    Part One


    On the day of his coronation, July 21st, 1432, Wladyslaw, the second of the name, was almost 20 years old, and the heir to the throne was his four year old son, August. At the same time the electors of Holy Roman Empire chose him as emperor.
    One of the first decisions of the young king was to get the rights to the crown of Hungary, which currently was in the hands of Lajos, the third of the name. Therefore, immediately after the coronation an envoy was sent to Hungary with one time proposal. As expected, the proposal was rejected and the next day the Kingdom of Poland was at war with the Kingdom of Hungary. Margraviate of Brandenburg, a longtime ally of Poland, unexpectedly joined the war on the side of Hungary.


    [I had D&T mission to form union with Hungary.]


    On August 14th the Kingdom of Hungary signed a peace with the Bulgarian Empire. Bulgaria had to cede Sofia and Bulgaria, cancel all treaties with Wallachia and Ethiopia and had to pay 7900 ducats as war reparations. On August 23rd, after just 20 days, the Polish army took full control of the Neumark.
    Early September brought bad news. The Kingdom of France joined the war on the side of Hungary and took over the leadership in the alliance. From that moment it was certain that the crown of Hungary would not go into hands of Polish King. On September 10th Potsdam surrendered and a day later peace talks with Brandenburg began. A few days later a peace of Potsdam was signed, in which Neumark passed under Polish suzerainty, Brandenburg canceled all treaties with Hungary and had to pay 7500 ducats as war reparations.



    Meanwhile, Polish forces arrived in Hungary, where on September 29th Zbigniew z Brzezia clashed with the Hungarian king Lajos, the third of the name, referring general victory. On November 4th combined Polish-Lithuanian troops destroyed Hungarian army in Carpathia and 10 days later took total control of the province.
    On November 16th came envoy from Brandenburg and proposed renewal of the alliance. Council wanted to cut his head off, but the king decided that allies such as the Brandenburg are useful. And that Brandenburg was again an ally of Poland.
    On November 17th, in Moravia Alexander Karol Wyhowski, defeated army commanded by Otto Kan and a week later caught the retreating forces near Vienna, annihilating them.



    On January 14th, 1433, Margraviate of Brandenburg joined the war on the side of Poland.
    On February 4th, another battle in Moravia took place, in which Alexander Karol Wyhowski, defeated a French army under the command of Joseph de Betune. In early April French troops under the command of king Philippe, the seventh of the name, arrived in Ersekujvar and defeated troops commanded by Zyndram z Maszkowic.
    At the end of June envoy arrived with information that the Kingdom of France is now at war with the Kingdom of England.
    On July 17th Alexander Karol Wyhowski defeated French troops in Neumark and moved forces to Prenzlau, where on August 17th fought lost battle against French troops under the command of Clement de La Ferrandi.
    On November 26th France signed peace treaty with England, ceding Gascogne, Normandie, Caux, Picardie and Calaia and paying 7300 ducats of war reparations.



    In early February 1434, the war was close to an end. On February 18th Palatinate signed peace with Kingdom of Poland by paying 65000 ducats of war reparations. A day later peace treaty with Kingdom of Hungary was signed. Ersekujvar and Carpathia were ceded to Poland and Hungary had to pay 2500 ducats of war reparations.
    On February 20th the Kingdom of France signed peace treaty, ceding Vorpommern and paing 22500 ducats as war reparations.
    [I didn't noticed that it was Brandenburg, not Pomerania, that occupied Vorpommern.]

    During the war Wladyslaw, the second of the name, realized that Kingdom of Poland needs significant military ally. Immediately after the war began a search that ended successfully on March 10th, when alliance treaty was signed between Kingdom of Poland and Kingdom of Castile.
    The remaining months of the year were spent on economic development and bringing the order in country after the war.

    The year 1435 brought only one significant event, the outbreak of war between the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Norway.

    In early February, 1436, Wladyslaw, the second of the name, met with the electors of the Holy Roman Empire in Nice, where they were working on further improving of the government of the Empire. On February 21st reform of Nice was announced.



    On March 15th, 1437, the Kingdom of Norway signed peace treaty with the Kingdom of England. In the peace treaty Norway ceded Orkney and Feroyar, canceled all treaties with Denmark and Bulgaria, granted independence to Belgium and had to pay 11600 ducats of war reparations. The remaining moths of the year were spent on improving diplomatic relations with the Member States of the Holy Roman Empire.

