Our Champion, Bragi, has come to us expressing a desire to join Basileus Basileios’ Court in the Byzantine Empire. He is one of our better Champions, but he is also a free man.
Mormaer Máel-Brigte MacGiric of Sutherland has taken exception to our Raid. It did not end well.
More positively (hopefully), we hold 2 of the 3 Counties which comprise the Duchy of the Northern Isles.
Things were going so well until the Kingdom of Alba, whom we were actually on good terms with, declared a Holy War for the County of Shetland. In happier news though, Astrid is with Child!
Our Concubine Linda was killed in defence of Shetland, which we subsequently lost.
Astrid gave birth to our Son and Heir, Dominic! The Dynasty is, somewhat, secure.
A Betrothal is quickly arranged with Þora Sigurdsdottir af Sigurdr, in the hope that the Kingdom of Alba will be dissuaded from further attack.
King Áed MacCináed of Alba offers the return of Gandalfr in exchange for 10 Gold, which we have no choice but to accept.
In more promising developments, our Concubine Malmfrið, is with Child!
There’s life in the old dog yet. Both our Wife, Astrid, and Concubine, Aleta, are also with child!
King Áed MacCináed of Alba offers the return of Ottarr in exchange for 10 Gold, which we have no choice but to accept.
And just like that, things take a turn for the worst…
