Ferdinant went back to killing pirates. He had heard of a small fleet of pirates around the Straits of Gibraltar that was terrorising the Granadan coast. He sailed with all haste. He arrived and saw 30 pirate ships. This was not a small fleet, this looked like the main pirate fleet. No, he had heard rumors of a fleet way larger than 30. In the hundreds, they said. Ferdinant didn't believe that there were hundreds, but more around 50/60 ships. The pirates had spotted the Cruzada Nueva. Ferdinant could not beat such a large navy with one ship. He thought. No, he didn't have time to think. He waited until the pirates were in range of his ship. He fired his cannons. 2 galleys got hit and one sunk. The other was critically damaged. Another salvo, 4 ships got hit. He hoped that this was just not a lucky shot. Galleys got in boarding range of his ship. Barrels with food were thrown on their ships and the ships capsized. Ferdinant quickly retreated, sinking 12 ships in this small battle. But he now knew how much piracy had skyrocketed while he was imprisoned.

1551-1555 – A New Age

With the call for war with Portugal and Castile, Aragon ramped up for war. Three more infantry units were recruited for the army in Barcelona and five caravels were placed under construction. The main fleet was taken out of the mothballs, with the transport fleet headed for Naples to ship the army there to Iberia. The army in Athens would be next. Conquistador Miguel de Leon was sent orders to end his hunt for El Dorado and head for the Portuguese Colombian border. All the forts along Castile’s and Portugal’s borders were garrisoned. The preparations were well under way.

Even as Aragon prepared for war, Savoy and Provence went at it yet again, which could well turn into quite the regional war. Further north, Denmark attempted to reclaim land from Pomerania, who was already being ganged up on by Poland, Sweden, Venice, and the PapalState.

As for Portugal, they caught the spies sent by Alfons VII in Alentejo right as they were leaving. An embarrassing mistake, but it was too late for Portugal to do much about it. All that was left to do was transport the African army to Sanchonia to prepare for an invasion of Portugal’s colonies.



In November of 1551, Portugal finished its war with the tiny native nation of Muisca, taking two provinces. The time to strike was soon before Portugal moved its troops back into place. The military was given full funding, just as a spy was sent into Burgos, the last Castilian province, to forge a claim. Once all the pieces were in place, war was declared.



Two armies of 10k men headed straight for southern Portugal, with General Francesc Gabriel Gerard Miquel Bernat de Loarre leading the northern force heading for Alentejo. Two more armies of 10k men led by Generals Cesar Miguel de Montcada and Wolfgang Oliver Lübecker converged on the Castilian capital, while the smaller army of 6k men headed for Burgos. In the New World, Conquistador Miguel de Leon headed for Essequibo while the African army went for Suriname. It was hoped that they would later converge on Cumana, the Portuguese Colombian capital, after taking the eastern provinces.

With the navy still on its way back from Sanchonia, it was no in place to help protect a Galician ship from being attacked by the Portuguese. The ship was not sunk, but it was forced back to port. Things went much more smoothly on land. The two armies that converged on Castilla La Vieja caught the Castilian army and forced it from the province. General Montcada headed on for Salamanca while Lübecker remained behind to siege the Castilian capital.

Alentejo, Algarve, and Burgos all fell in May, and the armies spread out. General Loarre went for Lisboa to take the Portuguese capital, while the southern army headed up to Beira. The smaller army in Burgos moved on to Leon. A French navy arrived outside Portugal that month, relaying information that the untouched coastal provinces had no enemy armies in them. Portugal’s armies were not in Iberia. If they had been, they wouldn’t have been for long as a French army of 50k men was spotted marching into Navarra. There was no chance of losing this war with that assistance.



A Portuguese trade fleet made the mistake of running into Aragon’s main fleet. Five more ships were sent to the bottom of the Atlantic. At the same time, Portugal tried to raise reinforcements in Iberia, only for one regiment to be eliminated on the spot.

