It's time for me to pass this on and i decided on a well-known master's (remember e.g. Theodoros?) masterpiece:
The Stuff of Kings by Farquharson
there are plenty of interesting characters in it, with my favourite:
not cowardly but shy king Arnulf von Hohenstaufen, the Parchment Cut Sufferer
The humor is excellent: read and enjoy it!
Farquharson's aar is also a work complete, so you may admire it in its full beauty and i hope this nomination will urge him to write more for us his avid readaars
