Hello and welcome to my third forum game: The Long 19th Century: 1789. We find ourselves at the very end of the Age of Enlightenment and the beginning of the French Revolution. Many historians consider this to be the start of the modern era and the possibilities are endless.

You play a nation and guide it through the years to come. I want to stress that you play as a nation, not as the nation's government. The government is obviously an important part of a nation, but there are many events and developments that take place without government involvement. Do not ignore them.

The game will start with the storming of the Bastille on the 14th of July. All events that have taken place before this day are assumed to have happened historically. From here on out it is up to you to determine history.

Rules

You will send me orders and I will determine how they turn out. In general I use a random number generator for this, although all orders do not have an equal chance of success. You are limited not by what is physically possible but also by what was possible in the setting of the late 18th/early 19th centuries.

I will write an update that covers a whole year about once every week. Between these updates I will sometimes write shorter updates that describe events in specific parts of the world. You are responsible for writing your country's history, making IC diplomacy, posting interesting background information, etc. The point is to make the game feel relatively rich and dynamic.

With all of that said there are two rules that everyone must follow. First rule: the GM is always right. Second rule: if you think the GM is wrong read the first rule.

Orders

Every country will send two orders per update. These should be the main priorities of the government or some sort of large private/civil developments in the country. You may include in the orders what you think they should accomplish, but you do not have to. In general please keep these somewhere between a couple of sentences and a paragraph.

Those countries with listed colonies may send one order to deal with any colonial issues. Same general principles apply to those.

In times of war countries may send two orders related to war. These must be related to the specific ongoing war. They should outline your campaign's goals, direct your forces where to fight, etc. They may not be general military-related things.

IRC Channel

The IRC Channel is where a lot of discussion takes place, both in character and out of character. Everyone gathers to discuss in-game and out of game issues. While it is not mandatory to be on the IRC Channel and to play, it is strongly recommended.

His Grace, the Prince-Elector, is most concerned at the recent violence sweeping over France; he wishes the best of luck the King and Queen, and that order will be restored.

Domestically, His Grace announces his plans to fund the expansion of several breweries and manufactories, with that these policies will prompt further growth and prosperity for his lands.

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


These United States are pleased to announce to the world that the implementation and adaption of the new Constitution of the United States is proceeding with the utmost efficiency, and is progressing well. The Presidential and House of Representatives elections have proceeded smoothly, and both myself as President and my staff are adapting well to our new offices. It is the government of these United States that looks to help support all of her citizens. There is no greater calling to the government, than to begin to help bring the country together, in order to continue to spread the control of the Government across the country.

Washington%27s_Inauguration.jpg

George Washington's Inauguration as President of the United States.​

I must ask the people of North Carolina and Rhode Island, both of whom have not yet accepted the Constitution of the United States, that such measures to adapt the Constitution be taken at the most possible of haste. These United States must begin to work as one, to ensure the unity of the country as a whole. At the same time, however, we wish to continue to advance, and the United States National Government wishes that the State of New York and Vermont begin to discuss, and come to a conclusion, over their outstanding disputes. The United States National Government shall provide a place for such negotiations and help both of these States with any problems they may or may still have.

Furthermore, the United States Government announces that we shall undertake the creation of the United States Army, which shall act as the standing Armed Forces of the United States. This action is to be taken in support of the new Government, as well as to help end the current war in the Northwest Territories of the United States of America. The Treaty of Fort Harmar has done little it seems to resolve the issues between these Natives and settlers of the United States, and this issue must be dealt with in time.

We also wish to open discussions with the United Kingdom in restoring the United States Minister to the Court of St. James's, in order to coordinate and communicate with His Majesty's Government, especially with matters dealing with the current ongoing conflict within the United States of America.

The Most Superb Republic of Genoa
Repúbrica de Zêna

The Most Superb Republic is vastly concerned by the unrest and instability that is running rampant in the Kingdom of France; and hopes that such dangerous tendencies can be curbed. Neither the Genoese nor the people of Italy wish for the French behemoth to repeat her last tour through the Italian peninsula. Genoa and all the Italian states must be strong and united in order to resist the tides of an unforgiving world.

