King Edward VII redecorated the interior of the Palace during his reign from 1901-10. The new white and gold decorative scheme can today be seen in a number of the State Rooms, including the Ballroom.
The smog and soot of industrial London had, over the years, darkened the mid-19th-century Caen stone façade of Buckingham Palace. This was particularly evident by 1911, when seen next to the gleaming new Victoria Memorial monument that now stood at the main gate. During the reign of King George V, the front of Buckingham Palace was refaced in harder-wearing Portland stone which was more in harmony with the colouring of the Memorial. Completed in 1914, this is the grand façade that overlooks the Mall today, featuring one of the most familiar sights: the famous balcony on which members of the Royal Family appear on special occasions.
Long before the Lazax, in the days of hallowed antiquity, legends and stories speak of the rule of the gene-sorcerers; the dreaded Mahact. Little is known about them save that their powers of cloning and genetic manipulation were nearly akin to magic, and that they divided the galaxy into many feudal holdings, each controlled by a Mahact family. The reign of the Mahact lasted for centuries, but it could not endure under the weight of their own decadence.
The dynasties of the Mahact kings were already crumbling under the weight of infighting and their debased technologies when the Lazax stepped onto the galactic stage. The Lazax armies crushed the remaining Mahact, slaying the last of their kings and purging their scourge from the civilized stars. Then, they built their reign on their legacy as liberators. They had saved the galaxy, and in return, its grateful citizens greeted their new masters with enthusiastic acclaim.
At the time, we didn't know Holy Fury would be the last expansion for Crusader Kings 2. In fact, I was forced to eat my own words, admitting that it gave me faith there were still interesting places this game could go. Speculation on future expansions was reignited in fan communities. Would we finally get to play as chivalrous Holy Orders Would Paradox be expanding gameplay for republics Could we be getting new historical start dates But even with the renewed vigor brought by Holy Fury, there were limitations of a foundation that had begun drying as far back as 2011 that the developers were eager to shake off.
At one point Bolade gets so frustrated with the local women that she invents 10th century Tindr, and starts going through portraits of foreign hotties like your uncle about to get scammed by a Ukrainian bride. It is as though lesbians have the power to psychically identify each other through oil paintings, across a distance of thousands of miles, which is only somewhat true. I leave her in her fifties, scarred but triumphant, martial of the third largest army in the world, exalted among men, avenger of giants, and gay as a window, as the star of House Oduduwa rises over the gulf of Guinea.
I don't believe you could play as an African ruler and come away with an understanding of what it was like there a thousand years ago. I also don't think that people should be grateful for any representation at all even if it's poor. But I think Crusader Kings 3 does a good job of representing, not just including, Africa as a place full of cooks, poets, drunks, warriors, masons, priests, inbred kings, and big gay cancer patients like anywhere else. I haven't found the specialised depth I was hoping for (and didn't really expect to), but nor do I feel like I'm just playing as England with African names. It makes West Africa as interesting to play in as anywhere else. The chiefs of Yorubaland have immensely improved my week. They're an excellent place to start out.

Jayavarman VII is voiced by Heng Sarorn. He speaks royal Khmer and refers to the player as \"Preah Ang,\" which can be translated as \"God-King.\" The Khmer only used their title to refer to their kings, and Jayavarman's use of it even when declaring war and defeated means he thinks of the player as his equal.
However, what we do know is that when King Jayavarman VII's reign began during a period of crisis for the Khmer. To the north, their control over distant vassal kingdoms was eroding away, while the Mongols (and later the Ming Dynasty) were expanding their trade interests throughout Southeast Asia (trade of raw materials being how the Khmer remained fabulously wealthy). To the South, revolution was brewing in Malyang. And looking east, the Empire was entering year 14 of their war with the Champa (occupants of what is now central Vietnam).
This is according to Champa inscriptions, by the way, which are not wholly clear on why these Cham forces would ally themselves with a foreigner. Or why, ten years after he took the throne, a Cham prince would help King Jayavarman seize the Champa capital of Vijaya and assist in the capture of King Indravarman
By 1181, with a little diplomacy (and some help from his Cham allies), Jayavarman VII had repelled the Cham invaders. Once hostilities died down, he crowned himself king. He would, of course, celebrate the start of his reign by establishing a new capital at Angkor Thom.
At this point, you would expect your newly minted monarch to begin his period of land-grabbing and expansion. And while King Jayavarman would keep up the conflict with Champa, going as far as to install a puppet king in 1190, his reign was notable for turning inward, beginning an unprecedented period of construction and infrastructure building.
King Jayavarman VII saw himself as a warrior for his subjects, and not just one who rode into battle to fight foreign foes (although he did a bit of that, too). In a break with previous Hindu-Khmer kings, which centered the throne in state affairs, King Jayavarman adopted a Buddhist mode of thinking, one which centered the population in the state.
Additionally, the nearly 40 years of his rule would also be marked for its tolerance; while endorsing Buddhism, King Jayavarman VII kept a role for Brahman priests within the palace, a role that continues today in Cambodian kingship.
We don't have many details about the final years of King Jayavarman VII's life, or even the year in which he died (but it was somewhere between 1215 and 1220). However, after his death, he would be given the name Mahaparamasaugata as a tribute to his greatness. As for the Khmer Empire It would fall into what looks like a precipitous decline. By 1222, the Cham were able to retake the land Jayavarman VII had conquered during his reign.
Still, it's hard to undo all of that temple-building and goodwill-spreading. King Jayavarman VII and his people-driven reign remains fondly remembered in Cambodia, where he figured prominently in state-produced education materials well into the 20th century. 1e1e36bf2d
