La Prise de Pampelune

Nicola of Verona wrote the Prise de Pampelune as a sequel to the Entrée d’Espagne for his patron at the Este court, Niccolò, in 1343. The text, comprising some 6117 lines, continues picks up where the Entrée left off, after Charlemagne has returned from Roncevaux, and follows his campaign in Spain with the Pavian king Disiderius against the pagan king Malzerigi.
