Irishman who joined the scholarly community of Charlemagne’s court
Cf. Hibernicus ExulHibernicus Exul – Anonymous poet who refers to himself as an Irish ‘exile’ (Hibernicus exul) and composed a hexametrical poem on Charlemagne’s victory over Tassilo III, duke of Bavaria, in 787. The extent of his surviving work is unclear and his identity remains uncertain. Attempts have been made to identify him with Dungal of Saint-Denis (e.g. by Traube) or with Dicuil (Esposito).
