for trebizonde: political killing
-3 stability

Constantinople fall in april 1453, a part of the inhabitants of the city became refugees in Trebizonde.

for trebizonde: political refugees

when constantinople fall

-welcome them
--> population in trebizonde + 2000, + 100 gold, aristocraty +1 (i think only rich people can afford such a trip), stability -1

In 1456 Amaseia's ottoman governor, attacked Trebizonde, but could not enter the city, he just took a lot of prisonners, and ask the emperor a heavy tribut.

Jean IV try to make an alliane with the Khan of the Black Sheep, Uzun Hasan, to who he gives his daughter for marriage. In exchange, the Khan agreed in defending personally Trebizonde with all his men and all his ressources.

for trébizonde: Royal Marriage with Kara Koyunlu
1- offering the khan our daughter
=>event for Kara Koyunlu
2- No Way !!!
-->relation with Kara Koyunlu -50

If decision 1.
EVENT for Kara Koyunlu: Jean IV offer us his daughter
1- accept her and defend our new friends
--> Royal Marriage with Trébizonde, relation +100
I don't remember but there may be a command for Kara Koyunlu, to declare war every people who attack Trebizonde for 2 years.

2- We don't mind
--> relation with Trébizonde -50, Trebizonde got a casus belli against us for 3 month.

When he died in 1458, his brother David take the succession, and immediatly contact Philippe the good from Burgundy and pope Pie II
Mehmet II was upset and decide to finish Trebizonde Empire: In juny 1461, one ottoman army attack Sinope; facing the forces Mehmet II bring with him, David capitulate the 15th of august 1461.
