Read in January, 1970

This is an outstanding historical novel about the great-granddaughter of Charlemagne, forced by her father at a young age into a dynastic marriage with an elderly Anglo-Saxon king. Instead of moaning or refusing to do her duty, Judith vows to conduct herself with dignity and at all costs avoid causing feuds among her new husband's family.
