Excerpt from Popular Studies in Mythology, Romance and Folklore, Vol. 1: Celtic and Mediaeval Romance
The 1vatiere de France is, as all know, concerned with Charlemagne and his paladins, as also with the wars and feuds of the great noble families in the days of Charlemagne and his successors. It has little to say about the world-important achieve ments of the great Frank-his reconstruction of the Western Empire, his destruction of the last organised heathendom among the South Germans. On the other hand, the Matiere de France is filled and dominated by two elements which form much of the staple of mediaeval history – the struggle of Christendom against Mohammedanism, the struggle of the feudal baron against his overlord.
