    Indeed, it is a lot of rebels. It's a bit scary when a rebellion encompasses half your country.

    Oh and why so humorous? I want to know!

    They were two of the main characters in my most recent string of updates is all. Gave me a chuckle, since I believe Transylvania and Hungary share quite a few names in common in the game files.

    Ohhhh...you're right. I didn't even think about that. I was thinking that it was a full name so I looked it up, haha. We do share quite a few names though.

    It seems like the forum is starting to be a bit more stable now. For the last couple days, as many of you probably know, it has been down quite a bit. The next update will be up by tomorrow. Sorry for the wait, but it'll be worth it, I promise.

    The State of the World in 1422


    By 1422, the Kingdom of Hungary had grown becoming the most powerful nation in Eastern Europe. The Magyar Rebellion in 1422 would bring about changes to the kingdom. Yet, even with all the gains and tribulations in Hungary, the world was changing itself.



    The known world in 1422 (1)



    England

    The Hundred Years War was in a lull by 1422. English hegemony was established on all of Ireland by 1415. Yet, France was proving to be far more difficult to subdue. With the death of King Henry IV in the Battle of Picardie while on campaign in France, England had lost its best general in the war.


    Henry IV in the Battle of Picardie before his death


    Henry’s son Edward would be crowned King of England in 1419 and would be known as King Edward IV Lancaster. The inception of King Edward revitalized England’s assault on France. Edward IV would later be known as “The Conqueror” for he conquered all of Brittany as well as won key battles against France in 1420 and 1421. However, even with Brittany under English control and a score of victories against the French, the war was still in a stalemate. Because of the draw in France, Edward concentrated on Scotland and declared war in 1421. In only eight months, Scotland was either pacified by the English or in the process of pacification. Soon after, peace would be signed in Edinburg on September of 1421, which officially proclaimed England sole owner of all of Scottish domains except the capitol and its surrounding lands. The crushing defeat would cripple Scotland and exalt Edward for his success in nearly unifying the islands. (2)


    France

    By the beginning of 1422, France had been able to repulse the English from taking important strongholds in the north. They won a crucial victory at the Battle of Picardie in 1419, which stopped the English advance on Paris and robbed England of its king and best commander. Yet, France was still a fragmented state with small but powerful vassals unwilling to relinquish control of its lands to the French crown. The Kingdom of Burgundy continued to be a thorn on the France’s side as it frequently sided with England in diplomacy. France has the people and the economy to become a dominant state in Western Europe, but the kingdom needs to unify to ever stand a chance against England and the rest of Europe.


    Castille

    Castille has had a rocky beginning in the early 15th century. The Spanish power won an overwhelming victory against Granada in 1403, which saw Castille capturing most of the Muslim lands under its state except the capitol, itself. However, since the momentous gains by King Enrique III, Castille has fallen into trouble with rebellion and an alliance of Portugal and Aragon. The War for Iberian Dominance in 1411 spelled defeat for Castille as it fought both the Portuguese and the Aragonese. The war that lasted nearly four years was a devastating loss for the Castillians as it lost land to both of its neighbors in the peace settlement. The death of Enrique III in 1413 brought about the induction of his daughter, Isabel I to become Queen of Castille. Many powerful nobles in Castille did not appreciate the crown transferring to the late king’s eldest daughter instead of his brother. A power struggle would erupt in the country as nobles sided with either Don Carlos, the brother of Enrique or Isabel. The struggle would last through most of the decade until Isabel’s forces routed and crushed Carlos’s army in the Battle of Seville in 1420.


    The Battle of Seville would solidify Isabel's claim to the Castillian throne


    Don Carlos would be captured by the Royalist and subsequently imprisoned and later executed for treason in 1421. With Isabel’s throne secure, Castille eyes its return to dominance on the peninsula against its neighbors Portugal and Aragon.


