IN translating L'Epine's charming legend, I have felt it my duty to

adhere as closely as possible to the text. "Adaptations" and "versions,"

whether presented on the stage or set down in black and white, seem to

claim for those, who give them in English, a greater share of the

glory than I feel myself to deserve, in the slightest degree, in

this instance. The delicacy with which the moral is interwoven in the

narrative, without in the least injuring the true legendary tone of the

adventures related, is as far beyond any improvement I could make, as

it is above the usual clap-trap "tag" with which dramas and children's

stories are ordinarily burdened.

I scarcely know to whom I should appeal as my readers, for the story I

have delighted in rendering into English seems to me likely to afford

pleasure in the perusal to older heads than those which I am sure would

gather over the pages in the nursery. For there are a quiet humour and

a delicate fancy running through the legend, amid all the exciting

accounts of loves and wars, tourneys and battles, accidents and

adventures, which do not lose interest because they are illustrated by

the powerful pencil of Gustave Dore. That great artist's fancy supplies

these introductory lines with a tail-piece, which aptly typifies the

book. Its author has ably made the doings of knights and paladins point

a useful moral as well as adorn an interesting tale, just as the artist

makes the arms of the chivalric age serve to frighten the birds from the

fields that supply our humble daily bread.

THE story which I am about to relate happened (if it ever did happen)

in the time of the famous Emperor Charlemagne. There is no necessity,

in speaking of that remarkable epoch, to invent facts. The truth is so

astounding that it will make you open your eyes quite wide enough. What

marvellous doings of fairies, ogres, or demons, can compare with the

deeds of Charlemagne? and what magic ring could be as potent as his


But before I proceed further it will be as well to sketch for you, in a

few lines, the portrait of this hero.

He was eight feet in height, according to the measurement of his own

feet, which historians allege with fervour were of remarkable length.

His eyes were large and piercing. When he was enraged you could almost

have fancied they flashed fire. His face was broad and ruddy, his hair

brown, and he wore a beard that was innocent of the barber's shears.

Although he measured eight feet round the middle, his figure was

wellproportioned. He devoured with ease at one repast a quarter of

mutton, or a goose, or a ham, or a peacock. He was moderate in the

matter of wine, which he used to take with water. His strength was so

enormous that it was mere child's play to him to straighten with his

naked hands three horse-shoes at a time. He could lift at arm's length,

on the palm of his hand, a knight in full armour; and lie could cleave

in twain, with one blow of his sword, a horseman in panoply of war--aye,

and his horse into the bargain. This was mere sport to him, and often,

with a charming complaisance which was peculiarly his own, he would take

pleasure in thus giving those about him an ocular demonstration of his

superhuman strength.

His anger was as terrible as the thunder, for it was as ready to burst

forth and to strike.

He carves out a kingdom, with the compassion of a Titus, the sound

judgment of a Solomon, the piety of a Joseph, the magnificence of a

Sardanapalus, and the wisdom of an AEsop, he united two qualities more

rare than all these put together? when he spoke he meant what he said,

and when others spoke to him he took time for reflection, in order to

make sure that he thoroughly understood their meaning.

The dominion which his father bequeathed him did not suit the largeness

of his views, so he carved out for himself a kingdom which was more in

harmony with his gigantic instincts.

[Illustration: 018]

Born in 742, and raised to the throne in 768, he had in 770 already

made conquest of Aquitaine and Lombardy. Four years after Germany was

subjugated by him. He made fifty-three military expeditions, and he

began the ninth century by having himself crowned Emperor of the West by

Pope Leo the Third. He was a generous dispenser of crowns, and gave

away principalities and duchies as freely as now-a-days we give away

recorderships. Pie had two capitals in his dominions: the one was Rome,

the other was Aix-la-Chapelle. He promulgated the code of laws known as

Capitularies. He defended religion, spread the Gospel, encouraged the

fine arts, and introduced into his cathedrals organs which he imported

from Lombardy. Surrounded by mighty minds, whose efforts he stimulated,

and whose labours he shared, he founded many schools and

universities. He died in 814, after three-and-forty years of sovereign

power--three-and-forty years of victories and wonders.

Really, my dear readers, if you are not satisfied with Charlemagne for a

hero, you must be very difficult to please!

