Every inch a king : comparative studies on kings and kingship in the ancient and medieval worlds

edited by Lynette Mitchell, Charles Melville

Drawing on studies of kings from Cyrus to Shah Abbas, this volume provides a rich variety of readings on royal authority and its limitations in medieval societies in both Europe and the Middle East, exemplified especially in the case of Alexander the Great, God and King, and the persistence of his legend in later eras.
