Praise for Derek Wilson’s Charlemagne

“Wilson interrelates the personal and political. . . with an effectiveness that few other biographers have matched.” —The Sunday Telegraph (London)

“Fast-paced. . . . Wilson deftly chronicles Charlemagne’s military exploits, political intrigues and religious devotion.” —Publishers Weekly

“Masterful and lively. . . . [Wilson] writes with great conviction and a breathtaking attention to the kind of personal detail that makes his books such compelling reading.” —Alison Weir, author of The Six Wives of Henry VIII

“Brilliant. . . . An utterly captivating and exquisitely written narrative about the rise and fall of the Carolingian empire. . . . Charlemagne is also a timely and provocative essay about the idea of Europe.” —Donald Yerxa, editor at Historically Speaking
