Publisher Description

Sagas are stories mostly about ancient Nordic and Germanic history, early Viking voyages, the battles that took place during the voyages and migration to Iceland and of feuds between Icelandic families. They were written in the Old Norse language, mainly in Iceland.

Kings' sagas are of the lives of Scandinavian kings. They were composed in the 12th to 14th centuries.

The Icelanders' sagas, a.k.a. Family Sagas, are stories of real events, passed in oral form till they eventually were recorded, mostly in the 13th century. These are the highest form of the classical Icelandic saga writing.

Legendary Sagas blend remote history with myth or legend. The aim is on a lively narrative and entertainment.