    Aragon

    King Joan II di Arago of Aragon has seen much success against Castille in the past decade since rising to the throne in 1409. His acquistions in Castille has had a price, however for his Mediterranean holdings. Aragon had extensive holdings in the Mediterranean, but King Joan realized that its Mediterranean power was fading fast due to the likes of Venice, Naples and the Ottoman Empire. Half of Sicily had revolted from Aragon and rebels are besieging the other half still in Aragon’s possession. Aragon is powerless in defending its Mediterranean possessions because of continental obligations against Castille and France. Aragon’s time as a maritime power is fading fast.


    Portugal

    Portugal under its king, Joao I de Avis has seen prosperity and victory. Its victorious war against Castille proved to be a boon to Portuguese merchants in Andalucia and beyond. Portugal, considered more of a naval power proved that it had sufficient backbone to fight on land as well. Even with all its success, Portugal is still the smallest of the three kingdoms in Iberia. Its only consolidation to its size is its wealth, for it is also the richest in Iberia.


    Muscowy

    King Vasily I Rurikovich took an outstanding opportunity to gain land from Novgorod as it declared war on the weakened state in 1412. Its war against Novgorod would show to be a good decision as it gained considerable territory from them. Muscowy is growing in power and influence in the Russian Steppes, yet the Golden Horde is knocking at its door.


    Golden Horde

    The Golden Horde has surpassed all expectations coming into 1422. Many in Europe believed the country would splinter when civil war was announced in 1405. The country would stay intact, but would cost the great Khan’s death in the process. His son, Khagan Shadi Beg Khan Genghisid would become ruler of a recovering Golden Horde. Instead of licking its wounds, the Khan went on the offensive declaring war against Lithuania, Novgorod, and other Far East kingdoms effectively crushing all of its enemies.


    Khagan Shadi Genghisid demanding annual tribute from a conquered foe


    By 1422, the Golden Horde is larger, more secure and able to war with any of its neighbors with deadly consequences. Its heyday has not arrived just yet.


    Ottoman Empire

    The Ottomans have had slow success against its neighbors. It has nearly unified the Anatolian Peninsula. It is also waging a successful war against Venice for control of Constantinople to bridge the two Ottoman territories once and for all. With Constantinople under Ottoman control, it would usher in a new era in the East, as it would properly introduce the Ottomans as the bastion of Islam. All of Eastern Europe, including the Kingdom of Hungary is weary of the Turk’s thirst for new gains in Europe.


    Venice

    Though still considered a small state in Europe, it is notable for it conquered the once great city of Constantinople in 1418, effectively wiping Byzantium’s rule and culture from the world. The War of Veniero’s Pride, as the war would later be called, began due to an insult by Emperor Manuel II of Byzantium to Venice’s Doge, Antonio Veniero. The Venetian navy attacked the Byzantine navy off of the coast of Constantinople and scored an overwhelming victory. With no Byzantine navy to protect the city's harbor, Venice sent 10,000 mercenaries to attack the great city of Constantinople. The siege would last nearly a year before the starving inhabitants finally surrendered. The last stronghold of former Roman glory and culture was gone.


    The Siege and Fall of Constantinople by the Venetians in 1418


    Doge Veniero would never see the city fall as he died in Venice one month before the surrender. The new Doge, Mario Casanova Crescarzi would have a difficult agenda for his state. By 1422, newly acquired Constantinople would be in revolt and Venice would be at war with the Ottoman Empire.


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


    (1) - As one may notice, the Kingdom of Poland no longer exists in the world. The Kingdom of Hungary would absorb the Polish lands in 1422 with the death of King Sigismund I of Hungary and the ascension of his son, Matyas I. More on the Polish throne inheritance for Hungary will be discussed in Chapter 1 of Part 2.

    (2) - King Edward IV of Lancaster would later be considered one of the best Kings of England for his role in uniting all of Britain. Though this achievement was helped due to his great father's victories over the Irish, it would be Edward that would revitalize the Hundred Years War and bring pride and victory back to the English people.

    Although I do love the French thrashing their bad tempered English neighbors, I strongly resent the death of any monarch named Henry IV. Be he French or Anglo-Saxon.

