This is a nice little translation of the 12th century Historia Caroli Magni also known as Historia Karoli Magni et Rotholandi, but more commonly in English as the Pseudo-Turpin Chronicle.

The book tells of Charlemagne's battles in Spain and Africa and Roland's fight with giant, plus a prose version of Roland's fall at Roncevaux Pass. The chronicle ends with Charlemagne's revenge and the return and burial of the heroes bodies in France.

The book is essential reading for anyone researching the Song
