  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

What’s wrong with that? If elect. Cologne lose Electrorate or reforms government the city should be inherited and get some nasty rebellious events.
No. Why would the city be integrated when Electoral Cologne loses influence and power?

By the time "Electoral Cologne" loses its electorate, Köln (the tag with the city of Cologne) could already be free and a reasonably great power (especially if controlled by the player). Why should the former electorate inherit the "city", when they have parted ways?
Country names should not include references to government forms or special powers (like being an elector) which are not bound to the tag. There are few exceptions where this logic breaks down a bit (E.g. Teutonic Order or The Knights).
Thus, no "Electoral Cologne" tag. Similarly, the city of Bremen is represented by the Bremen tag, but the archbishopric of Bremen is actually Verden. Following this logic, the Electoral tag would be Bonn? Given the importance of the electorate, that would be a bit annoying.
Lastly, the Cologne province is already small. If split, it would go below Utrecht-size, which is an issue.

Its somehow right until Saxony and Saxe Lauenburg.

To form Prussia as a Teutonic order or any other nation, should be a requirement to own Berlin and maybe even Brandenburg shouldn't exist.

To form Prussia as a Teutonic order or any other nation, should be a requirement to own Berlin and maybe even Brandenburg shouldn't exist.
Any (Duchy or lower tier monarchy government) HRE Prince should be able to form Prussia as long as they are on good terms with the Emperor (with some other conditions obviously). However, the only real benefit of forming Prussia should be the Kingdom rank government. The Prussian ideas and the Prussian government should be exclusive to Brandenburg and any country formed by Brandenburg. The Teutonic Order should also be able to reform into Prussia, yielding them a Duchy tier monarchy instead of their theocratic starting government, but not the ideas or special government type.

To form Prussia as a Teutonic order or any other nation, should be a requirement to own Berlin and maybe even Brandenburg shouldn't exist.
But why? Prussia proper is the Teutonic order territory, Brandenburg has nothing to do with it.
The historical state was called Prussia, because Prussia was a kingdom rather than the electoral march of Brandenburg. (Though electors historically were only a smidgeon below kings in rank).

Any (Duchy or lower tier monarchy government) HRE Prince should be able to form Prussia as long as they are on good terms with the Emperor (with some other conditions obviously). However, the only real benefit of forming Prussia should be the Kingdom rank government. The Prussian ideas and the Prussian government should be exclusive to Brandenburg and any country formed by Brandenburg. The Teutonic Order should also be able to reform into Prussia, yielding them a Duchy tier monarchy instead of their theocratic starting government, but not the ideas or special government type.
Eh, forming Prussia is a good goal to strive for as a German minor, especially as there are still some with the generic German ideas. The current Prussian ideas are not extremely Brandenburgian anyway.
