Product Description

In the valley of Sparta, William II of Villehardouin built a castle on a hill.

Eventually known as Mistra, when William was defeated and captured by the Byzantine Emperor, the terms for his release included giving over Mistra. Under Byzantine rule, the city flourished, and become a center of learning, the arts, and cultural development. This is a fascinating study of a place steeped in history, myth, and romance, and the people who rules over and within it. Black and white plates are included in the center. 144 indexed pages, softcover.
