Robert of Auxerre (1156 - 1202 CE) is described by Guidoboni and Comastri (2005) as a Monk who lived in the monastery of St.Marien at Auxerre (France) from 1204 onwards. He wrote a Chronicon covering the period from the creation to 1211, which was continued by other hands up to 1228 (Guidoboni and Comastri, 2005). Mayer (1972:308-310) demonstrated strong similarities between the account of the earthquake in Robert's Chronicon and the letter by Phillipe de Plessis which suggests that Robert of Auxerre used the letter by Phillipe de Plessis as a source.
