 The Swiss Cities and Savoy

The balance of power in Geneva is held in part by the [SAV.Monarch.GetTitle] of [SAV.GetName], and in part by the Grand Council of Geneva. At any moment though, [SAV.Monarch.GetTitle] [SAV.Monarch.GetName] may wish to exert more pressure on our nation and dissolve the democratic powers afforded to Geneva. There are other powerful cities under the same rulership, and perhaps by forging the right alliances, our influence over the Swiss states of Savoy may grow greater than even [SAV.Monarch.GetTitle] [SAV.Monarch.GetName]...

 Geneva Requests an Alliance with Swiss Cities

We received word today that the Grand Council currently ruling Geneva has reached out to some of the other Swiss cities officially ruled by [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] [Root.Monarch.GetName]. If we allow the Grand Council to grow their influence among the Swiss cities, the rightful rulership of [Root.GetName] in the region will begin to come into question, and the cities will likely conspire against us. We could, of course, put a stop to the Grand Council’s power with a little show of force against [GNV.Monarch.GetTitle] [GNV.Monarch.GetName].

 The Savoyard Response

The response of [SAV.Monarch.GetTitle] [SAV.Monarch.GetName] to our reasonable request has shook the officials within our nation. To our shock and horror, the head of [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] [Root.Monarch.GetName] was delivered to the Grand Council Chambers by a Savoyard official. This response from the [SAV.Monarch.GetTitle] will surely do little to ease the tension between our nations.

 The Fate of Geneva

The Dukes of Savoy throughout all of history struggled to keep the Grand Council of Geneva satisfied, and once again we find ourselves agitated by the state of affairs in the [SAV.GetAdjective] [SAV.GovernmentName] and we wish to break free. Our recent positive relations with Switzerland has given us the opportunity to slip away from Savoy to join the Swiss Confederation. While this will upset our former overlord, the Swiss are well-equipped to protect our interests.

 The Fate of Geneva (Swiss)

An official from the Grand Council of Geneva has approached us today requesting to join the Swiss Federation. Geneva is a subject state of [SAV.Monarch.GetTitle] [SAV.Monarch.GetName] of Savoy, and as such, accepting such a proposal would greatly upset [SAV.GetAdjective] officials and may lead to war."

 Paracelsus

Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, who would later take on the name Paracelsus, was a Swiss physician and scientist credited with many important discoveries, primarily in the fields of medicine and chemistry. However, his most important legacy was his critique of the scholastic tradition of relying on ancient Greek philosophers as authorities on nature and medicine. He instead promoted observation and experimentation as sources of understanding. In addition, his lectures were given in German to make medical knowledge publicly available, something that further angered the academic establishment. Much of his life was spent traveling throughout Europe, both as an itinerant physician and as a Venetian army surgeon. In 1541 he came to settle in Salzburg where he died within a year.

 The Swiss Confederations

[Root.GetName] itself is not officially recognized as a nation, not even by itself. The Swiss cities are reichsfrei of the Holy Roman Empire and answer directly to the Emperor. The [Root.GetAdjective] Confederation is merely a cooperative military and trade agreement between Swiss Cities. Several such agreements exist amongst the Swiss, including our neighbor: [TTL.GetName].\n\n[TTL.GetName] is a confederation of independent Cantons in mutual cooperation, and perhaps by offering to work alongside them, we may begin to unite all Swiss Cantons into a single state.
 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

 John Calvin

As the reformation tears its way through Europe, the unity between the Swiss Cantons is beginning to break down. As each Canton chooses its allegiance in the conflict between the Protestants and the Catholics, the conflict of religious warfare continues to stain our land with Swiss blood.\n\nA preacher by the name of John Calvin has been preaching on the streets of Geneva. Throughout Europe, he has been preaching his unique interpretation of the reformation, attesting that all humans are born in total depravity from the moment they are born and it is only through the grace of God that they may be free from vice and sin.\n\nAs of late he has been gaining quite the sizable following within our nation, a following large enough that he may well supercede the authority of [Root.Monarch.GetName].
 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

 Calvin Returns Geneva

In spite of his banishment from the city, we have been told that John Calvin has reappeared on the streets of [4720.GetName] spreading his faith. Many are expecting another swift banishment, but perhaps [Root.Monarch.GetName] feels more sympathetic regarding the nature of Calvin’s faith.

 Calvin Becomes Spiritual Leader of Geneva

The reformer John Calvin has been spreading his unique religious views in Geneva for many years. As our nation turns more and more against the Catholic church, the desire for a spiritual leader in Geneva grows. The majority of the Grand Council has voted to create such a title and has appointed John Calvin to the position. [Root.Monarch.GetName] has the authority to intercede in the council’s decision and remove Calvin from power, but doing so would greatly upset the Reformed population living in [4720.GetName]

 The Diminishing Power of the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle]

For years now, the seat of power in our nation has been shared by our secular leader [Root.Monarch.GetName] and our spiritual leader John Calvin. As the Reformed faith has grown to be an overwhelming majority in our country, those who still believe in the power of the [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] have become few in number, and more people recognize Calvin as our head of state. Outside of our borders, Calvin has gained followers from all over Europe and many of his influential followers come to [Root.Capital.GetName] to meet with Calvin without even sparing [Root.Monarch.GetName] a passing glance.

 Champions of the Hundred Years War

While the English and French butt heads in their pointless war, the Swiss mercenaries providing their services in the conflict are beginning to grow quite a reputation. For most nations, being a soldier is merely a part-time job, but our highly-trained mercenaries fighting in the war are shocking both the French and the English with their masterful tactics and brutal methods in bringing victory after victory for their contractors.

 The Mercenary Monopoly

Throughout European history, the most desirable mercenaries have been those who call Switzerland their home, and those from Swabia. Now that there are no more independent Swabian states from which to purchase Condottieri, the demand for Swiss mercenaries has only increased. This monopoly we hold on mercenaries will allow us to charge even greater rates for our armies and the lack of Swabians to challenge our dominance will only further the frightening reputation of our mercenaries.

 The Helvetic Republic

As we spread the revolution through Switzerland, we are presented with the unique opportunity to reorganize the Swiss Federation into a government more akin to our own. By establishing a Helvetic Republic out of the ashes of the Swiss Cantons, we may bring an end to the conflict between our nations and spread the revolution to Switzerland.

 The Helvetic Republic (Switzerland)

As the fires of the [From.GetAdjective] revolution burn their way through Switzerland, the old ways are swiftly fading into a new modern and centralized government. We can no longer call ourselves the Swiss Federation, for no longer are our Cantons independent and free. The continued occupation of revolutionary forces has caused a drastic shift in our government, and we too must now pledge our loyalty to the Revolution.
