Tellen Song
 

the education of Wilhelm Tell

Authored by Jeffrey Perren
Edition: First

1307 - The Legend Ends, the Story Begins...

Wilhelm Tell, hunter and builder in Üri, dares to disrespect the envious bailiff Gessler, appointed ruler of the southern forest cantons by King Albrecht of Germany. Sentenced to slavery until he completes building Gesslerburg, Tell escapes over the Alpine mountains to Lombardy.

But the political upheaval in his homeland is mirrored there. Drawn unwillingly into the squabbles between the Pope-supporting Guelphs and the Ghibellines, who side with the Emperor, he longs to rejoin his own independence movement.

A fugitive from Schwyz and a misfit in Milan, Tell finally sees his chance to return to lead his people. Will he forge a lasting freedom for himself, his family, and his countrymen? Or will his own brethren betray him, and themselves, at the crucial moment?

Harking back to the founding of the Swiss Confederacy, Tellen Song tells the story of its legendary founder - set among all the rich historical details of the 14th century.
