Robert of Gloucester
Robert Of Gloucester, an English chronicler, lived in the latter half of the 13th century. He was a monk in the Abbey of Gloucester, and does not appear to have lived long after 1265. He composed a rhymed chronicle of more than ten thousand verses, written in Anglo-Saxon, containing the history of England from the time of the Romans till Edward I. It is a philosophical curiosity, but is full of the most absurd fables. It was published entire by Hearne (Oxford, 1724, 2 vols.), and reprinted in 1810.
