For the area, see Thuringia (area).

Thuringia is not available at the 1444 start. It only starts to appear in 1445, where it has the dynasty of Saxony. Thuringia is situated in North Germany, in the Holy Roman Empire. It is bordered by Saxony, Bohemia, Wurzburg, Hesse, Brunswick, Anhalt and Brandenburg. In the 1445 start it begins with three provinces. Saxony has cores over all Thuringian provinces. It is a tough start because of several large states nearby who will be interested in Thuringia's lands.


As country with Saxon primary culture Thuringia is able to form Prussia.
