In this talk I will prove that given a quadratic extension K of the rational numbers and a prime p, there exist infinitely many Galois extension F/K of degree p such that F/Q is also Galois with dihedral Galois group of order 2p. Moreover, F can be chosen such that arbitrarily many primes ramify in F/K. I will only assume familiarity with Galois theory and some basic theory of number fields (in particular ramification of primes) on the level of a standard undergraduate course. We will use class field theory for the construction but I will state all the results we need.
