Could Richard the Lionheart have prevented this from happening? Posted on May 22, 2023 by Anonymous Could Richard the Lionheart have prevented this from happening?
by not dying or castrating his brother
or having hot gay crusader sex with philippe just like in my fujo dreams
I've had way better runs in CK2
can you actually lose Bouvines in CK2? an HRE alliance is super powerful in that game, probably more powerful than it should be
The HRE is always massively overpowered in both CK2 and CK3 and ends up blobbing like crazy despite unstable inheritance, same as Byzantium despite the constant civil wars. Being an emperor in these games entitles you to a ridiculous amount of vassal troops, which is completely unrealistic.
Playing as Philip is a more fun and challenging start. I think last game I played I about accomplished his territorial gains in France as well as conquering Jerusalem and some other random area (Sicily?)
What's the point of conquering land when the game's demesne limit is tiny?
You can push it up pretty high eventually, with good traits and artifacts you can get crazy high stewardship and centralization laws help too. If you constrain yourself to have only one holding per county, you can have a pretty large demesne.
Of course that's not optimal and having many holdings in a single county is way more efficient, but still, it's an option.
Demesne limit is more limited in CK3 though, as there really are no ways to push it up as far.
could the English have used the Cathars in some way?
someone tell him
Contemporary sources referred to them as “the English”. There’s nothing incorrect about it.
what year? what context?
if you're talking about bouvines, of course they refer to them as the english
Jordan Fantsome referred to Henry II’s forces as “English” when taking about conflict with the Scots in Henry II’s reign. Gerald of Wales labeled the conquerors of Ireland as “English”.
uh, yeah, because the english fought the scots and irish
we're talking about france here, not the british isles
Are you lost? This was the original post.
I know, but I don't understand what the English have to do specifically with the lands in France
The armies were English. Most of the Norman nobility considered themselves English. Only the Angevin dynasty was somewhat French, but even then some would dispute that.
Yes by converting to Eastern Orthodoxy
No, he was literally retarded.
Do you how he died?
He was besieging a rebel city in France. Each day he would walk in front of the city and double dare a crossbow to shoot him in order to weaken morale.
Eventually, the crossbowman hit him.
Richard the Lionheart wasn't a good ruler, meanwhile, Philip Augustus was on a whole different level.

my favourite moments were kicking the israelites and taking their money
and when that wasn't enough, accuse the templars of being demon worshipping homosexuals and take their money too
