I will take up this gauntlet.

I have written the event steward.

As soon as I have information, I'll issue my challenge.

In the meantime, find a song/story/something about or from the time 
of Charlemagne.  After all, he's our three kings' Grandfather.

Yours in music

Elfsea Bard

A few sources,
Two songs of Roland here:  http://www.calonsong.org/songbook.html

Her Grace Willow has several stories from Charlemagne's reign, and 
I'm sure (please correct me if I'm wrong, Your Grace) she'd love to 
share a few.

And after a five minute search on Google,
Einhard's "Life of 
Charlemagne":  http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/basis/einhard.html
