You also refer to "the two husbands" - did you mean Eleanor and Frederick, or Luis and Frederick? If the latter, then the fact Luis has just tried to have him murdered would cast doubt on their being happy together. Do you mean Eleanor and Frederick?
Yes,Eleanor and Frederick, in Spanish a couple of two married persons is called esposos, I’m translating literally almost every word.

Frederick II Von Hohenstaufen, Roman Emperor and Duke of Aquitaine.
 
Chapter XIII The Wendish Crusades
Chapter XIII.

The Wendish Crusades.

"The Cross is now the guide of my people."
Niklot, Polabian Leader.


The attack on Lubeck by count Adolf ended in failure and the wends chased them out, after breaking an advancing German army the wends secured their position east of the Elba River.

In December of 1147 the Anglish, Danish and Swedish crusaders arrived and attacked the coast, advancing strong and conquering Pomerania after the siege of their capital in 1148, in which 12,367 persons died.

This move effectively encircled the Wends, losing terrain to count Adolf and other crusaders.

Niklot lost Lubeck and was expelled from most of Brandenburg, but his military genius stopped further advances.

Finally in the Battle of Wagria Niklot was defeated and 6,891 of his remaining men died, but he managed to cut Henri the Lion right arm and leg in a duel, after which the Anglish king came with his troops, including almost a thousand huscarls and Niklot decided to surrender, become Christian and Vassal of the Emperor, he handed western Mecklemburg to count Adolf, he retained northern and eastern Brandenburg, except the city that one day will become Berlin.

The Swedish King Håkan II wanted to retain Pomerania, but the pope didn’t allowed it, receiving rights to attack the Karelians instead.

Niklot achieved Wendish unity years later with a crusade as Casus Belli, the crusade lasted from 1156 to 1158, when he managed to capitulate the Lutici after razing to the ground their capital killing more than 5,000 persons.
 
¿What do you want to see now: What is happening in Scandinavia, some minor European affairs, the crusaders states, back to good ol’ Angland or you want to see something far away from the Christendom?
 
Chapter XIV The last Sunrise.
Chapter XIV.

The last Sunrise.

"Son, i trust in you to govern this land, our land, with justice."
The Sun King last words to his son Edgar.


After the crusade the king returned to his homeland and continued his reign, one of his first actions was to increase taxes to the cities and the nobles, something that triggered an small rebellion in Oxnaford after the local count, Edwin refused to comply with this.

This petty rebellion ended when the Prince Edgar entered the city with his huscarls and burned the gates and part of the city, the count fled the country and the prince assumed the control of Oxnaford.

The Princess Richeza of Poland died in 1150 after giving birth to a boy that died hours later.

Prince Edgar was devastated by this tragedy and had constant nightmares with his son and wife, but it wasn’t time for lamentations, he needed a new wife, but he also needed to heal his tormented spirit, so he departed to Holy Land, seeking peace.

During his trip he stayed in Syria waiting for the end of a sandstorm, where he met several important men, Edgar decided to marry Elizabeth of Syria, daughter of Duke Henry Plantagenet, the Prince was impressed by her beauty face and attractive body, they married in September 1152, the ceremony was celebrated in the Damascus Cathedral, after that he continued his trip and reached Jerusalem.

In July of the next year their first sons, twins, Harold and Leofwine, two blond precious boys, born without complications.

After a cholera outbreak in 1155 the king died of stress trying to reduce the impact on the country, Edgar assumed the throne at the age of 40, a new age awaits for Angland and Wales...

Chapter XV Their Whit Rōse
Chapter XV.

Their Whit Rōse.

"The Cholera outbreaks in Angland between 1155 and 1169 ravaged the nation, killing thousands of peasants and slaves, the nobility was decimated, the economy and commerce
collapsed, even the Godwinson family was, along their nations, at the brink of death , but a miracle saved our nation and monarchy."

Extract from the Rex Bellator Anglorum.


During all those hard years the king and the royal family prayed and worked hard to stop the situation without any kind of progress until 1168, when the outbreaks reduced their strength and finally stopped in the eleven of March the next year.

During the outbreaks the earls of Wessex and Northumbria and their families died, along most of the populace, making the entire regions improductive and throw in them in chaos after the complete collapse of the governmental structure, the only survivor in the Northumbrian branch of the Godwinson was Æthelthryth, daughter of Leofwine III, she became nun.

The death of most peasants and slaves provoked a immense rising in the salaries and the liberation of most slaves, causing bankruptcy and closure of several business, even the commerce with France and the Baltic nations was shut down, shrinking the royal coffers.

The origin and end of this outbreaks are unknown to this day, the Anglish of that time believed that they were been punished and only when they had calmed God with their prayers the disaster come to a end.

This was announced by the bishops and the royal family as truth, specially by the fact that three months before the end of this ravaging plague, the king prayed in the London Cathedral, after that Prince Harold fell ill and saw in a dream a field of white roses and Christ with His mother by the side, in a hill, under Their feet was a wyvern mortally wounded representing Angland.

In this vision it was revealed to Harold that God was angry with Angland because of the injustice of their rulers, the hipocresy and corruption of the clergy and the indifference of the King and the Witan towards the suffering of the people.

Modern historians attribute this phenomena to the traumatic experiences of the prince with the Bishop of Oxnaford and other bishops that tried to sexually abuse him and his brother, the king wanted to do something but the Archbishop made him thought that his death will provoke the Papal wrath and its consequences.

When the scandal saw the light the Pope excommunicated him and his squad of degenerates and the king ripped them in pieces so tiny that they could fit in a box.

This didn’t solved the other problems in the Anglish church; Sexual scandals, bribes, indifference, utter ignorance, nepotism and incorrect celebration of the Mass, all of that was solved after the last outbreak of Cholera and other diseases, when the pope named bishops with more morality and better formation, one of them was a Norman priest called Thomas Becket.

Independently of the veracity of the vision the royal family adopted the White Rose as part of their heraldic and personal tradition, building a sanctuary with religious images and a roses planted around, in 1170 when the third child of king Edgar was born she was named Rōse.

The royal family kept growing through the pass of time, in 1174 another couple of twins saw the world, Adolf and Mathilde, in 1176 the last child of the royal couple was birthed and she was named Eowyn.

Going to more material and political questions, the death of the earldorman of Wessex and the earldorman of Northumbria let the regions without any kind of control or order, fortunately the king was the dynastic successor to both titles, he kept Wessex for him and divided Northumbria in four earldorms: Northumbria, Yorkshire, Cumbria and Manchester.

Northumbria was given to Egbert Edwinson, founder of the house Northscheld, Cumbria to Girth of Carslile, Yorkshire to Harold Godwinson, heir to the Anglish throne and Lancashire to Adolf the Dwarf, commander of the Huscarls and friend of the king.

Glancing over the Channel, in mainland Europe the business were highly unusual, the southern half of France was patrimony of the Hohenstaufen emperor, the Sicilian Normans annexed Tunisia, the HRE was centralized and became an hereditary monarchy like France, Northern Italy was pacified after the creation of the Viceroyalty, Sardinia also became Hohenstaufen patrimony under King Richard, Swedish economy collapsed due its interdependence with Anglish one, the Baltic was a mess and Iberian wars against the taifas continued as usual.

King Edgar attracted Scandinavian colonizers to repopulate several areas of the nation, started the construction of several palaces and castles, centralized the power of the monarch and started the economical revival, Edgar have greats plans for the British Isles...

I think you mean Lancashire not Manchester ( Manchester being a city , Lancashire is the historic county which fits in with the other names)
