  • Despite the gulf of time separating us from the warrior-king (742-814), Wilson provides a vivid portrait of Charlemagne

  • Wilson... separate[s] out the facts from the myths and to show Charlemagne's achievements in the light of his period

    Contemporary Review
  • Historian and novelist Wilson takes us on a ride back into a time that antedates the periods of his previous works by a thousand years... Informative and even provocative

    Kirkus Reviews
  • The British author of popular royal histories explores the life of Charles the Great, whose empire fractured following his death in 814... Concluding with the symbolic uses made of Charlemagne from the Crusades to Charles de Gaulle, Wilson successfully regales readers with this crucial figure in European history
