Picture book for "The Historian"

Vampire travels across Europe

Emona – The Historian

with 5 comments

“I’ll call it Emona,its Roman name”. Page 7.

This is where the story starts and it is in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia that we begin.The city has the dragon as its symbol and it was in 50 BCE that the Romans built their first encampment. We won’t see the City again but it is in many ways a good place to start. Behind the old iron curtain and yet close to Italy, Germany and Austria.


“There’s the castle, my father said“.

This picture shows the view from the castle walls.

  1. Thanks for making this reading companion. It is very helpful and informative. It puts a fresh perspective to the novel, by being able to see the actual places.

    Having read the novel, weren’t you afraid of the consequences of following Vlad’s movement?

    • Hello Herbert,
      Thank you for your comment and kind words. Not really worried about following him…more worried about inadvertently meeting him. Do you remember how he was there in Venice…but no one could see him. Just watching and possibly waiting for the right moment.

  2. The word “there” is used correctly by Gillian but not by Herbert. It should be ” in 50 BCE that the Romans built their first encampment” their shows possession.

    • My mistake; I meant to say “Rick” not “Herbert”
