Announcement: Court will be moving to Winchester following 14 November 1158.

After the untimely death of the King's brother, it is even more imperative that King Eustace secure his dynasty. With his only heir dead, and the hope of the Blesevins now resting on an unborn child, their cause is more vulnerable than ever. Will the King stand up to the challenge, or will the Angevins seize the initiative to take back England once more.

Join the action soon! We are currently planning on opening up the exiled Angevin court. We are carefully putting together canon list covering Angevin-controlled and contested territory in France. France proper, and the court of Louis VII will remain under 'fog of war'.

As the Anglo-Scottish War draws to an end in October 1158, both courts meet to celebrate the signing of a treaty. A feast is held on 9 October 1158, though both courts will likely remain for a limited time afterwards. Join the group thread, or feel free to start your own!

No New Posts Winchester
The former Anglo-Saxon capital of England, and the seat of the legendary King Alfred the Great, Winchester used to be a major political and cultural centre for the English, with it's prestigious cathedral, royal palace, mint, and centres of learning - as well as other innovations, such as the Lockburn drain to wash waste far away from the city.

No New Posts London
London is by far the largest city in the British Isles. One of the first acts of William the Conqueror, upon being crowned after his victory at Hastings - was to grant a charter guaranteeing the many rights and privileges the city had enjoyed under Saxon rules. It is an economic powerhouse, a thriving centre of trade and industry. It is a major military stronghold, defended - or perhaps dominated - by immense Norman castles: the Tower of London. Baynard's Castle. Montfichet's Tower.

There is no unified Kingdom of Scotland to speak of; anymore than a distinct, unified Scottish people. The realm to the north of England is a patchwork of different cultures, ethnicities and langua

ges; to many of the Highland clans the "King" is a distant figure whose authority means little at best; in the myriad islands around the west and northern coasts they know no King at all, instead acknowledging the power of the Lord of the Isles, or even the King of far-off Norway. Language is not much more of a unifying factor either; Gaelic is spoken by a majority of the people, but depending where you are you may find yourself conversing in Cumbric, Norwegian or even English... or in the royal court, French.

Wales is a turbulent place in the 12th century. A collection of squabbling Kingdoms, principalities and Norman, Marcher lands, Wales is a tumultuous landscape where everybody must fight for their place, titles and right to survive.

No New Posts Aquitaine
Situated in the warm, southwest regions of France, Aquitaine stretches from just south of the Loire River Valley to the Pyrenees. The people are often characterized as pleasure-seekers with fiery tempers, but Aquitaine is known as a center of art and troubadour culture across the world. It briefly merged with France when it's Duchess, Eleanor, married King Louis VII, and she is now using it to back her husband's claim to the throne of England.

Major towns include: Poitiers, Bordeaux, Angoulême, and the port of La Rochelle

No New Posts Brittany
Populated by a very proud, stubborn people, Brittany is caught between its ancient, Celtic origins and the growing Norman-French influence in the West. After many years of weak rulers and succession crises, the Bretons believed they had a strong ruler in Conan IV, but as he has spent most of his short reign in England, they are left open to invasion by Angevin forces.

Major towns include: Rennes, Nantes, and Vannes

At present, France is a concept rather than a country. From his throne in Paris, King Louis VII of the House of Capet does not rule over a Kingdom, so much as a loose patchwork of autonomous duchies and counties which owe him only a nominal homage as their liege lord. By rights the great nobles of France are his vassals, sworn to serve him, but in truth the majority are Kings in their own domains, doing as they please, passing their own laws and pursuing their own agendas.

Once the seat of largest Empire the world has yet seen, Italy has fallen far since the Dark Ages. Where there was once unity, now there lies an impenetrable patchwork of feuding and constantly shifting city-states, principalities and republics, forever vying for political and economic supremacy.
