Keeper of the Converters
- Feb 27, 2009
More revolts! The Romans just can't get a break! Who was Konstantinos' heir again? :blush: Your forces now have to be deployed on three seperate fronts, right?
Revolution is the Roman way! That and political infighting. This rebellion fell quickly, but there's a few fronts open otherwise. Still, I've lots of Legions to put where I need.
I didn't mention the heir's name yet. It'll be in the next update.a
I would personally protest to calling the Byzantine armies as legions, since the legion system was completely disbanded by the end of the seventh century and had taken a completely different structure in later Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, just my aside on the ongoing gripes I have with Paradox on the subject I study and write on!
In this case, that's a relatively recent reform. In the CK2 era, the retinue was named the Scholai Palatinae (even when they grew to tens of thousands, or were completely destroyed and reformed). At the point of conversion, they reorganized as local Themas, and in the late 15th century reformed as Legions along with some other changes.
In the same way, the political system is a bit weird, as I had a period of extreme low crown authority, which I took to be the formation of a feudal hierarchy type thing. Matters have been reformed since then, but the nobles have family memories of having near-total local power.
Either way, it's natural causes for an Emperor!But more revolts and civil war, now we're getting somewhere!
Well, since the emperor is found dead in his room, this means either two things... he was either poisoned or his heart simply gave out! :rofl:
