John Julius Norwich was born in 1929. He was educated in Canada, at Eton, at the University of Strasbourg, and at Oxford, where he took a degree in French and Russian.

In 1964 he resigned from service in order to write.             Among other works, he has published A History of Venice, A Taste for Travel, and two volumes on the medieval Norman kingdom in Sicily.
