Description

This is an intricately researched and wonderfully written book about the life and times of Federico II, who became Holy Roman Emperor in the 13th century. The Middle Ages in Europe were a time of both turmoil and heroic deeds, and both are tied up in Frederick's story, which is told here with humour and warmth by an experienced Waldorf teacher. Many historians call Frederick II the 'first European' or the 'first modern ruler' because of the style of government he established. He was a serious patron of science and the arts, promoting literature and poetry during his rule.This book will bring the medieval period alive for children in Year 6 and up (age 12+).
