Formation[edit | edit source]


Execute decision.pngForm Swabia

The old Duchy of Swabia ended with the execution of Conradin, the last of the Hohenstaufen Dukes, in 1268. Since then, a plethora of countries, bishoprics and free cities have emerged to fill the void left by the fall of the Hohenstaufens. However, these small states are often unable to protect their liberty - thus, the Habsburgs of Austria have built up considerable territorial holdings in Swabia, which they call "Further Austria". We must restore unity to Swabia if we are to end this pattern of outside encroachment.
