Holy Roman Empire (M2TW Faction)
Faction Symbol for HRE
Name: Holy Roman Empire
From Game: Medieval II: Total War
Culture: Northern European


The Holy Roman Empire starts in Europe's Middle Ground. The French are a threat to the West, The Danes to the North, Milan and Venice to the South and Rebels and Poles to the East. They are surrounded by opposing factions. Taking Prague (Rebel Occupied) can be a good strategic move on the way to strengthening your position. The Empire also has many other advantages in taking control of the land around them. Since they are the biggest starting faction, they can acquire much more income. With that income, many units can be recruited. Because of the rebels and their weak garrisons, the Empire can take control of 15 regions in 10 turns.
