Description

George of Antioch, Admiral to Roger II, King of Sicily, contributes to the creation of the Sicilian-Norman kingdom in his tireless pursuit of Saracen troops and fleets throughout the Mediterranean. With the limited material resources of the 12th Century, but the courage and ferocity of the Norman and Viking troops, the Sicilian banners reach the coasts of North Africa, surviving the most testing maritime conditions. While the crusades ravage the Middle East and bring about a definitive rupture between Christians and Muslims, the kingdom of Sicily expands and there reigns a surprising tolerance between the two communities. The unexpected encounter with Eleanor of Aquitaine, who had been on a journey to wage war with her husband Louis VII, shed further light on the Court of Palermo and its surprising cultural mixture. Whilst the West succumbed to the social and cultural abyss of the dark ages, Sicily, under the guidance of George of Antioch, grew in stature and its brilliance shone throughout the Mediterranean region. Our hero pursues his initiatory path which leads him to Egypt and the Pyramid of Cheops.
