Edencomplex, about England trying to find an ally against Castille in the Peninsula during Middle Age:

But Aragon was more powerful than Castile, and Portugal often allied with Aragon whenever a chink appeared in Castile’s defences. So he was England’s only other option lmao. Only Aragon was older, and didn’t want some awkward teenage boy who couldn’t even grow a manbeard fail!wooing him so he was just like /IGNORE. But Portugal, alas, was a teenager himself, and things happen when teenagers are allowed to be in the same room with each other. /SHOT
