Using Venetian, Greek and Turkish sources, Leonardos has created a vivid and exciting account of the last days of the Eastern Roman Empire, the new Rome.Leonardos’ novel grapples with the traditional views of modern Greek historiography on how the Byzantine Empire fell, and asks questions such as what really happened.

What were the intrigues and machinations that played a part in the fall of the thousand-year-old empire? Who betrayed Constantine XI Palaiologos, raising the Ottoman standard at the Palace of Vlachernae, as Constantine was fighting at the city walls for the very survival of his kingdom and Christendom in the East?The answers to these questions are set against the backdrop of the social upheaval and chaos of the late middle ages.

With lively portrayals of the major players, Leonardos also relates what later became of the heroes of the day.