After Salamanca and Leon came under control of Aragon, the two armies moved into northern Portugal, closing the vice.

A Portuguese Colombian army showed up outside Cumana, trying to sneak by through the wilderness. Once his current siege was done, Leon attempted to intercept the enemy force. A native attack on the Portuguese Colombians helped hold them down long enough to catch them. The battle was a long one and Aragon lost some good men, but Leon proved victorious. The battle also kept the enemy tied down long enough to capture all provinces east of Cumana.



Back in Iberia, the last piece of resistance was wiped out. Both Portugal and Castile had all their armed forces in Europe defeated. With the fall of Braganca, Aragon’s armies moved into place to lay siege to every enemy province left in Iberia. The French sort of lingered around, helping where they could be, seeing as most of the work was done already.

In September of 1552, plague broke out in the province of Almeria. Steward Armand Antonio Sastre moved quickly, mobilizing the resources at his disposal to organize a proper response. Aid was sent to the sick and attempts were made to isolate the contagion. It seemed to work, for the most part.



The peasants of Galicia were a dumb lot. They felt oppressed and decided the best way to get back at their duke was to rise up. Of course their timing was absolutely terrible, for they forgot to account for the 30k French army moving through the province. It’s an easy guess that things did not end well for the rebels.

With the funds available, five flutes were placed under construction to add to the transport fleet.

By October, all but the Portuguese and Castilian capitals had fallen in Iberia. All of eastern Portuguese Colombia was under occupation with the exception of Cumana. Leon and his men headed west to continue the siege efforts. He engaged a small force and had some difficulty dealing with them due to the terrain.

When Castilla La Vieja finally fell in December, 40k men converged on Lisboa to finish the job in Iberia. King Juan III of Castile started begging for peace, but it was not granted to him. King Alfons VII held off on accepting any offers since he still had spies forging a claim on Burgos. He wanted that done first before settling a peace.



As Leon attempted to take Maracaibo, a Portuguese army of 10k was spotted heading in from Tunja. Knowing he was outnumbered, he immediately headed east to Cumana to meet up with the African army. The conquistador faced a setback as natives in Coro attacked him by surprise. The Portuguese caught up and a battle ensued. The army in Cumana immediately went to reinforce, leaving Sanchonia’s small army to handle the siege of the province. They were unable to arrive in time, forcing Leon and the small contingent of men left to flee east.

Over in Bahia, the growing colony was developing a successful forestry industry. The type of wood in the province was quite valuable back in Europe and made a great source of income for the colony.

This war, due to its increased focus on the New World, required more transportation overseas. To ensure that navies and trade fleets were properly protected, small warships known as corvettes became quite popular to defend them.

Lisboa fell in April of 1553, leaving all enemy European province occupied. The Aragonese armies immediately dispersed, ready to be shipped back to their usual spots.



Portugal made the interesting choice of launching an attack on the army in Caracas, despite their men still weary from the last battle. As expected, the enemy was knocked back. Then Portuguese Colombia decided to make a suicide run at the army. Leon and his men had retreated to Essequibo, but as soon as they were reorganized, Leon left his men and travelled alone to Caracas. He arrived just in time to take command of the African army. The Portuguese Colombians were expecting an army of men unaccustomed to the harsh jungle climates of Colombia. Instead they found an army led by the one man who knew the jungles better than anyone. They were easily overwhelmed. The only better news was that Sanchonia had captured Cumana for Aragon. That made up for the loss of a Sanchonian ship.



The African army headed west to finish the job and encountered a small regiment in Altagracia. It was nothing the army couldn’t handle. With that taken care off, the army moved on into Maracaibo. The colony was ripe for the taking. Chancellor Jaume Limmona has given instructions to take as many Portuguese colonies as possible, so Leon ordered the colony seized. There was some outrage that this violated the Treaty of Tordesillas, but the Pope seemed unconcerned. Colonist Miguel Villanova was recalled from Bahia to help establish control over the seized colony. It was hoped that the locals could be convinced to accept Aragonese rule. Until then, the treasury was suffering to maintain three colonies at once.

