Mary Ann (or Marian) Evans (1819-1880) was an editor, translator, poet, essayist, short story writer, and novelist who wrote under the name of George Eliot for all but one of her books.

Romola was the fourth of her seven novels, and the only one set in in 15th century Italy rather than 19th century England. It was serialised in the Cornhill Magazine from July 1862 to August 1863, and published as a three volume book in 1863. The story is set in Florence, and tells of betrayal and revenge, set against the background of the struggle between the Medici family, Girolamo Savonarola, and those who followed neither.

The source text was taken from the University of Adelaide ebook library, and checked against the Penguin Classics edition. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotes, replaced italics and diacritics, and made changes to spelling, punctuation, and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.