    On February 24th, 1438, the Bulgarian Empire signed peace treaty with the Kingdom of England. In the peace treaty Bulgaria ceded Silistria and Dobrogea, granted independence to Principality of Moldavia, canceled all treaties with Bosnia, Montenegro and Byzantine Empire and had to pay 3200 ducats of war reparations.
    At the end of March arrives envoy from Castile with a call to arms. The king agreed to join the Castilian side in the war against Kingdom of Portugal.
    On August 7th, Alexandru, the third of the name, hospodar of Moldavia, recognized sovereignty of the Kingdom of Poland and paid homage to Wladyslaw, the second of the name.
    On August 18th, Kingdom of Portugal lost the war and became vassal of the Kingdom of Castile.



    On April 21st, 1439, envoy from Milan arrives, asking for help in the war against Venice. Fulfilling its obligations under the imperial crown, the king agrees to help and on the next day the Kingdom of Poland was at war with Venice, Wallachia, and Austria.
    In early June, dies master of the mint Alexander Sulkowski, appointing as his successor Michal Korybut Kmita.
    On June 12th the combined Polish-Bohemian forces defeat Austrian forces at Vienna and began siege of the city. The same day, the Polish army defeated Wallachian troops in Bessarabia. On August 7th, after 77 days of the siege, last stronghold of Ostmarch surrendered, and 4 days later in Vienna.
    On October 12th, Radu, the third of the name, hospodar of Wallachia, seeing that the war is lost, paid homage to Wladyslaw, the second of the name.
    In early December, during the pursuit of the Austrian troops, Alexander Karol Wyhowski is killed. After the war the king found a great monument of him in Warsaw.
    On December 21st The Austrian envoy arrives with a proposal of peace. Austria would end vassalization of Nevers and Cleves and pay 3400 ducats of war reparations. After consulting with the council King accepted the proposal.


    [I had war score of ~22% but Austria didn't accepted any peace offer, even white peace.
    So I accepted their peace offer ]


    In early March, 1440, began peace talks with the merchants of Venice. After 3 days peace treaty was signed. According to it Venice had to grant independence to Crete and pay 10000 ducats of war reparations.
    On April 18th the Kingdom of Castile signed peace treaty with the Papal States resulting in status quo.
    On November 11th duke of Crete Bernardo, the first of the name, puts himself under the protection of the Kingdom of Poland and paid homage to the Polish King Wladyslaw, the second of the name.

    End of Part One.

    Part Two


    The year 1441 passed quietly without major events.

    On April 3rd, 1442, duke of Cyprus Philippe, the first of the name, paid homage to the king of Poland. The remaining months of the year were used for the improvement of relations with Member States of the Holy Roman Empire, as the entire year 1443.

    At the beginning of the year 1444 arrived a call to arms from Kingdom of Castile, which was fighting against the Mamluks. Fulfilling its obligations Kingdom of Poland joined the war on the side of Castile. Polish troops had no chance to take part in the war, as peace has been signed on June 6th. According to it Sultanate of Mamluks had to cede Diamentia and Romagna to Castile and had to pay 10000 ducats of war reparations.
    On September 22th dies Prince of Hesse Philipp, the first of the name, and in his last will wrote that the Hessian lands would be ruled by Emperor of Holy Roman Empire, Wladyslaw, the second of the name. A few days later a hunting accident happened to August, the only son of the king. Despite the efforts of medics 16 years old heir dies.


    [Another lucky PU from royal marriage.]


    On March 18th, 1445, envoy from Milan arrives, with the same request as last time. Venetian merchants invaded their country and asks for help in the war. King fulfills the obligations arising from being Holy Roman Emperor and joins the war on the side of Milan. On June 10th troops under the command of Bronislaw Piaseczynski reached Gφrtz where defeated Venetian troops under the leadership of Mario Ruzzini. Then, pursuing the retreating enemy, reached the vicinity of Trieste where on June 17th annihilated venetian army.
    On December 3rd last stronghold in the province of Treviso surrendered.

    In early June, 1446, begin peace talks, which ended on June 16th, so treaty was signed ending the war. According to it Venice renounced their claims to the island of Crete, canceled all treaties with Mantua, Modena, Sicily, Switzerland and Ferrara, and had to pay 2500 ducats as war reparations. The rest of the year were spent to bring order in the country after the war.



