Description

Two revealingly different accounts of the life of the most important figure of the Roman Empire

The biographies brought together here provide a rich and varied portrait of the king from two perspectives: that of Einhard, a close friend and adviser, and of Notker, a monastic scholar and musician writing fifty years after Charlemagne's death.
