323 – AEthelred: Brotherhood of the Wolf


And we are back! Thank you all for being patient while the BHP went on a brief parental leave. 
And speaking of things that are back…
The Dowager Queen AElfthryth has returned to the King’s inner council following what looks like a political coup against AElfic of Hampshire and his faction.
And just because it was political doesn’t mean it was bloodless. All of AElfric’s allies were dead.  Only AElfric himself, who appears to have been too big to fail, remained as the sole surviving member of the faction.