    On September 17th, 1447, the Kingdom of England declared war on the Kingdom of Sweden. As the Kingdom of Poland and Sweden were connected with personal union, Poland joined the war on the side of Sweden. At the same time envoys were sent to allies for help. Kingdom of Castile refuses assistance. Morea, Serbia, Wales and Naples joined the war on the side of England.
    [I don't know why Castile refused to join defensive war.]

    On December 17th, Polish forces gained full control over Dobrogea.

    In early February 1448 Polish troops take full control over Silistria and early May over Burgas. On November 1st in Bergslagen took place first clash between Polish and English armies. Bronislaw Piaseczynski defeated troops led by Christoper Clinton. Fleeing English troops were completely annihilated on November 21st in Φstergφtland. On December 3rd Swedish troops regain control over Bergslagen.

    In early January of 1449 Swedish troops manage to regain control over the province of Varmland.
    On March 1st reform of the army was announced and according to it military drill became the basis for the training of new troops.
    [My government technology reached level 12 and I adopted the idea of Military Drill.]

    Both sides were tired of the ongoing war, so in the middle of the year peace negotiations began. After many months, on November 24th, the Polish king Wladyslaw, the second of the name, conceded defeat, thus ending the war.



    A day later came envoy from Kingdom of Castile and proposed renewal of the alliance. Once again, Council wanted to cut his head off, once again the king decided that the alliance with Castile was needed.

    On June 26th, 1450, the queen gave birth to a long-awaited male heir, Henryk.
    On August 2nd dies Grand Master of the Teutonic Order, Johan Eustache, the second of the name. The king with the support of the council decided that it was a good time to incorporate the land to the Kingdom of Poland.
    [In retrospect, it was a bad decision. I got unlawful empire territory giving me, among other things, +1.0 infamy each year. Thus my infamy decreased only by 0.15 each year.]

    On September 1st, 1451, dies Bronislaw Piaseczynski. The funeral lasted for two days.

    On March 4th, 1452, despite the opposition of the Apostolic Nuncio, the Polish king Wladyslaw, the second of the name, crowned himself as the Emperor of Polish Empire.



    The year 1453 brought two major events. The revolt of the peasantry in Belarus in late August, and the election of a new pope, Pius, the second of the name, in early September.

    In early March, 1454, a comet appeared on the sky, both the people and the council took it as a sign of incoming war. And so it happened when on September 19th came envoy from Castile asking for help in the war against the Sultanate of Jerusalem. The emperor has fulfilled the obligations of the alliance. The remaining months of the year were spent on preparations for the crusade.

    If crusade had a chance to complete Polish troops had to have a safe passage through areas of Asia Minor. Therefore, at the beginning of 1455 envoys were sent to the Byzantine Empire, the Sultanate of Jalayirids, the Sultanate of Chobanids and the Sultanate of Eretnids with gifts to the rulers of these countries for enabling Polish army to march through their countries. On August 29th envoys returned with information that Polish troops are free to march up to the Sultanate of Jerusalem. The Emperor had no chance to use the free passage, since on September 2nd Kingdom of Castile annexed the Sultanate of Jerusalem.



    The year 1456 brought no events worth of noting in the annals of history, and so the year 1457.

    The year 1458 began with preparations for war against the Golden Horde. Information supplied by spies revealed that Horde troops are busy fighting in the Far East. Emperor Wladyslaw, the second of the name, thought it was a good time to conquer some infidels lands. On April 30th preparations have been completed and the next day the Polish troops crossed the border with the Golden Horde. At the same time envoys were sent to the allies. All fulfilled their obligations.
    On May 28th Polish troops took control over Voronezh, on June 4th over the Kharkov and on June 6th over Kyzyl Yar. Two weeks later Tambov was under Polish control and on July 1st Cherkassk. In mid-July the last fortress in Kasimov surrendered and on August 4th in the Crimea and Bogutjar. Next provinces were conqured faster and faster. In October surrendered Ryazan, Vladimir, Sarai and Kouban and in late November Kalmykia.

    In early January, 1459, the allied forces took control over Astrakhan, in early February over Grozny and at the beginning of March over Bersh.
    July 16th saw the first clash between Polish and Tartar troops. In the province of Bersh allied troops, led by Fridrisch Trutnov, tore into dust 36 000 Tartar army, commanded by Jabbar. Returning from the Far East Tatar troops could not change the result of the war.
    In early September began peace talks that ended on 22nd of the same month with the signing of the Crimean peace. According to it the Golden Horde ceded Tula and Voronezh to the Polish Empire and granted independence to Nizhny Novgorod and the Crimean Khanate.



