Gueriʹno Meschiʹno [the Wretched]

.

An Italian romance, half chivalric and half spiritual, first printed in Padua in 1473. Guerin was the son of Millon, King of Albaʹnia. On the day of his birth his father was dethroned, and the child was rescued by a Greek slave, and called Meschino. When he grew up he fell in love with the Princess Elizeʹna, sister of the Greek Emperor, at Constantinople.
