THE WAR OF THE SPANISH SUCCESSION (1701-1714)



The conflict was centered over, the French King, Louis XIV's attempt to seat a Bourbon ( His own grandson Phillip of Anjou) on the vacant throne of Spain.
This would have created a Bourbon super-state in Europe.
Opposed to Louis's, The Sun King's, attempt to install his own grandson as the Spanish King was an alliance led by the Holy Roman Empire who put forth their own candidate the Archduke Charles, a younger, son of Emperor Leopold I. 
War broke out in 1701 when Phillip of Anjou was proclaimed Phillip V of Spain.
Joining the Holy Roman Empire in the struggle against Bourbon France and Spain were Great Britain, Holland (United Provinces), and Hesse-Kassel. Bourbon Spain and Bavaria, under Maximillian Emmanuel II, joined France. The war saw great clashes and the emergence of two major military leaders in the cause of the Holy Roman Empire: John Churchill, First Duke of Marlborough who led a small British army over to the continent but won great victories at Blenheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde and Malplaquet and his Holy Roman Empire colleague Eugene of Savory.

More background here: http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/wars_spanishsuccession.html

We also decided (after seeing the extent and possibilities of our map) to include the Great Northern War (1700-1721). and including this conflict allows us to present additional factions and to increase the scope of the mod to cover a very important part of Europe's history and development with the story of Sweden's decline as a great power and Russia's rise. Also a very small Germanic state went from being a duchy in this period to a kingdom and one whose rise would shape Europe over the next 170 years...Prussia.

Thanks Raddy! We've got a lot of the research done on factions, uniforms etc. And the addition of Cel was a pretty cool development. If we can get a decent map I think we're in good shape. But we'll keep plugging away as we can.  :D

Thank you! Believe me we have a large file of resources of uniforms for this conflict but we appreciate any suggestions that we should get!  :D Naval Battles? Well there would have to be right? Yes I think we will include some ports where ships can be purchased and they will be in key seafaring areas. Probably will be "close and board" fights similar to 1776 mod.
