Overview

Loosely based on the Primary Russian Chronicles, the story is of a Saxon prince and his two companions who arrive at the time of the founding of a Viking empire on the major rivers of Russia. In spite of implacable enemies and rapids, the Vikings and their allies swarm down the Dnieper River and attack the queen of cities - Constantinople. After the invasion is over, Prince Ambrose is sent south by the Rus tribesmen as emissary.

Exciting as he finds the imperial city, he is caught up in the politics of the decadent court. Before he is killed, he and his friends are forced to flee to England.
