Kort biografi
René Grousset was born in Aubais, France, and graduated from the University of Montpellier in 1903 with a degree in history. He served in the French army during World War I. He began his career by studying Asian art and in 1912 joined the staff of the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His first major published work was the multi-volume Histoire de l’Asie (1922). He was named a Professor of History and Geography at the prestigious École des langues orientales in Paris. In 1925, he was appointed adjunct conservator of the Musée Guimet and secretary of the Journal asiatique.  He later held positions at the École des sciences politiques ("Sciences Po") and, from 1933, the Musée Cernuschi, before finally returning to the Musée Guimet as chief curator. Although he produced numerous books and articles on Asian and Oriental civilizations, his two most important works are considered to be his Histoire des Croisades (1934-1936) and L'Empire des Steppes (Empire of the Steppes: A History of Central Asia, 1939). During World War II, Prof. Grousset was dismissed from his museum posts by the Vichy government, but continued his wide-ranging research on his own and published three volumes on China and the Mongols during the war. He traveled in Persia and Syria in the late 1920s and visited Japan after the war. He became a member of France’s Conseil des musées nationaux, and was elected to the Académie française in 1946. In his later years, he published four more works concentrated on Asia Minor and the Near East.

This book is in part what inspired me to write my first screenplay, based on a meager paragraph about the leper King Baldwin IV of Jerusalem, and the Battle of Montgisard. Several years later, the Ridley Scott movie Kingdom of Heaven used the character (although to lesser effect).

> Figures de proue, par René Grousset, Par Emmanuel HECHT, publié le 05/07/2012 à 10:30. — "Cette âme tumultueuse, romantique et secrètement indomptée a eu, comme peu de ses contemporains (car chez lui tout artifice littéraire est absent), le sentiment profond de la nature : "J'aime les grands arbres. Ce sont des ancêtres. Je rêve de sapinières au printemps, tout humides de pluie…"" Il était une époque pas si lointaine - au mitan du XXe siècle - où l'on écrivait l'Histoire avec des envolées à la Chateaubriand. C'est Bismarck qu'évoque ici René Grousset (1885-1952), grand spécialiste des croisades, dans ce recueil consacré au "rôle décisif des héros" : Alexandre le Grand, César, Charlemagne, Frédéric Ier Barberousse, Louis XIV, etc. Cette galerie de portraits brillants, à la manière de Saint-Simon et de Michelet, se déguste comme autant de mets rares.
