Erik Puke is dead and with his death the peasant revolt he led dies down. The Swedish council meets in Strängnäs to try and solve the “peasant problem” once and for all, putting a number of restrictions on those they looked down on. But will this just mean that the nobility will start fighting amongst themselves about who gets to take advantage of the situation?
We then cover a brilliant Danish insult as King Erik gets into more trouble, this time with politicians from Sweden’s neighbour.
