Back to Europe 1430



  • The first French troops land in Iberia. Empowered by the fresh French forces, the Spanish begin to succeed in defending their remaining territory. Meanwhile, British occupied areas begin to revolt against the invaders.
  • The king of Spain offers peace to the war-weary Federal Republic of Navarre. He offers to recognize them as an independent state and guarantee their independence if they agree to stop offensive, unprovoked, warfare against Spain. Even more, he also says that he will not only withdraw his forces from their territory, but grant them gifts in money to support their new government (If they accept the terms) and the right to deport Spanish nationalists and loyalists to the Kingdom of Spain, where they can serve in the Spanish army instead of causing trouble and instability for the new nation.
  • The Knights of St. John discover the island of Al-Hallaniyah in the Arabian Sea, claiming it for the Order. They rename it the Isle of St. Desiderius.
  • In southern Hungary, Slavic nationalists revolt against the Hungarians and declare the new Kingdom of South Slavia, placing their Serbian ruler in power as king.




  • The Union of Granada expands further into Andalusia.
  • The South Slavic revolt moves east, eager to unite all Slavs under the same banner. However, the Hungarian government begins to amass troops against them.
  • The Byzantine Empire, glad to see unrest in Hungary and seeking revenge after the Hungarians had sided with the Hussite League earlier, recognizes South Slavia. They also give permission for Slavs in their territory to migrate there. Many Slavs take up on this offer, overjoyed to have a nation of their own again after centuries of living under other nations.
  • The Knights of St. John, bored with policing the Mediterranean and in want of a revival in Crusading zeal, set off to establish an outpost near Africa. They also begin construction towards a massive fleet on the Isle of St. Desiderius.
  • Many revolts appear across the Sassanid Empire and Portugal when the South Slavic rebellion inspires many peoples who want their own nation.
  • With Portugal crushing revolt after revolt in Africa, Brazil, dissatisfied with renewed Portuguese control, claims that they have been violated and declare their independence.
  • Icelandic explorers begin to suggest expansion into the Canadian Arctic.
  • The Federal Republic of Navarre accept a peace with the Kingdom of Spain's terms, as their populance are tired of war. However, they demand all of historical Navarre. The Spanish, desperate for a stabilized front in the north, agree.




  • The Persian puppet shah, enlisting the help of Byzantium, Georgia, and Damascus, crushes all the poorly-organized and fizzling rebellions across the Sassanid Empire.
  • Portuguese troops are sent to secure Brazil, which is so large it has begun to descend into chaos as various tribes attempt to seize territory, and rival factions battle each other for control of the new nation and over the type of government. To make matters worse, Portuguese loyalists begin numerous campaigns of guerrilla warfare against the Brazilian officials.
  • The Knights of St. John discover the Socotra archipelago, claiming all the islands for the glory of Crusading. The local populations are quickly subdued through a show of gunpowder force, and the Knights begin to work on establishing outposts on each of the four islands.
  • The Spanish and French forces dig in stubbornly and refuse to budge under repeated British pressure. The losses on both sides are staggering, and even more so when fresh Spanish troops from Navarre arrive as reinforcements. The patriotic British people mourn their losses and begin to demand that the British Federation halt its needless and costly wars overseas.
  • The Union of Granada settles down to rule its conquered territory.
  • The Hungarians, unwilling to risk a war with the Byzantine Empire, conclude a peace treaty with South Slavia in return for granting the Slavs a stretch of territory.
  • The Confederacy of Tejan restores order in its territories by adopting a new policy of government. All previous provincial governors are executed and the confederacy adopts a more centralized form of government, sharing power between the National Assembly and the provinces.
  • South Slavia now with all the Slavs of Hungary declare the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
  • Navarre is accepted into the Eastern-Baltic Alliance.
  • A Scandinavian trading outpost is established on Malabo, while the Cape Verde islands are claimed and have begun to be colonized by Swedish, Scottish, Estonian, and Finnish settlers.




