“The mounted knight is irresistible; he would bore his way through the walls of Babylon.”
Anna Comnena (1083 to 1153)
Anna Comnena, also spelled Komnene, was a Byzantine historian and daughter of the emperor Alexius I Comnenus.
She is remembered for her Alexiad, a history of the life and reign of her father, which became a valuable source as a pro-Byzantine account of the early Crusades.
