Background:

Spoiler:

In a poorly-lit tavern in Constantinople’s foreign district, there sat a gold-haired barbarian. With mug in hand, to the common room he told a story:

“Once upon a time in a village across the Rhine, there lived a king and he had a son. Now the son was young and foolish and he bullied everyone. Now there was this woman. Fair-skinned and narrow-waisted. She caught the eye of the young prince.”

“Suffice it to say that the prince was consumed by his lust for the woman and he followed her until he caught her alone in the riverbank. Unwilling to accept any refusal to his suit, the prince forced himself on the young woman and did there and then lay a dishonor upon the woman.”

“The woman unable to bear her misfortune hanged herself in her family’s barn. Her father who discovered the body, only survived a few moments before he too succumbed to the shock.”

“The village with much sadness buried them.”

“The story would have ended there were it for the fact that the father had a son and the sister had a brother. And he came home after many years of wandering to find that the last of his family have died so ignominiously.”

“The son’s inquiries led him to the prince. The son waited patiently for his chance and one day the prince rode out with a single bodyguard. The son ambushed them, killing the bodyguard and gelding the prince. The son told the prince: ‘Now you will learn to respect women, for you shall be one.’”

“The old king upon seeing his only son so mutilated saw his dreams of dynasty forever gone. With much wrath, the king called upon his warriors to hunt the man who did this to his son and laid a bounty of ten bars of gold for the head of the man.”

“But too late, the son, after exacting his own brand of justice, had already crossed the Rhine and escaped into the Empire. ”
