In the 11th century, the Czechs have proved themselves mighty warriors, as well as a cohesive, self-aware nation. The neighbouring German Roman Empire lost its ruling dynasty and two families are vying for the throne. With political tensions and demand for military power rising on all sides the Czech princes see an opportunity for their own advancement.

Meanwhile the social landscape in the Czech lands begins to shift and change, as the administrators become nobility and new settlers populate areas that were previously vacant.

Join us on the tumultuous journey through 12th century court intrigues, political machinations and domestic developments that will once again earn Czechs the royal crown.
