyze late-medieval society, exploring questions of essence and appearance, being and belief, at a time when the divine right of kings confronted the rise of mercantile culture. Gianninoâ€™s life represents a moment in which truth, lies, history, and memory combine to make us wonder where reality leaves off and fiction begins.
