Abstract:

The author has turned his attention to an episode described in the work of the Austrian canon Ansbertus “Historia de expeditione Friderici imperatoris”. It is a narrative about the advance of a detachment led by the count from Holland Berthold and the lawyer Frideric of Berge. According to Ansbert the detachment moved away from the crusader army to conduct negotiations with the Serbian provincial governor Stefan Neman. On its way the detachment crossed the region of Gradets. The author rejects the concept that Gradets was situated near the town of Plovdiv or at the foot of the mountain Gradets to the north of Kriva Palanka and expresses the opinion that this was the name of a region near the village of Grad in the district of Pianets (Macedonia), where ruins of a fortress dating back to the Antiquity and the Middle Ages have been found.
