German novels

Hi, all! I would like to read some good historical novels auf Deutsch whose story sets in during the Middle Ages! Would you be so kind as to help me and mention some good titles (maybe links)? I would be so glad! Danke schön.

Projekt Gutenberg (http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/) has al lot of excellent old literature. They should be storys of the middle Ages too.

Maybe "Das Parfum" by Patrick Süsskind, it takes place in the 18th century in France

"Tod und Teufel" by Frank Schätzing. Interesting because it's set in medivial Cologne, where Schätzing lives today.Though Cologne is still one of Germany's biggest cities it was even more important back then due to the power of the Catholic church, which is still influentual but not as omnipotent as is was in the middle ages.

Look for books from the author Iny Lorentz. Behind that name is a couple from Munich. The books I know are from the middle ages to the 19th century. You can also look for books from Ricarda Jordan as Der Eid der Kreuzritterin and Die Pestärztin. In Der Eid der Kreuzritterin you will get to know the children crusade.
