Glory on high! Grand Autokrator Andronikos V has chosen to destroy the Mohammedan dynasty!
_______________________________________________________________________________________

The cold sweat, blood, and toil of the workers has finally came to fruition! The first Grand Navy of Byzantium has been constructed! Our glorious ships of christendom have left the docks to deal well deserved deaths to the Mohammedans and Turks! Their blood shall stain the water as the children of the sea come to feast upon their bones!
Second Entry of Great Chronicler Gaius Proletian

The first true Navy of this Age, lead by the great Petros Diasorenos, rode out onto the backs of the eastern junkers, and quickly slaughtered them.

This feast for the fish, served a purpose, as it ended the blockade against our invasion of Turkey, and Bithnya and Bursa, on the Asia Minor coast, both welcomed our crusaders with open arms... after a bit of prying, of course.

The war at 2166 AUC

The 'Golden' Horde stood tall, and heavily militarized, yet their barbarian ways left them devoid of soul... but they still had a fight in them. The Ottomans, on the other hand, had been thoroughly through the beater, and were begging for a gracious peace.
 

This had not come without a price, and the two, now aging, brothers died on the sites of two different sieges.

The Final Decision

(Due to the Golden Horde's being the leader of the alliance, I couldn't annex the Turks. :()


Andronikos V is pleased, and he proudly flaunted his new power. Supporting a new, pro-Christian, Turkish sultanate of Trezbeiond, Andronikos had built himself a stable, if not useful, ally in the East. He also began to support revolts in Lower Greece, where a colonial power, Venice, and a local, heretical king, Achea, kept power. The revolts, unfortunately, ended in the reinforcement of the colonial power, and a reinstatement of power in Achea to be more for the people. Poor choice.

Remember, our goal right now is to take Greece. the conquest of Anatolia may come later.

Also, why did the Tornikes brothers have to die so soon.  :(

They basically were just very arrogant and not that much better than anyone else at all.

Not entirely. Archea may bend to our will and allow itself to be annexed in some years, but Venice controls Athens and the surrounding land.

Venice isn't going to freely cede that land. Instigated revolt and war are the only options.

Then we should send in the spies and just dominate them after a civil war. Or just get a BAMF ally like Austria to help us out... though that may cause us to lose some holdings. (What tech group are we? Latin or Eastern European?)

Instigating a revolt sounds fun.  Does Venice have any enemies we can convince/trick to declare war on them at the same time?

I don't believe we can cause them to go to war without joining ourselves.

The revolts could be useful though, as Athens is a single province separated from Venice by quite a bit of water. If we were to infiltrate the province and cause a patriot uprising, the patriots would be Greek and, if successful, most likely join the empire. The hope is that Venice will be incapable of sending a large enough naval force to combat the rebels once they occupy the province, which shares no borders with other Venetian territory or allies.
