KIRKUS REVIEW

The eminent medievalist and Professor of the History of Ideas at Vienna University has put together this deluxe book on the first great barbarian empire to emerge after the fall of Rome. In thirty years of battle, Charlemagne brought Saxons, Bavarians and Lombards under his sway. He also became in legend, if not fact, the ideal Christian monarch whose interests ranged from astronomy to the classics.
