The Burgundian Inheritance [1][edit]

id

Msg event.pngMarie of Burgundy

It seems the line of [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] has grown rotten and withered with [Root.Monarch.GetName]’s final seed. [Root.Monarch.GetName] [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] has been incapable of producing an heir in all of his years as the last remaining male of the [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] line.

However, the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] did produce a talented and beautiful Princess by the name of Marie. [Root.Monarch.GetHerHisCap] father Philippe [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] famously despised Marie and insisted that no woman should sit the throne of Burgundy, but [Root.Monarch.GetName] is not his father and times are growing desperate. Should [Root.Monarch.GetName] die without producing an heir, Marie will become [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] de facto successor either way, but if [Root.Monarch.GetName] forsook the pursuit of a male heir and favored Marie as the rightful heir to Burgundy, her claim would be strengthened and we may be able to negotiate our way through this succession crisis with minimal strife.

Female heirs are seen as quite the prize for ambitious men, and Marie's succession may lead to Burgundy falling under a union with a foreign power.

Msg event.pngThe Burgundian Succession

It is as we had always feared, the Duke of [Root.GetName] has passed from this life to the heavens without producing an eligible male heir. With the Duke’s untimely demise, [Root.Monarch.GetName] [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] has ascended as the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] of Burgundy. However, with [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] claim relatively weak in the eyes of many noble lords and ladies, Burgundy is seen as ripe for the taking by the ambitious [FRA.Monarch.GetTitle] of [FRA.GetName] and [Emperor.Monarch.GetTitle] of the Holy Roman Empire.

[Root.Monarch.GetName] is a brave and intelligent young woman but if Burgundy is to survive this crisis without falling into conflict with one of the major powers, then [Root.Monarch.GetName] must marry into a prestigious royal family to seek their support and protection. Of course, [Root.Monarch.GetName] will be wed in a traditional patrilineal marriage so Burgundy will essentially be subject to a foreign nation, but in this time of great chaos, what choice do we have?

In spite of our strong claim on the [BUR.GovernmentName] of [BUR.GetName], [Emperor.Monarch.GetName] [Emperor.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] has refused to make any concessions to us and has declared [Emperor.GetHerselfHimself] the true successor to all of [BUR.GetName].

Msg event.pngThe Emperor Demands the Lowlands

With the death of the Duke of [BUR.GetName], the reforms that he passed which led to the close integration of the Lowlands with the rest of the [Root.GetAdjective] [Root.GovernmentName] have come back to haunt us. The [Emperor.Monarch.GetTitle] has sent an envoy, demanding that the Lowlands be separated from the [BUR.GovernmentName] of [BUR.GetName] and returned to their Princehood status within the Holy Roman Empire.

However, [Root.Monarch.GetName] is a cunning and wise [Root.Monarch.GetTitle], and has proposed to revoke the reforms of the previous ruler of [BUR.GetName] and introduce a Great Privilege. The Privilege would enforce that all cities in the Lowlands recognise [BUR.GetName] as their rightful [BUR.Monarch.GetTitle] but also remain loyal to the [Emperor.Monarch.GetTitle] of the Holy Roman Empire. Our scheme could of course backfire and the [Emperor.Monarch.GetTitle] could use this as a provocation for war, but there is also a chance that [Emperor.Monarch.GetTitle] [Emperor.Monarch.GetName] will be satisfied for now...

The response from the [BUR.GetAdjective] [BUR.Monarch.GetTitle] was not at all what we expected.

Many nobles of the realm are already bending the knee to the [burgundy_senior_partner.Monarch.GetTitle] of [burgundy_senior_partner.GetName], but many others are beginning to flock around a distant cousin to Marie and one of few surviving members of the Burgundian royal family. Should we submit, our [Root.GovernmentName] will be no more and we shall be annexed into the [burgundy_senior_partner.GetAdjective] [burgundy_senior_partner.GovernmentName].