    End of Part Two.
    Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.

    Part Three


    On May 10th, 1460, died Jan, the first of the name, King of Belgium. In his last will, wrote the crown of Belgium to Henryk, son of Wladyslaw, the second of the name.
    [Yet another PU from royal marriage.]

    The year 1461 Emperor and the council spent on improving relations with the Member States of the Holy Roman Empire.

    In mid-1462, before the Emperor arrived the Apostolic Nuncio, stating that Pope Pius, the second of the name, excommunicated Enrique, the third of the name, king of Castile. This was surprising because the Kingdom of Castile fought the infidels in North Africa for years.

    The year 1463 saw only one major event. The Byzantine Empire won the war against the Sultanate of Morocco, gaining Tangiers, Ceuta and Infi.



    At the beginning of 1464, before the Emperor arrived envoys from Milan, with a request to the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire to regain former Milanese lands owned now by Venetian merchants. Wladyslaw, the second of the name, agreed to help and a few days later Polish Empire was at war with Venice. At the same time envoys were sent to the allies. Again, Kingdom of Castile refused to participate in the war.
    [I used 'Imperial ban' CB. Again, I have no idea why Castile refused to join war.]

    On March 11th Polish troops conquered Trieste and on June 11th Treviso. A week later first clash between Polish and Venetian forces took place near Friuli, where Polish army under the command of Zygrfyd Kurozwecki defeated the combined forces of Venice-Mantua led by Prince of Mantua Giafrancesco, the first of the name. On September 14th Friuli was already under the complete control of the Polish army. In mid-October the Duke of Mantua, in the presence of the Emperor Wladyslaw, the second of the name, conceded defeat.
    On November 9th, after 115 days of the siege, Verona surrendered and on December 19th Parma.

    On January 26th, 1465, the Polish army occupied Venice and on March 21st Lombardy. A day later, The Venetian Peace was signed. According to it Venice ceded Lombardy, Parma and Verona, renounced their claims on Corfu, canceled all treaties with Sardinia and granted independence to Croatia.



    In aftermath to war Duchy of Parma was created under the protection of Polish Empire and the remaining lands were returned to Duchy of Milan.
    On March 24th Almos, the second of the name, Duke of Croatia puts himself under the protection of Polish Empire and paid homage to Wladyslaw, the second of the name. On September 7th Gian Galeazo, the first of the name, Duke of Milan did the same.

    On January 14th, 1466, Venice lost the war against Ferrara and was annexed. On March 18th Giafrancesco, the first of the name, Duke of Mantua, and on December 5th Ippolito, the second of the name, Duke of Ferrara, put themselves under the protection of Polish Empire and paid homage to Wladyslaw, the second of the name.

    On June 16th, 1467, Filiberto, the first of that name, Duke of Modena, put himself under the protection of Polish Empire.


    [I had quite high infamy (around 18) which wasn't lowering (see part two),
    so I decided to diplo-vassalize as many HRE members as I could.]


    The year 1468 brought two important events. On May 25th Antonio, the second of the name, the patriarch of Aquileia, puts himself under the protection of Polish Empire. On October 4 The Emperor got letter from the Apostolic Nuncio, in which he wrote that Pope Pius, the second of the name, put excommunication on him. The news was expected after the coronation as Emperor without the consent of the pope.

    In 1469 another country of the Holy Roman Empire declared itself as vassal of the Polish Empire. This time it was Margraviate of Meissen.

    The year 1470 brought no event worthy of note in the annals of history.

    The year 1471 brought three important events. At the beginning of the year Byzantine Empire ended the war against the Sultanate of Morocco, annexing most of its lands. On July 18th Zygfryd Kurozwęcki died and the Emperor issued later monument to his memory on Grzybowski Square. On September 2nd died childlessly last hospodar of Pricipality of Moldavia and Moldavia was incorporated into the Polish Empire.



    On March 23rd, 1472, Landgraviate of Thuringia, as the next country of the Holy Roman Empire considered itself as vassal of the Polish Empire.

    Similarly, on August 25th, 1473, Erich, the first of the name, duke of Mecklemburg paid homage to Wladyslaw, the second of the name.

