The book is a short 154 pages to begin with, and mainly describes the events and people surrounding Karl's (Charlemagne's) coronation as roman emperor in 800 AD. Some historical facts support the narrative, but much speculation is relied on as the author introduces other characters central to the event, like the Abbott Alcuin, the Byzantine Empress Irene, and Isaac the Jew, a diplomatic emissary.Was this review helpful?
