Episode 31: Trouble With the Godwines

A civil war, before it was cool!

Another week, another episode... There aren't any battles, but lots of people die. I hope that sates your bloodlust

Important People:

  • King Edward - the focus of the episode
  • Queen Edith - Edward's spouse. A bit too loyal to her father...
  • Swein Godwinson - Godwine's eldest son. Very much a nuisance
  • Robert of Jumieges - A hated Norman Abbot, advisor to Edward and Archbishop of Canterbury
  • Earl Godwine - Your steriotypical overmighty vassal
  • Harold Godwineson - Godwine's more sensible son
  • Bishop Stigand Of Winceshter - Intermediary between the two opposing sons.
