1450 - 1453 : conclusion
It was now time to administrate peace in France and England. My first decision, now that the Kingdoms' economy was stable, was to leave the Hanseatic Trade League and then create a new Center of Trade in London.
In september 1451, I gained the opportunity to conquer Orléans. The opportunity doubled when Savoie decided to protect them !
In July 1452, Orléans, Savoie and Dauphiné were mine.
In 1453, King Henry VI began to see his end as he fell territbly ill. Within weeks, his health degredated until his death in May of this year.
His rule will always be remembered. In his 27 years as ruler of England, he assured the victory against both the Bourguignon and Valois Houses. He vassalises Scotland. He unified the two Kingdoms. he launched the last crusade and liberated the Eastern Roman Empire and protected it against Catholic ennemies, and at last he brought peace in France and England.
Edward IV Lancaster now represent the future of France and England
With his death in 1453 also arrived the end of an era. The Hundred years war was finished, and Europe was about to enter in the Renaissance.
In the south, Portugal was establishing trade ports on Africa's coast and the European crowns were dreaming about the far east, India, China.
Some were begining to wonder... Would it be possible to find an other road to India ? What could we discover if we decided to explore the Western ocean ? Rumors are saying that hundreds of years ago, the Scandinavians discovered a road in the cold north to a new land, the Vinland.
What is this land in the far west on this Scandinavian map ?

Now is definitly the time to think about the future. Lots of people here asked me to continued a second part, so I'll do it. For now, this AAR is finished, I will soon start a new one to continue this scenario from something I think I never saw in an other AAR (or only in a "world conquest" AAR) : the world history with England and France unified !
That's all folks !
This concludes this AAR
I hope you enjoyed it
