Title : Basilissai di origine occidentale nella produzione encomiastica Bizantina (sec. XII) [Byzantine scholars who described the Western-born empresses of the Komnenos period displayed ambivalence; Basil Archidenos described Bertha of Sulzbach (Irene Komnena) with a mixture of approval and disapproval; Eustathios of Thessalonike in his work honoring Agnes of France (Anna) , described her as an "ideal" empress, modest, reserved, submissive, and beautiful; he presented her qualities as an admission of Byzantine superiority].
