Constantinople was the richest city in Eastern Europe, and everyone wanted it. However, with its three thick walls of stone, it seemed impossible to conquer, until the Turks got very clever. Explore the awesome Ottoman empire, hear the tragedy of the three Ivans (one of whom went mad), and look out for spies and secret police on black horses. But then tragedy strikes and the world is forever changed by the black plague. And yet the adventures continue as Joan of Arc experiences her heavenly vision and leads, at only 17 years of age, armies of strong French soldiers against England, and princes start to disappear as they wait for their chance to become king. Danger and excitement abound!
