Overview

Legends of the Norse Kings brings together two epic medieval sagas of brave kings and fierce dragons, perilous journeys and deadly battles, tales of love, magic and destiny.

 The two sagas in this book date from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries. The Saga of King Ragnar Goatskin recounts the adventures of the famous Danish ruler who fought a dragon to win a princess’s hand in marriage.

 The Dream of King Alfdan retells the legend of the heroic King who rescued princess Ragnild and her brother Guthorm and whose dream, of a son who would rule all of Norway, comes true.

 These stories of Norse kings are beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt, drawing on the sagas recorded by the historian Saxo Grammaticus and other Scandinavian writers of the Middle Ages.
