The First Lost Tale: Golde the Mother (2010)

cover

“The Lost Tales of Mercia” are ten short stories set in England near the end of the Viking Age, releasing every other Tuesday. Though fictional, they are heavily researched and feature many real historical figures as described in the ancient texts of the “Anglo-Saxon Chronicles.” They are intended to portray what might have and could have happened. These quick reads will entertain and educate at the same time. Read the stories in any order, though interconnected, they do not follow each other chronologically, and each tale stands alone.

The First Lost Tale, “Golde the Mother,” is about the mother of Eadric Streona. It sheds light on Eadric’s strange childhood, and raises the question of who fathered the boy who would become notorious as one of the most treacherous men in England.

 

Lost Tales of Mercia series: 1. Golde the Mother, 2. Ethelred the King, 3. Aydith the Aetheling, 4. Athelward the Historian, 5. Alfgifu the Orphan, 6. Hastings the Hearth Companion, 7. Hildred the Maid, 8. Canute the Viking, 9. Runa the Wife, 10. Edmund the Aetheling
