A translation into modern English of the version of Merovingian history produced for the 13th-century Capetians by Primat, working primarily with Aimon's early 11th-century Latin. It should increase the material available for a study of medieval narrative techniques, since the Merovingian portion of "Les Grandes Chroniques" often reads as well as most fiction, offering a peculiar combination of myth, folk-tale, panegyric, fact, and political argument. In addition, this material, in conjunction with Gregory of Tours' "History of the Franks", may serve as a vivid introduction to medieval historiography.
