Count Radbot of Klettgau builds Habsburg castle near the village of the same name, then part of the Swabian county of Klettgau, now a municipality in the district of Brugg, in the Swiss canton of Aargau. His grandson Otto II takes the name von Habsburg from the castle, thus establishing what was to become one of the most powerful dynasties in European history. (Year is approximate - actual date is somewhere between 1020 - 1030).

Alamanicus is wandering his old Alemanni haunts, revisiting the places where once he used to drink, carouse, and beat up the odd Roman legionnaire or two. Things have moved on since his day, and the old Alemanni country now lies across south west Germany, French Alsace, and northern Switzerland. Cut through by the mighty Rhine, it is an area of great beauty, and a lot has happened there since Alamanicus last walked this land.
