A Strategic Marriage[edit]

id

Msg event.pngA Strategic Marriage

Ever since the 13th century treaty of Perth, Scotland has been obligated to pay a yearly sum to the Norwegian Kingdom in exchange for control of the Hebrides. These payments are by now long overdue, however, and this has been the cause for tensions on and off. Regardless of our ancestral claims, however, our ability to project power in the Highlands is not what it was, and we have bigger issues closer to home to handle. It has been suggested that this conflict be settled once and for all. The [SCO.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName]s will marry a member of the [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] dynasty and the Jarldom of Orkney will be pawned and then transferred to the Scots.\nOrkney remains one of the highest ranked titles in the Kingdom of Norway however, one that has at times been a stepping stone to the Norwegian throne. While they remain a weak factor the Norwegian nobility are very wary of this deal.
 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

Msg event.pngEarldom of Orkney - Scottish reponse

Ever since the 13th century treaty of Perth, Scotland has been obligated to pay a yearly sum to the Norwegian Kingdom in exchange for control of the Norwegian Hebrides. These payments are by now long overdue, however, and this has been the cause for tensions on and off. [From.GetName] has now suggested settling this conflict once and for all. The [Root.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName]s will marry a member of the [From.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName] dynasty and the Jarldom of Orkney will be pawned and then transferred to us.
Orkney is one of the highest-ranked titles in Norway and the one our own northern lands would fall under if controlled by Norway. If they give up these islands they will have surrendered the right to rule their former possessions forever.

Msg event.pngJarldom of Orknøyene - Norway under PU

Ever since the 13th century treaty of Perth, Scotland has been obligated to pay a yearly sum to the Norwegian Kingdom in exchange for control of the Norwegian Hebrides. These payments are by now long overdue, however, and this has been the cause for tensions on and off. Regardless of our ancestral claims, however, our new overlords have seen fit to end this conflict forever. The [SCO.Monarch.Dynasty.GetName]s will marry into their dynasty and the Jarldom of Orkney will be pawned and then transferred to the Scots.
Orkney remains one of the highest-ranked titles in our Kingdom, one that has often been a stepping stone to the Norwegian throne. If we give up these islands we will have surrendered the right to rule our former possessions forever.

Bergen riots[edit]

Msg event.pngBergen Riots

Olav Nilsson Skanke, popular commander of the Bergenhus fortress and a sworn enemy of the Hanseatic League in Norway has been killed by local merchants. Despite his long history of service to the crown Olav was also a pirate, hunting down Hanseatic ships all over the North Sea. In order to eliminate this threat to their interests the German merchants instigated a riot, cornering Olav in a local abbey and then burning it to the ground.
Olav met his fate in the flames together with monks, local burghers and the Bishop of Bergen. Needless to say this is an event that could enflame the already strongly anti-Hanseatic Scandinavian disposition.

Timber has always been a major export of the Norwegian economy and trade ships from the Low Countries have become an increasingly common sight along the Norwegian coastline.

With an ever growing demand from the Dutch shipbuilders the timber industry in Norway could well grow to be the biggest in Europe. As a seafaring and shipbuilding people we can undoubtedly learn a lot from the Dutch entrepreneurs by aligning with them against the Germans.

Msg event.pngIn Search for Iron and Copper

While Norwegian peasants have extracted copper and iron for centuries on a small scale there are no great iron or copper mines in our lands. This is contrasted by the thriving mining sector in the Swedish realm where great quantities of both metals have been mined, cast, and exported since the Middle Ages.
The Crown has recently acquired many pieces of land previously under the control of the Church and Nobility who did not have resources or inclination to search for metals. Let us invite experienced prospectors and miners and see what treasures lie beneath these mountains.

At the age of 15 young skipper's son Cort Adeler left Norway behind for the open seas and he has since made a career as a successful merchant captain in the lowlands, the mediterranean and even as far away as the Coromandel Coast in India. Having also acted as captain in times of war in Dutch, English, Venetian and Turkish naval engagements, Adeler is in possession of experience and contacts that few in his generation posses. Through his various mercantile enterprises he has acquired a considerable personal fortune, some of which he has invested in his home country, especially the estates he has begun to develop outside the Norwegian city of Skien.

