The Austrian Lands, Anno Domine 1560


1. Regarding the ever-lasting issue with the Protestants, let it be known that we intend to stay with the Augsburg Peace. We have no intention to break with the Roman Catholic Church, so of course cuius regio, eius religio should technically be enforced within the Austrian Lands. However, to ensure peace within our lands, and especially to keep the princes calm, we shall not pursue aggressive policies against the Protestants in Austria or Bohemia. We will not recognize their faith, but unless they exercise their faith all too present, they shall fear nothing from us.

2. We shall allow the Jesuits to begin missioning in our lands, for the time being however only in the County of Tyrol, the Hochstift of Trent and Royal Hungary. Once they have proven effective in reconverting Protestants in these areas to the Catholic faith, they shall be allowed to missionize in all of our lands.

3. We again state our intention that we as King of Hungary strive to hold our court in Buda.

4. We shall furthermore revoke our testament of 1554, in which the Austrian Lands would have been divided following our death. Our first son Maximilian shall, following the common law and practice, be heir to all our Austrian Lands.

We state that as by god's will King of Hungary, we will never allow a pagan "principality of Buda". Buda is and remains the capital of the Kingdom of Hungary, and no serfdom to a Turk's tempers. We once foolishly allowed the division of Hungary during the Zapolay ursupers time, having lost Transylvania in the process. We will not allow the creation of a "principality of Buda". We are the bearer of the crown of Saint Stephan, elected and crowned king of Hungary, sovereign of the whole kingdom of Hungary. No fiefdom may be created in the lands of Hungary, our lands.

Declaration of War:

We, Emperor Ferdinand, hereby declare war on the Sublime Porte. For years, lands under the crown of Saint Stephan have been divided from their rightful Christian kings, and forced into slavery and fiefdom under pagan overlords, Turks from the East. We, by God's Will Bearer of Saint Stephan's Crown and King of Hungary, shall take back what is ours, liberate the whole Kingdom of Hungary and again sit court in its rightful capital of Buda.

x Ferdinand
Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire
King of Germany, Bohemia and Hungary
Archduke of Austria, Duke of Styria and Carinthia,
Principal Count of Tyrol, Lord of Further Austria

The Austrian Lands - A.D. 1560 Part II

-- Jesuite Question: It shall be in the hands of the Duke of Bavaria, and in his alone, to deal with any religious matters, including the question whether to allow the Jesuit order into his lands, pursuant to the treaty setteled at Augsburg. As such, we as Emperor, shall make no order nor any recommendations regarding these matters.

-- The Edict of Bratislava:

We, Ferdinand I, King of Hungary and bearer of Saint Stephan's Crown, order before the Estates of the Kingdom of Hungary, the following: Following the borders settled at the Treaty of Navygarad, the Kingdom of Hungary shall be divided into three parts, subordinated to the High Court of Hungary and the King of Hungary. The first of these parts shall be Upper Hungary, which shall be composed of the lands currently under control of the King of Hungary, and subordinated directly to the King. The second of these parts shall be the principality of Lower Hungary, composed of the lands currently in control of the principality of Buda. The third part shall be the current principality of Transylvania.
The noblemen swearing loyalty to the King of Hungary shall convene to elect their prince themselves, and they shall be answerable first to their elected prince, and then to the King.

Be it resolved so,
x Ferdinand I, King of Hungary, Bearer of Saint Stephan's Crown

Think I'm gonna have to drop for a little bit (considering finals are in two weeks and I'm basically running on Vicodin and antibiotics right now). Will probably be back later.

Sorry to see you go!
