A few words from the author Klaus-Jürgen Wrede about his novel:
My novel has a very special meaning for me - especially with regard to the game "CARCASSONNE".
Without this novel, the game would not even exist!
I researched the novel for a number of years, well before the game. So my research led me to southern France in the area around Carcassonne - on the trail of the Templars and Cathars. So this area and the city of Carcassonne is also partly the setting of the novel.
And it was on this trip that the idea for the game CARCASSONNE came to me!
After I had already written part of the novel, the novel stayed put for many years, because I was really taken by the teaching profession and the success of the game. So I couldn't finish it until much later, even though I had started long before the game.
But he was actually the reason for the creation of CARCASSONNE!
