Ha, ha! I don't but I know that koenig is 'king' and boe ka nier (phonetically) = bucc a neer and that des had to be the article 'the' like le or de. And if you wiki the king's buccaneer you get this ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King%27s_Buccaneer
Turns out the author is a native Angeleno and is Hispanic ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_E._Feist

I have not read it.

Clever guy! smile.gif A dutch folk artist (HELISIR) mentioned the book in her social media feed so I got curious smile.gif Good to know it's written by a local and been translated and found fans half way round the world. Here is the gal in question singing with kati Ran. Helisir is the one playing the BIG harp smile.gif
