THE BURGUNDIANS A Vanished Empire: A History of 1111 Years and One Day

by | Read by Nigel Patterson

History • 21.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Nigel Patterson brings elegance, precision, and a fine sense of pacing to a narrative that spans 11 centuries, and is so packed with events and memorable figures that the Hundred Years War and the life of Joan of Arc comprise only one episode. What a richly detailed, thoroughly engrossing narrative this is, spacious enough to include a half-hour description of a medieval feast, complete with instructions for eating with three fingers. The Duchy of Burgundy, now Belgium and the Netherlands, vanished completely in the fifteenth century amid treachery and dynastic struggle sufficient for half a dozen serials. All the color and pageantry of those bygone centuries are fully realized in a seamless union of author, translator, and narrator. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
