 Reform into Kurland

The Northern Crusade has long come to an end. Our Crusader identity will soon bring us no more than nothing and maybe one day, it will eventually become a burden... By secularizing the state and reforming it into a duchy which is led by the former Grandmaster and his knights - now the Duke and his vassals - we can rouse the state from decadence and ameliorate our diplomatic situation.
