Brief Synopsis: Known historically as “The Bad King”, King John causes a wave of upheaval throughout England and France when he bucks the normal rules of succession and seizes the monarchy for himself as opposed to his young nephew. This combined with his other questionable ruling tactics puts him at odds with France, the Vatican, and his own countrymen. Wars break out, deceptions are devised, and the two countries are thrust into mayhem. All this is observed and commented on by one of John’s only loyal supporters, The Bastard.
