I'm simply amazed at how long Matilda has managed to be a thorn in your side -- she's practically become a fixture in your AAR.  What will you do when she finally shuffles loose the mortal coil?

well done on the AAR so far.  CKII is really addictive.  I've started out as the Parma's but wasn't able to get them that far.  I started as head of the Duchy of Apulia next, and now I'm close to creating the Duchy of Sicily around 1241, just as the Mongols are knocking on Europe's door.  So far my Queen's appear to be the best rulers in the family (two of them so far).

Standing at the top of Caspian Hill overlooking Bari stands Benvenuto, dew has formed on his armour, his pennants fluttering in the breeze. Giovanni finally reaches him, his Lord looks blinkingly at him, his brow furrowed. ‘WTF, Giovanni, I mean just, WTF?’ Giovanni shrugs, ‘Shall we invade Sicily instead?’
Quote
‘A holy war you say?’ says the Lord Spiritual, ‘In that case, forget your mustachioed heroes of wherever, we can hire…………….. THE KNIGHTS TEMPLARRRRRRR!!!!’

Benvenuto right there invents the fist bump

Laugh.  Out.  Loud. 

This entry is going to have me chuckling all day...  ;D

Nope, no way...  don't go to the front page and read the new installment...  I mean, that would totally be breaking y'all's tradition of completely ignoring the fact that we have a front page!

Nicely done as ever, geek

I would've guessed that uniting Italy is the next step, except that I suspect you'll be having to prepare for a possible succession very soon...  :(
