The bagpipes of resistance – Crossover ep. with “The History of England”

In this very special crossover episode, we got the chance to host an episode on the podcast of one of our all-time heroes, David Crowther of “The History of England”.

In this episode we talk about operation “tombola”, the allied and partisan attack on a strategic Nazi position in a small town in Northern Italy.

117 – Eleonora of Arborea and the fall of Sardinia (1326 – 1410)

Repost: We first do a bit of catching up with Sardinia in the 14th century, which was marked by the continued attempt by the Aragonese to take over all of the island with only the Judicate of Arborea, initially an ally of the Spanish, surviving the conquest to become a symbol and rallying point for Sardinjian independence.

The most famous symbol of said independence was Eleonora of Arborea, who ruled from 1383 to 1403 and went down in history not only for her proud resistance to the Spanish, but also for her contribution to the Carta de Logu, the “Bill of rights” of the Sardinian people that was used for four centuries after her death.
