Msg event.pngThe Restoration of the Il-Khanate

Following a hard-fought campaign, the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] has called for a Kurultai at the recently conquered city of Soltanieh. An assembly of generals and lesser Khans gathers outside a most auspicious location; the Mausoleum of the Ilkhan Oljeitu.
Speaking before the Kurultai, [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] [Root.Monarch.GetName] raises the pressing question of how Iran is to be ruled; [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] gestures toward the Mausoleum and boldly proposes that the Ilkhanate should be restored. Invoking the legacy of the great Mongol Empire and the conquests of Genghis Khan, [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] makes a compelling case for the revival of the subordinate Khanate.

This event happens only once during a campaign.
