Following a successful rebellion against King Conrad I of Germany, Alamannia becomes Swabia when the Alemannic Hunfriding family, in the person of Burchard II, establishes the Duchy of Swabia, with a territory that covers modern day Alsace in France, southern Baden-Württemberg and western Bavaria in Germany, western Austria, Lichtenstein, and northern Switzerland.

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.
