This is the third book in the Famous Men series. The stories begin with the tales of the Germanic chiefs who defeated the Romans, Alaric, Genseric, and Theodoric. Then there are the stories of the famous kings of the Franks, Clovis, Charles Martel, and Charlemagne. Attention is also paid to non-European leaders like Justinian, Mohammed, Harun-Al-Rashid, and El Cid. The second half of the book includes chapters on William the Conqueror, Frederick Barbarossa, Tamerlane, Marco Polo, and Joan of Arc (an honorary Famous Man). The stories of many of these figures canÆt be found for children anywhere else. Don't just show them pictures of castles, let them read the stories of those who built them and lived in them!
