Ekkehard II (10th Century), was the tutor of Hadwig of Swabia, and is the hero of this novel (originally published in 1856). This historical fiction of a love between Duchess Hadwig and the monk Ekkehard was held in high esteem in the empire of the "Grnderzeit" (1871 - 73), as it describes the first German Reich. It appealed to sentimental popular taste and made him one of the most widely read German authors of his time. Dr. Joseph Viktor von Scheffel (1826-1886), in addition to studying law in Heidelberg, was also known for his unforgettable student songs, some of which are still sung in the student bars late at night. After his years as a student in Heidelberg, Berlin and Munich, Scheffel did not take up the usual civil service career as a lawyer. He tried his hand as a painter and finally came to writing as a "wandering poet."
