Fra cronache e poemi franco-veneti: 'Rolandin', Aleramo e Matilde di Canossa

Roberto Galbiati

Abstract


The article compares the legend of Berta and Milone and the childhood of Orlando as preserved in the Italian Geste Francor and the legend of Aleramo and of Matilde di Canossa’s birth. These legends tell a very similar story and their first certain attestations are approximately contemporary. This means they probably were developed together. The article asserts the original legend was the legend of Orlando. The legend of Orlando would be itself an Italian elaboration of an Old-French chanson de geste concerning Berta and Milone’s clandestine love.
