06 - The Edinburgh Disgrace
1. After the French Revolution, Napoleon became Emperor and gained control of much of Europe. Having won control of the seas after the Battle of Trafalgar, he set shore on Britain and advanced upon London with a 120,000-strong army. The Queen on the throne, Elizabeth III, was forced to flee to Edinburgh; there she was captured by the pro-Napoleon militia and pressured to announce the abolishment of the monarchy. The year was 1807 a.t.b., and the incident is now known as "The Edinburgh Disgrace".
2. The person who saved her and sent her to the new continent (America) was Ricardo Van Britannia I, the man who later became the 1st Emperor of Britannia. However, all this would not have been possible without Sir Richard Hector, the Knight of One. For generations the Britannia Dukes (Ricardo's family) have selected from their subordinates elite Knights to form the Knight of Rounds, and the title of Knight of One is awarded only to the best of them. Ricardo's friend, subordinate and the strongest Knight of his time, Sir Richard would later be featured in a number of plays, novels and movies.
