Kingdom of Brandenburg 1622 by Rarayn Kingdom of Brandenburg 1622 by Rarayn
Updates:
- Tinted the land a light shade of brown and darkened the water to make it more clear which is which. (Was originally slightly confusing at first glance.)

- Made the rest of the map German since most of the text was already in German. Translation of the title can be found below for those who need it.

- Changed the markers for the regional capitals of Mecklenburg and the Pomeranias to regular city markers for the sake of consistency.


The title on the map means "The Kingdom of Brandenburg Following the Edict of Trier 1622"


A map of the Kingdom of Brandenburg to go with the flag I made...God, July 2011? Seriously? Time passes too fast these days. [link]

The Hohenzollerns had a different set of failures and successes here. It's more nautically oriented than the OTL Brandenburg/Prussia, not that that's much of an accomplishment. Prussia was never even secularized as a Lutheran duchy here.

The year is pretty much just a placeholder at this point. The Edict of Trier is supposed to be the end of some sort of very alternate Thirty Years War. (Which didn't last thirty years or started or ended at the same time) The end result is a dissolution/split of the HRE as a result of an even more antagonistic relationship between *Protestants and Catholics than OTL. The whole thing's pretty vague at this point. I pretty much just wanted to illustrate the Brandenburg I had in mind when I made the flag last summer.

That map is beautiful, very clean and you get a great overview!

I wonder if anyone thought about calling Berlin, just Cölln XD

Thank you, I am glad you liked it! :D

Just calling it Cölln would be kind of funny, yeah. XD

I also thought about keeping the Brandenburgian capital in the old electoral capital of Tangermünde because I thought the name sounded cooler, but it wouldn't exactly be very central or practical. >.>

Tangermünde sounds really cool, but I like central-positionated capitals more^^

It´s really awesome, how the Prussian-Brandenburger could make out of that sandy, bad regions a great-power of Europe. You know it was called: Die Streubüchse des Reiches. Something like: The sand-box of the empire. XD

Because Brandenburg has a bad ground and had many swamps. But discipline and order changed it^^

Yes, I read as much in the Iron Kingdom. I believe the territories around Berlin were even referred to as a desert at one point. Regardless of what one thinks about the Hohenzollerns in general, one can't deny that they had a lot of able administrators on their family tree.

Time passes slowly when you need it to pass fast and vice versa. >_<

So in essence, Brandenburg becomes that TL's Prussia?
