The Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutherfurd

‘Dublin’ evokes the mystic Celts, the warrior Vikings, the controversial English. What marks did these groups leave? What tales of ambition and passion could the city’s history hold?

The characters vividly show the progression of Dublin, and Ireland, over the centuries. Celtic ‘Dubh Linn’ is a beautiful spot pulled into conflict, ‘Dyflin’ a Viking port, and Dublin an English territory. The city grows as its citizens seek fortune amidst war, love, and betrayal. Historical figures such as charismatic St. Patrick and cunning Henry II make their mark. The Princes of Ireland shows the history of Dublin and Ireland up to the reign of Henry VIII.