  • The Byzantines, always eager for a chance at business, ask Scandinavia to allow the Greeks to build a port on Malabo.
  • Major Spanish loyalist riots across northern Andalusia's occupied territory allow the Spanish and French troops to gain some ground against the British forces.
  • Portuguese troops restore order in Brazil after the flailing government is violently overthrown by the military and loyalist forces. Portugal decides to leave it as it is in order to free up their troops elsewhere and claim that they are granting independence to that part of their South American empire. However, Brazil is in reality turned into a puppet state, and remains a permanent ally and protectorate of the Portuguese.
  • The Byzantine and Morean crowns are fused into Byzantium's ruling dynasty when the emperor's brother is made duke of Morea. The Duchy of Morea continues to be nominally recognized as an 'independent' state, but is granted as a personal possession to each Byzantine emperor upon his ascension to the throne.
  • The Byzantine Empire hears of the Knights of St. John colonizing east African islands and begin to seek more about this strange new land. The Byzantine emperor thus dispatches several ships from the Persian Gulf in order to map and explore the East African coast.
  • Hedjaz declares war on Damascus, and starts invading its territory.
  • Damascus is paralyzed by the swiftness of Hedjaz advance (In the name of a Jihad), and the Kingdom of Jerusalem is subject to several feint attacks which prevent it from assisting its northern neighbor. Arab-sparked revolts in the unstable Sassanid Empire keep the Byzantines and Georgia busy and delays their sending aid, proving that the well-planned Hedjaz invasion was orchestrated from the start to isolate Damascus and its government.



  • Byzantine explorers reach the Knights of St. John and their African island outposts, where they stop to winter their fleet.
  • Damascus continues to look to its neighbors for help against Hedjaz, but they are still slow in responding. With their borders lax and the Kingdom of Jerusalem trying to fend off Hedjaz feint assaults at once, Damascus begins to succumb to the invasion.
  • Spanish and French troops continue their counterattack into Andalusia. British resistance is stiff, but growing weaker and weaker.
  • Hedjaz successfully defends from the Catholic armies of Damascus and Jerusalem when they attempt a counterattack. They are soon able to lay siege to the city of Damascus itself.
  • Damascus asks for a peace treaty with the Hedjaz. They will cede all Damascus south of the Beqaa Valley and the Euphrates.



  • The Hedjaz turn down the peace treaty with Damascus, since they is no bargaining on a Jihad of such a scale. The city of Damascus itself falls by the end of the year, and the king is executed. Meanwhile, as fellow Muslims, the Hedjaz offer northern Damascus to Kurdistan as a bribe for entering the war.
  • The Byzantines and the Georgians recoil in horror at the sack of Damascus. The Byzantines quickly leave small armies in Persia to clean up there, and hurry to liberate Damascus from anti-Christian rulers.
  • Kurdistan agrees to the terms and starts protecting the Hedjazi northern borders. The Hedjazi armies move south, with the intention of reaching Jerusalem.
  • The British forces of Andalusia take a stand and repulse the Franco-Spanish army. The Kingdom of Spain, nearing bankruptcy due to the war and having suffered much from devastation of the Iberian countryside, agrees to a white peace with Andalusia, leaving what remains of it in British hands. Meanwhile, they deport most British Andalusian citizens within their territory to Andalusia's new shrunken borders.
  • Byzantine explorers reach Africa after a trip totaling 564 days over the past year and a half. The natives prove friendly enough, and although several tribes are hostile towards the Greeks, they are quickly massacred. The Byzantines thus establish their first colony on the African continent, adopting it as the province of Majerteen.
  • Georgia and the Byzantines stop recognizing Kurdistan, and annex it, which they do easily. Then the Eastern-Baltic Alliance, along with the Sassanids, launch a massive attack that the citizens of Damascus describe as "Just like the glory of ancient empires!" Soon, the Hedjaz start to retreat, but fight on bitterly for the city of Damascus.




  • The Hedjaz resist tenaciously against the Byzantine, Georgian, and Persian forces attacking Damascus. They declare that the godless Christians and Zoroastrians will have to slaughter them to a man in order to take a true Islamic city.
  • The Byzantines send much more of its army into Damascus. At the same time, a popular insurgency in Damascus eliminates most of the Muslim army. The Muslim army heading for Jerusalem, unwilling to be caught between the Byzantines and the Kingdom of Jerusalem, is diverted to the rich plains of Mesopotamia.
  • The Hedjazi armies attack the Sassanid Empire, only to be destroyed by a combined Georgian-Persian army. Hedjaz also loses control of its remaining territories in Damascus. The Byzantines and Georgians ask for a ceasefire, and the exhausted Hedjaz agree. The Greeks then turn to restoring the old state of Damascus.
  • The Hedjazi lost the following in the peace treaty: Much of their northwestern territory will be ceded to Damascus to prevent another invasion of Damascus again and an annual tribute must be paid to the nations of the Eastern-Baltic Alliance to rebuild ruined Christian cities destroyed by the Jihad. Defeated Hedjazi forces then return to Medina.
  • Scandinavians finish (for the most part) colonizing Cape Verde and Malabo. Coastal areas of the OTL Gold Coast are beginning to be colonized, as is Gabon. The coastal areas are actually truly colonized; most of the coast is ~40% Scandinavian. The interior is only simply controlled by colonial troops.
  • A small Dal Raidan/Scottish/Irish group settles Grand Comore, and (a bit presumptuously) declares themselves the Republic of Erythaea. However, they are not all talk; several thousand radical Scottish rebels move there from Scotland and Tejan. Many displaced Hungarians also take some ships and land on Anjouan.




