The cities of Lübeck, Flag of Bremen Bremen, and Flag of Hamburg Hamburg are all members of the venerable Hanseatic League, a once-mighty confederation of trade interests along the Baltic Sea which has since fallen on hard times. Although these Hanseatic cities do not enjoy the majesty and riches they once had, they still have considerable mercantile power at their disposal, and their treasuries are nothing to scoff at.

Although the Hanseatic cities still have some muscle, they have much to do if they wish to restore the old glory of the Hansa. Flag of Denmark Denmark introduced tolls on use of the Sound between Sjaelland and Scania in 1429, and these Sound Tolls are throttling the last remnants of Hanseatic trade in and out of the Baltic. If commerce is to prosper once more, the Danes must learn the error of their trade policies. Further east, the city of Visby on the island of Flag of Gotland Gotland was once a formidable and rich Hanseatic town, but a Danish attack on Visby in 1361 and various following depredations by Danes and pirates ruined the city's wealth and autonomy. The recovery of Visby and conquest of Gotland would be a key moment in the revitalization of the Hanseatic League.

The Hanseatic Cities cannot ignore German affairs, either. The free cities of the League owe their allegiance to the Holy Roman Emperor and enjoy “Imperial Immediacy”, able to deal directly with the Imperial court rather than working through various regional organs. Although the Imperial authority.png Holy Roman Empire guarantees the independence of the Hanseatic cities for now, any effort to centralize the Empire could become a dire threat to the future of the cities and to the League.

Lübeck is a trading nation located in northern Germany, bordering both the North Sea and the Baltic.

Msg event.pngTagfahrt


As a new ruler, it is customary to hold a Hansetag where the league's members are invited to participate in the central meeting.

This Hansetag brought up some issues with the trade, the economy and the military. As the envoys haven't managed to reach a conclusion as to which of these matters we should address, and although the consensus-building at the Hansetag is supposed to follow the Low Saxon tradition of Einung, it is our duty to decide which matter to address.
