• TITLU în română: Portretul unui personaj negativ. Alexios Doukas Murtzuphlos în cronicile veneţiene
  • Subiect: This study has in intention to present the manner in which Emperor Alexios 'Murtzuphlos' was represented in the Venetian chronicles. Therefore, since these chronicles were written much later than the events of the Fourth Crusade, it does not deal with the perception of this character, but with his representation. Alexios V is represented by the Venetians in the following circumstances: as liberated by Alexios IV; as expressing his reluctance towards the payment of the financial debt promised by his predecessor; as assassinating Alexios the Younger; as negotiating with Doge Enrico Dandolo; as making an attempt to set fire to the Venetian fleet; as leading the Byzantine resistance during the second siege of Constantinople from the part of the crusaders; as being blinded by former Emperor Alexios III; as being executed by the crusaders. Relying upon these episodes, the study follows the way of representing them and making comparisons among the various Venetian chronicles. In addition, it also emphasizes the manner in which Alexios' deficiencies and qualities are expressed, along with a linguistic investigation of his name.