  • Having suffered relatively heavy losses in the recent war against Hedjaz, the Byzantines spend much of the year putting down revolts in the former Kurdistan. The emperor then attempts to revive the dropping morale of the highly-trained and well-equipped Greek forces, knowing that, for all their prestige and discipline, are worth nothing if no will to fight remains. Many of the Hedjaz war veterans are given pensions and plots of land in Byzantine Majerteen, filling the ranks of the colonists already there.
  • Several thousand Hungarians, Brazilians, and Scots move to the RoE. By now, most of the Comoros has been colonized, and several small settlements are appearing on Madagascar.
  • The Sicilians, rich from their control of western Mediterranean shipping lines through Malta, spend their money constructing a series of formidable fortresses on the Tunis coastline, connecting their domain through the chain of strongholds.
  • After a series of increasingly radical Iconoclastic emperors, the Patriarch of Constantinople is formally removed from the Orthodox Church. Constantinople becomes the new center for Iconoclasm, and the Patriarch and his clergy are granted Morea as the new center for traditional Greek Christianity. The old duchy of Morea is dissolved, and replaced by the Patriarchate of Morea, ruled in a similar fashion to the medieval Papal States.
  • Compass's begin needing adjustment more and more. Those that are not soon begin pointing 10 degrees east of north. If any devices exist to measure to the Earth's magnetic field, it will be shown to be getting weaker.
  • The Hedjaz decide to expand in another direction, absorbing many Bedouin tribes.
  • Byzantine Majerteen expands to occupy the entirety of the Horn of Africa.

  • The New Habsburg colony in the East Indies, made up mostly of French colonists rebels and declares for France. When word of this reaches the people of New Habsburg they are emboldened and rebel against the Habsburgs once again, seeking reunification with France. Britain, tired of the expense of aiding the Habsburgs offer lands and sanctuary in Britain if the Royal family wishes to flee, but no military aid. The rebellion is looking to be the worst yet, with much of the military taking the side of the rebels.
  • Unrest builds in Sicilian Tunisia, with little military and the population being loyal to the Tunez Republic the sicilian forces begin preparations for a possible rebellion.
  • Japan begins a new invasion of Korea.
  • Buganda expands to soon absorb all of the OTL Ugandan tribes.


  • The Sicilians deport almost all Tunisian natives to the Tunez Republic, unwilling to suppress a rebellion. They then try to resettle some of their people from the overpopulated Malta, mainly citizens of Sicily who had fled the onslaught of the Italians in the earlier war, in their Tunez territory.
  • The Habsburgs use their wealth hiring professional mercenary unit after professional mercenary unit from Germany and Bohemia to come to Neu Habsburg and impose martial law. They are prepared to suppress any rebellion, by force, if necessary. They also issue emergency orders to their garrison troops in their Asian colony to abandon it to the French and return to Neu Habsburg immediately.
  • Many Hapsburgs flee to various colonies, including the RoE. Several thousand of them set up settlements along the coast of Madagasgar and Tanzania.
  • Scandinavian troops march into Nigeria, taking the land and linking their colonial territories together. Colonies on the coast are beginning to spread inland, with many of the natives being displaced. Scandinavia establishes the Negro Reserve Territory, consisting of much of Burnika Faso, Niger, Mali, and inland parts of Nigeria, Togo, and Ghana. They begin deporting many tribes there.

Within the Province of Britain, the Districts of Scotland, Wales, and England are created.
  • Now that Britains economy is on a high once again, it turns to sort out Tejan. It invades from the north. The fragility of the Tejanese economy means there is little funding for anything but a civilian militia. At the same time, Britain offers land in Tejan to California and New West Venice. California, hungry for more land and New West Venice wanting a Pacific coastline to expand its trading opportunities, agree and invade.
  • Britain helps Sicily to set up a trading post south of the Scandinavian colonies. Horrible overpopulation in the Sicilian core territories mean the burgeoning colony expands rapidly.

  • After suffering repeated attacks from the Socialist Cretan government, the Knights of St. John finally withdraw from Crete. The Grand Master decides that he can no longer risk attacking another nation, much less a traditionally Christian one, due to the small size of the Order's army which is stretched over three islands and the minor African/Arabian holdings.
  • As European forces (including Dal Raidan troops and Navarran mercenaries) arrive to support the Scandinavians in defense of their colonies, the Kongolese are pushed back.
