    New listener here, good stuff. I’m starting at the beginning while playing CK2 as Strategos Leon Pegonites of Cyprus, great combo. Keep it going. 🙂

      Episodes like this show how good a simplified simulation CK2 is… Constantine VII reforms sound a lot like the holding system and military burden on them from the game.