The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth has heard about the instability in France. We wish the best of luck to the French king in restoring order and addressing any grievances of his people.

Though our Commonwealth has had to endure numerous trials and tribulations, and has lost much during the last decades, but let it be known to all that Poland-Lithuania does not seek revenge. We wish to coexist with our neighbors and seek redress to our grievances only through peaceful means.

His Majesty Stanislaw August Poniatowski

A PROCLAMATION,
from His Royal Majesty the King of Spain

The political situation within the French Kingdom to the North is, at the very most, worrying, what with the rebellion of those that would defy His Majesty the King of France. It is with the hopes of myself, my dearest colleagues, and the whole of the Kingdom of Spain - and her subjects - that His Majesty the King restore full political stability within his realm, with the cooperation of those that seek the same moderate goal, and to rule, fair-handed as ever, over our Northern Neighbors and Allies.

The royal bureaucracy and the colonial Administration shall see reform in the coming years, to see out of it maximum efficiency, with the least amount of expense from His Royal Majesty's colonial subjects and others that inhabit the territories of the Kingdom within those regions. Furthermore, to assist in the defense of His realm and His subjects, the army shall see expansion as necessary, with improved discipline and a fine officer corps leading the men in defense of the Kingdom. These men shall be taken willingly from the Lands that so deem themselves Spanish, and they shall see the finest training that can be provided from a state of the West, armed to the teeth and prepared to defend their homes in the name of the King and God Himself, against those that would seek otherwise to destroy those very homes and to usurp from His Majesty's Divine Right the lands he so rightfully controls and administers.

~ His Royal Majesty Charles IV, the King of Spain, the King of the Two Sicilies, the King of Jerusalem, and Sovereign Grand Master of the Celebrated Order of the Golden Fleece

Agha Muḥammad Khān Qājār
True Shah of Persia, Chief of the Qajar

For too long has Persia been fractured, shattered glory in the form of bickering tribes. We are passed by, relics forgotten and uncared for.


NO LONGER!

I shall unify these lands and restore the days of old. The Zand weaklings will fall under the Qajar, and embrace their new masters out of fear of our strength and reverence of our might. Eastern rebels will kneel before I, or be cast out and blinded like the insignificant jackals they are. The choice is simple; follow me unto victory, or stay behind to rot.

Recent developments in the west have stirred grave concern within our Imperial Chambers. The King of France, and his divine right to rule, as delegated by God, has been thrust aside by the dangerous proprietors of the radical 'Enlightenment' which in truth, shall do nothing but ignite the institution of fearful chaos and anarchy within our Europe. The leaders of Europe must be able to shift aside their differences in the face of such dark events, which threaten to tear apart the stability that has been preserved through Monarchical values. At the time, we are simply grateful that our Royal brother remains unharmed, and pledge for his protection in such uncertain times.

In light of recent events, the Liberalism that the intellects of nations once viewed adaptable, has now shrugged its ugly figure. As such, with the attention of Europe now shifting to the Revolution in France, the Russian state has concluded negotiations with our Turkish neighbors, and are now engaging in discussions with my cousin, Gustav III of Sweden, to end the conflict between our nations. It is upon this grave hour, that the people of Russia must display their iron resolve.


Treaty of Jassy

Article I: Recognition

I. The Ottoman Empire shall recognize the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca (Signed 1774) - This is excluding the Russian right to interfere in Ottoman governance over Wallachia and Moldavia.
II. The Ottoman Empire shall recognize the Russian Annexation of Crimean Khanate

Article II: Borders of the Empires
I. Yerdisan is to be annexed to the Russian Empire
II. The River Dniester is the new frontier of the Russian and Ottoman Empire.
III. The Asiatic Front, drawn at the Kuban River, is to undergo no territorial alterations, and therefore admitted into a state of status quo ante bellum

Article III - Transaction
I. The Russian Empire shall return all Turkish Prisoners of War.
II. The Ottoman Empire shall return all Russian Prisoners of War.

