    abstract = {We discuss on how related stories can be compared by their characters. We investigate character graphs, or social networks, in order to measure evolution of character importance over time. To illustrate this, we chose the Siegfried-Sigurd myth that may come from a Merovingian king named Sigiberthus. The Nibelungenlied, the V{\"o}lsunga saga and the History of the Franks are the three resources used.},



  • Decem libros historium (DLH) by Gregory of Tours
