The year is 1066.
Saint Foy's reliquary is one of the most visited shrines in the empire.
Wealthy pilgrims travelled far and wide. Foy would work miracles for some, but for others... strange curses.
Despite the threat, one jealous bishop could bare it no longer and dispatched his most trusted thief.
Discovered before he could escape, the thief was left with no choice but to kill.
As the thief returned north to his monastery, the relics became heavier with each step.
The dangerous relics fall into the hands of Duke William of Normandy (William the Conqueror) and he can't resist the opportunity to use them as a weapon in one of the greatest battles of the middle ages; the Battle of Hastings.
Is William in control, or is this Foy's conquest?
