id

Msg event.pngThe $ESTATE_NOBLES$ Seize Power

$MONARCH$ has allowed the $ESTATE_NOBLES$ of $COUNTRY$ to grow too powerful and now they have made their move. Exercising the wide range of privileges and rights granted to them, they have effectively seized the reins of government and turned the $MONARCHTITLE$ into little more than their puppet.
 
Trigger conditions

Is triggered only by

the start of Disaster.png ‘Aristocratic Coup’ disaster.

  • National tax modifier.png −25% national tax modifier,
  • Trade power.png −25% global trade power,

End[edit]

The disaster can only be ended by the following decision.[2]

id

Execute decision.pngCurtail the Nobility

Our government is run by and for the aristocracy. To adopt a more centralized administration we will need to curtail their power and privileges.

  • has any of following modifiers:
    • “Nobility in Power”
    • “Junker Dominance”
    • “Ümera Dominance”
    • “Shizu Dominance”
    • “Dominance of the Bushi”
    • “Amir Dominance”
    • “Mamluk Amir Dominance”
    • “Dominance of the Boyars”
    • “Nobility in Power”
Allow

The country:

  • Stability.png Stability is at least 1.
  • does not have rebel armies in its provinces.

id

Msg event.pngThe $ESTATE_NOBLES$ Curtailed

We have managed to limit the influence of the $ESTATE_NOBLES$ to tolerable levels. $ESTATE_NOBLES$ privileges have been revoked and their properties reduced. The $ESTATE_NOBLES$ themselves have grudgingly agreed that the $MONARCHTITLE$ is the undisputable leader of this country and the stamp formerly used by the $ESTATE_NOBLES$ in place of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] signature has been destroyed.
 
Trigger conditions
