Holstein is a small two-province state situated in the far north of the Holy Roman Empire. Holstein starts as a vassal of Denmark. Holstein is one of the easier vassals that can gain Independence with Sweden being big enough to beat Denmark, this allows Holstein to also become independent if Holstein chooses to fight with Sweden in the war for independence.
