In the three decades since Morgan Llyweyln wrote the bestselling novel Lion of Ireland, she has studied the legendary life of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland. Often dismissed as a mythical figure, as all the known facts about him are contained within the several Irish annals. But thirty years of research have led Llyweyln to conclude with certainty that Brian Boru actually lived, a great battle took place in 1014: and Ireland won.  

Read about the life of Brian Boru and the battle that changed the course of Irish history in this exciting and accessible account.

Historian and novelist Morgan Llywelyn was born in New York City though moved to Ireland in 1985. Morgan is the author of A Pocket History of Irish Rebels and The Vikings in Ireland, an exploration of what actually happened when the Norsemen landed in Ireland.
