More foreign words:

Polish:
ksiaze = prince
niesmiertelny = immortal
Zwierzat = animals

German
Ich bin hungrig = I am hungry

Again all of this is "to the best of my knowledge". If I got something wrong, please, tell me. Not telling me is the literary equivalent of letting me walk out of the bathroom with toilet paper stuck to me.

 Ich habe hunger.   = "I have hunger" is literal translation; but usage is = I am hungry.

For those of you who wonder or care, I have put this project on hold due to some issues with the plot. I may revisit it and revamp it sometime in the near future, but with everything that is going down in my life, right now, it is definitely not at the top of my priorities.

Did you work out your daddy issues? I'm really looking forward to the next part.

Unfortunately, this whole project kind of fell apart on me when I got into some of the research that was going to be necessary. That doesn't mean it's not happening, that just means it's going to suffer some serious amputations and cosmetic adjustments. When I finally sort out how I want the progress (without pissing in the face of actual historical events or having my main character run off with the plot like a pirate) I'll have to start it over again.

If I'm online, I'm probably drunk and in the middle of witchcraft.

This story did not turn out like I thought it would. But three whole fucking years later, I finished it. It's needs a lot of work still, a little bit of editing and some bloating, it's very much a skeleton story at the moment. But it's done.

And it's still a better love story than War and Peace by Dostoyevsky.

Congratulations on completing it!

(Agreed, War and Peace was a terrible love story.)
