Description

Known as the Grand Duchy of Burgundy until 1703. With the change in government, the capital was moved from Dijon to Paris.

The Duchy preserved itself as a one region nation for many years, until the depredations of the Free Companies in the late 1650s led to the surprise (to Duc Lucas) wedding between his daughter and the Duc d'Orleans, thus doubling the size of the tiny nation. The chaos in Europe in the succeeding years provided both the need and opportunity for the Duchy to grow further.

Although the Holy Cross War gripped Europe from 1699-1721, Willem managed to follow in his predecessors footsteps and evaded, shall we say, "compromising entanglements" that would otherwise have drawn his precariously positioned nation into that bloodbath.

Still to be written.
