Paris. Yes Paris : its Franks, cowardly emperors but feisty princesses. Paris, the River Seine sailed by long ships and its boiling oil set on fire (Viking kebabs?) Paris as Parisians had never seen though we knew the chronicles and had dreamt of its past. Paris just as we imagined it with its Romanesque churches, its maids'moving speech to the soldiers giving us an hint of Genovefa stalling Attila the Hun hope of conquests. Paris siege which ticks all the boxes of Abbo Chronicle of 886. HAPPY!
