Jesse Eisenburg is the King of Bretonia, and the sole surviving member of the ancestoral royalty House of the Kingdom of Bretonia in the form of House Eisenburg. Jesse was the second youngest child of House Eisenburg and because of this he was extremely far off the inheritance but he would lose all of his siblings during the Fall of France of which the most painful was the death of his brother Maltivian who was a father figure for him but was killed at the Battle of Lyons only a year after being crowned the new King of Bretonia. Jesse Eisenburg is married to Lindsay Eisenburg and through her he has a large extended family through the Stones. Despite this he is deeply hurt by the loss of his entire family in such violent ways.
Jesse Eisenburg was born the second youngest of the six children of the ruling House Eisenburg and its King in the form of Tanlian Eisenburg, and he would be born only one year before the Orcs overran Hispania. As the Orcs overran the French border he was moved alongside his siblings to Viche where he would have been killed but on the route there his force was attacked by Orcs and he was forced to move farther north to Orleans where his brother Maltivian was located, and it was this change in plans which saved his life. Following the massacre of his family during the destruction of Viche he was moved north to Paris by his brother who realized that things were getting very bad, and Jesse would be needed alive before this was all over. The death of his older brother Maltivian Eisenburg and heir to the throne during the events of the War in France meant he was crowned king of Bretonia by the surviving nobles at the age of four, and he would become known for one of his first decisions which was that he ordered the withdrawl of all remaining Bretonians from France to either England, or to Brust. Jesse Eisenburg as a child king in England would become extremely controlled by the councillers at the court of Londinium which led to a lot of coruption spreading into the courts as peoples own greeds took control of themselves. Following his rise to Kingship at the age of sixteen he would be pulled along by his councillers most noteably in the form of two generals and a diplomat of whom led to him attacking the city of Caemlyn which started a war on the Kingdom of Gwent and then they also married him off to Lindsay of whom became the Queen of Bretonia.

Main Article : First Battle of Caemlyn
| The Fall of Caemlyn|
You betray everything we stand for if you abandon this city. Turn back now General Cewe and one day you will look back and wonder how your whole life fell apart. Turn back now and become an oath breaker.
The start of the First Battle of Caemlyn can be drawn to the point that the Bretonian envoy Brusant Geliante would be sent to Caelyn on the command of the King and his mission was to expand trade with the Kingdom of Gwent of whom was very open to this idea but during his time there he would fall in love or obsess over the daughter of one of the princesses of Gwent in the form of Catrin Bowen and this would lead to his moral collapse and eventually becoming very hateful towards the Welsh. The fact that she was no more then nine made his behavior quite uncomfortable and he begin to become the target of insults including being beaten by a stick by angry Welshmen who saw him attempting to sexually assault the princess. All of this was unknown to everyone the work of Cerys Bowen of whom was tired of the way she was treated by the King and the fact that her children were further down the line of succession due to her role as a concubine and seeing an opportunity to spark conflict and hopefully kill the king she would use alchemy to manipulate Brusant into an unhealthy affection for Catrin. It was finally the actions of the Bretonian diplomatic envoy Brusant Geliante that would spark the Bretonian aggression towards Caemlyn when following a meeting with the Welsh leadership of the city his attempts at gaining secret bribes were rejected and this angered him to the point that he would finally have his own entourage massacred and framed the Welsh to be the culprits. Following this act of agression he swayed the court of Londinium to his side upon returning and King Jessie Eisenburg himself would raise an army in complete secret and mobilize it towards Caemlyn.
The Welsh Counter
Selwyn Bowen is training in the yard of the fortress of Cardif preparing to leave for the city of Caemelyn where he will squire under his brother and learn from his father there as Caemelyn was the capital of the Welsh cultural lands. News reaches him at Cardif that Caemelyn has come under siege a few days before he is to leave and he joins with Berwyn Silures, Llyr Gangani, and Deiniol Demetae of whom were all his friends and major princes of Wales of whom together would raise a large force from Cardif and move towards Caemelyn. They travel by horse ahead of the main army but by the time they reach Caemlyn the city has clearly fallen as the Bretonians have set the city on fire and Selwyn is forced to have his friends deal with the heavy stream of Welsh travelling west down the road away from the city and what they are telling Selywn is a massacre in the city including the public execution of his father, mother, and brother.
Selwyn joins the commanders of the army in trying to regain control of the city but they are are forced to retreat as the Bretonians send out waves of refugees and with Bretonians all over the walls the Welsh are forced to meet with the Bretonians when they send out diplomats. Negotiations do not go well with Selywn basically forced to leave the meeting as the Welsh generals Gebon Cewe, Cadwallon Cadfanand, and Ydewel Medicus convince the others that they should pull back as they cannot defeat the walls of Caemlyn with their forces.
The chapter ends with Selwyn having one last look at Caemelyn before turning away and leading the refugees and army back to Cardif, but just as he turns he hears a women scream and sees his mother coming towards him and he hugs her realizing that she had somehow survived the massacre at Caemelyn.

When she arrived in the city she was suprised at how beautfil the city was but it was quite clear that the people were tense and the situation was growingly a problem. She spoke to a number of local leaders and over the course of a few weeks she was able to make the situation better through promices that certain supplies would be provided from the capital along with a troop force of some 15,000 men at arms. As she was preparing to leave the cities scouts came to be aware of a large Welish army west of the city. With the army simply rampaging about and destroying crops the Caemlyn force was forced to march out of the city and do battle. When they connected with the Welish the battle was rather easy, as the Welish appeared to have little interest in ambushing or doing anything sneaky.
Lindsay watched the Caemlyn force gain victory from the balcony of the cities palace and it was while watching this that she heard the first cries of the Welish elite forces that had silently infiltrated the city. The Welish were able to kill their way into the palace and once inside they took hold of Lindsay and were able to use Welish loyalists in the city to escape through the tunnel system beneath the city.
