Msg event.pngThe Ambrosian Republic

The city of Milan was thrown into confusion by the sudden death of the Duke without a respected adult heir. Influential citizens believed that the old republic could be restored. Learned bodies, such as the College of Jurisprudence in Pavia, painted the days of the old republic as a golden age. The merchants, viewing the prosperity of Republican Venice, were behind the idea. A republic was declared, the claimants to the throne driven out of the city. The new republic was named the Golden Ambrosian Republic, named after the 4th century Bishop of Milan.

Msg event.pngThe Milanese Succession (for Milan)

With the throne of [Root.GetName] left vacant, both the [FRA.Monarch.GetTitle] of France and the Emperor are openly discussing their claims to the Duchy. The French claim is predicated on marriages ties to the old Visconti dynasty. Though the claim is not strong, France has had designs on Italy for quite some time and there are few with the strength to resist the [FRA.Monarch.GetTitle]. The Emperor meanwhile contends that in the absence of a clear heir, the title of Duke is to be conferred upon the Emperor by Imperial law.

Milan has fallen into political chaos. The throne is vacant and an upstart Republic strives in vain to establish order. This would be an excellent time to enforce our claim to the Duchy of Milan, predicated on our marriage ties to the now extinct House of Visconti.

Msg event.pngThe Milanese Succession (for the Holy Roman Emperor)

Milan has fallen into political chaos. The throne is vacant and an upstart Republic strives in vain to establish order. By Imperial law, the title of Duke ought to pass to the Emperor [Emperor.Monarch.GetHerselfHimself] when the line of Dukes is extinguished. If we wish to impose this law and claim Milan for ourselves, we must act quickly to depose the so-called Golden Ambrosian Republic.

Msg event.pngA Proposition for Sforza

Event trigger.png The description below is one of several available for this event.

Francesco Sforza is one of the greatest military generals of our times, and a prominent condottieri leader. It is most unfortunate that we find ourselves at odds with him in our war against Venice. Sforza is popular among the Milanese people however, and even has a claim to the throne.

A faction within the divided government have written to Sforza with a generous offer; if he abandons our enemies and joins our cause, Milan would offer him the province of [sforza_promised_province.GetName] as well as a position as a Captain and Defender. Sforza could be a great asset to the Republic, but many question whether his loyalty to Milan will trump his personal ambition.

Msg event.pngSforza Clashes with the Republic

Sforza has many rivals within the Golden Ambrosian Republic. The more idealistic and scholarly politicians who founded the Republic suspect him of conspiring to seize the throne, while more pragmatic politicians resent his popularity among the people.

Sforza has recently learned of a plot to deprive him of his military command and eject him from his position in government. Outraged, Sforza issues an ultimatum to the state: accept his absolute military rule, or face him once again on the field of battle.

Msg event.pngSforza Seizes the Throne

Ever the ambitious opportunist, Sforza has betrayed the Republic and declared himself the rightful Duke of Milan! His popularity with the people and iron grip over both the army and the mechanisms of state make defiance to his rule seem like a doomed prospect. Perhaps we must accept the return of the monarchy. Or perhaps liberty is worth any price.

Msg event.pngThe Death of Sforza

Grand Captain Sforza has died, suddenly and unexpectedly. His popularity with the people and iron grip on Milan’s politics were all that held the fledgling Republic together, and now the various factions of the government are fighting over their visions for the future.
Giorgio Lampugnano’s faction wishes to renew the ideals that our Republic was founded under, restoring democracy and ending military rule. Jacopo Piccinino’s faction, in stark contrast, argues that only a strong Captain General can hold the Republic together and resist its many enemies.
