Building on Faith's examples, for those who wish there were more books set during the time of Charlemagne and wanting a book about a powerful woman, I think Irene of Athens would make a good subject. I don't think much has been written about her in the historical fiction market.

I just finished "belt of Gold" by cecilia holland which revolved around Empress Irene. It was quite good showing how well Irene managed to hold onto power, which must have been considerably tough since she deposed, blinded and murdered her own son.

But shes definately an interesting subject
