Chapter III: New horizons, part II
One month after their recent defeat, the unhappy groups of Avarian society started revolution in quest for better future.
Interesting events form political life of Europe didn't stopped to Avarian revolution. Several days later, the tribe of Moors lost control over several provinces ruled by local nobles with Roman blood. The consequences were the independence of Rome...maybe we could reffer to this Rome as Rome in exile, while the holy city of Rome was under legal and justice control of Byzantine Empire.
However the end of the season of good news came to the end with the death of Khan Asparuh - the founder and leader of Bulgarian branch, west of Dneper River. However nobles ensured the security and safety of the young Khan, with regency.
In the Winter a messenger from Slavic tribe of Devliani came into the camp of our main general, letting him know, that in case of new war, started by Bulgaria Devliani will attack. Hyenas never attack strong animals, they wait for some weak moment. Bulgarian khanate was in regency, but still had its teeth.
In the summer of 698 AD Bulgarian domination over the sea of Azov was sealed with the last defection of Azovian province. The population of Azovian coast gradually switch from Khazarian to our side, something which the Bulgarian court accepted with joy.
However the world has its own balance and when you gain some skills you gain as consequences some disadvantages. Bigger state means more manpower, more soldiers, more taxes and bigger treasury....however the bigger ship is harder for navigation.
An year has passed, and we were still consuming provinces from the Khazarian Khaganate, formerly strong power, now dying state. The situation for their "brothers" on the West wasn't much better. the revolution came to each of their provinces, towns and villages. Brothers were fighting among each others and the foreign enemies just took advantage of the situation.
The noble factions continue its politic for remaining in power by huge gifts to the young khan.
However their efforts might go in vain as the young khan is very ill.
However the trained Medicus didn't heal the young khan and he eventually died. However this event wasn't just a family drama, the young Khan Tervel was the last descent from the mystical Dulo house. So the powerful house of Dulo ended peacefully placing the bases of new powerful state.
