Livonia is a small country in Baltic region. It is also the primary nation of the Latvian culture. Livonia does not exist in any of the starts, although it can be released or formed due to rebels.


Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Livonia. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

In 1444, Livonia begins with cores on four of the Flag of Livonian Order Livonian Order's provinces, Wenden, Dorpat, Latgalia, and Livland. Livonia can be released from the Flag of Livonian Order Livonian Order, however it is recommended that the player first move their capital to a province that is not a core of Livonia before releasing and playing as Livonia. One of the best methods to release and play as Livonia is to select Livonian Order, remove the province of Dorpat from the control of the Nobility estate, moving the capital of the Livonian Order to the province of Dorpat, releasing Flag of Estonia Estonia as a vassal (but choosing not to play as Estonia), moving the capital again to Mitau, and releasing and playing as Livonia. This ensures that Livonia gains as many provinces as possible during the release, and that the Flag of Livonian Order Livonian Order is as weak as possible to make declaring independence easier. Before releasing and playing as Livonia, it is best to decline all alliance offers, and also insulting all neighbors to ensure Livonian Order does not have many allies, to make declaring independence easier. After releasing and playing as Livonia, the next step is to declare independence. Flag of Estonia Estonia will usually be friendly, and will be willing to ally the player. If the Flag of Livonian Order Livonian Order does not have any allies, the player, with the help of Flag of Estonia Estonia, will usually be able to win the independence war, however, if the Livonian Order has at least one medium-size ally, it is usually necessary to get one of the other Eastern European powers, such as Flag of Poland Poland, Flag of Muscovy Muscovy, Flag of Hungary Hungary, or, if they remain independent, Flag of Lithuania Lithuania, to support Livonia's independence. After winning your independence from the Flag of Livonian Order Livonian Order, good routes for expansion include Flag of Riga Riga, Flag of Novgorod Novgorod, and the Flag of Teutonic Order Teutonic Order.
