    I think the meaning of the term was never really in question: A person who fills a function, who is in charge de facto, but not de jure; in that he rules/governs/administers in someone else's name.

    Hmmm where is Oran getting all of its wealth from... Well the beauty of the whole world mod is that there are lots or nice Diamond producing provinces, belonging to the Zulus, anyway you can guess how desperate I am to go after those.

    then I found out it the marker was even in the starting page where you can select your country.. in the save game and the historical start...

    okay maybe just starting then we'll see it's still there.. and it was.. then I tried to do it with another nation.. but also then the marker was there..

    I tried restarting the game and still it didn't disappear... but after restarting my comp. it finally did
    Yout think YOU'RE confused, you should see the looks on the faces of sailors going through there.

    It would be cool to be able to stamp the map, though. Like to stamp a big "L" over Paris or Wien or somewhere else that irritates you. Or to give you're allies a nice smily face over their capital.

    And the 168% trade efficiency for Portugal seems also quite impressive to me. Haven't seen it this high for any nation in my games so far. What level of trade technology do you need for this ?

    Thing is, Stadtholder is probably the old Dutch way of saying it. The way Dutch is spelled has drastically changed since the time of "stadtholders". In fact "old Dutch" looks more like German and we even used to have those German kinds of conjugations. (Some of them are still in use: Koninkrijk der Nederlanden, heer des huizes) So I wouldn't be surprised if Stadtholder was in use in the Netherlands even though it's now spelled as Stadhouder.

    I think the term was introduced via German and therefore it clearly means "stead". Because i just read a book about the Roman empire in german and and the people who administrate provinces for the Caesars are called "Statthalter". So there is no realtion to "Stadt"/City.
    So in german its clearly mean "the one who holds the land/titles/rights "in stead"/anstatt the real ruler.
    Problem solved.
    BTW the term could have come to Holland when there was the Wittelsbach branch Straubing-Holland. Surely there had to be a "Statthalter " in Holand when the ruler was in Straubing/Bavaria.

    In fact it is a term that also is in use in french and english. The military rank 'lieutenant' comes from the 'lieu tenant': literally the place keeper

    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia 'Lieutenant'