As Leon and the African army marched on to Tunja, his old expedition force went for Guajira. Unfortunately, no one accounted for Portugal sneaking through the wilderness. They caught the expedition force unawares, killing the entire mercenary force. The king, upon hearing the news, immediately ordered five more mercenary regiments to be recruited in Iberia to be sent to the New World. They’d replace Leon’s old expedition.

King Alfons’s spies returned in September, successful in their mission. With claims on all of Castile, the king could push for the full annexation of the kingdom. There was one problem that worried the ever paranoid king. He feared that the Castilian Trastámara line would use the conquest of their kingdom as the excuse to sway Castilians to their cause and rise up in rebellion in all of Aragon’s Castilian land. King Juan III was already angry enough at Aragon, for the kingdom had conquered his land and his only son Alfonso had died during the siege of Castilla La Vieja. As long as they lived, they threatened his throne. Yet he could not go far enough to kill them, for they were still relatives, no matter how distant, and executing a royal was always a dangerous proposition. It was Queen Caterina who proposed a solution. King Juan III still had one daughter, the young Isabel, who was now his heir apparent. If she were to be married to Prince Ferran, this would essentially unite the two crowns under the rule of their children. Yes Castile would still be conquered, but there would be no doubt who the crown of Castile now belonged to. Thus Prince Ferran and Princess Isabel were married in one of the tensest weddings in Aragonese history. The Aragonese and Castilian Trastámaras that attended hated each other, and it could be felt in the air. King Juan III seemed more depressed than angry. Even though he did not want this union, he approved of it knowing that that he had no alternative. The crowns of Aragon and Castile would be forever united thanks to this Iberian wedding.



Back in Colombia, Conquistador Leon launched an attack on the enemy force in Maracaibo before they could retake the province. He achieved a solid victory. He even hunted down a small Portuguese Colombian army that tried to hide in Magdalena next door. That didn’t end well for them. His mission though was to take Tunja so that the fort could be used. As for Iberia, the order was given to mothball all forts, since Aragon’s European territory was not in any danger.

Tunja did not take long to capture, for the fort was not even garrisoned. Boguta fell next. Now Leon just had to move up through Panama, taking the provinces one by one. In the meantime, the new mercenary force was on its way from Iberia. Portugal then showed up and tried to sneak through Magdalena, not that Leon would allow that. As expected, Portugal was pushed back again. A new obstacle appeared in the form of Portuguese Colombian peasants rebelling in Cartagena. They’d hopefully keep Portugal busy, but blocked the path to Panama.

Villanova’s efforts ended in success as Maracaibo not only became self-sustaining, but embraced the Aragonese way of life. In Europe, Savoy in turn found itself pounced on by Switzerland and Rome was under siege by Tuscany yet again.



In June of 1554, Leon captured Guajira and seized the colony as ordered. This colony was much smaller than the last, but Villanova was sent anyway to help bring the population in under Aragon’s control fully.

The PapalState found itself violated yet again, but fortunately did not lose Rome, although emptying the Papal coffers was practically sinful.

An attack on the peasants in Cartagena was launched in the continued campaign west. It was nothing the conquistador couldn’t handle. Some more peasants even attacked reactionaries in the neighbouring native province and lost there too. How embarrassing for them.

At sea, the navy patrolled the Caribbean, hunting down enemy ships. They caught two in the eastern waters and showed them no mercy.



Aragonese merchants from all over were reporting greater difficulty trading in foreign markets. The Crown had always been a strong supporter of trade and used its influence to help alleviate the crisis by pressuring foreign powers to trade fairly with Aragon.

Another behemoth of the east expanded as Poland took land from Pomerania, encroaching ever more into the HRE. In more surprising diplomatic news though, Venice declared that it no longer considered Aragon a rival. Perhaps the merchant republic got tired of the rising tension between the two and wanted to make amends. They had been allies long ago.

