An update on what is happening and why, in semi real time. Basically, I am homeless.
In this episode we look at the first two emperors of the Salina dynasty. What did these rulers of the German Roman Empire do that could have led to the disasters to come? Well, not much. Sorry. Spoilers?
Episode 84: The Ottonians
A quick but very inconvenient romp through the Ottonian dynasty from Henry I to Henry II. Confused as to why they are called the Ottonians? You will have to listen to understand! Also reappearing for special cameos: Adelheid! Spoleto! Andrew! Thousands of dead people!
Episode 83: The Becoming
We know it is good to be the king, but how does one becomes the king? Highlights include the revelation that no one has ever known how to placate angry old men at public gatherings.
Sometimes, I lie awake in bed at night, thinking about kings, wondering where they could be, who they are with, what they are thinking, are they thinking of me, and whether they'll ever return someday.
