Wikisource Link[edit]

The Elizabeth Dawes translation of the Alexiad is now available on English Wikisource. I'm a wikipedia new and I don't know how to insert the link at the bottom of the page —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.208.36.133 (talk) 23:15, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Needs major revision[edit]

While it's obviously researched to some degree, the article is plagued by leaps of logic, lack of appropriate objectivity, and claims lacking any form of citation. It reads more like a high school paper than an encyclopedia article.

I did some revision (maybe went a little overboard with pointing out where it needs citing), but it needs a lot of work. --Falkan 00:19, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Sorry if I removed any of your changes, but the constant citation notes were extremely distracting (and sometimes unnecessary...I'm sure we don't need to cite the fact that she wrote the Alexiad...). Adam Bishop 00:55, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

"One of the best novels about Anna Komene "I, Anna Komene" is written by Vera Mutafchieva, a Bulgarian writer and historian." Isn't that subjective? "As was customary for nobility in the medieval times, Anna was betrothed at infancy." I'm not sure it was that ubiquitous.... Umma Kynes 21:48, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Parts on the Claim to the Throne also need revision - half of every sentence is in quotations. Elavina —Preceding undated comment added 05:22, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Anna's children?[edit]

Some of the links for Anna Comnena's children lead to other, similary named but different persons of the Byzantine times. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Apavlides24 (talkcontribs) 11:56, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
