Multi-featured cool Ebook designed for study. Queen Hynde by James Hogg. A stirring account of adventure and romance set in the early Scotland of saints and swordsmen. A young Scottish queen must rule, and seek a husband, whilst in imminent peril from a sea-borne Viking attack.
The author claimed the tale to be true, handed down in story and song, and without doubt many characters are historically authentic.The remnants of Beregonium, first palace of the Scots and original home of the Stone of Destiny, still exist on a vitrified, rocky hill in Argyll.
Whatever the truth, standing on the mighty cliff of the 'Fort of the King' and gazing westwards over the magnificent bay it is easy to imagine that great deeds once chose this land as their stage. And that some beautiful, royal lady gave birth to a legend whose shadows cling here for ever.
