  • Title: The Role of Kerbogha's Mother in the "Gesta Francorum" and Selected Chronicles of the First Crusade [The author argues for more scholarly attention on Kerbogha's mother, presented as an educated, loving mother who warns her warrior son of the Christians' sure victory. This character in the "Gesta Francorum" presents evidence of the author's intentions and provides an interesting study of views on women and motherhood. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
