It only took one small accident to change the course of history.
A sailor accidentally dropped a lit torch into the hold of his ship causing a fire that burned the core of the Byzantine navy. The armies of Islam entered the isolated city not long after. The year? 715--over 700 years before the Turks would do the same in our universe. The removal of Constantinople allowed a wave of Islam to enter Europe. Soon the continent was Islamic, a pillar upon which the new western empire, Roma Islamica, would be built.
Roma Islamica is a companion book for the alternate history podcast, the Twilight Histories. This book gives the backstory, the historical events and colourful characters that together make up this exotic alternate reality.
