.)persia attacking in buenos aires
.)china owning provinces in india
.)marocco gaining land in france
.)iraq having two provinces in eastern europe
.)poland having colonies in madagascar and mocambique
.)scotland colonizing around the great seas
.)austria having colonies in south africa
.)the netherlands owning almost all of the indonesian region (well, this WAS history but however worth to mention)

How about the North American eastern coastline in my game? Countries that have colonies or trading posts there, by my count:

France
Spain
Netherlands
England
Denmark
Sweden
Hessen
Turkey
Persia (me)
The Knights (!!)
Venice
Nubia (!!!)

I think part of this came from Venice's extensive map getting spread to Turkey and its allies early. I got them when I sacked Thrace in an early war.

Poland-Lithuania controlling Oman was a shock for me as the Turks when I pushed into persia. No idea how they got there.

How about an Alliance between (get this) Portugal, China and the Inca Empire.

Later, when one of them was attacked, Portugal dropped out, leaving the Incas and the Chinese in an Alliance that lasted for decades.

A couple of my favorites;

8 province Hesse, 16 province Brandenburg, Georgians showing up in Roanoke to attack me. Baden deciding that the might of one province could overwhelm an alliance of Austria, Spain, Poland and France. Savoie colonizing St Helena.

As I mentioned in another thread my absolute favorite is Courland taking, and holding Romagne, and being in the top 5 for over 100 years.

Russia (My ally, I'm Austria) keeps coming to my aid leaving the motherland undefended. They are down to two provinces because of me. The Hanseatic League has taken all the rest.

Hanseatic League owning most of Russia.

My other ally, Savoy, seems to get 1 or 2 provinces every time I kill someone.

A 7 province Savoy.

That's the best I can offer. :)

Ragusa in the IGC

As Ragusa in the IGC 1.5, I had a dynastic event occur whereby the King of Hungary left no heirs and Ragusa inherited the throne. This was wierd bc Ragusa is/was still a vassal of Hungary! I also had another dynastic event whereby Lorraine was inherited by Ragusa.
