  1. This is far too romanticised! Why has she not talked about what happened when Andronikos becomes emperor, i.e. he marries Anna of France? hence this whole “Andronikos eloped with her and then loved her all his life” is a lot of non-sense one can discover easily…

      She said that he loved her all HER life, not all HIS life.

      It really might be overly romanticized though. I think Robin and Katherine are just excited to see a medieval love marriage for once instead of yet another political marriage.

    This episode was wild, holy cow.
