For the area, see Dalmatia (area).

Dalmatia is a formable nation in Europe, which can be formed by small countries with Dalmatian as primary culture or release from its cores which are owned by Flag of Croatia Croatia, Flag of Ragusa Ragusa and Flag of Venice Venice in 1444.

Missions[edit | edit source]

Main article: Croatian missions

Dalmatia uses Croatian missions when released from its cores, but forming it retains the missions of the previous country.

Formation[edit | edit source]


Execute decision.pngReunite the Kingdom of Dalmatia

When the other states of the Dalmatian Federation signed a pact with the Venetians, our people simply couldn’t follow them and fall under the influence of another foreign nation. Now that we have reconquered much of the old Kingdom, we stand in a position where we may abandon our isolated identity and consolidate the Dalmatian Federation into a single state, free from foreign hands.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Dalmatia. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

Starting as Ragusa[edit | edit source]

Experienced players going for the achievement can leverage their position in the tumultuous Balkans region early on by taking the provinces Spalato and Zara from Flag of Venice Venice. It is advised to either seek allies among Venice's rivals or timing the player's attack to coincide with Flag of Ottomans Ottomans aggression before starting a war of conquest. A successful land grab will allow players to form Dalmatia and gain access to its strong military ideas. From here, players have a number of options. Close proximity to the Holy Roman Empire allows players with good relations to the current emperor to reap the benefits of Imperial protection. Alternatively, advanced players could build a coalition with Flag of Hungary Hungary and dismantle the Ottomans early, waiting for them to become preoccupied with the Flag of Mamluks Mamluks before striking. Because Dalmatia's primary culture is in the Italian group, players will have the option to expand into Italy without incurring serious penalties. Starting as Ragusa also gives the player early access to a level two center of trade and completing Dalmatia's mission tree will give the opportunity to upgrade this to a level three.
