The rebels were so poor that their shoes were made of birch. The wealthier, better-established party derided the upstarts in state-sponsored propaganda, labeling them ‘birkebeiners’ after their birch bark shoes and gaiters. Yet what this rabble lacked in protective winter wear, they made up for in heart. Against all the odds, the Birkebeiner party would not only seize power but also snatch their king from the very jaws of death and lead the Kingdom of Norway to its golden age.

Mystery and intrigue are inherent to the Holy See. People will always wonder what religious authorities are conspiring to behind closed doors, what treasures lie within the vaults of the Vatican.
