Once, the Batavi were a peaceful Germanic tribe friendly to ancient Rome, but their alliance was broken as the Romans betrayed and enslaved them. One man, Militius, would not allow that though. He tricked his captors, killing his legate, Castricius and pushing the Romans to surrender. What no-one could have predicted, though, was that what happened would stretch far into the future as their descendants met in another, just as bloody war.
