I fought a particularly bad war--nothing that is crippling but I would hate to just give up the PU I spent a while fighting for. Is there any way to save it?
It has been thirty-three years since the advent of last Great Western War, twenty-seven since the victory of Germania over the Franks. The blood of the Svedes still wafts in the waves of Fornheimar, still soaks the fields from Agnafit to Upsalla -- and now, the Germans have called once more.
The messenger from Gdanzik arrived dripping in Steinaz, and within hours the Legates of all cities had received their summons -- within days, the Rettrthing had completed their vote.
Yngvi, hero of the last Great War, still held the title Stadtholder, with all the pride and dignity that he had bestowed upon it at its creation. And though he had aged, the Thing hesitated little, and General Powers were granted. Complete command over the fleets, armies, and Ministers of the Cities was granted, the Right to Levy called into force by the delegation of Gdanzik.
From Eysysla, from Agnafit, from Steinaz and Bornholm would the fleets be based, from Kulmaer, from Tolamal, from the Danish Realm would the armies march. With the Svedes content with peace and plenty in their northern holds, the Mittelsee would belong only to the Legation Fleet. As they sailed from port, their hearts filled with pride for their hold, many vessels drew up a peculiar flag: not one to communicate direction or intention, but a simple strip of red over blue -- blood on the water.
Stadtholder William II Oranje was leader of the Dutch Republic from 1647 until his death in 1650 from smallpox, what would have changed if he lived and survived a number of decades more? Was he considered an expert military leader like his uncle and father Maurice and Frederick Henry? Was he projected to be a great diplomatic or Economic leader?
Stadtholder Erik of House Kimbabwe has passed away. The cause of death is an unknown disease of some kind. His son, Jorge, has taken over the rule for the remainder of his late father's term. A funeral will be held in the Grand Senate Tower commemorating Erik and his rule. The allies of Nouvelle are invited to attend.