[X] Prince Alexander Andreyevich Bezborodko
[ ] Grand Vizier Koca Yusuf Pasha

Let us not waver in the face of dangers, Russia is one and indivisible!

The National Constituent Assembly


Conscious of the disorder and tumult endemic throughout the nation,

Concerned with the well-being and safety of all French citizens and residents,

Endowed with both the authority and the imperative to bring about a swift and just end to national uncertainty,

The National Constituent Assembly of France hereby issues the following decrees, to be applicable to all citizens and residents of France regardless of birth or locality:

I. The institution of feudalism and all attendant rights, privileges, and obligations are hereby fully abolished. All extant dues or rights originating in or representing real or personal serfdom are hereby annulled. All additional dues are hereby suspended until such time as their final status and any potential right to indemnification are determined by the Assembly.

II. The exclusive rights of bird-grazing and dovecotes are hereby abolished. The right to keep and kill birds shall be determined by the communities in which those birds exist.

III. The exclusive rights of keeping unenclosed warrens are hereby abolished. Every landowner shall have the right to destroy all kinds of game on their own lands, so long as regulations for public safety are maintained. All private hunting spaces are hereby abolished, including those owned by the Crown. Those being held for their violation of previous hunting laws shall be released given the permission of the Crown.

IV. All manorial courts are hereby suppressed and shall no longer enforce the law nor give judgments upon it. All civil judges and judicial officials shall remain on duty until further notice.

V. All ecclesiastical tithes and all substitutions thereof are hereby abolished in full. The Assembly shall devote further deliberation to alternative methods by which the maintenance of churches, the support of the clergy, the assistance of the poor, and the upkeep of religious institutions might be carried out.

VI. All ground rents shall be redeemable at a price to be determined by further deliberation of the Assembly.

VII. The sale of judicial and municipal offices is hereby abolished in full. Justice shall be dispensed freely.

VIII. The fees established by parish priests and curates for their services are hereby abolished in full.

IX. Individual privileges regarding the reduction of taxes or exemption from taxation are hereby abolished. All citizens shall be liable to taxation, according to a method to be devised by further deliberation of the Assembly.

X. Privileges granted to certain localities regarding the reduction of taxes or the exemption from taxation are hereby abolished. All areas of France shall be considered equal under the law.

XI. All citizens, regardless of birth or social class, shall be eligible for civil or military office.

XII. The clergy are forbidden to appeal directly to Rome or Avignon for financial donations or benefits and must instead issue their requests to their local diocese. Suitable donations shall be devised and distributed to the churches of France free of charge.

XIII. All additional dues and fees payable to the clergy shall henceforth be abolished in full.

XIV. Clergymen shall not be permitted a stipend or pension of greater than three thousand livres. Should an individual benefit from multiple pensions or stipends, their combined amount may not exceed three thousand livres.

XV. The Assembly and His Majesty the King shall jointly consider the matter of pensions, favors, and salaries, and render verdicts together on individual cases that result from the implementation of previous decrees, granting or suppressing those pensions or salaries as necessary.

XVI. A medal shall be struck to commemorate the important deliberations made by this Assembly for the general welfare of France, and a Te Deum shall be chanted in gratitude by all the churches and parishes of France.

XVII. For his important role in allowing these deliberations to go forward, His Most Christian Majesty, Louis, Sixteenth of His Name, King of France and Navarre, shall be proclaimed the Restorer of French Liberty.

XVIII. The National Constituent Assembly shall present itself as a body before His Majesty the King, there to present these decrees for his consent and approval.

XIX. The National Constituent Assembly resolves itself to take all necessary steps to enact such laws as are necessary to carry out these decrees.

Approved by majority vote on the grounds of Versailles in the month of August, on behalf of the people of France and His Majesty the King,
In the Year of Our Lord 1789

The Kingdoms of Sicily and Naples

The events recently having occurred in France worry us, and those of our court. While we are not hostile to the prospect of the French King surrendering some of his powers to a parliament, we will only maintain cordial relations with France provided that the Monarchy is maintained, and that our cousin, the French King Louis XVI, is unharmed and allowed to continue to rule France as King. We shall continue to observe the events unfolding in France, and will act accordingly.

