Why were the Bulgars so successful compared to their larger neighbour? We look at this question and the limitations of the Byzantine army on campaign as Nicephorus leads his men to their doom.

Best episode since Irene (mom of the year) had her son blinded. Betrayal and disaster is always so much fun. “The right path” indeed 🙂
Excellent episode, this one shows that the high and ever increasing quality of the show. Nicephorus certainly tried but completely failed.
Another great episode,Robin! Just one thing though,please make up your mind as to what you are calling the empire’s people. You are calling them Byzantines in one minute and Romans the next. I understand they have been called both, but modern historians tell us the proper term is Romans as the people themselves never called themselves Byzantines. In a great show like this, let’s call these people what they really were, not what later westerners called them.