I SHOULD be extremely sorry to weary you, my dear readers; in fact,

I should be wretched if you were to look on this volume as serious

reading, and yet I am compelled to sum up in a few words the great

events which agitated France at the time my story commences. However,

put a bold face on it, and bolt this chapter without taking breath, as

you would swallow any peculiarly nauseous draught.

After the death of Pepin the Short, in 768, his two sons, Carloman and

Charlemagne, divided his kingdom. Carloman, who was the elder, took

Burgundy, Provence, Septimania, and the chief part of Neustria. His

coronation took place on the 9th October, 768, at Laon. Charlemagne had

part of Neustria, Bavaria, and Thuringia. He was crowned at Soissons

on the same day as Carloman. Aquitaine was also shared between the

brothers. You are probably aware that Pepin the Short was the founder

of the second line of French kings. The first line, that of the

Merovingians, was not, however, extinct when he came to the throne, for

the Dukes of Aquitaine were of Merovingian descent. They sprang from

Caribert, King of Toulouse, the son of Clotaire the Second. Eudes, who

shares with Charles Martel the glory of having conquered the Saracens in

the sanguinary battle of Poitiers, in 732, was also of this family.

Hunald, the son of Eudes, had, at the time of Pepin's death, lived

five-and-twenty years in the convent to which that monarch had consigned

him. Now, the Merovingian Dukes of Aquitaine had a fiercehatred of the

Carlovingian Kings of France, and accordingly, as soon as Hunald heard

of the accession of Carloman and Charlemagne, he quitted the monastery,

took up arms, and proclaimed the independence of Aquitaine.

[Illustration: 021]

The two newly-crowned kings had reason to be alarmed at an outbreak like

this, for, unless put down at the outset, it might arouse and encourage

the pretensions of the descendants of Clovis with regard to Neustria.

Charlemagne summoned a Parliament, to which he invited his brother. They

both came to it, attended by their ecclesiastics and nobles, and war was

decided upon.

The two kings crossed the Loire together; but Carloman, who, if one

may judge from the chronicles of the period, was of an un-amiable

disposition, had such quarrels with his brother about the partition of

their inheritance, that it was even feared they would come to blows.

They therefore determined to part company. Carloman returned to Laon,

and Charlemagne prosecuted the enterprise alone. He overran Aquitaine

without meeting any resistance, as Charles Martel had done before him.

Hunald, a fugitive, and hard pressed, found himself obliged to seek

shelter with his nephew Wolf, Duke of Gascony. Wolf! When was a name in

a fairy tale bestowed with more propriety? This Wolf was most deservedly

called so, as you will see. As soon as Charlemagne discovered where his

enemy had found an asylum, he dispatched some of his foremost knights

to the Duke of Gascony, commanding him to deliver up the fugitive, and

threatening, if he refused, to enter his duchy and lay it waste.

[Illustration: 022]

In those days, my dear readers, travelling was not quite so expeditious

as it 's now! so Charlemagne, foreseeing he would have to wait some

months, established his camp on the borders of the forest. In the next

place, in order to put the time of his stay to profitable use, and to

give employment to his troops, about five leagues from Bordeaux he had a

strong fortress which was called Fronsac, or rather Fransiac, the castle

of the Franks. The building of the castle was hardly completed when the

by Wolf of Gascony, who did not in the least scruple to deliver up to

Charlemagne, as a proof of his fealty, Hunald and his family, who had

claimed shelter of him.

The insurrection having been thus deprived of its leader, Aquitaine

submitted to Charlemagne.

[Illustration: 022]

[Illustration: 023]


CHARLEMAGNE determined to celebrate the fortunate issue of his campaign.

Jousts and tourneys were organised, and heralds were sent out far

and wide; and before long knights began to pour in from the various

provinces: some to show their courage and exercise their strength and

skill, others in the hope of enriching themselves with the spoils of

their vanquished adversaries.

The spot chosen for the tournament was an extent of velvet sward

situated at the edge of a forest of oaks that were five hundred years

old. A semi-circle of low hills formed a sort of amphitheatre, in the

centre of which a vast area, reserved for the combatants, was surrounded

with palisades. There were two entrances to the lists--one on the north,

the other on the south--each wide enough to admit of the passage of six

knights on horseback abreast. Two heralds and six pursuivants had charge

of each of these entries. Small detachments were scattered about here

and there to maintain order--no easy task, for the inhabitants of the

surrounding country, with their wives, had assembled from all quarters

alongside of the camp. On them it was difficult to impress a due

observance of discipline, and the unmanageable came in for showers of

blows that were not laid on less heavily because it was a conquered


On a level space not far from the northern gate were raised twelve

gorgeous pavilions, reserved for the twelve principal French champions

who held the lists. Pennons with their colours, and those of their

lady-loves, fluttering in the wind, waved in the sunlight like flying

serpents. Each knight had his shield suspended before his tent, under

the charge of a squire.

