Check out a trailer about this upcoming edition:

Charles XII (“Carolus Rex”) was king of Sweden between 1697-1718, taking the throne at the tender age of 15. Despite his young age, he soon became a brilliant military tactician, thwarting invasions by several countries in the early years of his reign – most famously Russia, who the Swedish king defeated at the battle of Narva despite being heavily outnumbered. The Swedish Empire officially ended during Carolus’ reign, after he attempted to invade Russia but suffered a crushing defeat at the battle of Poltava in 1709. In 1718 he invaded Norway and laid siege to the fortress of Fredriksten, but was killed by a mysterious gunshot to the head when inspecting trenches one night. Historians are divided on how the king died, whether he was killed by the enemy or assassinated by his own ranks. Charles spent his whole life at war and never married or fathered children. He was succeeded to the throne by his sister.
