Untitled[edit]

Is this Robert the basis of the legend on which Longfellow based his long poem

"Tales of a Wayside Inn" ; Robert of Sicily ?

This Robert never ruled on the Island.

The figure described in the poem appears to be apocryphal (brother of both a reigning Emperor and Pope). Boccaccio tells a similar story about Jovian in the Decameron. Choess 22:04, September 2, 2005 (UTC)
