Book Review: Charlemagne by Johannes Fried : [Rezension zu:] Charlemagne. Johannes Fried (trans. by Peter Lewis). Harvard University Press. 2016.

  • In Charlemagne, Johannes Fried offers a new account of the life of the Frankish king and emperor, one of the most influential figures in European history. Although the limited surviving resources from the period make the book more of an in-depth account of the socio-political context of Charlemagne’s reign rather than a strict biography, Sara Perley welcomes this as a well-researched and engaging read that will foster curiosity about both Charlemagne and this lesser known period of history.
