The 'Conquests of Charlemagne', a fourteenth- or fifteenth-century Irish adaptation of a Latin original, was edited by the Society's President, Douglas Hyde, later to become the first President of Ireland, from the fifteenth-century vellum manuscript, the Book of Lismore. Writing of this text, Nessa Ní Shéaghdha described it as a 'refreshing and sensitive' translation, made with the aim of rendering the story concise and readable by omitting long-winded and tedious passages.
