Queen of the Adriatic - Venice AAR
On June 9th, 1815, The Congress of Vienna ended, the treaties signed and the Venetian and Lombardi territories were given back the the Austrian empire, and was considered the Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia under control of the Austria.
In the 1832 the kingdom faced a series of pro–Venetian independence movements led by Daniele Manin, A very young statesmen who was nephew to the last doge of Venice Ludovico Manin. these movements were largely unsuccessful until one fateful day in 1835 where Daniele was gunned down by Austrian troops on the streets of Venice. The backlash was terrible within the month anti–Austrian partisans began openly firing upon Austrian troops and not very long after the entire Venetian area was in chaos.
Archduke Rainer Joseph of Austria openly denounced the actions of the Austrian troops that opened fire on Daniele and even had a few of them put on trial however the action was too late and a full fledged rebellion was in place. in 1836 the new king of Austria Ferdinand I, decided that the Venetian rebellion was not worth suppressing any longer and granted Venice its independence becoming the Kingdom of Venice.

Hello all welcome to my Venetian AAR, which i am writing because i was bored and i wanted to make an AAR for Alexspeeds contest!
I chose Venice because i had a great game with them earlier in 1.1 and want to try again in 1.2, Keep in mind I'm not very good and this is my first AAR so feel free to post suggestions
My goal for my game is to become a Mediterranean super power, not necessarily to form Italy (Although I may if i'm actually able to get into a stable GP slot)
Updates will be coming fast as i need to have the first 5 chapters done by next week, or at least i would like to have them done by this time so i hope you like my Venetian AAR!
