Carl Bezold (1859 – 1922) was a German orientalist. He initially had an interest in Chinese, and translated from Syriac. He became known as an Assyriologist. Nevertheless in 1909 he edited and printed the Ge'ez (Ethiopic) epic Kebra Nagast, collating the most valuable texts and with critical notes. [Bezold, Carl. Kebra Nagast: Die Herrlichkeit der Könige [Kebra Nagast: the Glory of the Kings] Abhandlungen der Königlich Bayerischen Akademie, Band 23, Abth.]

In June 1901, he received the honorary Doctor of Laws (DLL) from the University of Glasgow.[1]
