The War of Franconian Succession, Part 5: Allies and Enemies

Imagi-nations and there sundry wars and campaigns need a map. For the variety and even some historical significance, it's hard to beat the Holy Roman Empire for a useful map. With so many states and statelets, one is bound to find  something useful. Better yet, with some of the current online resources available for the eighteenth century, getting and using realistic uniforms prints is easy (and a lot of fun!). Probably the most useful in my opinion is  Kronoskaf . It has a wealth of information on all of the players/personalities and uniforms of the Seven Years War. Run completely on donations, it is well-worth supporting!

Anyhow, here is our map, slightly edited, to chronicle the ins and outs of this particular conflict. Enjoy!

Now, over the next few episodes of this imaginary war in the latter half of the 18th century we'll go over the allies and enemies of the Duchy of Franconia as neighbors choose sides (or not) to settle the questions as the rightful heir to the Franconian throne. 

Until next time...
