2. Rurik (Vikings VS Slavs, 861 and 862 AD): The story of Rurik and the events in Rus’, when he took over Ladoga, and later also Novogorod. Considered the beginning of the Rurik Dynasty, which ruled over the Grand Duchy of Moscow for centuries to come.




Anglo-Saxons from the Kingdom of Britain:

1. Edward the Confessor (Brits VS Brits, 1051 AD): The story of a conflict between king Edward and Godwin of Kent – the most powerful British Earl of the time. The campaign begins when Godwin first opposes the king‘s will, and ends when he is exiled after losing the battle of Gloucester.
