The battle for France is almost over but the Plantagenets do not know it. They cling to the hope that by throwing more and more men at a lost cause they will regain the land lost. Sir Michael of Weedon knows that is not true and is tired of the waste.

It is there that Fate catches up with him. He is summoned by Queen Catherine, King Henry’s widow and she entrusts him with her most valuable treasure and makes him, the Queen’s Knight.
