Navarra is a one-province nation in northern Iberia. It is the only Basque nation in the game and starts off with the same dynasty as Flag of Aragon Aragon and Flag of Castile Castile, either of whom usually vassalize Navarra. Navarra is the only country that can form both Flag of France France and Flag of Spain Spain without culture shifting. Historically most of Navarra was incorporated into Flag of Spain Spain in 1512, while the northern part entered into a personal union with France in 1598, being merged into the kingdom proper in 1620.

Have a good strategy for Navarra?
+ Add it to this article and help other players!
Please note the style guidelines.

Since the Golden century patch, Basque in Golary achievement has been added, attracting many ambitious players to attempt. The basic strategy is to stick Castile and France at the start, so that the player could claim the Aragon Throne with allies (also Naples if lucky enough).

Afterwards, the player may plan to attack Castile by asking France for Iberian lands. Ideally, since Castile and Navarra share the same dynasty, it may be better to claim their throne instead of conquering them slowly.

Portugal and Moorish states are relatively easy targets, if you control Aragon (and Naples) as the player's partner.
