ueen Emma and the Vikings Power Love and Greed in 11th Century England Read & download Ñ 108 A lively account of the harsh realities of war and politics in this era the vagaries of political marriage and the thin line between invaders and settlers Publishers Weekly Emma one of England's most remarkable ueens made her. A delightfully readable bookThere are only so many textual sources for Anglo Saxon history and O Brien makes the most of them So there s familiarity about it both in the familiar historical information from the Anglo Saxon Chronicles and the tropes we see in television and movies I found myself thinking from time to time of Lord of the Rings and Game of ThronesThe book actually has power and greed in it than love It was good to see the events of Emma s life and her lifetime neatly and chronologically explained and the fate of her sons and companionsO Brien s narrative doesn t leave much sense of Emma s personality or her motivation but she characterizes her as a survivor and so she was Perhaps that was all the motivation she needed
