The Walls of Byzantium Book presentation by James Heneage. “The Walls of Byzantium” is the first of the Mistra Chronicles series in which James Heneage will tell the story of the last decades before the fall of the Byzantine Empire in the mid-fifteenth century. The story begins and ends in the little Despotate of Mistra in the Peloponnese, from where three
families from the two cities of Mistra and Monemvasia will emerge to commit their destinies to the salvation, or destruction, of their empire. Byzantium must pursue two parallel strategies to survive, one facing east and the other west. The books will tell the tales of a hero who will travel from Renaissance Italy to Ming China in his quest to save his empire. It is the story of a time when heroes and monsters (such as the Mongol Tamerlane) strode the earth and when truth was stranger than fiction. Free entry but please confirm attendance on 020 7563 9835 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
