Undinė Radzevičiūtė’s latest novel The Blue Blood describes one of the most dangerous northern branches of the European families, which lived close by, beyond the border of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The Middle Ages of Europe depicted in the novel are already fading away, and the religious orders are dying out with them too. It is at that time that the eighteen-year-old Knight of Westphalia Bernhard von der Borch arrives in Livonia and before long becomes Commander of the Castle of Marienburg. He has, however, much higher aims and ambitions. Many highly intriguing details linking that family to the author herself are presented at the beginning of the novel.