    On March 1st, 1474, as if anticipating his death, the Emperor declares war on the Kingdom of Hungary desiring to recover the lands on which Poland has a legitimate claim, during his lifetime .
    On March 16th last fortress in Pressburg surrendered, on March 21st in Miskolc and on April 12th in Transylvania. On April 26th, after only 26 days of siege, polish forces gain full control over Sorpon. The next day the Kingdom of Hungary signed peace ceding Pressburg and Transylvania, withdrawing its claim to Carpathia and Ersekujvar, and paying 35000 ducats of war reparations.



    At the end of July 1475, Prussian insurrection broke out, which was quickly suppressed by the Polish army.

    On April 28th, 1476, Filipe, the first of the name, king of Castile announces that from this day on his kingdom, as it controlled the entire Iberian peninsula, would have the name of the Kingdom of Iberia.

    In early March, 1477, Imre, the first of the name, Prince of Transylvania, puts himself under the protection of Polish Empire and paid homage to Wladyslaw, the second of the name.

    On March 23rd, 1477, at the age of 64 years dies Wladyslaw, the second of the name, Emperor of Polish Empire, King of Sweden, Bohemia and Belgium, the Grand Duke of Lithuania and Moscow, Prince of Smolensk and Hesse.
    By descendant called "the Wise".



    Few days after the funeral of Emperor nobility of Poland, Bohemia, Lithuania and Sweden signed in Warsaw act of union, replacing personal union with real union.

    Henryk I the Rash
    b. 26.06.1450 – d. 12.02.1500

    Emperor of Poland 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    Grand Duke of Moscow 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    Prince of Smolensk 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    Prince of Hesse 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    King of Belgium 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500




    Part One


    On the day of the coronation as the Emperor of Poland Henryk, the first of the name, was 26 years old. He did not have a male heir yet, and so his nephew, Alexander, became heir to the throne.
    [In polish there are separete words for sister's son and brother's son. Nephew here means sister's son.]

    The electoral vote of the Holy Roman Empire previously belonging to the Kingdom of Bohemia, passed to the Polish Empire. The others electors chose Karl, the first of the name, Archduke of Austria as the Emperor.
    [I lost the Holy Roman Emperor title due to my infamy.]

    Remaining months of 1477, as well as full year 1478, were spent on reorganization of the army and promotion of new generals. One of the most promising ones was Piotr Dunin.

    The year 1479 brought no events worthy of note, in contrast to the year 1480.

    In early February in northern Sweden rebelled part of the nobility, opposing the union with Polish Empire. The revolt was quickly suppressed by the Polish troops. At the same time preparations for another war with the Golden Horde begun. The moment was favorable, as horde at the time was at war with the Sultanate of Nizhny Novgorod and the Sultanate of Chagatai.



    On April 1st army was ready and on the same day Polish troops entered the territory of the Golden Horde. At the same time envoys were sent to the allies. None of them refused to help in the war.

    On April 24th, troops led by Piotr Dunin took control over Kasimov and then moved to Tambow, where on May 27th defeated Tatar forces led by Muhammad Nasange Ulug. A little earlier, on May 15th, the remaining Polish forces took full control over Cherkassk and Kharkov. At the end of May came information that the Golden Horde and the Sultanate of Nizhny Novgorod signed a peace treaty. Nizhny Novgorod had to cancel all treaties with Crimean Khanate and Khanate of Khiva, had to grant independence to Ryazan an had to pay 4000 ducats of tribute.

    On June 1st reform of the army was introduced which enforced use of regimental system as a basis for Polish Army.


    [My government technology reached level 15, so I adopted Regimental System as NI.]


    At the end of June, Polish forces took control over Tambow and on July 8th over Kouban. On August 3rd troops led by Piotr Dunin defeated Tatar forces on the plains of Astrakhan and on August 15th took total control over the province.

According to it Golden Horde renounced claims on Cherson, Kursk, Voronezh and Zaporozhia, granted independence to Kazakh Horde and had to pay 10000 ducats of tribute.


    [I couldn't take more infamy as it was decreasing with amazing speed of 0.30 each year.]


    On December 14th Holy Roman Emperor Karl, the first of the name, sent a letter requesting the return of Kurland. The request was ignored by the Henryk, the first of the name. Part of the nobles did not like Emperor's decision and the internal stability of the country decreased.

    At the end of February, 1482, Holy Roman Emperor sent the same "proposal" for the province of Estland. Polish Emperor refused to return the province. The remaining moths of the year did not bring notable events, and so did the year 1483.

