Msg event.pngJanissary Coup

The following description is used if the ruler has the “Sheikh-ul-Islam” modifier or has a loyal Sheikh-ul-Islam:[4]
Great commotion was abound in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] today as the Janissaries, long discontent with what they see as the misrule of the empire by the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle], rejected the bread given by [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] and overturned their cauldrons in the central square. The Janissaries claim that [Root.Monarch.GetName] is a disgrace to the House of Osman, that [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] has made the Sheikh-ul-Islam his personal puppet and that he aims to destroy the military strength of the empire.
The Janissaries have now moved quickly to seize control over the government and have secured the support of many of the other political groups of the capital. While [Root.Monarch.GetSheHe] is still alive [Root.Monarch.GetName] is no longer in control of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] empire.

The following description is used in other cases:

Msg event.pngDeath of a [Root.Monarch.GetTitle]

[Root.Monarch.GetName]’s attempts to satisfy the Janissary coup-makers in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] has led to no avail, and now opposition to [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] rule has grown so great that they see [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] deposal as the only remaining solution. Having secured the support of other interest groups in the capital a large group of Janissaries today stormed the palace and captured the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle].
They paraded the sovereign through the streets of the capital and, waving a legitimizing fatwa from the Sheikh-ul-Islam, strangled [Root.Monarch.GetName] to death. [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] successor, still in shock from the day's events, has been brought out from the harem to be enthroned. It is apparent to all that the new ruler is little more than a puppet, and that order is far from being restored.

 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

Msg event.pngJanissaries Demand Advisors' Heads

As the House of Osman is highly revered, revolting troops are more likely to blame the ills of the state on the influence of advisors and favorites rather than the Sultan himself. The Janissaries are now demanding that we hand over several palace figures to them for execution, including numerous treasury officials blamed for paying them in impure coinage as well as the Chief Black Eunuch, a major intermediary between the Sultan and the world outside the palace.

The following description is used if the janissaries were disbanded while the country didn't have the modifier The Janissaries:
By forcing the inspection of all rolls of membership in the Janissaries [Root.Monarch.GetName] has finally managed to impose control over the corps again. All bad elements and non-soldiers are being weeded out of the system and will no longer receive state salaries or the status associated with being Janissaries. This is not something the former Janissaries take lightly however, while the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] has the authority to carry out these measures some are taking up arms against their former monarch.