Sad news reaches [Root.Capital.GetName] today as we learn that our beloved Marie, Duchess of Burgundy, has passed from this life into the next. A sweet and kind-hearted girl, and a loving wife to the [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] Prince, Marie will be sorely missed in the [burgundy_senior_partner.GetAdjective] court. Marie was a passionate horse-rider and accompanied her husband on his routine hunts, but her kind heart and passion for riding could not save her when her five-hundred-kilogram horse fell atop her and shattered her spine.

To our surprise, the lords and ladies of Burgundy have not immediately begun bending the knee to our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle], but have instead recognised a distant cousin of Marie’s as their rightful ruler. This is ridiculous, the law makes it clear that a [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] must succeed upon Marie’s death. It appears the mad nobles of Burgundy only recognise the language of violence and we shall have to enforce our lawful claim with blood.

Msg event.pngImperial Entrance

Our state originally owed its existence to the royal family of Burgundy who broke away from the French Kingdom in an attempt to press our rightful claim on the Throne of all Franks. We have thus far not opted to press our claim on the Kingdom of France and as such, our claim has long since grown cold. The notion of a truly independent Burgundy existing in perpetuity is laughable to many foreign nobles, and our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] has been advised by the royal council to seek entrance into the Holy Roman Empire and bend the knee to [Emperor.Monarch.GetTitle] [Emperor.Monarch.GetName] [Emperor.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] as an Imperial Prince.

The opportunities for Burgundy in the Empire are great, and perhaps one day we may even claim the Emperorship for ourselves...

However, integrating Burgundy into the Empire would completely dissipate the tensions between the Empire and Burgundy, and present the unique opportunity to expand Imperial influence into France.

Msg event.pngThe Shadow Kingdom - Incident start

While the Kingdom of Italy is still formally part of the Holy Roman Empire it has in many ways turned into a 'Shadow Kingdom', with the Italian states acting independently of the Emperor. The failure of successive Emperors to restore Imperial authority in the region has also left large areas under the control of states that outright reject Imperial Authority.\nBy now the question for many Italian states is why they should allow the Emperor any authority over their lands.

Msg event.pngSwitzerland and the Empire

With the end of the great religious upheaval that engulfed not only the Empire but also much of Europe, the cantons of Switzerland are reconsidering their increasingly loose relationship with the Empire. Though many fought and died for peace, the particulars of the settlement were not to the liking of Swiss elites and many are calling for the formal and total separation of Switzerland from the Holy Roman Empire.

The Reformers Protest [11][edit]

Msg event.pngThe Reformers Protest

The Princes that follow the Reformed faith are aghast that their efforts to thwart the cause of the Catholics have enabled the new Emperor to declare Protestantism as the Empire's official faith, even though they form a majority within the Empire. Led by [reformed_leader_country.Monarch.GetTitle] [reformed_leader_country.Monarch.GetName] of [reformed_leader_country.GetName], they have approached Emperor [Emperor.Monarch.GetName] demanding that the Reformed faith be given equal, if not greater, standing than the Protestant faith within the Empire.

Msg event.pngThe Question of Holstein

Though Holstein has long been ruled under the suzerainty of Scandinavian kings, it has now been incorporated directly into the [Root.GovernmentName] of [Root.GetName]. In an age defined by the growing authority of centralized states this is not especially remarkable, but in this case it has caused a serious diplomatic incident. While the Holy Roman Empire has been content for us to rule over the Duchy of Holstein, it remains legally and inseparably part of the Empire and most emphatically not a [Root.GetAdjective] province.

The [From.Monarch.GetTitle] has therefore demanded the restoration of the Duchy of Holstein, and further demands that all [Root.GetAdjective] authority over its territory must be relinquished so that Holstein can take its place among the Princes of the Empire.

The Hansa were once the undisputed masters of trade from London to Novgorod. Dominating the Baltic Sea from our home port of Lübeck, members of the League were blessed with wealth. Now though the fortunes of the Hanseatic League have fallen into decline. Infighting within the League and a series of economic crises have led to our merchants not even having control over the trade around Lübeck itself. A new power, [lubeck_trade_power.GetName], has supplanted the Hansa in its home waters and threatens to make the Hanseatic League obsolete.
