            King and Emperor: A New Life of Charlemagne
              

            King and Emperor: A New Life of Charlemagne (EPUB ebook)

            By Nelson, Janet L.

            'A remarkable book: the dramatic story of a truly extraordinary man ... brilliant' Helen Castor, author of She-Wolves A major new biography of one of the most extraordinary of all rulers, and the father of present-day Europe Charles, king of the Franks, is one of the most remarka...ble figures ever to rule a European super-state. That is why he is so often called by the French 'Charlemagne', and by the Germans 'Karl der Grosse'. His strength of character was felt to be remarkable from early in his long reign. Warfare and accident, vermin and weather have destroyed much of the evidence for his rule in the twelve centuries since his death, but a remarkable amount still survives.Janet L. Nelson's wonderful new book brings together everything we know about Charlemagne and sifts through the evidence to come as close as we can to understanding the man and his motives. Nelson has an extraordinary knowledge of the sources and much of the book is a sort of detective story, prying into and interpreting fascinating material and often obdurate scraps, from prayerbooks to skeletons, gossip to artwork.Above all, Charles's legacy lies in his deeds and their continuing resonance, as he shaped duchies and counties, rebuilt and founded towns and monasteries, and consciously set himself up not just as King of the Franks, but as the new 'Emperor governing the Roman Empire'. His successors - in some ways to the present day - have struggled to interpret, misinterpret, copy or subvert Charlemagne's legacy. Nelson gets us as close as we can ever hope to come to the real figure, as understood in his own time.

            Queen Victoria was the longest reigning monarch in British history. In this concise biography, Lady Longford, long recognised as an authority on the subject, gives a full account of Queen Victoria's life and provides her unique assessment of the monarch. Victoria ascended the thr...one in 1837 on the death of her uncle William IV. In 1840 she married her first cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and for the next twenty years they were inseparable. Their descendants were to succeed to most of the thrones of Europe. When Albert died in 1861 Victoria's overwhelming grief caused her to almost withdraw from public life for several years. This perceived dereliction of public duty, coupled with rumours about her relationship with her Scottish ghillie, John Brown, led to increasing criticism. Coaxed back into the public eye by Disraeli, she resumed her political and constitutional interest with vigour until her death in 1901. This classic and concise biography of Britain's longest-reigning monarch was written by Lady Elizabeth Longford who was a renowned biographer (she died in 2002). Her other titles include Wellington, Byron and the Queen Mother. Elizabeth Longford's first work on Queen Victoria, Victoria RI, won the James Tait Black memorial prize.

            Decouvrez l'histoire d'un des couples francais les plus celebres : Napoleon et Josephine, qui marquerent la France a jamais. Napoleon et Josephine se sont inscrits dans la lignee des amoureux mythiques comme Marc-Antoine et Cleopatre ou Heloise et Abelard. Durant treize ans, ils ...vecurent une aventure sans pareil qui les mena au faite de la gloire, faisant d'eux des heros de la mythologie moderne. Quand le futur empereur offrit a celle qui allait devenir son epouse un anneau d'or sur lequel etait grave Au destin, il ignorait alors qu'elle deviendrait un jour plus qu'une reine , comme l'avait prophetise, autrefois, une voyante. Sans la presence solaire de la belle Creole a ses cotes, son regne n'aurait certainement pas brille d'un aussi grand eclat. Et, quand ils durent se separer pour raisons d'Etat, force est de constater que la chance l'abandonna, l'entrainant irrevocablement vers la chute. L'Aigle et la Creole est un recit biographique aux accents romanesques qui restitue la fabuleuse ascension d'un homme et d'une femme, nes pour gravir ensemble les marches d'un trone en devenant des legendes vivantes. EXTRAIT Apres avoir arrange discretement quelques meches de sa coiffure, il lui avait effleure doucement la joue. Une partie de l'assistance avait pu remarquer son emotion et combien il avait mis de tendresse dans son geste pour la ceindre de la couronne imperiale.

Toutefois, elle avait eu quelque difficulte a contenir son emotion et des larmes avaient peu a peu embue ses yeux. Instinctivement, elle avait remercie le Ciel pour elle et ses enfants, sans oublier de rendre grace a celui qui en ce jour memorable faisait d'elle plus qu'une reine comme on le lui avait predit autrefois dans son ile. En se relevant, elle l'avait fixe avec un regard plein d'amour et de gratitude. Napoleon avait esquisse un sourire sans rien perdre de la gravite qu'exigeait la situation
