Thirteen essays from leading Irish and international scholars on kingship and its archaeological, literary, historical and onomastic expressions from late prehistory to the Middle Ages. Emphasis is placed on kingship in Ireland, but particular focus is on how the Indo-European phenomenon of sacral kingship finds expression, and how aspects of this tradition endure into the Middle Ages.
