Wrote up the end of the Anarchy, woo! Finally done with this – or I will be, once I add some pictures, edit it a bit and get it up here tomorrow.
Planned out the last of the Anarchy series – stalemate, Henry comes on the scene, one or two more battles and done. Classic stuff.
Another day, another instalment of Anarchy history. This time, the fortunes of war prove fickle, and two Queens fight for England’s crown. The Tide Of The Anarchy Turns, but to whom?
Today I wrote up the next Anarchy piece, covering the changing fortunes of war that eventually wind up putting everyone right back where they started. Funny old game.
Today I planned out the next section – I’d considered making it entirely about the Battle of Lincoln, but decided to stretch it to cover both the causes of the battle, and the aftermath, where it looked for a while like the entire war was over. I don’t know how much more Anarchy there is to write – this is a war that took three times as long a WW2, so it’s a lot to cover!
Today I wrote up the “first phase” of the Stephen-Matilda war – even finished on a cliffhanger. Tomorrow, editing, polish, pictures and it goes up here.
Planned out the next piece on the anarchy, which should start with some background on Matilda’s activities (including a minor digression about an Anti-Pope), before moving on to her landing in England and some siegecraft. Then a bloke called Nigel and a peace conference in the bath. Er, in Bath. Easy.
Today I wrote up the early reign of King Stephen of England. Things started off well for him, then they went a bit downhill. Tomorrow, pictures, basic edit and then I’ll put it up here.
