"George the Monk at work", an early 14th-century miniature from Tver George Hamartolos or Hamartolus (Greek: Γεώργιος Ἁμαρτωλός) was a monk at Constantinople under Michael III (842–867) and the author of a chronicle of some importance. Hamartolus is not his name but the epithet he gives to himself in the title of his work: "A compendious chronicle from various chroniclers and interpreters, gathered together and arranged by George, a sinner (ὐπὸ Γεωργίου ἁμαρτωλοῦ)".

The contesting sides are uncertain, and its outcome even more so. True, it does seem to tell us that the undoubtedly historical Ambrosius led one side and a certain Vitalinus the other. But even here some have suggested that this Ambrosius could not be the Ambrosius Aurelianus mentioned by Gildas, but another person altogether, perhaps the father of this early British hero.[1] Who Vitalinus might be, is a matter for endless debate.

In this way they enforced respect for the royal rights and controlled the local rulers to see if they were still loyal to them. If necessary the palaces were also used as a military base. Fig. 10 Fig. 11 Nijmegen was important to the Frankish rulers and the royal supervision on Nijmegen and the region was firm.

His skepticism about the crumpled petitions he had put before me was understandable. They certainly do not inspire as much awe as hoary Hebrew tomes or official Polish documents.
