Book Description The Deeds of Frederick Barbarossa is the "official biography" of German king and holy roman emperor Frederick I. This historical firsthand account was begun by his maternal uncle, Otto, the leading medieval church figure and notable historian and continued by a less wellknown cleric, Rahewin. This chronicle is the single most important source for Frederick Barbarossa's reign and the most valuable biographical study of the twelfth century to date.
