Does anyone have an editable map of the HRE in 1618, prior to the 30 Years War?
Thanks in advance.
If you look for editable maps, your best bet is still the slightly inaccurate 1648 map on Wiki:
I can try making a Centennia one if you want, but they're not 100% accurate.
Thanks! I'm having some troubles to download the second one, but I'll try again later.
That's nice! I'll send you a PM with more details.
Ah yes. Goddamn svgs.
Heres in png, but smaller:
Much better now! Thanks very much!
BTW, the more I look at this map, the more I think that Napoleon was only a misunderstood hero of the cartographers...
Why? He took the cool out of the maps
I think he just stopped people from labelling that area 'small states'.
Napoleon was very sensitive about the size of his...er...states.
Praise to the map god! The guy who also made the rhine cofnederation/German cofnederation map serie on Wiki now also had made a 1648 map of the HREGN in the same style! Finally a well editable map of the HREGN!
Its not perfect of course, but as perfect as Ive seen any editable map come close to. Lorraine looks wacky (whats that church territory in it snorthest?), the border between Hannover and Brunswick is not orderly drawn, and the Saxon Duchies are lumped together, but goddamn, still its a wish come true!
Of course, the mappists of AH.com can easily correct that...
That's really great! Thanks Susano!
I think no map of the HRE can really be perfect, with all those division in tiny states... My mental image of the territorial mess in the HRE is a noble taking his son to the top of a tower, showing the territories around, but instead of saying "One day son all of this will be yours" he says something like "One day son half of that hill at your right will be yours, because the other half belongs to the Wettins. Oh, and that creek in the valley, from that big round rock until the forest will be yours too. However, the forest belongs to a branch of the Wittelsbachs, and the rock itself belongs to Hesse."
Thank wiki user Kgberger
(A fellow Hessian, apparently. Hm, nice)
Hence the Landgraviate of P
That's very good