    It'll be interesting to see how the Magyar Rebellion plays out though. Kudos from Nepal, Eber.

    I'm surprised that you're able to keep track of what all those different nations are doing!

    It definitely looks like Hungary will be getting some trouble from the Ottomans and then later the Muscovites.

    Great AAR! I've just got up to date on it. I like the history book approach as it allows you to justify actions that might have been done for gameplay reasons but can be given a motivation within the context of the story.

    I see that you share a border with the Ottomans now. That should make life interesting in future. Poor old Castille doesn't look too well, but at least that means Granada has survived.

    I always loved Henry IV too. The Magyar Rebellion was definitely a major turning point in the history of Hungary. Also, how's Nepal? That's definitely not a place you hear someone visiting. Nepal has a very interesting history as well.

    It does take a little work to log what the major countries are doing, but I think it's worth it. It makes the historical account of Hungary a little less linear when you know there's an active world beyond the country's borders.

    You're right about the Ottomans and later on the Muscovites, but there is one menace to Hungary that you may be surprised about later on.

    Thanks Dewirix! I love your Yamato AAR too. I'm a little fearful that I now share a border with the Ottomans. I liked the buffer state of Transylvania between us. Castille definitely has been beaten up by Portugal and Aragon. I'm not too surprised with Aragon, but Portugal taking land is impressive. I'm most surprised about England and France though. England has become a powerhouse in my game taking a good chunk of France (and later on some other territory I won't disclose.) France has been unable to unite its lands which saddens me because I really want to take on France in a large war in a century from now or so on.

    Also, I COMPLETELY forgot to mention Pommerania!

    If you look you notice they took quite a bit of land from the Teutonic Order. They have become quite the little power up in the north. They play a factor down the line. I love underdog stories.

    Sorry for the lack of updates guys! It's been a week since my last update. It's midterms for the university so I'm busy with papers and exams.

    Also, with the available free time I do have, I actually have been playing Mount & Blade: Warband. This is all due to the Me, Floris AAR by Monnikje that I found due to the AARland Choice AwAARds It's a great AAR...and a really fun game...Actually, the game would be PERFECT for a narrative AAR. Just perfect...

    Anyway...again I'm sorry and a new update will be up this week sometime. I just wanted to pop my head in and say I'm still around and this AAR isn't dead.

    No problem on the updates, especially as you're playing Mount and Blade! Haven't tried Warband, but still have the original and lose weekends to it occasionally. I'd love to see someone do an Oblivion-style RPG using the engine as has so much potential.

    That would be awesome if they used the engine for an Oblivion-style RPG. I do love the engine, graphically it isn't top of the line, but it's still impressive. I really enjoy Medieval II Total War, but Warband is better due to the RPG element. It sucked up a lot of my time lately, as you can tell. Once you play it for a while though, you do start to see some holes in the game. I dislike how you can marry, but not have children. Plus it can be a relatively short game if you conquer quickly. All in all, it's definitely worth it.

    Is it dead? Would be a shame

    Birds flying high, you know what I mean
    Sun in the sky, you know how I feel
    Dragonflies out in the sun, you know what I mean, don't you know?
    Butterflies all havin' fun, you know what I mean
    Like sleeping in peace, when the day is done
    And this old world is a new world
    And a bold world
    For me
    And I'm feeling good!

    No, it's not dead. I just suck at life right now. I just recently went through a very awful and devastating breakup with my 3 year girlfriend whom I lived with. Plus finals are coming up so it's not been the best of times right now. So the AAR is not dead. I just haven't been in the right mind to start writing again. I am dreadfully sorry for the inconvenience.

    Haha the Turks? Whenever I play Hungary it's always the Austrians that are the biggest stab-me-in-the-back threat. Although they're at least not the emperor, not yet anyway.

    I'm not sure a does justice to how you must be feeling right now. No need to apologise - we can wait until you're feeling like taking this up again.
