    Queen Isabella - The Reconquista - Part 1

    The Reconquista continues into the life of Queen Isabella of Castile! 
    We begin with her early life. Isabella was born into a kingdom that was a far cry from its glory days. Improvished and on the brink of civil war, Castile had descended into a dark age under the weak rule of her older half brother, King Henry IV.

    WOTW - BONUS EP 3 - PART 3 - Komnenian Restoration and the Rise of Saladin

    The First Crusade was a spectacular success for the Christian armies. During this time the Byzantine Empire entered a golden age known as the Komnenian Restoration. However, with the fall of Edessa in 1144, the Islamic world begins to coalesce. Zengi and his son Nur ad Din create a powerful state. But despite their successes, they would be overshadowed by and even more powerful sultan - Saladin.
