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.
