Chaucer's Monk's Tale may also be based on Boccaccio's "De Casibus
Illustrium." This was a classical tradition of historiography dealing with famous men, which began with Plutarch's "Parallel Lives." Chaucer's incipit reads: ""Heer bigynneth the Monkes Tale De Casibus
Illustrium." (Here begins the Monk's Tale "De Casibus
Illustrium" – "On the Fates of Illustrious Men")." Many of the famous people that are in "The Monk's Tale" are also in Boccaccio's "De Casibus
Illustrium": "Adam, Samson, Hercules, Cenobia, Nero, Alexander the Great, Croesus." Some of these people also appear in Petrarch's "De Viris Illustribus". Chaucer, however, credits only Petrarch for this work:
""in honorem et in memoriam fortissimorum
qui pugnantes pro republica morte occubuerunt""
