January 1, 1492
The beginning of a new year in the reign of Albrecht the Fourth and my first year in his service. I recently spent time in the Venetian Army but the Venetian King disbanded me after my losses against the Turks. Albrecht, who had watched my military ability closely, was quick to hire me.
When Albrecht hired me, he only told me to make Bavaria powerful by whatever means I saw fit.
My first move was to join an alliance with the Austrians. Relations were at an all-time low but Austrian allowed us to join their alliance with Bohemia.
Within a month, Hungary and Lorraine have joined the alliance. I also arranged a marriage between Bavaria and our northern neighbors, Thuringen.
I raised the necessary gold to promote tax collectors in both Munchen and Nurnburg. Now I will sit and wait for Austria to go to war. Then I will make my move.
