The Roman fleet has been defeated and the threat of invasion removed.
Arthur Britannicus has taken the throne as Imperator – Emperor of Britain.
He is a symbol of hope, uniting the fractious tribes of Britain who have been oppressed and mistreated for so long.
However, as the threat from Rome retreats, the intimidation from Saxon warlords intensifies.
Arthur must draw his sword and muster his forces again if he is to keep his island under British rule.
While Arthur builds his cavalry and trains up his army, his old enemy, Maximian, Augustus of the West, plots his downfall. Seething over Arthur’s execution of his general, Constantius, Maximian will look to take Arthur's kingdom - and his life.
War again seems inevitable, unlike victory.
Arthur Imperator combines myth with historical fact to tell the compelling story of the rise of a legendary British Emperor.
For fans of Tim Severin, Robyn Young and Simon Scarrow.
