Russia would take the Dardanelles,

territory closest to her,

And the Italians would take the islands from the mainland.

- The French have a problem with anything.

That's their nature.

And big portions?

As soon as I gave them control

Syria and Lebanon was easier.

Let me read your mind.

Lebanon for the British Empire?

It's a hassle that you

And Syria could raise a bigger problem.

Sunni, Shiite, brass, Druze, Christians

, all jumping at each other's throats.

And in North Kurds...

Or let them

try to deal with them.

- And let them fail.

Bazra, Kuwait.

This area will be under our control.

And how delineate the boundaries?

- Will be organized later.

- No.

That's the time.

Now it should be.

Our problem begins here in the South.

Now it's just a red dotted line.

- We have a problem with Ibn Saud.

- Bastard.

In fact we have two problems.

First wants all Saudi

as a separate country for himself.

Bastard.

And secondly,

wants a flexible boundary.

One of his tribes in northern

go to pastures in summer.

There are meadows damned.

It's just sand.

And like a border...

depending on the movement of people, not territorial.

I'll go.

Tribes Who knows best?

Downline affiliates,

rivalries.

Who knows best

Bedouin tribes?

Who

a lead over all this?

Talking with potential future kings.

Who knows candidates?

Who knows best?

Woman, Gertrude.

Gertrude who?

- Gertrude Bell.

- Silly bitch.

It's a woman-man palavragioaica

confident and enthusiastic.

A wandering mind as a flea.

Gertrude.

12 YEARS EARLIER

- Gertrude, look at me.

- Mom, I do it.

- What?

- Do not tell me how to behave.

I'm afraid I could do it anyway.

- You smile.

- Yes mom.

Do not you scare your young men

intelligent.

How do I do this, can not I do

dumb.

Just... listen to what they have to say

smiles.

That will be hard.