    First moths of the year 1484 was occupied with preparations for war against the Crimean Khanate. Polish Army was ready to fight in early March and day later Polish troops crossed the border with the Crimean Khanate and thus starting the war. Polish Empire allies were informed in advance and joined the Polish side in the war. On the side of the Crimean Khanate fought Ryazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Jalayirids, Khiva, Eretnids and Chagatai.


    [I wasn't planing to go to war so quickly, but after refusing to return HRE provinces my prestige was very low.]


    On April 12th, in the vicinity of the Crimea, Polish troops led by Piotr Dunin defeated the army under the command of the Crimean khan Hajji, the first of the name. On April 21st the Crimean Khanate was already under Polish control and a few days later it was incorporated into the Polish Empire.

    The war continued, but now only against Ryazan and Nizhny Novgorod. Jalayirids, Khiva, Eretnids and Chagatai Khanate offered white peace after the collapse of the Crimean Khanate.

    On December 3rd Nizhny Novgorod surrendered and on December 23rd Murom. A few days before the end of the year Sultanate of Ryazan signed peace treaty. Accoriding to it Ryazan revoked claims to the provinces of Kasimov, Tula and Beloozero, canceled all the treaties with the Golden Horde, and granted independence to Qasim Khanate.



    On January 6th, 1485, peace treaty with Nizhny Novgorod has been signed. According to it Nizhny Novgorod revoked claims to the provinces of Veltuga and Vologda, canceled all treaties with the Kazakh, Ryazan and Khiva, and granted independence to Sultanate of Murom.

    [This was the first time I had this event.]

    End of Part One.

    Henryk I the Rash
    b. 26.06.1450 – d. 12.02.1500

    Emperor of Poland 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    Grand Duke of Moscow 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    Prince of Smolensk 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    Prince of Hesse 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500
    King of Belgium 23.03.1477 – 12.02.1500




    Part Two


    The first half of 1486 proceeded very quietly. The second started with preparations for war against the Kingdom of England. The emperor believed that a relatively easy victory can be achieved and the Black Sea possessions of England gained. England was at war with Kingdom of Denmark for a few years so English troops should be exhausted and should not be a match for Polish troops. The future showed how wrong he was.

    On October 1st by the Emperor Henryk, the first of the name, summoned the ambassador of the Kingdom of England, and handed to him diplomatic note informing of the declaration of war by the Polish Empire. When the war begun Serbia, Saxony and Bavaria joined the side of Kingdom of England.


    [In retrospect it was a mistake. I should renew the alliance with Iberia first, so their fleet could harass English navy.]


    November 3rd brought two events. Victory of Emperor Henryk, the first of the name, against the Bavarian troops led by Prince Karl, the first of the name, and gain of full control over the province of Silistria by the Polish army. Ten days later Polish forces gained full control over Burgas. On December 14th in the province of Bohuslan Polish forces under the command of David Piaseczynski defeated English forces under the command of the English King Richard, the fourth of the name. It was a Pyrrhic victory because loses on the Polish side was much greater than on the English side.

    On February 3rd, 1487, Brandenburgian forces took control over Niederbayern and on February 15th Polish troops commanded by the Emperor himself gained full control over Oberpflaz. A day later, Karl, the first of the name, Duke of Bavaria, signed a peace treaty with the Polish Emperor. According to it the Duchy of Saxony was no longer a vassal of the Duchy of Bavaria, Bavaria canceled all treaties with the Kingdom of England and had to pay 20000 ducats of war reparations.



    On April 2nd in Vastergotland battle took place, in which Richard, the fourth of the name, defeated an army led by David Piaseczynski. Two months later Leipzig surrendered and the next day Duchy of Saxony signed a peace treaty. According to it Saxony became vassal of the Polish Empire, canceled all treaties with Bavaria, revoked claims to the provinces of Bamberg, Meissen, Thuringen and Dresden, and paid 2500 ducats of war reparations.

    In early July it was already known that the purpose of the war with the Kingdom of England would not be achieved. Thus peace negotiations began. On July 16th peace treaty of Stockholm was signed. Both sides agreed to return to the status quo.

    In early May, 1488, an unknown disease falls Alexander, nephew of Henryk, the first of the name, and the only heir to the imperial crown. Despite the efforts of medics and prayers of the Emperor, on May 10th he dies.



    In early April, 1489, the conclave elected a new pope Callistus, the third of the name. A few days later the new pope announced a crusade against Jalayirids.

