The emperor of the HRE:
Alsace, Wurttemberg and Switzerland are interesting early targets and can be set as rivals. Potential allies are Austria, to prevent unlawfull territory and Milan, since it has an interest in Swiss land and no heir. The first war against Alsace should be fought as soon as possible to prevent the Palatinate from conquering it. While fighting against Alsace, there is a good chance the Palatinate declares war on them, which allows to fight a defensive war after vassalising Alsace. Taking one province from and vassalising the Palatinate strengthens the players position. The one province taken from the Palatinate allows further conquest north. Conquering Wurttemberg and then Ansbach allows to circumvent the southern city states and expand east. Wars against Switzerland will be supported by Milan, in exchange for land. Taking provinces in the French culture group will move the player into Frances focus. A buffer in form of a vassal allows to maintain good relations with France.
Becoming emperor as Baden is a realistic goal. It can be done either by allying or vassalising three of the neighbouring electors.
- There are 13 provinces with Swabian culture in the game 1444.
