This manuscript, a good part of it in William’s own hand, contains William’s digest of Roman imperial history, essentially an annotation, and in many cases a reworking, of chronicles from Dares to Hugh of Fleury (q.v.). It relates Roman history from the sack of Troy to the medieval empire, concluding with regnal lists of Byzantine and Ottonian emperors and French kings.