    In mid-May to Warsaw arrived envoys from the Emperor of Ethiopia Baed Maryam, the second of the name, with proposal for a royal marriage. The emperor listened with great interest to the story about the only Christian state in Africa, and then agreed to the proposal.

    On October 10th dies Holy Roman Emperor Johann, the first of the name. Electors of the Holy Roman Empire choose Joseph, the first of the name, as the new Emperor.

    The beginning of 1490 saw preparations for crusade against the infidels. The preparations have gone very quickly and on January 24th Polish forces were ready to enter the war. And so crusade against Chobanids began.


    [My original goal was to liberate Judea.]


    On March 1st in Denizli David Piaseczynski commanding combined Polish-Austrian troops defeated small Chobanids' forces and continued his march to Jerusalem. On June 17th he reached the outskirts of the Holy Land where defeated another Chobanids' forces and then merged with the Iberian forces besieging Jerusalem.

    On July 4th the Empress gave birth to long-awaited male heir, Jan Albert.

    In the 1491 the siege of Jerusalem has not yet ended but vassals of the Polish Empire managed to get almost all of Georgia.

    In was mid-1492 when Jerusalem surrendered and came under the control of Iberian troops. In the meantime vassals of the Polish Empire wreak havoc in the lands of Chobanids. On October 23rd, after two months of negotiations, peace treaty with Chobanids was signed. According to it Chobanids ceded Georgian lands, of which the Emperor Henryk, the first of the name, created the Duchy of Georgia under Polish protection.


    [As I wasn't able to conquer Judea, I decided to take something else instead.]


    The year 1493 saw only one major event. The outbreak of war between Archduchy of Austria and the Kingdom of England.

    On February 15th, 1494, the revolt of the peasantry in the province of Finland took place, but was relatively quickly suppressed by the Polish army. The remaining months of the year did not bring significant events, and so the year 1495.

    The year 1496 began with preparations for another war with the Golden Horde. The moment was very favorable, because once again Tatar forces were busy fighting in the Far East. In late February preparations have been completed and the troops crossed the border with the Golden Horde. Allies of the Polish Empire did not refused to help in the war.



    On March 16th Polish troops gained full control over Kharkov, on March 21st over Cherkassk, and on April 14th over Kouban. In early May the last fortress in Tambov surrendered, on May 13th in Kalmykia, and on May 28th in Astrakhan. Beginning of July brought a winning in Kasimov, on July 11th in Sarai, and on August 4th in Tula.

    It was not until September 1st that the first clash between Polish and Tatars troops took place. Szymon Przyjemski defeated Khan of the Golden Horde Said Ahmed, the second of the name.

    On January 7th, 1497, dies David Piaseczynski. After the end of the war Emperor Henryk, the first of the name, issued a monument of his name.

    Tatar troops returning from the Far East could not change the outcome of the war. Peace talks were quick and one-sided. Golden Horde ceded Kouban, Kharkov, Cherkassk and Kalmykia to the Polish Empire and revoked claims to Crimea and Kyzyl Yar.



    The remaining months of the year were used to restore order in the Empire after the war.

    At the beginning of 1498 died Knyaz of Novgorod Republic. Despite many attempts other Knayzes failed to elect new leader. Emperor Henryk, the first of the name, used this as a pretext to incorporate Novgorod Republic into the Polish Empire.

    The year 1499 brought only one significant event. Using the observations made during the war with the Golden Horde polish generals were able to develop a new type of infantry, more resistant to cavalry charge.
    [My Land Technology reached level 15 and I gained Eastern Militia as new unit type.]

    On February 12th, 1500, at the age of 49 dies Henryk, the first of the name, Emperor of Poland, King of Belgium, Grand Duke of Moscow, Prince of Smolensk and Hesse, lord protector of Swedish, Finish, Lithuanian, Bohemian, Moldavian and Ukrainian lands.

    State of the world in the year 1500

    Map of the known world with major powers marked
    (clik for bigger image (warning: 5MB in size))



    British Isles:
    Withing last 144 years Kingdom of England gradually conquered other states in region and it's dominant power there.
    It is unlikely that Wales, although independent now, will survive next 100 years.

