The Hundred Years' War rages on, and the young Dauphin Charles upon becoming king is one of the most scrawny, disease-addled kings we've ever had. But with some strategic alliances, some tax reforms, and a bit of help from a random knight emerging from the woods, he just might be able to turn this ship around.
Listen to the end for "Pope Slap 2: Revenge of the Pope" (AKA the Western Schism).
And stay tuned for Part 2 of Charles V, in which we'll be giving Charles his score and going into more detail about his rule, with a special appearance from the great writer Christine de Pizan!
