Seven hours later the governmental aerosphere has moored to a reception mast of a battle ship "Uadzhet" which still
drifted in fifteen germah from narbonnskogo coast. The huge floating fortress has started moving and has taken a place on
port spot-check, in two germah from coast, and only then has lowered the boat.
In ten o'clock in the morning (on the reference imperial time estimated from Memnona, was only eight) Sofia Justina has
driven in a palace of the duke.
It was not late.
* * * From memoirs of Sofia Justiny... That terrible day, last day that hot April, me not to forget till the end of a life.
But at first - about the events which have happened in my absence.
My fears have justified: prince Varg, without philosophising crafty, has ignored entreaty of the unfortunate father. The
answer to the duke began to inflate desperate attempts of the prince a mutiny flame. From lock Elsinor it sent the appeals to
all ends of Narbonnsky Gallia. His hand skilled demagogues drove. It is no wonder that in the very first days to Elsinoru any
crowd was pulled, dreaming to do some fighting: the knights-idealists, the become impoverished peasants, the city poor,

collect no more than five hundred knights and two thousand infantrymen. Observing such turn of events, the majority of
barons have returned to the duke or kept a neutrality; with the prince there were only inveterate rebels of Hrimnir, Elred and
Unfortunately for us, the prince had two, costing thousand knights chained in the reservation everyone. I had to refuse
