History
This differs from Roger’s real life due to the events that cause Mauger’s rise to power, see this

After his father’s death in 1101, the throne had been assumed by Roger’s brother, Simon de Hauteville, with his mother acting as regent until he came of age. However, the true heir, Roger’s half brother, Mauger de Hauteville, returned to Sicily to claim this title and the throne. Adelaide fled with the young Roger so that they could survive, hopefully meaning they could return to Sicily when the time was right.
While his half brother sat on the throne he grew up, studying religion and politics and waiting for Mauger to make a mistake.

Now, due to Mauger’s inefficient reign and handling of the kidnapping of his sisters, there is enough support for Roger’s return to one of the largest Empires ever seen, given to him by God.​
