    A superb English translation by J.W Thomas of two pre courtly german epics contained in the Heldenbuch, both of which act as a kind of prequel to the legendary and so called historic Dietrich epics Ortnit tells the story of Ortnit and his dwarf father, Alberich and his wooing of a Valkyrie bride and death at the hands of a three headed dragon It is said by scholars to be a corruption of the mythical Hartung legends, known in Norse tradition as the Haddingjar Wolfdietrich is thought to contai A superb English translation by J.W Thomas of two pre courtly german epics contained in the Heldenbuch, both of which act as a kind of prequel to the legendary and so called historic Dietrich epics Ortnit tells the story of Ortnit and his dwarf father, Alberich and his wooing of a Valkyrie bride and death at the hands of a three headed dragon It is said by scholars to be a corruption of the mythical Hartung legends, known in Norse tradition as the Haddingjar Wolfdietrich is thought to contain the legendary tale of the Merovingian princes, Theodoric and Theodebert, the grandsons of Clovis, but in this legendary version both are know by the names of Hugdietrich and Wolfdietrich The romance tells of their adventures with dwarves, dragons, bride winning adventures and the quest to regain their kingdom For anyone who s read thepopular Nibelungenlied or Kudrunlied and is craving forof the same, this is an ideal read The book is also important for readers of the Old English poems Deor and Widsith, because if Malone s theories are correct on the Deodric that is mentioned in those poems, it is Theodoric the Frank and not Theodoric the Ostogoth that the Old English poets mention in Deor and Widsith

    There is some really great Germanic medieval epic literature out there that goes unnoticed Sure, many know of such works as The Song of the Nibelungs, but these two short epics deserve a wider audience I first came across these stories in Guerber s Myths and Legends of the Middle Ages, and fell in love with them right away That was many years ago This wonderful translation gives us the full account of two heroes from Germanic hero cycles Ortnit is the shorter of the two A great king of Lom There is some really great Germanic medieval epic literature out there that goes unnoticed Sure, many know of such works as The Song of the Nibelungs, but these two short epics deserve a wider audience I first came across these stories in Guerber s Myths and Legends of the Middle Ages, and fell in love with them right away That was many years ago This wonderful translation gives us the full account of two heroes from Germanic hero cycles Ortnit is the shorter of the two A great king of Lombardy wants a wife And none would do but the daughter of a far off king that will not part with her because he wants her for himself Eeeewwwww Not daunted, and with the help of a magical dwarf that also happens to be his father, Ortnit shows up with thousands of knights, and a war breaks out Many, many men die, much to the consternation of the love struck hero The slaughter is tragic and amusing at the same time, and it is all because the hero did not want to marry someone closer to home.Whereas Ortnit reminded me of the classic epic, Wolfdietrich hadof that enchanted romance feeling Wolfdietrich goes on many adventures after he is ousted from his rightful kingdom by his douchebag brothers He establishes himself as a slayer of giants and dragons and wins for himself a new kingdom and wife before seeking vengeance on his brothers.I could not put this book down, even though my eyes were tired, my book light s batteries were dying, and the fact that it was 2 00AM in the morning and I had to go to work the next day.This book did not have a downloadable version on Kindle, and I don t know how available it is my copy seemed to be a used copy from a library I m not sure it is even in print Maybe there is an online version, because if you love Medieval stories such as Beowulf, you must read these They may not be as perfect as thecommon epics and romances out there, and I had a few problems with them here and there, but what I did like outweighed everything else