On a more internal note, we wish to announce that a closer union between the Crowns of Sicily and Naples is being considered, so as to ensure greater unity amongst the government and people.

~ His Majesty Ferdinand III & IV of the Kingdoms of Sicily and Naples; Knight of the Illustrious Royal Order of Saint Januarius and Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece

Devlet-i Âliyye-i Osmâniyye

Whilst peace with the Russian Empire is most preferable, we cannot bring ourselves to sign the Treaty of Jassy unless parts of the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca are revoked, namely the right of the Empire to interfere in our governance over Wallachia and Moldavia, which we consider to be just and fair and to interfere in the Empire to protect Christians, whom are also treated with equal respect. The latter point especially was one of the key points that ignited this present war, because of the hostilities of the Russian Empire and their abuse of the privileges granted to them. Once more then, I will reiterate that we are willing to end this war, but we demand that the two points of the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca are either revoked or discussion on limiting their broad scope is done. I await the response of the Russian delegation, and hope that we can sort this affair out quickly.

His Majesty the King is most concerned by the recent violence coming out of the Kingdom of France. We hope that His Royal Majesty, the King of France and his loyal citizens will be able to restore order to the Kingdom and prevent any massive outbreaks of looting, theft and murder. His Majesty the King has decided that he will not take any action against the Kingdom of France so long as the Royal Family is safe or the situation in France changes significantly.

In the name of God the Almighty,

We have decided to grant leave to the request of George Washington, leader of the United States of America which We were the first to recognize as an independent State in the world, that American ships may use the ports, coastal and territorial waters of Our realm.

Futhermore as We feel that the time for Our ascend to Heaven has nearly arrived We like to adress the problems and tiding of the realm once more. Under Our guidiance we have retook authority from those who rebelled against Our wise rule, We have built Him above numerous new sites of worship and We have begun to throw out the intruding heathens. We have kept an open mind to deal with the heathen and We have offered Our protection to the children of Moses so that they may thrive in Our shadow, It is Our will that this great work shall continue after Our death, that Morocco will be whole and free once more, that the realm will be ordered and on par with those of the heathens and that belief is granted the necessary importance but reason and tolerance shall rull supreme.

We thus hope that those who come after Us may continue this great task to make Our country great once more to defend against all those who will try to enslave us.

Mohammed Ben Abdellah al-Khatib; Sultan Mohammed III. of Morocco, Commander of the Faithful

Louis XVI ascended to the throne amidst a financial crisis; the state was nearing bankruptcy and outlays outpaced income. This was because of France’s financial obligations stemming from involvement in the Seven Years War and its participation in the American Revolutionary War. In May 1776, finance minister Turgot was dismissed, after he failed to enact reforms. The next year, Jacques Necker, a foreigner, was appointed Comptroller-General of Finance. He could not be made an official minister because he was a Protestant.

Necker realized that the country's extremely regressive tax system subjected the lower classes to a heavy burden, while numerous exemptions existed for the nobility and clergy. He argued that the country could not be taxed higher; that tax exemptions for the nobility and clergy must be reduced; and proposed that borrowing more money would solve the country's fiscal shortages. Necker published a report to support this claim that underestimated the deficit by roughly 36 million livres, and proposed restricting the power of the parlements.

This was not received well by the King's ministers, and Necker, hoping to bolster his position, argued to be made a minister. The King refused, Necker was fired, and Charles Alexandre de Calonne was appointed to the Comptrollership. Calonne initially spent liberally, but he quickly realized the critical financial situation and proposed a new tax code.

The proposal included a consistent land tax, which would include taxation of the nobility and clergy. Faced with opposition from the parlements, Calonne organised the summoning of the Assembly of Notables. But the Assembly failed to endorse Calonne's proposals and instead weakened his position through its criticism. In response, the King announced the calling of the Estates-General for May 1789, the first time the body had been summoned since 1614. This was a signal that the Bourbon monarchy was in a weakened state and subject to the demands of its people.

