one more to break the tie
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

"PERSERVERO BELLVM"


Manuel's eldest daughter.

As the grand armies of Manuel II took control of what the Ottomans once held in Europe, it became increasingly clear that this was not a world receptive to the creation of a second Roman Empire. There were many distinct states; many distinct peoples. The emperor in his wisdom decided that many of these people could become one with the empire naturally. As the news of victory after victory ripped across the Balkans, Manuel II sent in their wake his daughters. They quickly married themselves to the princes and kings of Wallachia, Serbia, and Albania, which had just became an independent entity after the wave of rebellion. The nations of the Balkans received this intermingling of our empire and their youth with warmth. There is no doubt that they still crave the glory of the last millennium.


Raiders in the northwestern Balkans.

In Greece, the Golden Horde, allies of the Turks, continued what raiding they could in lieu of the turning tables. For several weeks they held major cities in Morea, but were quickly driven out by Hektor Torkines, the older of the two brothers. In the north, his brother secured the territory of Nis, west of Bulgaria, and moved to garrison Constantinople. An army was preparing to move into Anatolia, but an unfortunate event has taken place. The sizable Ottoman fleet has taken to the water between their land and ours, blocking passage. To construct a fleet would be too great of a challenge in the short term. Peace would surely made before then.

Alas, though, my chapter of this history comes to the end. It was this day that his glorious majesty, emperor of the Romans, died. His son Andronikos V would carry on this legacy. Long live Andronikos!

Andronikos V

The death of Autokrator of Roman-blood, Manuel the Second, occurred at the most horrific time. The great new Empire we have strived to create, lives in chaos, as our large scale crusade burns holes in the patchwork frame of the Mohammedan Turk's savage, false empire. Oh graciousness of Our Lord, and Our God, that we might be given the strength to live on, and watch the scourge burn in its eternal torment... And yet! This dream may come to further fruitition through the leadership of his son, Andronikos V may lead us to our place in the sun above the Turks!
First Entry of Great Chronicler Gaius Proletian

The month of December brought a great change in the tide of the war. The invading Mohammedans from the north were expunged from the south of Macedonia, and they attempted to flee to their ships, as the Turkish captial, Edirne, was finally besieged by the glorious Latin forces, fighting for God.

Invasion Forces, Massing on Edirne.
 The Crusade was beginning its drive into the Turkish peninsula, but the mass movement of the heathen navy prevented our passage to the provinces across the strait, into the heartland. Our presence their seems unecessary at the time being, as powerful rebel armies mass in Turkish cities and villages. They have the will of their people on their side, and it pushes them onward, conquering more of their land. Smaller, but still heathen, city-states arise in the ashes of the rebellions, but many are being squashed. The collapse of the capitol is bringing a hammer onto the heads of their armies and commanders.

In news not relating to the Crusade, Bulgaria began charming us with alliances and soon, we accepted, bringing their glorious nation into our fight. Our nobility entwined through a royal marriage between one of our Vestētōrs, Helio Merti, and a Bulgarian noblewoman.

2157 AUC

The Ottoman-Byzantine War, or The Fifth Crusade

Our war has driven the Mohammedans to their brink, but now has reached an impass. We cannot move east, due to the massive heathen navies, but we may hold out against the foe.

To hell with the Ottomans! Get some Merc and drive them to the desert!
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Bump, and can't you see? I can't cross to the Turkish peninsula. They are blockading the passage. :(

EDIT: The flags represent armies, and the slightly larger ones in the water are units. Sorry for the confusion.  :-*
