Updated: Aug 25, 2018

As the Byzantines are assaulted on all sides, an uprising is prepared for a descendent of Tsar Samuil. Another head will be crowned, but can it remain?.



Below is a map of the uprising of Georgi Voyteh, Alp Arslan with his foot on the neck of Romanos IV, and the Battle of Manzikert.

The Excellent Youtube channel Kings and Generals has also made a video about the Battle of Manzikert.

Another great history channel, History Time, made an episode about a particular Norman centered around the period covered in this episode.
