It is with grave anger His Holiness had learned of Johann von Eck's disobeying his direct order to cease from all public and writing polemics now, that the Holy See is engaged in serious talks, aimed at healing the divisions within the Holy Church, that being especially important given political division in the wake of highly divisive imperial election and the growing danger represented by the odious Saracens in the East. Von Eck's action are nothing short of sabotaging the process.

Therefore His Holiness orders von Eck, under pains of excommunication, to confine himself into a monastery, with no contact with the outside world, until He decided otherwise.

The Holy Father does hereby authorize a formation of the Society of Saint Adalbert (also known in Bohemia and Poland as Vojtěch and Wojciech respectively), a body of clergymen and trusted laymen that shall work to spread the Holy Faith among the primitive peoples of the New World, in cooperation and with respect to temporal authorities established there by Christian monarchs. The Society shall be answerable directly to the Vicar of Christ.

Owing to Emperor Henry's impeccable credentials as devoted son of the Holy Church and the Defender of Faith, His Holiness concludes there hardly is a better candidate to join in the noble spirit of spreading our faith in the New World.

Therefore, after consulting with parties involved, the Treaty of Tordesillas is amended to grant the lands located above 40 degrees North of the Equator to England.

John Stewart, Duke of Albany and Governor of Scotland, weds this day at Berwick Margaret Stewart, princess of England and Queen Dowager of Scotland!

King James V is pleased to grant his royal mother the title and jointure of Countess of Berwick in her own right, in addition to her other dignities.

The King of Scots bestows upon his cousin, guardian and beloved new stepfather the additional places of Prince and Great Steward of Scotland, as well as the Lordship of the Isles and the Earldom of Fife, to be retained at least until King James fathers a son of his own or comes into his majority.

The King of Scots intends the permanent residence for the present of his dearly beloved sister Lady Margaret Douglas at Berwick and at Court amid their mother's household.

Should further siblings and cousins both be born to the merry and regal couple, their rights as regards Scotland and England shall be scrupulously and proportionately recalled, with corresponding respect for the King's Grace as well as Lady Margaret's English claim.

God Save King, Queen, Governor and Realm!

I, Henry VIII Tudor, Elected Holy Roman Emperor, Forever August, King of the Germans, King of Italy, King of the Romans, and Coronated King of England and Lord of Ireland, do hereby proclaim my displeasure at the great insult inflicted upon me through the marriage of the Duke of Albany to my dear sister, Queen Margaret of the Scots. As the most senior male in the Tudor line, it is both honorable and traditional to seek my permission for the union of holy matrimoney to take place. I was never consulted nor advised that this union was occurring and am deeply upset about it.

Prince John, Duke of Albany expresses his surprise at his new brother's claim to be in ignorance of a match of which he was consistently apprised, nor does he consider it customary for a dowager queen to seek another monarch's permission to wed.

Further, Prince John announces his intention once suitable preparations are complete to take the cross against the infernal Turk, for the salvation of Holy Church.

The Duke of Albany, through his erratic nature and disrespect for the standards, norms, and rules of Christendom, has lost his right to rule as regent for my dear nephew. As the closest living male relative to the King of Scotland, I will serve as regent to the King of Scotland hencefore until his coming of age.

The King of Scots, Queen Dowager and Duke of Albany are detained in the grave matter of planning a holy crusade. Should the King of England wish to join their company, he will have to go to the inconvenience of paying them a visit. I believe he knows the way; it goes by Stirling and the Bannock Burn.

Manuel I, King of Portugal and the Algarves

We hereby pledge that, once all necessary preparations have been made, the King of Portugal shall embark upon Crusade against the Turk. All loyal knights of Portugal are encouraged to join the fight for the Holy Land. We shall retake Jerusalem for Christ, and God above will smile down upon us while we smite the Infidel in His name and for His eternal glory.

