And Now He is King!

I have decided that Stagonia deserves its own blog. Previously it had been just a minor sidelight on my major blog -- Saxe-Bearstein -- but now it needs its own blog because its ruler, Maurice von Hirschbock has declared Stagonia to now be a Kingdom.

Of course he is mad. Originally he was simply Graf Maurice von Hirschbock; then he decided he was PfalzGraf Maurice von Hirschbock; but now he has named himself simply Koenig Maurice. Of course, this is a most vile thing to do . . . but then, what is the guiding light of Stagonia if not vileness?

Thus, the Kingdom of Stagonia officially joins other 18th century imagi-Nations. It occupies the same space as Bavaria -- immediately to the west of Saxe-Bearstein (which co-insides with Bohemia).

The armies of Stagonia will be uniformed much as those of France -- just as Saxe-Bearstein's troops are modeled on those of Hanover. Thus, while the location is different, our fights might well be mistaken for those of the western front of the Seven Years War.

Stollen's ministers always knew there was a dark side to King Maurice. Just how low will he sink? Does his depravity know no bounds?
