Chateau Ricordeau, France: July, 2089 AD is the fifth episode of Series 1.
Will awakes in the Chateau Ricordeau, having been restored to health by the family of the castle. Henry and Beanpole try to convince Will to leave the castle as soon as possible with them, but the people seem very hospitable. However, Duc de Sarlat gives the boys in to Black Guards, who are denied custody of them thanks to Count de Ricordeau who wishes to take things by his own rules.
Meanwhile Will finds himself growing very fond of Eloise, the daughter of the Ricordeau family. After saving her life at a lake, Will is offered marriage with Eloise and a royal status.