In nomine Patris et Fili et Spiritus Sanctus

The continuing desecration of the Holy Land by the Saracens' dirty feet constitutes enough of an insult for the entire of Christendom to rise up and avenge said insult in the sea of blood and fire. To make the matters even more aggravated, the odious moors are constantly threatening the Christendom, instead of hiding in shame as they should have. Enslavement and rapes of Christian virgins, piracy at high seas, just to name these two, can no longer by tolerated.

By the divine authority vested in Us, and after receiving numerous requests from Kings of Europe urging us to take this step, We, as the Vicar of Christ, proclaim the Crusade against the heathens defiling the Tomb of Our Lord, and calls upon all Princes of Europe to join in in the holy and noble quest.

(The Holy Father is also said to have remarked the crusade will not distract him from his work to bridge gaps between Christians in Europe.)

Regarding the Election of Emperor Henry VIII:

His royal highness King Charles of Spain is proud to congratulate his most beloved uncle on his election to the title of Holy Roman Emperor. Though he may have initially wished or the title to remain in Habsburg hands, he can think of no one better besides Emperor Henry to ensure the Empire is kept stable and organized. Furthermore King Charles, as a fellow sovereign as well as Archduke of Austria, would like to publicly denounce any individuals within the Empire or Henry VIII's existing territories attempting to forment unrest. It is the best interest of Christendom for Emperor Henry to have the support and friendship of the people of Europe.

In nomine Patris et Fili et Spiritus Sanctus. Amen.

We, Leo X, Bishop of Rome and the Vicar of Christ, are happy to honor the memory of one of the greatest and most pious Queens of our era. Isabella of Spain, Queen Regnant of Castille and Leon and one of the most devoted daughters of the Holy Church, did more to spread the faith both in new and old worlds than any servant of God. She expelled odious moors from Spain, made a decision resulting in discovery of the new lands in the west and immensely strengthened the Church in Spain and Europe.

A decision to elevate any person to Sainthood is never a simple one, except in rare cases as such. From this day on, Saint Isabella shall be known as the Patron of Missions.




(No, it doesn't mean I will be expelling the Jews from the Papal states or something like thus. Relax.)

Anglo-Scottish War explodes!
Carnage at Berwick as Margaret Tudor is captured, Buckingham and the White Rose rise against the Emperor, British Islands in disarray


Following relatively small hints of tension between the Kingdoms of Scotland and England following the rise in authority of Lord Regent Albany the conflict between him and Emperor Henry seemed to dramatically escalate to unexpected heights. The announcement of the marriage between Queen Dowager Margaret and Lord Albany and the Crusader intentions of the latter came as extremely unpleasant developments for Henry, and this in a context in which English and Scottish troops converged on the border on the apparent pretext of bringing order to the unstable region. Hopes that the tension would be defused became further dashed on account of an explosive declaration by Henry in which he declared himself Regent of Scotland, a statement which sparked severe outrage across the northern kingdom and particularly within the Scottish nobility.

The next few weeks would prove incredibly eventful:

The Battle of Berwick:

Intending to bring Albany to his knees in a swift, decisive stroke, Henry commanded his brother-in-law the Duke of Suffolk to storm Berwick-Upon-Tweed with the main English army right in the middle of the controversial wedding between the Lord Protector and the Queen Dowager, in what was an apparent attempt at capturing the couple. The assault on the yet unfinished wedding soon turned into carnage as several guests were slain and the Scottish army itself - brought by Albany as a precaution - joined the fray to rescue the Regent and his would-be bride, and Berwick-Upon-Tweed itself turned into a battlefield as feriocious and confusing as the Battle of Flodden had been seven years ago. By all accounts both Suffolk and Angus (the main commanders) fought with bravery and distinction, the Scottish host initially halting the English advance with use of the existing fortifications.

After several hours of constant and confusing struggle a group of knights extracted the gravely injured Lord Protector from his holdout, the Queen Dowager and her daughter having been captured by the English vanguard and taken to Sulffok. Soon afterwards the Scottish army was finally forced to yield the battlefield and retreat in relatively good order back to Edinburgh, if in a confirmed defeat which was combined by the defeat of Admiral Barton and the Scottish fleet by a small English naval squadron after Barton attempted to intercept the ships directed to blockade Edinburgh. Still, Suffolk had lost more men than Angus during the battle, and Barton's sacrfice - the Admiral barely surviving the naval encounter - had prevented a blockade. At Edinburgh itself the Scottish nobility closed ranks alongside the Lord Regent, and swore revenge against the "Demon Emperor" Henry.


