    [–] [2000x1333] Flag of a Bulgaro-Romanian Empire. (some more info in comments) Krizerion 7 points ago in vexillology

    So this is my idea of a Bulgaro-Romanian independent kingdom/empire that existed during late 19th and early 20th century, before it was dissolved during WW1. It is a direct descendant of the Second Bulgarian Empire and never fell to Ottoman rule. The Second Bulgarian Empire in our timeline was a medieval Bulgarian state that existed between 1185 and 1396. The name most frequently used for the empire by contemporaries was Bulgaria, as the state called itself. During Kaloyan's reign, the state was sometimes known as being of both Bulgarians and Vlachs. In modern historiography, the state is called the Second Bulgarian Empire, Second Bulgarian Tsardom, or the Second Bulgarian Kingdom to distinguish it from the First Bulgarian Empire. An alternative name used in connection with the pre-mid 13th century period is the Empire of Vlachs and Bulgars; variant names include the Vlach–Bulgarian Empire, the Bulgarian–Wallachian Empire, or the Romanian–Bulgarian Empire;

    In the alternate timeline, the crusading forces of King Władysław III of Poland and Hungary and the King Ivan Shishman of Bulgaria and Wallachia defeated the turks near Varna in 1444. The Ottoman Empire didn't manage to recover fully. The successfull siege of Constantinople in 1453 was the last major victory for the Ottomans. During the 15th and 16th century, there were more than 15 wars between the Second Bulgarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire with almost no border changes in the region.

    Meanwhile the Hungarian state was busy with numerous wars against the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Kings of Poland (with the missing Ottoman threat) were focused to restore the personal union they had with Hungary before 1444.

    The main problem with the Second Bulgarian Empire was that the Bulgarians were having much more power than the Romanians in the state. Thus almost led to a revolution and a civil war, but the things were settled peacefully with the creation of a dual monarchy called Bulgaro-Romanian Empire.

    I beleive I can write much more detailed alternative history scenario with more adequate facts, but it would take me more time than those 30 minutes I have spent now. Kudos to one of my best friends (which is Romanian) who helped me (I am Bulgarian) with some ideas.

    Actually it's perfectly spelled if you read it on Bulgarian

    [–] Kul Tiras is based on the Orkney islands in Scotland Krizerion 4 points ago in wow

    I believe that you don't have casus belli anymore, since the claim was not permanent. Also they culture converted the province so you will get negative modifiers if you own it.

    [–] "some countries have armies, the prussian army has a country"-dude,some Krizerion 13 points ago in eu4

    The Sacred Band of Thebes were considered the most elite fighting force in Greece until Phillip of Macedonia, Alexanders father, defeated them. It is a unit consisting of 150 male couples, each pair consisting of an older erastês (ἐραστής, "lover") and a younger erômenos (ἐρώμενος, "beloved"). Polyaenus describes the Sacred Band as being composed of men "devoted to each other by mutual obligations of love".

    “And if there were only some way of contriving that a state or an army should be made up of lovers and their beloved, they would be the very best governors of their own city, abstaining from all dishonour, and emulating one another in honour; and when fighting at each other’s side, although a mere handful, they would overcome the world. For what lover would not choose rather to be seen by all mankind than by his beloved, either when abandoning his post or throwing away his arms? He would be ready to die a thousand deaths rather than endure this. Or who would desert his beloved or fail him in the hour of danger?” - Plato, Symposium
