The Byzantine princess Theophano, who came to the West in 972 to marry the Ottonian emperor Otto II, died as empress of the Ottonian Empire in Nijmegen in 991. In commemoration of this event a group of distinguished scholars met in 1991 at the castle of Hernen in the Netherlands with the aim of discussing various issues and aspects of Theophano's background in Byzantium, her life in the West, and her impact on society at the turn of the first millennium. This volume brings together in carefully edited form a group of the papers and proceedings from 1991. Each contribution helps to place Theophano in a broad cultural and historical context. The historical, intellectual and artistic background of her age are described, and there are essays on her education, her surroundings, and on the image of noble women in the middle ages.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book provides diverse and valuable insights into the interaction between Byzantium and the West. Historians and art historians are the primary audience, but the discussions usually are general enough that any inquisitive reader with at least a rudimentary knowledge of Greek terms would benefit." Mark Graham, Medieval Prosopography
"...this book presents the evidence failry and sheds some welcome and unaccustomed light on the tenth century in both East and WEst." Warren Treadgold, Speculum