The Buckingham Revolt and the Irish Uprising:

Suspicious of the Duke of Buckingham's latest moves within the English court and perhaps conscious of the popularity hit caused by the loss of Berwick and Calais, King Henry resolved to put order on his court by ordering the arrest of the Duke in the Tower and a full investigation led by Cardinal Wolsey, a move which nearly succeeded before Buckingham escaped arrest - allegedly with the help of other courtiers - and withdrew to his vast domains in Wales, where he decided his only chance at survival was to raise his banners. Soon Buckingham raised a sizable host among his vassals and supporters, and further expanded his influence by gaining the support of a group of influential anti-Henry lords (the powerful Earls of Northumberland, Derby and Wiltshire), thus becoming a credible threat to London despite it being unknown what cause is Buckingham to espouse.

Yet another conflict for the Tudors was created when the exiled Richard de la Pole, the so called White Rose made his dramatic landing in the north of Ireland alongside a full regiment of mercenaries and with the visible support of the Earl of Arran, after which the Yorkist claimant declared his intention to regain the crown for his House and depose "the Tudor usurper". The end result has been the eruption of another civil conflict across Ireland, the Earls of Kildare and Desmond and other old Irish lords rising to support Richard and pro-Tudor lords such as the Earl of Ormond standing for Henry, a civil war which De la Pole begins at an advantage because of his battle-hardened mercenary contingent.  

With Scotland threatened by Suffolk's army at the border, Ireland and Wales experience the rise of two dangerous and potential claimants to the English throne and with King Henry still unpopular despite attempts to portray the Spice Islands expedition as a great success it is unknown what outcome to expect. However, there's already significant speculation as to what noble families linked by family and marriage to Buckingham or De la Pole will do, particularly as those families have struck a sincere and lasting friendship with Queen Catherine of Aragon - who as of yet remains voluntarily isolated from Henry following the legitimation of the Duke of Richmond -, just as there is speculation on whether Albany's marriage to Margaret Tudor will be considered legitimate due to the interruption of the ceremony.

Mixed start to the new Crusade:
Pope survives assassination attempt, Portuguese forces in Yemen crushed, Luther proposes a Council


The Reform Debate:

In the dramatic aftermath of the Leipzig Debate there were many who believed the Papacy would put an end to Luther and his push for Church Reform following the explosive renunciation of Papal infallibility, and it was certainly a fiery demand by the more conservative elements within the Church that the friar be tried as a heretic. It was therefore a surprise - a shock even - when Pope Leo X threatened von Eck with excommunication lest he confine himself to a monastery, a stunning order von Eck complied with out of loyalty. This move has brought on further and increasingly passionate reactions as popular sentiment in Germany has seemingly rejoiced at von Eck's punishment, believing it to be a vindication of Luther's push for reform and helping greatly to reduce anti-papal sentiment.

Indeed, Luther himself appeared almost bewildered, writing a public missive in support of the Pope's apparent support for conciliation and reform and arguing for Pope Leo to call on a general Council of the Church to discuss necessary reforms. The other side of the issue has been the outrage of several conservative cardinals and princes - and the pro-indulgency German Electors - at what they see as an unacceptable surrender to the demands of heretics, an anger that was even felt in some corners of Rome as the Pope made good on his past promises for a Crusade and declared one against the Ottoman Empire. It was soon after that when the Pope was attacked by a deranged monk while making a public appearance, being slain by the guards before he could reach His Holiness.

The discovery that the monk was carrying anti-Luther pamphlets and documents suggesting a hardline conspiracy to eliminate the Pope has pushed tensions to the limit as crowds take to the streets either in support or in opposition to Pope Leo.


