King Charles: The Prequel
Could this be our most respectful episode yet? Inspired by the crowning of Charles 3: Return of the King, the Loremen recap the entire King Chuck franchise. James recounts Charles I’s ghostly premonitions and the much more boring Charles II is briefly mentioned as well.
In devastating news, James discovers that he was mispronouncing the word “chrism” throughout the entire coronation. Like the history of Britain’s monarchy, the reality is much, much worse than you can imagine.
This episode also features respectful cameos from King Cnut, a serial killer turned mayor and little Jimmy Shakes himself.
The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