The Estates-General was organized into three estates: the clergy, the nobility, and the rest of France. On the last occasion that the Estates-General had met, in 1614, each estate held one vote, and any two could override the third. Elections were held in the spring of 1789; suffrage requirements for the Third Estate were for French-born or naturalised males only, at least 25 years of age, who resided where the vote was to take place and who paid taxes. Strong turnout produced 1,201 delegates, including 291 nobles, 300 clergy, and 610 members of the Third Estate.

The Estates-General convened in the Grands Salles des Menus-Plaisirs in Versailles on 5 May 1789 and opened with a three-hour speech by Necker. On 10 June 1789, Abbé Sieyès moved that the Third Estate vote proceed with verification of its own powers and declare themselves the National Assembly, an assembly not of the Estates but of "the People." This National Assembly invited the other Estates to join them, but made it clear they intended to conduct the nation's affairs with or without them. A majority of the representatives of the clergy soon joined them, as did 47 members of the nobility. By 27 June, the royal party had overtly given in, although the military began to arrive in large numbers around Paris and Versailles. Messages of support for the Assembly poured in from Paris and other French cities.

By this time, Necker had earned the enmity of many members of the French court for his overt manipulation of public opinion. Marie Antoinette, the King's younger brother the Comte d'Artois, and other conservative members of the King's privy council urged him to dismiss Necker as financial advisor. On 11 July 1789, after Necker published an inaccurate account of the government's debts and made it available to the public, the King fired him, and completely restructured the finance ministry at the same time.

Many Parisians presumed Louis's actions to be aimed against the Assembly and began open rebellion when they heard the news the next day. They were also afraid that arriving soldiers – mostly foreign mercenaries – had been summoned to shut down the National Constituent Assembly. The Assembly, meeting at Versailles, went into nonstop session to prevent another eviction from their meeting place. Paris was soon consumed by riots, chaos, and widespread looting. The mobs soon had the support of some of the French Guard, who were armed and trained soldiers.

On 14 July, the insurgents set their eyes on the large weapons and ammunition cache inside the Bastille fortress, which was also perceived to be a symbol of royal power. After several hours of combat, the prison fell that afternoon. Despite ordering a cease fire, which prevented a mutual massacre, Governor Marquis Bernard de Launay was beaten, stabbed and decapitated; his head was placed on a pike and paraded about the city. Although the fortress had held only seven prisoners (four forgers, two noblemen kept for immoral behavior, and a murder suspect), the Bastille served as a potent symbol of everything hated under the Ancien Régime. Returning to the Hôtel de Ville, the mob accused the prévôt des marchands Jacques de Flesselles of treachery and butchered him.

The King, alarmed by the violence, backed down, at least for the time being. The Marquis de la Fayette took up command of the National Guard at Paris. Jean-Sylvain Bailly became the city's mayor under a new governmental structure known as the commune. The King visited Paris, where, on 17 July he accepted a tricolore cockade, to cries of "Vive la Nation!" and "Vive le Roi!"

As civil authority rapidly deteriorated, with random acts of violence and theft breaking out across the country, members of the nobility, fearing for their safety, fled to neighboring countries. By late July, the spirit of popular sovereignty had spread throughout France. In rural areas, many commoners began to form militias and arm themselves against a foreign invasion: some attacked the châteaux of the nobility as part of a general agrarian insurrection known as "la Grande Peur." In addition, wild rumours and paranoia caused widespread unrest and civil disturbances that contributed to the collapse of law and order.

On 4 August 1789, the National Constituent Assembly abolished feudalism (although at that point there had been sufficient peasant revolts to almost end feudalism already), in what is known as the August Decrees, sweeping away both the seigneurial rights of the Second Estate and the tithes gathered by the First Estate. In the course of a few hours, nobles, clergy, towns, provinces, companies and cities lost their special privileges. On 26 August 1789, the Assembly published the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen which comprised a statement of principles to be incorporated into a new constitution. Amid the Assembly's preoccupation with constitutional affairs, the financial crisis had continued largely unaddressed.