A priest in Aragon’s African provinces had translated the bible into Aragonese, much to the surprise of everyone, for translation of the bible was forbidden. There were some at court who wanted this issue to be let go and allow the priest to distribute these bibles freely, but Queen Caterina was not one of them. She immediately sent word to the Inquisition, which burned the man at the stake for his heresy.



By October, the Aragonese forces had reached Colombia and the Portuguese army waited next door in Veraguas. An assault on their position was launched. It was at this time that the natives of Guajira decided to rise up. Leon beat the Portuguese, but there was no way he could reach Guajira in time. The colony was plundered by the natives with only 60 survivors. Angered by this setback, the Crown ordered Colonist Villanova to abandon the settlement and return to Bahia. The remaining settlers could take up residence in neighbouring Maracaibo.

Veraguas and Chorotega fell quickly, but the Portuguese army had escaped and retook Panama. Leon launched an offensive on the province just as the Crown finished the process of integrating Salamanca and Castilla La Vieja into the realm. With Castile now conquered and the growing focus on the New World, the people of Sicily felt more neglected. Some even felt they were no longer accepted in Aragon.



In Africa, Tunis further weakened Tlemcen, reducing them to an OPM. Denmark also lost more land to Pomerania in the north.

Leon, after taking Panama, launched one more attack on the Portuguese force. They kept getting away before they could be eliminated though. It was only after a second battle that they were finally defeated.



With the enemy force gone and all provinces occupied, King Alfons VII finally felt satisfied that a peace could be signed, and it was a humiliating one too. The Portuguese were stripped of all their colonies, wiping Portuguese Colombia from existence. The Treaty of Tordesillas was still in effect, but it held no power anymore with Aragon holding all of Portugal’s colonial land. All claims were forced to be given up and a hefty war indemnity was squeezed out of Portugal. Some pointed out that the war had technically been started over Algarve, but that was not included in the peace. Portugal had lost over half a century of work and was reduced to their Iberian territory.

Difficulty arose with administering these new colonies. Aragon didn’t have the administrative capacity to govern them fully. Focus was given to four of the smaller colonies and the integrated Maracaibo. It was hoped that once these five had a proper administration, a colonial government could be established. For the moment, select provinces would be given greater autonomy. There were also two territories that once belonged to Muisca that followed some primitive heathen faith. Missionaries from the Inquisition were sent in, with estimates that the two provinces would be Catholic within a year.

Presenting His Majesty, Alfons VII de Trastámara, King of Aragon and Galicia, and Protector of the Greeks.

We have done it. A century ago when our namesake, Alfons V, fell facing the Castilians, the very idea that Castile could be conquered by Aragon would have been laughable. We had been forced to back down, unable to defeat them. Slowly but surely, we learned from our mistakes and inflicted blow after blow upon them. Now they are no more and the Castilian crown has been brought into the superior Trastámara line. As for Portugal, once we were allies, but our colonial ambitions have put us at odds. Now the Portuguese’s only colonial ambition is to have colonies again. Let them serve as an example of Aragonese might. We shall dominate this New World.

We also have some things to consider. With Castile no more, we should perhaps adopt a more formal union of the two kingdoms to make it official. We must also find a better way to govern these new colonies. So much to consider.


((Lots to do now. Now that we have conquered Castile and cored the required provinces we can officially form Spain. However, I personally see the name Spain as too Castilian for my tastes and have decided that we should change the name if we adopt the decision. People are free to suggest names for our new kingdom, or we could just keep Aragon. Just list some and we’ll vote on them. I’ll probably also have a vote on whether to change to Spanish yellow or keep Aragon’s colour. We’ll also need a name for the inevitable colonial nation that will appear in Colombia, so suggestions for that are welcome too.

As for our normal business, all ministers have until Sunday at 12pm PST to post their plans. Everyone else can post any laws in that time too, and landed nobles may nominate themselves for the Cortz too, since we now have an opening. Also so I don’t forget, we have 5 more trade ships that our Grandmaster can assign to a trade node. I have them in Ragusa for now simply because I didn’t want the Portuguese getting at them.

