Kings Richard and Phillip lead an all-star cast in the final installment of the Crusades trilogy. The East brings in a new villain, worthy of our Christian heroes, in the form of the dread general Saladin. Who will win in this clash of Titans? Spoiler: everyone loses.

Our Christian soldiers sally forth into the Holy Land yet again, and a Muslim general rallies his people to defend against the European interlopers. Who will win? The answer may surprise you.

Actual historical information is in sight, so we rush through the rest of the 300s, where there are a lot of Samnites, and like all other generic Italian tribes, they don’t win against Rome.

Well, we’re back into boring nothingness happening for a stretch of time. Lots of fighting with interchangeable Italian tribes, arguments over patrician and plebeian laws, we’re getting there, folks.

What’s this, things happen? Why yes, thanks to the newly discovered ability to “skip the boring parts,” we finally arrive at a moment of great importance: the sack of Rome by the Gauls, an event that would leave such a scar on the Roman psyche that Julius Caesar would use it as justification to conquer the region three hundred and fifty years later.

The period that will never end continues. Only 200 more years before we get to actual history. Meanwhile, here are military tribunes, replacements for consuls that definitely were real and certainly weren’t Livy making things up.

And now we come to the tale of Appius Claudius, and how he was the Platonic Form of asshole.

Note: We’re incorrect near the end of the episode when we say that the laws passed at this time allowed intermarriage between Plebeians and Patricians. That actually happens late. Nostra Culpae.

Finally, we get to someone you might have heard of, the dictator Cincinnatus. But first we go through yet more wars and agrarian law conflict.

And now we cover a decade’s worth of Livy probably making a lot of stuff up. We first run into agrarian laws, the bogeymen of Roman politics that became major points of contention during the late republic. And we fight wars, a lot of wars, against pretty much the same three people.
