At the flickering dawn of the Middle Ages a Jewish Kingdom emerged in southern France, ruled by Jewish kings for 150 years. This is the virtually unkwn tale of the first of these Jewish kings, whose astounding accomplishments and intellectual brilliance led him to be fervently hailed by his subjects, for very good reason, as the long-awaited Messiah. He was, impossible though it might seem, uncle to Charlemagne himself; consequently, his blood-line was intermingled with that of the Carolingian kings of France. He fought alongside Charlemagne, expanding his realm manifold, to the fury of the Pope, who regarded the existence of any Jewish kingdom in Europe to be an abomination. This epic vel, unearthed from medieval tomes in Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, French, and German, holds the reader from first page to last, as the king, step by step, fulfills each of the prophecies for the coming of the Messiah despite every obstacle hurled in his path.
