The narrative returns as we head back to 1204 and the sack of Constantinople. The arrival of the Latins had actually splintered the Roman world into at least 13 different states. With a little help from the 2008 film 'Vantage Point' we will be following the different perspectives of these actors as they deal with the fallout from the sack. We begin with the story of Alexios V Doukas who fled the city just before it fell. Period: 1204 Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information ..read more
