We’re back in the late 1380s after our two recap episodes. We pick up the story of Scandinavia after the death of the last of the Bjälbo dynasty, King Olof of Norway and Denmark. But fear not, his mother Margarete is ready to step up and take the reins. We’ll see how she enforces her will on both Denmark and Norway, with the help of her allies in the Danish court. We then rewind and focus on her time as regent for her son in the previous decade and a half, and examine her on-off relationship with local pirates!
