    AAR : The Anhalt Empire - Tech and Trade, maybe Warfare



    The Anhalt Empire


    " After all these years, Anhalt was just a Feudal Monarchy, a province of the Holy Roman Empire. My father was a great ruller, a let to me a good wealth province, but too small. Now is the time for expand our country. Let us rule the world by the trade and warfare. Its time to conquer our place in history. "

    Leopold I Maximilian - The Emperor of Anhalt

    The king Leopold I Maximilian has rise to the throne after the dead of his father in 7 May of 1468 after more then 20 years of his father, Georg I, rule.



    ---------------------------------------------

    Some historical tips.

    In 30 March of 1453, The Anhalt Empire was established.

    At the same day, the emperor former up the Firma des Handels (Company of Trade). These company will take care of the trades made by the crown.

    In 3rd April of 1453, the Iluminatis was born, a council of cientist, that was formed to improve the technological device for the crown.

    At the army field, the ruler think thats was a good idea maintain a thousand man army, that was called, Die Unsterblich ( The Immortals ), just for the guard of the empire.

    ---------------------------------------------

    The first step of Gerog I after established the new form of govern, was to move the empire more closely to the Free Trade ideology. That was the first thought for create more mercants.

    Building up the relations with the neighbours, after agree with too many marriage proposal, we turn Brunswick to vassal. Seeking the future domaing of Anhalt, our eyes has going upon Brunswick for a future anexxation.



    After that, we turn our trade eyes upon the Lubeck. As the trade center of our realm, many countries have seeling his goods at there after many years. So, the plan was, Domain the market in Lubeck with 5 mercants. In 4 September of 1953, the first mercant reach the core of the city in Lubeck and begain to trade.



    -----------------------------------

    As i coment, after build up my realtion with the neighboars, the objetive was to enter to the Holy Roman Empire as a vote country. After a few years of diplomacy, Austria invite us to join the votant country. And for my surprise, a few years of that happen, i became the Emperor, almost because the good relations with the other countries. I receive 4 votes and became the ruler of the Holy Roman Empire

    Since the create of the Firma des Handels, the effords of the king to rule the trade was huge. After years triyng to be the greateast nation on trade, a few considerations muts be made.



    - As the core province of the Empire, Anhalt rise very low income. An anexxation of the core province of Brunswick (Hannover), must be done in a hurry, for more profit.

    - We need invest in mercants. As our profit are low, we dont have many chances to send mercants to the trade centers anytime, we need plan. One we have that problem, out trading company make a few arrangements. Rise the profit income and forget for a while the techs invesments. That must be donne carefully, cause the inflation rises a lot with thses kind of action.

    After a few years of preparations, the Firma des Handels was ready for the attack. Sending coornates "attacks" to the trade centers in Lubeck, Venezia and Liguria, we reach after 20 years, the rule of the Lubeck center and a good position in to Venezia and Liguria.



    ( I developed a few strategies to overrun the competitors and rule the trade centers, soon i'll make the Rules of the Trade, hehe )

    After the annexation of Hannover ( Brunswick ), the tensions over my contry have exploded. The small nations over the european map had disappear. Now i'm one of the only small nations over the map that still free.

    After a series of problem involving trade income at the trade routes over the europe, a alliande between my country and the neightbours are almost impossible.

    Maybe its time to reinforce the army to avoid a war against my powrfull neighbours, because that will crush my economy, very badly, since the inflation is already high.

    you are a minnow in an ocean of hungry sharks ! !

    armocore: After a series of problems involving trade income at the trade routes over Europe, an alliance between my country and the neighbors are almost impossible.

    but, would an alliance really do you any good ? ? it seems to me that your neighbors would just drag you into a war that would only hurt you.

    excellent updates ! !

    i'm really sorrounded by sharks, but, still survive.

    an alliance could be a greater good since, at least, i will not enter in a war with a neightbor, hehe.

    As a trade nation, a war could ruin everything, but in the ohter hand, could bring lands and profit to the Empire.

    Back to the trail.


    After the annexation of Hannover by the king Leopold I Maximilian, his eyes try to find another country
    that could became his new vassal. With a little research, nothing came to his eyes, and
    with the war that came to his neighbour, he decide to increase his army, to make a few
    conquers.

    " Maybe its time to make a mark in our enemies and grant a few lands from them." - Leopold I Maximilian.

    A war now, can crash the trade that the Anhat has all over the europe. His popularity with the electors countries for the Holy Roman Emperor could fall and his sucessor, maybe don't recieve the title.

    " And if we make a quick war against a weak enemy ?" - Leopold I Maximilian.

    Should the army of the Empire grab some lands ?

    " My lord, our army is weak and we cannot match our neighbors !" - Army Advisor.

    " I see. We need stregnth them." - Leopold I Maximilian.

    " But spending money with an army, the trade will fall !" - Trade Advisor.

    " Damm !" - Leopold I Maximilian.

    What should we do now ?

    Yeah, Anhalt doesn't usually last very long in my games! It's kind of a plaything between Brandenburg, Saxony, Hesse, Thuringia, etc.

    I wish you the very best! I'll look forward to watching. Holy Roman Emperor status can't hurt!

    I especially like the way you have quoted your rulers, that's a first. Never seen that before.

    However ponder your moves 2-3 times ahead. Get yourself a big buddy and during war pick up the pieces.
