Count Julian; Or, the Last Days of the Goth
William Gilmore Simms
Count Julian; Or, the Last Days of the Goth provides one of the most intriguing textual histories of any of the author's numerous works. Conceived as a sequel to Simms's novel Pelayo, Count Julian continues Simms's fictional treatment of Medieval Spain, dramatizing the legendary betrayal of Julian, Count of Cueta, an act that helped lead to the Muslim conquest of Iberia.
