Kingship and Politics in the Late Ninth Century: Charles the Fat and the End of the Carolingian Empire

By Simon Maclean | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I have incurred many debts in the completion of this book, only a few of which can be acknowledged here. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from some excellent teachers. In the first place I must thank Jinty Nelson, who supervised the PhD thesis of which this book is a revised version. Her encouragement and generosity with ideas and criticisms have improved both versions immeasurably. I have also learned much from Stuart Airlie, who not only inspired my interest in Carolingian history in the first place and suggested Charles the Fat as a suitable subject for research, but also commented helpfully on parts of my work. I am grateful to Rosamond McKitterick for acting so efficiently as my editor and making many valuable criticisms and corrections. Several other people were kind enough to read all or part of the original thesis, and forced me to think harder about my interpretations: in particular I should like to record my gratitude to my PhD examiners, Paul Fouracre and the late Tim Reuter, as well as to David Ganz, Matthew Innes, Paul Kershaw and Geoff West for their generous help. Naturally, I take full responsibility for the multitude of errors which doubtless remains. I have also benefited from conversations with many friends and colleagues: in particular, I am grateful to Guy Halsall and Alan Thacker for help and encouragement. Financially, I am fortunate to have been supported by two bodies without which my postgraduate study would have been impossible: the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (from which I held a Major Scottish Studentship) and the Institute of Historical Research (which granted me a Scouloudi Fellowship). Thanks are also due to the fellows of Trinity Hall in Cambridge, who elected me to a Research Fellowship which allowed me to begin writing this book. More recently, I am grateful to my colleagues in the Department of Mediaeval History in the University of St Andrews for making it possible for me to finish it. The staff of Cambridge University Press have been extremely helpful, especially Bill Davies. The cover picture for the book was supplied by Bildarchiv Foto Marburg. I am also indebted to my friends for moral support and keeping me sane, in particular Anne Jenkins, John Kyle,