((We could just call it Hispania and keep Aragon's color. As for the colonial nation, how about Leonia? After all, it was de Leon who did most of the conquering of Portuguese Colombia, I think.))

Miguel returned to Sanchonia tired. Was this what war was like? He had lost many good men, killed many Portuguese and Castilians. Natives died as he burned down their villages. Why, then, did so many men have to die at his hands?
He shook those thoughts out of his head. You did what you had to, he told himself. He had defeated the Portuguese and seized their colonies. He had helped bring the Gospel to the natives of Sanchonia. And thanks to his efforts and those of his fellow Aragonese, Castile had ceased to exist. Aragon was now unquestionably the most powerful nation in Iberia and the New World. He was a part of that.
You did fine.
He looked at his ancient sword, stained with the blood of hundreds of Iberians and natives.
Now where was that blasted Fountain and El Dorado?

Violated again! The heathen Tuscans ransacked Rome for the second time. Precious art and jewels were absconded by those vile merchants. The Church could ill afford such a blow to their prestige when her legitimacy was being questioned in Europe.

Velazquez tried to save Rome as best as he could. The Iron Cardinal led a small army outside the city gates against the invaders. But it was no use. The Tuscans were too strong and most of the pope's forces had been weakened by years of fighting around Italy. The Iron Cardinal fled from the field in shame while the holy city was sacked.

News from Aragon was better, at least. The kingdom had finally vanquished Castile and united the two kingdoms. The cardinal almost wished he was there but the fight in Rome was more important. He was also heartened by the news that a local heretical priest who tried to translate the Bible into Aragonese was burned. The only dark spot was that Aragon violated the Treaty of Tordesillas.

He would not go back, though. He did not trust the king after his insulting actions towards the Church. Velazquez could only pray the king would see the dangers and remove all heretical influences from the court.

We have no further plans as Grand Admiral, but as Marshal we desire to see two cavalry regiments and three artillery regiments added to the army in Barcelona, with any excess infantry regiments disbanded so that the army is equivalent to the others. This army should be shipped to the New World to keep the former Portuguese colonies under control alongside the African army.

Francesco was relived for the success in securing Castilian and Portuguese territories, he hadn't yet decided on a suggestion for the new name of the united peninsula. But he did have something to do.

To the noble Aragonese court, i wish to nominate myself to the Cortz for a second time. May God bless.

Clearly you have not been paying attention to recent events. We have all of Portugal's colonial empire to govern. We do not have the men or resources to govern any more land across the seas. Do you want to endanger Aragon with needless expansion when our position overseas is precarious enough?

Your Majesty, I have a solution for the governance of the Portuguese colonies. The ATC will govern the lands in the name of the king, and in return the ATC will get a monopoly on the region of Colombia. We all know that having a centralised body of trade will increase profits, as seen in Sanchonia. The conquest of the Maya has not to be done immediatly, but it should be done one day. We would not want the Portuguese, the English or even the French conquering the rich lands.

It is the job of merchants to trade, not govern. We encourage you to bring wondrous goods back from Colombia to Aragon or to supply these colonies, but it is our prerogative how these colonies should be ruled. We shall select who governs the colonies, not some trading company.

I want to unite our two companies. Aragon is changing... and we have to change with it. I think we should meet in Valencia. We can go over how the unification will be handled there.

Sir,

I apologize for my lateness in writing this letter, for I have been struck with a recent bout of sickness. I am overjoyed by your release from the dungeons of the so called "Iron Cardinal" and hope for justice to be served. It is also my pleasure to return the responsibility of leadership back to the true expert. With your return, the ATC will thrive like never before and expand to new horizons. As well, I have heard of your efforts in fighting the Muslim pirates and wish to offer my assistance in any possible way.

With joy,

Santiago Aybar