Further off, less costly tents served as lodgings for numerous warriors,

who were drawn together either by friendship or want of means. This

community formed a quaint sort of town, which had, as it were,

suburbs consisting of stable-sheds, and huts of all sorts, occupied

by armourers, farriers, surgeons, and artisans, whose presence on such

occasions was indispensable. Merchants at these times were exempted from

all tolls and taxes, and accordingly the Jews had come to sell Venetian

trinkets and Oriental perfumes to the ladies; the Bretons brought their

honey for sale, and the Provencals displayed their clear olive oil; and

amid all these good things were to be seen, rambling about at random,

jugglers, troubadours, minstrels, and all other classes of poor

Bohemians, whose wits are sharp if their purses are scant. On the

borders of the wood was erected a pavilion more magnificent than all the

others--it was that of Charlemagne; it was of cloth of gold, with purple

stripes, powdered with gold eagles, and it was so bright that one would

have needed the eye of an eagle to support its lustre for an instant.

All about it were knights, squires, lackeys, and pages, coming and going

as thickly as bees in a hive around their queen. On either side of the

royal tent, and all along the edge of the forest, were erected seats

for the spectators of rank, who promised to be numerous. They flocked-in

every hour in crowds, so delighted were they with spectacles of

this description, and, above all, so desirous were they of beholding

Charlemagne, whose name had already begun to resound through Europe. The

royal box, more lofty than the others, and more richly decorated, was a

little in front of the tent. Charlemagne had ordained that the Queen of

Beauty should share this with him, in order that she might be surrounded

by the most valiant knights and the most lovely ladies. The two retinues

attended on her amid incessant peals of mirth and merriment.

Finally, my dear readers, to finish the picture, figure to yourselves,

situated half-way between the lists and the forest, and surmounted by

a huge iron cross, a Gothic chapel, in which, each morning, Turpin, the

good and gallant Bishop of Rheims, officiated as priest in the presence

of the kneeling multitude.

[Illustration: 025]

At length the day of the tournament arrived. There had been many jousts

before, but never had there been one of equal magnificence. From the

earliest dawn the places were all occupied. Even the old trees were as

thickly loaded with curious spectators as a plum-tree in August; and the

good folks were right to crowd so, for had they lived their lives six

times over, they would never have seen anything equal to the sight

again, it was absolutely necessary for the soldiers to lay about

with their pike-staves, in order to calm the eager ardour of the most

enthusiastic; but nobody took any notice of thumps that, under any other

circumstances, would have been received with an ill grace.

All of a sudden a flourish of trumpets made the air resound. A

glittering advanced-guard entered the enclosure and took up their

position, and then Charlemagne entered the arena at the head of a

numerous escort of knights and nobles, and of ecclesiastics in rich

vestments. Enthusiasm knew no bounds. "Montjoie! Montjoie!" resounded

on every side. Charlemagne, who later in life affected the greatest

simplicity in dress, had assumed for this great occasion the most

brilliant attire. His shirt was of fine linen, its border enriched

with gold embroidery. His tunic was of silk, plated with gold, and was

covered with precious stones of surpassing brightness--emeralds, rubies,

and topaz. His armlets and girdle were chased with the most exquisite

art, and his alms-pouch, which hung at his side, was besprinkled with

pearls and gems enough to dazzle a blind man. His brow was bound with

a glittering diadem. His whole figure shone with an unaccustomed

splendour, and he greatly surpassed in magnificence the grandest of

his dukes, counts, or barons. His steed, covered with gold and rich

trappings, seemed proud of the burthen it carried.

The Queen Himiltrude, a Frank by birth, advanced in the midst of her

attendants. Her neck was tinged with a delicate rose, like that of a

Roman matron in former ages. Her locks were bound about her temples

with gold and purple bands; her robe was looped up with ruby clasps. Her

coronet and her purple robes gave her an air of surpassing majesty. She
