The Prussians are pretty hardcore and all, but I really doubt that the guards would hold a groin-kicking contest to see who had to clean up dead nobleman.The guards, confused to their next move, rochambeaued over who had to fetch the body.

"Kill a thousand men, and they will hate you. Kill a million men, and they will queue to face you. But kill a single man, and they will see monsters and devils in every shadow. Kill a dozen men, and they will scream and wail in the night." -Zso Sahaal
Rochambeau as in "rock paper scissors", but I wanted to avoid the word "scissors" so I used the other word. Aside: I also understand that rps was a product of the XIX century, but there you go.
I think a fitting place for Dzintis in the royal mausoleum(?) would be next to Eadbert. If only he had kept his head he would have made his forefather proud. Anyways, it's a welcome change to have a bloodthirsty despot on the throne after all these noble rulers.
Bad news is that Karnak and his son are both "noble kings".
Okay news is that both go on wars so there is something to read.
Good news is that after those two, we get to Vishly who is more like Vlad the Impaler then just out-right crazy.
Vishly.... Martial and Intrigue 20+, all "cruel" traits. Now that would be a king!
Vlad the Impaler + Ivan the Terrible in one will be just what the world needs.

--==THE GRAND CALIPH==--
The Grand Caliph grew during the Infinite War it stretched, at its max, from Lisbon to Belgrade, east to west; and from Stockholm to Carthage, north to south. Though it lost a few territories to Prussia and to nations leaving the union, it remains the dominant force in European politics. Until the 1350's it was a single, united nation. Until 1364 it was mostly ruled by Sunni Muslims, but following the division of Western Sunnis (Europeans) and Eastern Sunnis (Arabs) it was ruled mostly by conservative Muslims. In a few regions shiites existed, but in general France, Italy and Spain were almost entirely Muslim. Germany, however, remained mostly Christian in the north, and was a major place for rebellions and instability.
In 1352 the Caliph died without heir, and his massive duties were split between his seven sons. Since then the Caliph decentralized, turning into a patch work of more than 100 countries, with 50 major ones.
The seven sons would elect an Caliph from amongst the rulers of the different fiefs. The major player, though, in affairs was Aragon, formerly Toledo. The Emir of Toledo moved his capital from the middle of Iberia to the coastal city of Barcelona. He was elected the first Caliph and would rule the Caliph for almost four decades.

When that comes out, I am so playing Carthage. If it is synced with HTTH, maybe one could engineer a way to reunite the Caliphate!
I'd just turn Carthage a certain French culture (Occitan; it was dominant in France at the beginning of the game, and better suits a Mediterranean culture) and in game I'd try and go Shiite, avenge Hannibal and take Italy. That and colonize parts of the New World.
Orthodox England FTW! And then Aragon reuniting the Grand Caliphate FTW! And then being uber with Prussia FTW!
This will rock.
And who are the Electors of the Holy Iberian Caliphate ? which nations do they rule ?

Hmm... a nice Holy Western Caliphate forming.
Carthage starts off as Carthago which is also related to the Arles culture, those two cultures make up the French/Arab mixed people. They are also wahhabi, though one switch and yes, they'll be shiite.
For reference, I've gone crazy with the cultures... there are a whole bunch of new ones.
6 - Arles would of probably been no. 11 historically

The concept for the AAR is great but wouldn't they technically be the Prusso-Saxons?

Regarding Anglo-Baltic vs Prusso-Saxon: it is all semantics, really. The best way of thinking of it is that the Anglo-Saxons won, so Anglo gets to go first. Generally, I believe that certain phrases (Anglo and Franco come to mind) get to always go first, or it could be alphabetical.
If only Charlamagne could see the Western Caliphate...
