‘Kathrin McCann’s study makes compelling reading for all those interested in the workings of early medieval kingship. McCann not only establishes the necessary theoretical framework with erudition and due consideration of the current scholarly discourse, but also illustrates her argument with a series of fascinating case studies.’
-Professor Thomas Honegger, Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena
