THE SECOND SEASON SHOULD
continue the story where it left off last December when King Fernando (Jose Perez), poisoned by his horrid daughter Urraca (Alicia Sanz) died and,
instead of proclaiming his
oldest son as his sole heir, divided the kingdom to all of his three sons
Sancho (Francisco Ortiz), Alfonso (Jaime Olias) and
Illoro) making them the new kings of Castilla, León and Galicia. Devious
princess Urraca will continue to weave her dark plots in the
while our hero Ruy (who, played by rather weak and non charismatic Jaime
Lorente, did not even feel like the hero in the first season with not a
lot of screen time) will have to fight to save the land, the royal
family as well as
his own one. Disputes between them will transform the Iberian Peninsula into a field of bloody battles despite Queen Sancha's (Elia Galera) attempts to stop an inevitable war between her own children. Ruy is knighted and is forced
to make very difficult decisions, for which he will have to sacrifice what he loves most to become a true hero. Actress Amparo Alcaraz has joined the cast as Alberta, the Saxon noblewoman who contracts a marriage of convenience with Sancho.
