About Floris Books Legends of the Norse Kings

The Saga of King Ragnar Goatskin and The Dream of King Alfdan The tales of the medieval Norse kings were originally sung or told as 'sagas'. These were legendary adventures full of exciting episodes in which the hero fought wicked enemies or even dragons in order to win the hand of a princess or to fulfil a great destiny.

The two sagas in this book date from the twelfth to the fifteenth centuries. The Danish ruler known as King Ragnar Goatskin was famous for fighting a dragon which had captured the princess Tora, and so won her hand in marriage. She died after giving him two sons and he then married Kraka, a beautiful maiden of royal birth disguised as a farm girl. Their struggle against the evils of war and witchcraft are vividly narrated in the stories that follow.

The Dream of King Alfdan tells the adventures of the brave princess Ragnild and her brother Guthorm after the death of their father King Sigurd, and how Alfdan's dream that he will have a son to rule over all Norway comes true in the end.

These stories of Norse kings, beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt, are drawn from the sagas recorded by the historian Saxo Grammaticus and other Scandinavian writers of the Middle Ages.
