Decisions[edit | edit source]


Execute decision.pngReclaim the Archduchy of Austria

From Wien, the Habsburg once held absolute power of the Holy Roman Empire, and the very core of their power was the Archduchy of Austria. Now, their empire has long since turned to ash and it is left for us to reclaim the Archduchy and the seat of power in the Empire!

Regardless of the absence of a strong, central authority, our nation is prospering. The Hanseatic League, formed by hundreds of towns in northern Germany, has contributed to the prosperity of our nation. Intellectual growth, combined with sea and overland trading, has also helped spur the development and transform our country into a wealthy manufacturing center.

Execute decision.pngElevate Bishopric to an Archbishopric

As a Prince-Elector of the Holy Roman Empire we have a much greater political power than the title Bishop would normally imply. Let us make use of this influence to convince the Holy See to elevate our Bishopric to an Archbishopric.

Opening Moves[edit | edit source]

Wedged between two significantly stronger powers, Trent will struggle to rise to relevance in 1444. Generally speaking, attacking the Holy Roman Emperor as a OPM without allies is not likely to succeed, therefore Austria should be left until later, leaving Venice as Trent's primary target. Trent begins with Venetian culture already in their 'accepted culture' group. Ideally, Venice should be a rival of Hungary—in that event, Hungary may contemplate an alliance with Trent.

Austria may also ally Trent and potentially accept a call to arms against Venice, but this requires a significant number of extremely specific conditions to align when starting a new game: Venice and Autria will rarely if ever rival each other directly, so Venice must set the Papal States as a rival and take the Statute in Restraint of Appeals decision to damage Austria's opinion of them. When that happens, Austria may set the 'protective' diplomatic opinion towards Trent and an alliance can be offered.

The first war with Venice is generally not going to be easy. It's possible to wait for the Flag of Ottomans Ottomans to attack Flag of Albania Albania and draw Venice into a war they are exceedingly unlikely to win through their guarantee of independence for Albania, but there's also the off-chance that the Ottomans will choose to attack Wallachia then Hungary before targeting Albania. If Hungary is being relied on for Trent's major ally against Venice, then there is also a good chance Hungary will be distracted or have their manpower drained from other wars, or they'll fall under a personal union with Austria and break off any political ties they had with Trent.

Winning the first war with Venice and seizing some of their provinces in Italy will serve as Trent's "foot in the door" to becoming a major regional power. From there, things are less predictable.
