Path to the Kings

The Path to the Kings of Europe all start in the same place, Rushville, Illinois. It starts with Wilma Mae Bartlett and leads to a fork in the road at Henry Plantagenet. From there you can go to Kings England, France, and Scotland, as well as, the Emporers of the Holy Roman Empire and Empress of Germany.

Some of the people you will meet include the Rice family. They came to America after the year 1634 to settle in Massachusetts. It also includes John "Lackland" Plantagenet. As you will remember from the story of Robin Hood, he was not the hero. You will also meet King Philippe Auguste II of France, who won a victory over King John "Lackland" Plantagenet that left Philippe as the most powerful monarch in all of Europe. William "The Conqueror" radically altered the course of English history and Charlemange, who had vaste holdings as the Emporer of the Holy Roman Empire. Wander the Path to the Kings and discover the many people of our shared past.
