Liebes Paradox Team, dear fellow EU4 gamers,

as many of the German minors do not have any country specific flavor, I thought I add some for the most beautiful region, Baden ;)

The thread was first mistakenly posted here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/flavor-events-for-baden.1000923/#post-22455177 sorry about the inconvenience and double posting!

Please find below my suggestions. I am happy about corrections, discussions and other ideas (especially about the effects/gains, etc.). Events for the 15th/16th century would be very welcomed too.
My sources and texts are from wiki (&history books). I can add those links of course :)




1) The Badisches Landrecht 1622


Margrave George Frederick introduced the Landrecht in Baden in 1622. This civil code was described as "the most thorough of any of the German territorial states" and remained in force until 1809.

Fires: 1620-1650

Gain: 50 Admin Power



2) The Simplicissimus

The author Hans Jakob Christoffel von Grimmelshausen created the stories about the Simplicissimus, which has been called the greatest German novel of the 17th century and attained a readership larger than any other seventeenth-century novel.

Fires: 1650-1680

Gain: 5 Prestige



3) The “Türkenlouis”

Margrave Louis William, Margrave of Baden-Baden, was named chief commander of the Imperial Army and came to be called the Türkenlouis or shield of the empire for his many defeats of Turkish armies. The Turks called him the red king, because his red uniform jacket made him very visible on the battlefield.

Fires: 1670-1710

Gain: 50 Military Power



4) The Tulip friend and city founder

Margrave Charles III William was an enlightened absolute ruler. Charles William was the founder of the city of Karlsruhe which became the Residenzstadt. He introduced administrative reforms and successfully fought corruption. He also showed a completely different face as a flower collector. He grew a considerable collection of flowers, especially tulips. The gardens burdened the finances of the small country considerably - rare tulip bulbs cost easily half the annual salary of a servant.

Fires: 1700-1740

Pay 5 month of income -- Gain 5 Prestige, lose 1 Corruption and gain 20 Admin Power



5) The enlightened Despot

Charles Frederick, 1st Grand Duke of Baden, reunited the original land of Baden and was one of the longest serving monarchs with 73years in power. He was regarded as a good example of an enlightened despot, supporting schools, universities, jurisprudence, civil service, economy, culture, and urban development. He outlawed torture in 1767, and serfdom in 1783. He was elected a Royal Fellow of the Royal Society in 1747.

Fires: 1740-1810

Gain: 30 Admin Power, 30 Diplo Power



6) The Laufmaschiene of Drais

Europe suffered from poor harvests during 1812-1815 and then in 1815, Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted. The eruption affected the entire world and Europe saw snow all summer long. This drove the inventor Karl Drais to focus on a replacement for the horse used for transportation, due to a lack of food, and his subsequent invention in 1817 of the Laufmaschine / Velocipede (running machine), the earliest form of a bicycle.

Fires: 1810-1820

Gain: 5 Prestige

And an achievement for Baden
"Be the real Markgraf (Margrave) of Baden"

Be the real Markgraf (Margrave) of Baden*
Follow the steps of your forefathers from Zähringen and form the margravate of Baden. Play as Baden and own your core provinces Baden, Breisgau, as well as Verona, Treviso, Friuli, Görz and Istria.

*
In 1061 Dowager Empress Agnes of Poitou, widow of Emperor Henry III, enfeoffed the Swabian count Berthold from the House of Zähringen with Carinthia and Verona. Though he could not prevail, neither as Carinthian duke nor as Veronese margrave, he bequested the title to his descendants from the House of Baden, who went on to rule their Swabian territories as a "Margraviate" (the corelands of Baden never been a margraviate). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_of_Verona

And some more event suggestions, also covering the 16th century and the division and reunification of the two houses of Baden...
(sources wiki and other online platforms)


The Division of Baden


After Margrave Philip I of Baden died, his lands were divided by his brothers Bernard and Ernest in 1535. It would be the first of several partitions, establishing the two main lines of the House of Baden – Baden-Baden and Baden-Durlach.

Fires: 1530-1550

Lose 5 Prestige, 10 Legitimacy, gain 1 Unrest



Hexenverfolgung in Baden

The age of Reformation is unsettling your people. Rumors about witchcraft are spreading and people are calling for witch-hunts in Baden. We are concerned about moral panic and mass hysteria and must react. The two lines of House Baden followed different approaches, which one is most suitable for you?

Fires: 1540-1640

a) Set up witch-trials: Gain 1 corruption*, lose 1 Unrest

b) Tolerate heretics: Gain 1 Unrest, Gain 10 Admin and 10 Diplo power


*not sure about the corruption. Other suggestions?



The Reunification of Baden

As none of the sons of August George of Baden-Baden survived, a testament was agreed, granting the House Baden-Durlach his lands. In 1771 ended the division of Baden. Your lands are reunited again and together you are stronger than ever before.

Fires: 1765-1790

Gain: 5 Prestige, 10 Legitimacy and 1 Stability

The Bundschuh-movement

The Bundschuh movement (1493–1517) was a loosely linked series of localized peasant rebellions in southwestern Germany. It was so called because of the peasant shoe (Bundschuh = tied shoe) which was their symbol. The peasants are rising, and you must put down the revolt.

The German mediatization – Reichsdeputationshauptschluss

The German mediatization of 1803 was the major territorial restructuring of German states under the military and diplomatic pressure of Napoleonic France. Baden lost her territories left of the river Rhine, but was compensated with much larger territories. Due to their diplomatic efforts and good reputation, Baden gained more than seven times the territory they lost, including Heidelberg, Mannheim, Konstanz and other prestigious cities and gained the status as electoral prince.

Fires 1800-1810

Gain: 5 Prestige

The University of Freiburg

The Albrechts University was founded in 1457 by the Habsburgian Archduke Albert VI of Austria, the brother of Frederick III, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.

The ideas of this alma mater are spreading in our lands.

Fires: 1450-1470

Gain: 5 Prestige



The Freiburg Minster

The Freiburg Minster was officially finished in 1513. The red sandstone building is a landmark in our territories and known for its high tower, which later became famous as the “most beautiful tower in the whole of Christianity”. The church is one of the highest buildings of the known world and attracts many visitors.

Fires: 1490-1520

To unite Baden and Wurttemberg, I also created a list of events for the latter one - Baden-Württemberg here we go;)
EUV Württemberg Events



The Treaty of Nürtingen

The Treaty of Nürtingen was a treaty in German history, signed on 25 January 1442. It divided the county of Württemberg between count Ludwig I and his brother count Ulrich V.

Fires: 1444-1480

+0,5 yearly autonomy, -5 Prestige, -10 Legitimacy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Nürtingen



The Estates of Wurttemberg

The Estates of Wurttemberg were established with the peace treaty of 1316 and the “Landschaft” played an important role in the politics of the state for the centuries to come. Especially after the division of Wurttemberg, and with the Treaty of Tübingen in 1514 the role of the Estates was strengthened. The Estates in Wurttemberg were more influential than in most other German states and influence for the Estates was exchanged for money for the crown.

Fires: 1440-1520

Gain: +1Stability, +5Legitimacy, +0,5 yearly income

Lose: +X monthly autonomy (?)
