On thousand years ago, during the Viking Age, an extraordinary young man was born in Ireland. His people, plagued by warfare, were weary not only from the Vikings'' brutal raids along the coast, but also from the continuous warring among local chieftains. The Irish had become a drowntrodden race.

But a real-life hero changed the destiny of Ireland. This is the story of Brian Boru, who as a young man took it upon himself to revolutionize tenth-century Ireland, striving to create a peaceful land where his fellow Irish men and women cold be safe from harm. And succeed he did. Brian, crowned High King, restored peace and fostered prosperity in the country that was his home--and his heart. Brian Boru: Emperor of the Irish is a beautiful and compelling true story of Irish history.

From Our Editors

One thousand years ago, Brian Boru was just a young boy in the west of Ireland when he witnessed the horrors of the Norse invasion--an attack that left his mother and two of his brothers dead. It was then that he swore to one day put an end to his country's suffering. Boru grew to be a great warrior. He fulfilled his dream and became the first High King of a united Ireland--a land where all people could live in safety and without fear
