about this item

Drawing on the very sparse internal primary literature and on external sources, Madgearu reconstructs the political and military events for the period during which the dynasty founded by the two brothers Peter and Asan led the Second Bulgarian Empire, which was revived by the Vlach (Romanian) and Bulgarian rebellion against Byzantium. He begins by identifying the sources, reviewing the historiography, and describing Byzantium in the years before the uprising. Then he chronicles the beginning of the rebellion and the rise of the Vlach-Bulgarian state 1185-88, Peter and Asan 1189-97, Johannitsa 1197-1207, Boril 1207-18, John Asan II 1218-41, the decline of the Asanid state 1241-80, and fortifications.
