## Historical Note

Leonardo Fibonacci relates in the prologue how he was invited to the court of Emperor Frederick $\text {II}$ of Sicily to compete in a mathematical tournament.

He solved all the problems presented to him by **Johannes of Palermo**.

The problems and their answers were published in *Flos*.

Some suggest that they were also published in ** Liber Quadratorum**, but it has not been possible to corroborate this.

## Critical View
