So that Rikard was a Rokari crusader is not an established fact?

Has it? Heroquest Voices has an Esvulari section which you do not quote:

         Heortland's king has long owed fealty to other rulers.  Once, it was
         the Only Old One, then the so-called "God-King" but his union
         of nations broke apart when the Pharaoh was killed.  Heortland's
         royal line ended in 1617 when the King died without an heir.  A bloody
         -handed foreign mercenary called Rikard seized the throne.  We
         spilled no tears when he was deposed by the invading forces of the
         Empire.  They placed Bandal Tigerbane on the throne, but real power
         rests with the Imperial emissaries from the north.

Nary a mention of dealing with Broyan who has long been opposed to the Esvulari themselves.