The Beginnings of the Crusade

Following the papal announcement of the Crusade it became clear both the Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of Portugal would be among their most visible supporters, but the Battle of Berwick-Upon-Tweed and recent chaos within the British Islands has come as an early blow as both the Scottish Regent and the Emperor are now locked in a deadly struggle. This has left King Manuel of Portugal as the most visible "Crusader King" so far, and both the King and the Ottoman Sultan wasted no time in taking action. On the Portuguese side envoys finally established formal links with the christian Ethiopian Empire (one of many states deeply concerned about Ottoman expansion) and began work towards what could be an extremely productive relationship, but at the same time found themselves pre-empted by Sultan Selim on the battlefields of Yemen.

Indeed, the Sultan - via his Crown Prince - made friends of his own with a generous offer to the Mamluk governor (who was also believed to be rather displeased with the news of a christian Crusade), leading to most of the Mamluk forces switching sides to the Ottoman forces and ending the struggle among non-christian forces. What followed was an Ottoman supported offensive against the Portuguese forces trying to siege Aden, a combination of armies which vastly outnumbered the European forces. At the Battle of Aden the Portuguese forces were soundly beaten back to the sea and only spared by the timely intervention of the fleet, which rescued most of the invading forces as Yemen seemingly became the newest conquest of Selim.

With an early defeat in Yemen and with the Kingdom of Scotland in no apparent shape to enter a Crusade, attention is likely to shift towards King Francis and King Charles as the most important monarchs whose support would make such an ambitious effort against the Ottoman Empire possible.

The Wars on the East:
Christian II at the brink of victory in Sweden, Pro-Vasily coalition faces a grueling siege of Moscow


The Siege of Stockholm

With the Battle of Vastrena putting an end to Regent Sture and his more veteran forces, the Kingdom of Sweden fell into disarray and panic. King Christian II was quick to seize the moment, ordering further advances by his armies and taking a series of steps to attempt to secure Oldenburg rule over the region. While the decision to appoint Archbishop Trolle the new Swedish Regent was unpopular with the public and the pro-independence hardliners it provided a somewhat credible support to promises of semi-autonomy, which combined with various offers of leniency allowed Finland and a majority of the resisting lands to desist in the hopes of being spared.

Alas, Stockholm itself and several key cities refused to yield to Christian and became hotbeds for a popular reaction against surrender led by Lady Christina Gyllenstierna - Sture's widow, allowing hundreds of citizens to rise as volunteers to fight the Danish armies. Although most of the cities still defying the King can only defend themselves through limited garrisons the bulk of resistance forces have focused on the city of Stockholm under Christina as the Danish armies and navy have besieged the city and closed it off from the rest of the world, the last messages to get through being pleas of help from Lady Christina towards any monarch or prince willing to save Sweden. Should the city fall, it is believed King Christian will be able to claim victory over the rebellious Swedes.


The Siege of Moscow

Meanwhile, the civil war across the Grand Duchy of Moscow had taken on a whole new dimension. Grand Duke Vasily chose to regain his throne by appealing to his new allies and calling for an intervention by the Teutonic Knights and the Polish King, both sending armies to march on Moscow and crush the Boyar revolt once and for all. Although the projected combination of armies would allow Vasily to lead over 40,000 men against his enemies the popular reaction to the news surpassed expectations, as the notion of the Grand Duke invading his own lands with a Polish army - particularly given the unpopularity of Sigismund across the Grand Duchy - sparked an even stronger will to resist than what was seen in Sweden.

Over a third of Vasily's personal forces melted down as men deserted and further cities and nobles revolted against his authority, all while hundreds (if not thousands) of Moscow citizens rose as militias to defend their city against the combined intervention forces. Finally it was time for the three armies to gather and commence their siege, a series of brutal, bloody battles which saw the Teutonic Knights bear the hardest part and all assaults upon the city rejected by the passionate defenders. After several weeks of siege the coalition armies have proven unable to break the stalemate as of yet, and there's rumors of similar uprisings in some areas away from Moscow.
