What does the narrator say in the video around 1:26?
The emperor knew he had a long way to go to win the (obeysome sovers)subjects.
What does he say before "subjects"?
Thank you in advance.

Yes, the word is "obeisance". It's not a common word, but we can recognise it as a noun ("the ___-ance of"), and the root is the verb "obey". So, without needing to consult a dictionary, we still have a fairly clear idea of what "obeisance" means.

Obeisance (o-BAY-sense) means to have the utmost respect for someone. To pay 'obeisance' to the emperor is to respect and worship him greatly.
