An incident between French soldiers and a Sicilian wedding party would lead to a massive revolt on the island of Sicily. Known as the War of the Sicilian Vespers, this struggle would determine dominance in the Mediterranean Sea. In this issue we tell the story of the war on land and sea, and the rivalry between Peter of Aragon and Charles of Anjou.
