I mean, they are pretty much all Hapsburgs somewhere along the line, but these are the sibling Hapsburgs, rather than the cousin Hapsburgs.
I will note that he is a very handsome boy and his mother is very proud of him <😠>
I should also remind people I have 4 mercenaries that must go.
How are people coming along with diplomacy? Do we need another couple of days?
Let’s wrap up by Tuesday evening and then run through announce deals.
Alright, probably time to start with announcing deals. We do this in impulse order, so @CraigM is first for the Ottomans.
Right. The Ottomans and the HRE have reached an accord for alliance. @Tom_Mc
Spain next I believe @Cuthbert
No deals for me. @Panzeh
Queen Liz is bethrothed to William of Orange. I’m sure that’ll last.
England makes peace with France
On to @Juan_Raigada
France confirms peace with England.
Over to @Tom_Mc
Confirming Alliance with Ottomans.
Announcing marriage of Charles II of Austria and Anna of Saxony.
William of Orange is eagerly planning his wedding to Elizabeth, which he is certain will go off without a hitch.
That concludes the announce deals segment. There are no leaders to ransom, so we move to Declarations of War, starting with the Ottomans. @CraigM
The Ottomans do not declare any wars. @Cuthbert
No declarations. @Panzeh
No wars @Juan_Raigada
No Wars. @Tom_Mc
No wars here either. @CF_Kane
No wars. On to spring deployment, starting with @CraigM.
Powers with multiple home cards (except Ottomans) will need to choose which home card to keep. HRE will need to select their religious preference.
Since I will be out for the weekend, I’ll need somebody to do my spring deployments.
Paging @CraigM for spring deploy.
