In 1095, the princes of the west answer the Pope’s call, take the cross, and travel to Jerusalem to liberate the Holy City from the hands of the infidels.
In 1147, the same call goes out again, and turns the might of Christendom against the Baltic shores where Europe’s last pagans thrive.
In the Iberian peninsula, Spanish lords resume their attempts to reconquer the lands the Moors have ruled since 711.
For more than two centuries, these unprecedented military expeditions will see kingdoms and cultures rise and fall. Great champions will lead their nations through heroic battles whose consiquences will be felt for decades.
