The revolt that is tearing Sweden apart is starting to split apart, just like Engelbrekt‘s head. There are now two distinct groups, with the high nobility being led by Karl Knutsson Bonde, with Erik Puke taking up Engelbrekt’s cause of wanting lower taxes for the peasants. Forget about King Erik, the real dispute is internally within the rebellion! We also hear about the wonderful life journey of a man who went from young nobleman, to murderer, to fugitive, to pirate, back to being nobleman again, and then councillor and a lawman. Exhausting stuff!

We chronologically chart Swedish history in a light-hearted and conversational way. Each episode we continue the narrative and talk about the relevant period in question. Vikings included!
