While recuperating in England, he grew close to King Jesse Eisenburg and before he knew it three years had passed and he was falling in love with a new women. He planned to leave but his new lady in Annett Barnaby became pregnant and then gave birth to a child that he named Lucie Lovie II. With this birth he gave himself completely to his new home in England, and decided to accept that he would never return to his old home in Lucerne, and in this manner he took control of his wifes family military forces of whom were in disaray due to the failings of the patriarch in the form of George Barnaby. Marcel Lovie would become further influencial when he gained the ear of the king during the Fall of Camelyn where he convinsed the king to send away the Queen of the Welsh which Jesse Eisenburg listened too leading to a somewhat diplomatic end to the massacre that followed the battle of Cameleyn. Marcel Lovie would join a Bretonia force sent into Wales to take control of the Welsh fortress of Fadog, and his leadership would lead to the fortress falling without need of a siege, as he used diplomacy to turn the chiefs of the fortress to their side.

It was during this time that the two spent their days discussing the ways they would change the Kingdom once they came to power.
All of this grandious thoughts, and hopes begin to collapse when the destruction of Hispania occured and with that came the encroaching horde of Orcs towards France.

Fall of Caemlyn
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.
