‘The Queen of the Sea’ By ROBERT D’EMILIO

Fifty years in the future, the effects of climate change and global warming have melted the ice caps and drowned most of the world. The valiant navy of the Venetian Republic patrol the Med-Adri as a checkpoint to the Northern States still above water. The Doge’s battleship, The Queen of the Sea, also protects the floating cities from the pirates that attempt to steal their limited bounty. The remaining nations and city-states of Europe have rejected the governments that ignored the warnings and put in their place the Dukes, Kings, and Princes that once ruled.
