In the Olden Time free pdf Excerpt from In the Olden Time The period of the Peasant War of 1524-5 in Germany is one of such unrelieved gloom, that it would not lend itself to the purposes of fiction, were it not that even then domestic life went on, endangered indeed, and greatly agitated, but persistent. It is the effect of this wild and troubled time on the fortunes of private individuals, rather than its historical side, which is presented in the following tale. One historical character, however, appears in it, drawn in a more favourable light than that in which he is usually shown. Ulrich of Wurtemberg has had the misfortune to be chiefly known to posterity through the writings of implacable enemies, who, while observing to the full the precept of 'Nothing extenuate, ' have set down a great deal in malice. Historians have accepted their statements only too readily, and only one here and there has noted that the later life of Duke Ulrich redeemed the offences of earlier years, and amply showed that he had learned the uses of adversity. Readers of old German chronicles will recognise the outline of the leper's story - the 'poor clerk who sat desolate, while all Germany sang his songs.' It should perhaps be added that the name of 'Rosilde' was hereditary in one or two ancient families, and seems early to have been accepted as meaning a rose, though derived from quite another source.
