King of the Romans: A Novel of Late Antiquity
by John Gorman

Category: Historical Fiction
Description: King of the Romans is satisfying as a historical novel and a tale of adventure, but it succeeds on other levels as well. We are shown unspeakable cruelty and corruption. We also are treated to deep friendship, love and courage, as Syagrius and his companions battle their own personal demons along with more prosaic enemies. Gorman does not provide easy answers or pat happy endings. Instead, he celebrates the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit."--Ilene Sirocca for The RunningRiver Reader

Prologue
Syagrius is a historical character, as are Aegidius, Aetius, Alaric, Clovis, Euric, Ragnahild, Riothamus (whom some scholars believe to be the basis for King Arthur), Sidonius and many others. As the last Roman ruler in the West, Syagrius became known as "King of the Romans," governing a domain including much of what is today Northern France between the rivers Somme (Samar) and Loire (Liger), with its capital at Noviodunum, modern Soissons. He held out there until 486 A.D., ten years after the official dissolution of the Roman Empire in the West, when he was defeated and crushed by Clovis.

The events and characters of Part Two are fictitious. The citizens of the Byzantine Empire did, however, refer to themselves as "Romans" long after the Eternal City had become a ruin.
