• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

Part VI: First Colonies & Netherlands

October 1449 we get a chance to become the elector. We accept.

Three months later we get another NI:

Time to start colonising!

Azores is colonized in November 1451. Two years later we discover Yucatan, a province owned by Zapotec:

Quickly they are annexed, and we get our first colonies:

Back to Europe:

France has eaten up and annexed Burgundy. Things are not looking good, and we decide to start bribing.

We diploannex Liege in 1458.

In May 1459 Johan III dies and Johan IV rises to the Throne. And guess what's the new heir's name?

Johan.

Anyway, when the time came, we formed Dutch nation. It happened on 22nd June, 1460:
