Its full title is 'Noveno libro de Amads de Gaula, crnica del muy valiente y esforzado prncipe y caballero de la Ardiente Espada Amads de Grecia, hijo de Lisuarte de Grecia, emperador de Constantinopla y de Trapisonda, y rey de Rodas'.

Published in 1530, the book is divided into two parts which deal with the adventures of Amadis of Greece, Knight of the Burning Sword, son of Lisuarte of Greece and Onoloria of Trabizond (Trapisonda), as well as his love for both Princess Lucela of France and Princess Niquea of Thebes, whom he subsequently marries.

Silva followed this work with another – 'Don Florisel de Niquea' (Sir Florisel of Nicaea) (1532) – which deals with the knightly adventures and loves of first-born son of Amads de Grecia and Princess Niquea, and with the later 'Don Rogel de Grecia' (Sir Rogel of Greece) (1535).
