Die Österreich Throne's Tale
Ich bin Albrecht V, it is my 5th day as the Austrian Monarch, it is also the turn of the 17th century. Thanks to my Great, great, great, great, great, grand Daddy, King Albrecht IV, and other previous rulers that have sat on this rusty, old chair otherwise called as "Die Österreich Throne," I now control most of central germany.
Standing before you is an army of 12 regiments. The other, 138 regiments are either chasing rebels around my backyard or making sure rebels don't get a chance to stand up in the first place.
The former kings have "mercilessly" favored Land warfare (most N.I. are Land warfare modifiers) and they have totally disregarded naval technology, except for King Maximilian I, the only ruler who never ever went to war. He helplessly built 14 caravels and 10 transports. Of the 14, 12 got sunk by 24 Ottoman-galleys in one battle during the 3rd War of Austrian Aggression against the Ottoman Empire (Ottoman Empire, Serbia, Bosnia, various Khagnates and allies), a campaign led by my predecessor King Friedrich V.
The 10 transports would eventually send off 30,000 men to Cornwal. Before King Maximilian I took throne, King Karl II Joseph thought that the ever present Great Britain in Europe was a grave threat to Austria having had one of the largest armies along with Spain, The Papal Estates, some eastern nations such as Lithuania and the Ottoman Empire. During the 2nd War of Austrian Aggression (King Karl II Joseph) at which GB was an enemy, he grabbed to chance to let GB release Cornwal, and consequently King Karl II Joseph vassalized Cornwal. Right now, I have an army waiting to invade GB should I decide to push the "Are sure you want to Declare War on GB yadiyadiya?" [I do] button.
Before I move on to sharing about my neighbors, esp. France, have a kitkat; Have a break, Have a Kitkat.
