ok so heres an update,
i have decided to go with an irish father, some sort of noble, and a
german mother, with my land of birth being ireland in 1430. i will
have fleed from ireland to germany right around 1445 due to war and
the possibility of execution because of noble lineage.
my question is,
does anyone know any details on conflicts around this time?
i found something about an exodus in 1445 but no info as to why, and i
also found a blurb about Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland, and Earl of Ulster, and something about 600
armsmen around that time. but again there was no real detail.
i need to figure out a reason why a 15 year old irish noble would fear
execution at that time. that may also give me location on ireland to
i have decided to have my persona take on a german name upon entering
germany where i joined a local guard force for 9 years then was taken
on as an apprentice blacksmith and later a journeyman blacksmith and
housholder in a small village. so ill be looking for a german village
to be living in also, the date is 1459
any assistance would be helpfull
