Can You Ken? XX

We have reached twenty kenning challenges, dear readers! And today’s kenning is…

Vladimir’s glad highway

What is Vladimir’s highway?

Well, my Northshield readers once again have a slight advantage here. The Vladimir spoken of here is our current king, Vladimir Radescu, though the kenning above is a reference to some court schtick that happened during his and Petranella Fitzallen of Westron’s first reign.

Their Majesties had just assumed the throne. And His Majesty started to describe that in Poland and Russia, winter season was war season. Because during the winter the rivers would freeze, and would form a road for transporting troops. And he asked for Northshield to arm itself for this coming winter, and make winter season war season.

And so, the highway of Vladimir is a kenning for a frozen river.
