    King and Emperor eBook â King and Epub / king free, emperor epub, King and book, King and Emperor MOBIReading the biography of Charlesmagne reminded me why I loved my early medieval course at university so much and also reminded me why I then specialised in modern history Janet Nelson has undertaken a considerable work of love and dedication to put together a 500 page biography of the greatest of the early medieval kings using such source material as was at her disposal A couple of or less reliable lives Einhard being the key one some chronicle material the odd letter and 154 charters means that the source material is by no means negligib

    King and Emperor eBook â King and Epub / king free, emperor epub, King and book, King and Emperor MOBI4 A Scholarly Biography of Charlemagne's LifeThis work by Janet L Nelson represents a thorough scholarly biography of Charlemagne Nelson's understanding and familiarity with the source material shines through in this book in which Charlemagne is stripped back from the years of mythologising and idolising that has ocurred since his death Charlemagne is presented as distinctly human and this book is the first time I have felt I could reasonably understand Charlema

    King and Emperor eBook â King and Epub / king free, emperor epub, King and book, King and Emperor MOBIOverall this was a fun scholarly biography of Charles the Great A touch of the dramatic witicisms in the text and the notes Lost a little stem at the endReally the worst part was the maps whomever put together the maps collected in the front didn't do a great job of syncing citiesmountains to the names of cities and mountains in the text

    King and Emperor eBook â King and Epub / king free, emperor epub, King and book, King and Emperor MOBIIn the introduction the author states that there are many books that offer excellent narratives of Charles's reign I probably would have been better off reading one of those than this scholarly work Nelson's account of Charles's life is highly detailed and re

    King and Emperor eBook â King and Epub / king free, emperor epub, King and book, King and Emperor MOBIThis is a superb scholarly biography of one of the dominant political figures of the Western world Dr Nelson certainly has a prodigious understanding of the contemporary sources that bring Charlemagne's long reign to life The author succeeds in putting us in Charles' court as eyewitness to the operations and conflicts that he needs to direct and manage to the dissent in his extended family as well as how he serves well in the role of paterfamilias not just to his own family but to the lands that his political system seeks to control A fascinating story well told

    King and Emperor eBook â King and Epub / king free, emperor epub, King and book, King and Emperor MOBIA heavy read but great biography of Charlemagne through a review of the primary sources I felt as though taken back to the 700800s a few times Maybe not for everybody but I learned a lot about Karl his family his wars with the Saxons and Avars and this period of the history of Francia and early Germany
