Go! Go!

Move it!

- Go! Go! -Over there!


Don't come any closer.

I told you to stop.

I'm not a wild boar,

I'm Friederich von Hohenstaufen.

Your emperor.

You are Barbarossa?

Is that what they call me here?

Yes, and who are you?

I'm Alberto da Giussano.

Son of Giovanni, Milanese and blacksmith.

Well, blacksmith

take this dagger.

It will serve you when you become a man

There is the emperor.

He's here. He's over here.

We are here, your Majesty Milano.

I'm not sure this was such a good idea.

Hildegard of Bingen is a great seer.

They say she can even see through bodies.

And that when she was five years old

she described perfectly a calf

hat was still in its mother's womb.

They write their own music.

The calf was already dead...

n the cows womb.

Why this journey?

My sovereign and yours is here

0 seek your counsel.

Tomorrow he marries

or the second time and...

The wedding is blessed.

The virgin tree is not ripe yet...

but the roots are strong.

She will bear fruits...

Come closer,


who claim to be king among kings.

Is it written somewhere in my destiny

that I will reunite the empire.

Listen to my words.

Friederich of Swabia...

your name shall be remembered

or centuries.

But be aware,

Beware of water...

beware of the sickle...

the sickle brings defeat.

The water brings death.

Beware of water.

So here she is. The future empress.

I just hope that

he can make my cousin happier

than his previous wife

who was incapable of being loved

and even more incapable

of bearing him any children.

We all hope so

nd you must certainly know.

His majesty has now wished an heir

or too long.

I'm afraid he's going to have

0 wait a bit longer for that.

But he can console himself,

Beatrice brings

he whole of Bourgogne in dowry.

But she's just a child!.

didn't realize that she was so young

Well at least she will be able

0 bear children

Promising indeed,

he little French girl.

Apparently she can even read.

My father is going to kill me.

Hey guys. You're all wet.

What have you been up to?

I don't want to talk about it.

Where have you been?

Evandro was about to leave without you.

I'm...I'm sorry father.

- I'm sorry. -Come on Alberto.

Let's get going.

We must reach the river before dawn.

I'm sorry, Evandro.

Quickly, give me them.

Here, put them with the others.

The Lodigiani are still sleeping

just as well. Leave them snoring...

Do you hear anything?

Hurry up, give it here.

Well, well, well,

look at all these lovely goods.


What do you want from us?

We are not in Lodigian territory.

Now you are not.

But earlier tonight

ou crossed through it.

So you have to pay your due.

Oh God!

Quickly, get them.

You get that one, I'll take the other.

Go! Go!

Alberto! Go! Quick!

Does he know you love him?

What a question. Of course not.

Raniero da Giussano is too shy,

and a little bit stupid I think.

If he waits any longer with

ll those men buzzing around you.

Come here.

And you?

No one will ever want me.

But it's better this way.

I could only love a very special man.


Oh my God.

Oh dear.


The Milanese don't waste

single chance

to underline their superiority

over the other cities...

and this overbearing worries us,

our Majesty.

That's why we are here.

The city of Lodi

as always faithful to you.

It now asks its emperor for help.

The Milanese are getting too big

or their boots.

The time has come to remind them

just how sharp the emperor's sword is.

One order from you

and the army will be ready to move south

within two weeks, your Highness.
