Manuscript of the Crònica by Ramon Muntaner.

Ramon Muntaner (Catalan pronunciation: [r?'mom munt?'ne]) (1265 – 1336 ) was a Catalan mercenary and writer who wrote the Crònica, a chronicle of his life, including his adventures as a commander in the Catalan Company. He was born at Perelada.

Biography

The Catalan Company was an army of light infantry under the leadership of Roger de Flor that was made up of Aragonese and Catalan mercenaries, known as Almogavars; Roger led the Company to Constantinople to help the Greeks against the Turks.

For a lapse of time (1308-1315) he was governor of the island of Djerba, after being conquered by the Crown Of Aragon.[1]

Ramon Muntaner's Crònica is one of the four Catalan Grand Chronicles through which the historian views thirteenth- and fourteenth century military and political matters in the Crown of Aragon and Catalonia.[2]

He died at Ibiza in 1336.