Fueled by rumors of a reception for the King's bodyguards on 1 October 1789 at which the national cockade had been trampled upon, on 5 October 1789 crowds of women began to assemble at Parisian markets. The women first marched to the Hôtel de Ville, demanding that city officials address their concerns regarding the harsh economic situations they faced, especially bread shortages. They also demanded an end to royal efforts to block the National Assembly, and for the King and his administration to move to Paris as a sign of good faith in addressing the widespread poverty.

Getting unsatisfactory responses from city officials, as many as 7,000 women joined the march to Versailles, bringing with them cannons and a variety of smaller weapons. Twenty thousand National Guardsmen under the command of La Fayette responded to keep order, and members of the mob stormed the palace, killing several guards. La Fayette ultimately persuaded the king to accede to the demand of the crowd that the monarchy relocate to Paris. On 6 October 1789, the King and the royal family moved from Versailles to Paris under the "protection" of the National Guards.

During the same time period the revolutionary sentiment was similarly on the rise across the border in the Netherlands. In 1786 the Emperor Joseph II began launching a series of liberal reforms in the Austrian Netherlands along the lines of those already introduced in other states of the House of Habsburg, such as the Duchy of Milan. His first reforms included a reform of seminaries in the provinces, followed was the abolition of the Council of Brabant (replaced by a supreme court) in which provoked widespread rioting and even a rising in Brussels known as the "Small Revolution" in May 1787. The suppression of this revolt allowed the Emperor to abolish the Joyous Entry and the rights of the Duchy of Brabant and the County of Hainault in June 1789.

In the Prince-Archbishopric of Liege the pro-Enlightenment François-Charles de Velbruck in 1772 became head of an ecclesiastical principality that had become particularly backward in its intellectual life and its scientific and literary studies. Velbrück's attempts to combat social problems like poverty or class inequality were many, but were unable to make a real effect on the deplorable situation. He tried to make changes in many areas, including public health, by setting up the Hôpital général Saint-Léonard to receive and assist the needy, a free midwifery course and establishments to deal with disease.

Velbruck was succeeded as prince bishop in 1784 by César-Constantin-François de Hoensbroeck, hostile to any reform, whose authoritarian rule fanned the flames of revolution. He tried to roll back Velbruck's reforms and reestablish the privileges of the clergy and nobility, having no sympathy for the liberal aspirations of the third estate or for his people's sufferings. He made himself highly unpopular and the principality's inhabitants nicknamed him 'the tyrant of Seraing' after the prince-bishops' summer residence.

The principality's middle classes violently opposed Hoensbroeck's regime, criticising his system as unrepresentative and parasitic, particularly in exempting the nobility and upper clergy from taxation. On 18 August 1789, Jean-Nicolas Bassenge and other democrats met at the hôtel de ville, demanding the magistrates' dismissal and their replacement with the popular mayors Jacques-Joseph Fabry and Jean-Remy de Chestret. The citadel of Sainte-Walburge fell to the insurgents and Hoensbroeck was dragged from his summer palace at Seraing to ratify the election of the new aediles. Some days later the prince-bishop fled to Trier in Germany.

Meanwhile, the insurgent nature of the Revolution was such that the principality was abolished and a republic created. The Estates of the former principality prepared a constitution, including equal taxation for all, the election of deputies by the people and freedom of work. A 'Déclaration des droits de l'homme et du citoyen de Franchimont' was also adopted on 16 September 1789, largely inspired by France's Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.

By 1789, the imperial government lacked the necessary means to respond to the instability in Brabant and Liege, as for about a year it's full military resources were committed to the Austro-Turkish War. The Emperor was unable to prevent political dissidents fleeing from his territory to the neighboring United Provinces to organize resistance. In the city of Breda, those who opposed Joseph’s rule over the Netherlands were able to form a kind of government in exile and to organize militarily. In addition to the United Provinces, these rebels were also supported in their goals by the rebels in the Principality of Liège following the prince-bishop’s flight to Germany.

