Introductions

A short history of the House of Wittelsbach.

The House of Wittelsbach was a German dynasty which originated in Bavaria. The home castle was located in Wittelsbach, hence the name. The House of Wittelsbach reigned from 1180 until the abdication of King Ludwig III of Bavaria in the German Revolution of 1918. Otto I “the redhead” was the first Bavarian ruler from the House of Wittlesbach, he ruled from 1180 until his death in July 1183. His descendants ruled Bavaria for the next 738 years.

Rules
Starting in 1066 as the Count of Niederbayern
Using the mod CK2Plus version .24 and CK2 Heraldry mod incorporated
Patch 1.04

Background
I had fun with my first attempt with CK2Plus version .17. Kind a interesting being the King of Bohemia. :mellow: I will try not to do that again.
What I want to do is take the House of Wittelsbach and see where I can go with it. Maybe form the German empire or try to do what was done in
real life history where Wittelsbach provided two Holy Roman Emperors, 7 Kings of various countries, and numerous counts, electors, and bishops.

Not sure if I've ever seen a Wittelsbach AAR - surprising, considering the historic prestige of the family! I read the first few updates earlier, but didn't have time to say good job and subscribe until now. :)

Cropping is your friend! Makes it easier to move from one important event/person to the next in smooth succession, allowing for greater absorption of your game. The occasional map, whether it be religion/cultural/political, after a significant change may attract more interest. People love maps.

Bavaria is always a fun place to play as, whether it be in CKII/EUIII/VICI or II.
