Convinced that his future had been ordained by the stars, he employed as a personal astrologer a charlatan who was secretly in the pay of his worst enemies. He sought women, or perhaps it was the other way around, in much the same way that he sought martial glory. But he had an absolute genius for choosing the wrong ones.He married several large fortunes, yet dissipated them and died almost penniless. But he lived his life to the hilt -- in the pursuit of military spoils and the pleasures of the flesh. It is perhaps debatable at which he was the more adept.He was a soldier of fortune, one of the best. They called him the Duke of Chaos.
