DESCRIPTION 

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 fulfill a great destiny.

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. Other stories of royal intrigue and history are also included.

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.
