Brian Boru, King of Ireland
Explores the life and times of this remarkable man -- known primarily as the man who drove the Danes from Ireland and who died at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014 -- and attempts to distill reality from myth. An able administrator and patron of the church and of learning, many feel he came closer than any Irishman before or since, to uniting Ireland.
