Ferdinand Chalandon

Ferdinand Chalandon (Lyon, February 10, 1875 – October 31, 1921, Lausanne, Switzerland) was a French medievalist and Byzantinist.

Chalandon’s work remains the most substantial study of the Normans in Italy and though the details of what he wrote a hundred years ago have in places been modified, it remains the single most important work available to historians.

Being a former member of the École française de Rome, Ferdinand Chalandon was a winner of the Grand Prix Gobert in 1909.
