Duchy of madness
Duchy of madness
Once upon a time in Finland was a man named Erkki, he was the last surviving member of Juvaka family and leader of Savolaks.
He married a girl named Aili who gave birth to three healthy boy and a girl.
Nobody knew back then that these boys would become the key members of Juvaka bloodline, in their own special way.
Oldest of these brothers was Jorma.
Jorma was a very quiet boy when he was young not like his other brothers who were much more energetic.
When Jorma came to age of 18 he left Savolaks, went to Sweden and served in the grand army of sweden.
But he didn´t like it in Sweden and decided to move forward, first he went to Germany. There he met a beautyfull girl named Anna but few years after they were married Anna got ill and passed away.
Again Jorma moved this time it was England. There he started to learn the ways of catholic life and enjoyed himself.
Years passed and the old king died. His son became the new king of England and Jorma who had been his good friend for many years started working under him, as his marshal.
The king had a sister and very beautyfull sister that was and soon she and Jorma were married.
They had two healthy childs, boy and a girl. Boy was named Michael and the girl Etient, both raised as catholics.
Years passed and England fought many wars, Jorma served in all of them. King was pleased in Jormas work and decided to grant him the title of Duke, Duke of Lencester.
Jorma teaching his son
Jorma and his family moved to Lencester. He was a kind ruler, not like the king who killed his own people and was so cruel that some of his counts decided to pledge alliance to Jorma. King wasn´t pleased when he heard about this but he didn´t want to start a civil war.
Duke who ruled the Wales insulted Jorma many times and eventually was attacked. King was more than happy about this and went to help his long time friend. In few weeks enemy was defeated and Jormas duchy gained more land and more vassals.
Battle of Powys
Then it began the faitfull trip to Jerusalem, pope ordered an crusade and England was with the first who went to war. Jorma went there with all other rulers who served under England, not many of them got back, alive.
Crusade lasted for five long years and it were a total failure, King of England called all of his troops and marshal back to England. Jorma who was badly wounded in Jerusalem got back but was too tired to rule his duchy and appointed his son Michael as duke until he could rule by himself.
Ten years after first crusade to Jerusalem, Jorma passed away and Michael took his place.
Oldest of Juvaka brothers was dead but his bloodline would continue and bring glory to name of Juvaka or an total disaster.
This is were the real story starts, story called the duchy of madness.
