Naxos is a tiny nation inhabiting a collection of islands in the Aegean Sea. Their start as a vassal of Flag of Venice Venice and close proximity to the Flag of Ottomans Ottomans in 1444 ensure that their existence is usually short-lived. From 1579 onward, Naxos is no longer available at the start of the game.

Strategy[edit]

Being a remnant of the crusader states (much like Flag of Athens Athens) formed in the aftermath of the fourth crusade and the weakening of the Byzantine Empire, its main culture is Lombard and its religion is Catholic, while their capital and only province is Greek and Orthodox. While the chances of Naxos surviving are slim in the hands of the AI, it's not all that hard for a player to survive. Getting Venice's rivals to support Naxos' independence is usually quite feasible (Flag of Aragon Aragon, in particular, is of assistance, as they'll also bring Flag of Naples Naples into the fray) and with their help beating Flag of Venice Venice should not be a problem. An independent Naxos can choose to remain Catholic and Lombard, but shifting to Greek culture and embracing Orthodoxy is also an interesting possibility, as it would allow the player to attempt to form Flag of Greece Greece or Flag of Byzantium Byzantium.