Rebel incursions along the Austrian Netherlands' border with the United Provinces began in the Summer of 1789. On 24 October, a column of Rebel soldiers crossed the border into Austrian territory. After capturing the town of Hoogstraten on 24 October, one of the revolt's leaders, Henri Van der Noot, read a declaration of independence for Brabant known as the Manifesto of the People of Brabant and declared the Austrian government invalid.

The rebel army, led by Jean-André van der Mersch, moved further into the Austrian Netherlands and fought a battle with a numerically superior force at Turnhout on 27 October. Van der Mersch lured the Austrian force sent against him into the town and bitter street fighting ensued. After five hours of fighting, the Austrian force withdrew from the combat.

Following the Austrian defeat at Turnhout, riots began in major cities in the Austrian Netherlands. Unable to maintain control in the face of both the Patriot army and the rebels, Austrian forces retreated from the territory to the Duchy of Luxembourg in the south. On 26 December 1789, the state of Brabant declared its independence from the Holy Roman Empire in Brussels.

Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen



Citizens of Liege!
The German oppressor Hoensbroeck is on the move again, and threatens our beautiful Republican institutions. He wants to re-establish his dictatorial rule, and to end centuries of freedom in Liege. While Liege doesn't wish to bother its neighbours, and is willing to enter diplomatic talks with the Imperial Circle and the rets of the Imperial institutions, we won't let anyone shatter our liberty. This liberty is ours, and will forever stay that way. On this day, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of Franchimont will be adopted, and it will protect our liberties for centuries to come.

Onwards, Liegeois, we fight for freedom!



I. Men are born and remain free and equal in rights. Social distinctions may be founded only upon the general good.
II.The aim of all political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man. These rights are liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression.
III. The principle of all sovereignty resides essentially in the people. No body nor individual may exercise any authority which does not proceed directly from the people.
IV. Liberty consists in the freedom to do everything which injures no one else; hence the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits except those which assure to the other members of the society the enjoyment of the same rights. These limits can only be determined by law.
V. Law can only prohibit such actions as are hurtful to society. Nothing may be prevented which is not forbidden by law, and no one may be forced to do anything not provided for by law.
VI. Law is the expression of the general will. Every citizen has a right to participate personally, or through his representative, in its foundation. It must be the same for all, whether it protects or punishes. All citizens, being equal in the eyes of the law, are equally eligible to all dignities and to all public positions and occupations, according to their abilities, and without distinction except that of their virtues and talents.
VII. No person shall be accused, arrested, or imprisoned except in the cases and according to the forms prescribed by law. Any one soliciting, transmitting, executing, or causing to be executed, any arbitrary order, shall be punished. But any citizen summoned or arrested in virtue of the law shall submit without delay, as resistance constitutes an offense.
VIII. The law shall provide for such punishments only as are strictly and obviously necessary, and no one shall suffer punishment except it be legally inflicted in virtue of a law passed and promulgated before the commission of the offense.
IX. As all persons are held innocent until they shall have been declared guilty, if arrest shall be deemed indispensable, all harshness not essential to the securing of the prisoner's person shall be severely repressed by law.
X. Every citizen has freedom of thought and opinion.
XI. The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom.
XII. The security of the rights of man and of the citizen requires public military forces. These forces are, therefore, established for the good of all and not for the personal advantage of those to whom they shall be entrusted.
XIII. A general tax is indispensable for the maintenance of the public force and for the expenses of administration; it ought to be equally apportioned among all citizens according to their means.
XIV. All the citizens have a right to decide, either personally or by their representatives, as to the necessity of the public contribution; to grant this freely; to know to what uses it is put; and to fix the proportion, the mode of assessment and of collection and the duration of the taxes.
XV. Society has the right to require of every public agent an account of his administration.
XVI. A society in which the observance of the law is not assured, nor the separation of powers defined, has no constitution at all.

The United Kingdom

His Majesty's Government is appalled at the current situation taking place in France and the Lowlands. We hope that the situation stabilizes, and thus the United Kingdom will remain neutral in the near term. However, it will broke no aggression towards itself or its friends and allies by the French government.