    Gaul (Gallia):
    After 144 years Kingdom of France managed to conquest most of Gaul region but not without problems. First one was lost war against England in which Kingdom of England gained strong foothold in Normandy. Second one was conquest of what was left of Burgundy by Austrians.
    Next 100 years should be quite eventful with France trying to remove English presence in Normandy, Duchy of Brittany struggling to survive between two powers, and Austrian being kicked out of Gaul region.

    Iberia:
    There is only on power in this region - Kingdom of Iberia - which was created by Kingdom of Castile after conquering whole Iberian peninsula.
    In next 100 years Iberia will most likely start to colonize Americas. The only thing that could end very successful Iberian Kingdom would be war with France or England.

    Northern Africa:
    Within last 144 years Muslim states in northern Africa has been replaced by Christian colonies. The most surprising one is Byzantine Empire which conquered Kingdom of Morocco.
    Next 100 years should see some of former Muslim states gaining independence, but this time as Christian countries.

    Apennine peninsula:
    Peninsula is divided between three main powers. In the north there are Italian duchies which are vassals of Polish Empire. In the center there are lands owned by Kingdom of Iberia. In the south there is quite successful Kingdom of Naples. Between these three powers is the Rome, still owned by the Papal States.
    In the next 100 years Naples will most likely conquer Rome. The future of Iberian footholds is uncertain.

    Holy Roman Empire:
    Holy Roman Empire is still a mess, although some attempts to subjugate HRE states by Polish Empire can be seen. Austria is the current HRE emperor but most likely will lose this title in text next 10-20 years.

    Scandinavia:
    Peninsula is divided between three powers. South-western part is occupied by Kingdom of England, north-western is owned by Kingdom of Norway, and the rest is under Polish suzerainty.
    In the next 100 years England will most likely try to conquer what is left of Norway and Denmark unless stopped by someone.

    Central and Eastern Europe:
    There is only one power in this region - Polish Empire. Within last 144 years it managed to conquer or subjugate all Christian states. There was once quite successful Kingdom of Hungary, but after losing war against England and Austria it didn't managed to recover and it's on decline. Most likely will disappear in the next 100 years.

    Balkans, Greece and Asia Minor:
    Balkans region is... balkanized. Some parts are still owned by Hungary, some are occupied by Kingdom of England and Kingdom of Iberia, and the rest is owned by Byzantine Empire. Byzantines has seen their empire in better shape. At height of the power it owned Serbia, Greece and half of Asia Minor. But then English and Castilians came and conquered some Byzantines lands. Weakened empire was attacked by Chobanids which gained some land.
    But there are signs of recovery within the Empire. Currently it's fighting against Chobanids and occupying all infidels provinces in Asia Minor.
    Next 100 years should be interesting. If Byzantine Empire will manage to recover it will most likely conquer more Asia Minor provinces and maybe even retake English or Iberian ones.



    And now things that I'm planing to do in the next 100 years.

    First of all I will try to conquer Riga, it doesn't look nice inside my empire
    Second, I will try to ally with Iberians and then try to conqer English colonies in Black Sea.
    Third, I will try to conquer the rest of Scandinavia including English provinces.
    Fourth, I will once again try to subjugate Hungary.


    And now questions.

    What to do when reformation starts. Should I stay with catholic fate or should I convert to protestant? I don't know yet.
    Where to expand? East or west? Expanding to east is much easier but western provinces are much richer. Currently I'm thinking about expanding westwards.
    What to do with HRE? If everything goes well I will be the next Emperor. But I don't want to form HRE, I joined the HRE to be protected by the Emperor. The best option would be to disband HRE asap.
    Be careful what you wish for, it might come true.

    i think you should establish a north-south line between genoa and hamburg as your western border, about scandinavia you can annex it all and try to go for collonies in murrica, in italy - i would take only genoa, in balkans annex hungary and bosnia, in the east, go for pacific and as for balkans/middle east, if bizantium coems out triumphant, pu it and make some vasals like georgia there, otherwise just annex annex annex


    edit: thats a good map btw, maps showing only poland&vasals should have had darkened exterior lands

    North-south line between Genoa and Hamburg wil be best western border Scandinavia without doubt will be mine Hungary and Byzantines too

    I would say expand westwards and eventually once your naval/trade tech is high enough, try to get involved in the Colonial game a bit too. Expanding Eastwards will turn you too much into an Alternate Russia, when the Polish kings in the west could surely envy the lands of Germany as a future stomping ground!

    I the east I will conquer only European part of Russia so my COTs in Kouban and Novgorod will have bigger value.
    But the main focus will be of course the west
