Summary (From the publisher):

"...I have gone into Alwina's reign so much at length...because of its great romance and interest. A mere girl forces her way to a throne denied by tradition to a woman, frees her country from the oppressors, extends its flag to other lands for the first time in its history, unites with it permanently and successfully two reluctant allies, and by her inspiring beauty and gallant conduct and direct influence brings it into a golden age of letters. Certainly such a woman and queen deserves a large place in Islandian history."
-Jean Perrier, first French consul to Islandia.

First printed in the anthology Elsewhere (1981). Also appears in Tales Before Tolkien.