Msg event.pngGreat Fire of Oslo

For three days fires have ravaged the timber city of Oslo and now all but a few buildings in our country's capital lie in ashes. While fire has haunted Oslo before the destruction we face now is so final that it has been suggested we should relocate the city entirely as we rebuild. Instead of building in timber and awaiting the next catastrophe it has been suggested that we rebuild closer to Akershus fortress, using sounder techniques of construction and city planning as befits a capital of our age.
Rebuilding closer to Akershus will also allow us to properly fortify the city, which can be of great benefit in these times. In practice previous rulers have found it hard to prevent the citizens of Oslo to rebuild in whichever materials and mode they wish however, so a proper renovation is likely to be very costly.

Msg event.pngDutch-Norwegian ties Strengthen

Over time the extensive integration of Norway into the economy of the rich cities in the Low Countries have led to a growing shipbuilding industry at home. Norwegian cities strongly tied to the timber trade are quickly growing bigger than ever before, with Norwegian, Dutch, Danish, Scottish, English and Swedish merchants blending together to create a cosmopolitan maritime environment.
Young Norwegian men have also begun to migrate in increasing numbers to the Low Countries. Some settle there while others continue onto the open seas. The growing number of Norwegian expatriates and those who eventually return to our lands are together immersing our country ever more deeply into the emerging global economy.

Msg event.pngPopulation Boom

Centuries ago the Black Death devastated our lands, killing over 60% of our population, leaving large parts of the countryside entirely desolate and crushing the growing cities of the late Middle Ages. Politically this made union with the other Nordic countries a necessity and economically it left us the poorest of the members. Over time, however, the country has begun to heal. Large areas of open land and a rising economy has encouraged migration into Norway and made it easier for second or third sons to claim more lands for their families. While many on the coasts chose to migrate to the Low Countries the Norwegian inlands are experiencing an unprecedented level of population growth.

Msg event.pngTensions between Miners and Locals

The influx of German miners and prospectors has in short time made small mining communities spring up all around our country even in areas where mining will never be the main source of income. These communities are, however, almost entirely small German colonies with German laws, customs and population. Surrounding Norwegian villages are required to provide the miners with food and other things they might need and this has over time lead to some tensions developing between the locals and the newcomers. In [hjartdal_standin.GetName] village upon village have begun to take up arms against the Germans, demanding that they leave and that Norwegian laws and customs be upheld.

Msg event.pngProclamation in [hamar_or_standin.GetCapitalName]

Worried about what they perceive to be an increasing encroachment on their privileges by the Danish Crown members of the Norwegian council and other prominents have gathered in [hamar_or_standin.GetCapitalName] to work out a number of demands upon the Crown for their continued support for the Union.
The demands put into print at [hamar_or_standin.GetCapitalName] include the restoration of lost Norwegian lands, affirming the traditional rights of the Norwegian church and nobility, strengthening the power of the Norwegian royal council, and in general affirming Norway's role as an equal party of Denmark in our Union. The intent is for the list of demands to be sent to [Root.Monarch.GetName] to be made part of [Root.Monarch.GetHerHis] traditional Håndfestning, the Electoral Capitulation, as [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] of Norway.

Msg event.pngDemands of the Norwegian Council

Together with a number of important persons in the realm the Norwegian Royal Council has sent us a list of demands that they feel must be met for Norway to accept the accession of [Root.Monarch.GetName]. According to the Council members the Danish crown have continued to trample the rights of the Norwegian people for too long and this must be reversed. If we do not agree they threaten to use their de jure power to elect another ruler.

A messenger from the Danish court has arrived with their reply to our demands. [Root.Monarch.GetName] refuses to meet any of them and has instead made a proposal of his own that addresses very few of our points of concern. Some feel we have no choice but to elect another ruler as is our right.
