Introduction

Signore Lorenz Greylever

Persona

Lorenz Greylever is an English born gentleman during the reign of Edward IV (York), starting in 1472 AD. His mother, Jacqueline Danielle Greylever was English, born to English and French parents, while his father, "supposedly" named Lorenz, was a Venetian sailor that dealt in Spices who lavishly doted upon his mother, against the will of her Protestant parents.

Triplets were born from that union, Gustav, Timothy and Lorenz. It was a tumultuous time in the Greylever household, the scandal sent their mother into seclusion where she turned to her book and deeper into drink.

Lorenz Greylever grew up during a very busy time in the history of England. The time of the Wars of the Roses, as it has been called, was a series of civil wars between two competing dynasties, the House of York and the Lancastrian Family. The wars ended in 1485 when Henry Tudor won the battle of Bosworth over Richard III and gained the throne of England. Henry Tudor was crowned Henry VII on 30 October 1485 beginning a new dynasty. Then, in January 1486 he married Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV, uniting the dynasties of York and Lancaster.

However the Yorkists were unwilling to accept the situation. In 1487 they attempted a rebellion. They claimed that a man named Lambert Simnel was Earl of Warwick and tried to put him on the throne. The Yorkists gathered an army in Ireland and landed in Cumbria. At that time Lorenz, the boy of 15 years, was sent from the modest livelihood he was accustomed to at the Library in the town of Guildford near London and began his travels of the world.

While Lorenz was travelling outside of England, the Yorkists were crushed at the battle of Stoke on 16 June 1487. Simnel was captured. Henry VII could have executed him but instead he made Simnel a menial servant in the royal kitchens.

Henry VII invaded France in 1492 but the French were preoccupied elsewhere and they quickly made peace. By a treaty of November 1492 they agreed to pay the English money and the French king agreed not to support any pretenders to the English throne.

Unlike his brothers, Lorenz enjoyed his studies and yearned to learn more of the world. Gustav was the warrior of the family, and joined the English Navy, while Timothy found himself on the other side of the law more often than not. Lorenz visited Italy, and learned a bit about his wayward father's life, though he never saw him while he was there.

Lorenz heard of his brother Gustav's exploits, being part of the navy battles between the English, the Spanish and the French.
