Olga's Second Vengeance 945

Western Europe

  • July: During his campaign against the Normans in Normandy , who support the underage Duke Richard I , Ludwig IV , King of Western France , is captured by his opponents. These deliver him to his domestic political opponent Hugo the Great , who demands the surrender of Ludwig's royal seat of Laon as the price for the king's release , where Richard I is presumably held prisoner.


  • Abū Yazīd Machlad ibn Kaidād continues his revolt against the Fatimids in Ifrīqiya , but slowly loses popular support when he gives up his ascetic way of life. He has to give up the siege of Mahdia , the capital of Caliph al-Qa'im , in September after some Arab and Berber tribes have fallen away from him.
