They had been in the lands bordering the Black Sea for weeks, but still Mirabella felt horrified, whenever she contemplated the full depth of the depraved conspiracy they had stumbled across.

Not merely Byzantine - but also Petchenegs, Kiev Rus and the Order of the Temple were part of the pirate ring. It had to be a lucrative business, Mirabella reflected, winnowing out parts of the steady stream of traffic of pilgrims and traders taking the eastern route... It might have been going on for years, if they had taken care not to take much more, than might be attributed to some natural catastrophes and mischance.

When Leon and Castile had set out from the Iberian Peninsula, they had anticipated having to deal with some Byzantine rabble - but they could never have imagined the reality they had found in the east. Though valiant, how were the Leonese and Qurtuban armies to deal with rot rooted so far and deep? The pope, Mirabella decided, the pope might at least have some influence on the Order of the Temple...

"Peasants - bearing pitchforks" - came a cry from a sentry. Quickly Mirabella reached for her sword and ran from her tent, letters forgotten.

Smelgar had been in a foul mood ever since he had had to inform the Empress that her shire had temporarily been lost.

Now the Roman army was poised to retake Karvuna, and his composure returned.

"Logothete, what news from the North?"

"Your Imperial Majesty, the enemy has divided her forces, and built camps in Transylvania, Moldavia and Odesskaja. It is not known where they will marshal."

Smelgar thought he saw the enemy's strategy: the best she could choose under the circumstances...

To confirm his suspicions, he consulted his field copy of the Strategikon and also the newly translated work that had arrived out of the East.

"Logothete, what is known of the nature of their arms?"

"Sir, the Qurtabans mostly deploy spears and a few sabres; most of the Leonese have spears, others have Varangian axes, flails, and there is even a battalion of women armed with stilettos. The reports of battles evince some use of bows and even a few slings."


Now learning the way of the Sword

The original plans for a quick foray to burn out Byzantine pirates was in shambles.

A frontal attack against the united forces of Byzantines, Templars, Petschenegs and Kiev Rus was clearly hopeless, even with the aid of the Qurtubans. Mirabella had been in a foul mood ever since this had become obvious.

Leaving the armies gathered against them behind them, the Leonese knights rode for the enclave of the Kiev Rus. Wood - wood appeared to be a favorite building material of the Rus. A choice they would come to regret. "Put it to the torch," Mirabella said coldly, surveying the village before her.
"But your Majesty - are we even at war with the Rus?"
"They are pirates in legue with the spawn we came to hunt - as they showed, when they burned our ships in Karvuna, without ever issuing a declaration of war. Burn it I say. Burn it, as our ships burned." As the torches were lit and carried towards the wooden houses huddled before them Mirabella felt for the first time in ages a small kernel of warm pleasure build inside her.

The Leonese and Qurtuban armies had harried the united might of the pirate loving Byzantines, Templars, Kiev Rus and Petschenegs - and been harried right back.

The Finns had helped cover their depature, as new ships were being built in Lettland - Mirabella resolved to send a messenger with a length of fine silk to Syrr Karosdottir in thanks.

Mirabella would have to content herself with doing what she could and started to write a proclamation to the Leonese citizenry:

QUOTE:
People of Leon,

let it be known to you that the crown places an embargo on all trade and travel to Byzantines, Templars, Kiev Rus and Petschenegs.

All civilian Leonese vessels are forbidden travel in the Black Sea.

Mirabella Lucinda Franca, Queen of Leon


It would have to do.

The wounds of the Leonese knights had healed. After spending nearly a year at home, Mirabella was beginning to feel restless. The weather this June in the year of the Lord 1096 was very fine and sunny - ideal for an expedition, Mirabella thought.

In fact she had always wanted to see, what had become of Alar, who had spent some years in Leonese service, before being stolen away by the queen of England. She just might go see, if that queen was worthy of keeping him, she thought, a smile tugging at her lips and if not kidnap him back.

"Call for Our admiral and the captains of the Leonese fleet - and call a meeting of the Leonese Council of war", she told a page, rubbing her hands gleefully, her spirits lifting at the thought of the beckoning adventure.

A fierce pain in the night. She could not breathe.

A moment of regret flashed through her for things left undone. Would it end like this - so suddenly?

A while later.

She felt her consciousness beginning to fade. And she reached acceptance. Those who came after her would have to carry on with the foundations she had laid.

As her body failed her she firmly turned her steps towards the light.
