I'm currently working on a map which involves swapping the HRE and France around. While I established how the core of the map will look like, I still have trouble shaping the rest of the map. If we choose to ignore the POD which could make this scenario possible. How would Europe shape up? Some of the borders I've already decided on: The Saint Empire: The kingdoms of France, Arelat, Lotharingia and Italy, including the march of Verona. I can also see it having some type of tributary states or marches in Spain. Kingdom of Germany: Essentially the Eastern Frankish Kingdom I have to admit that I have no clue on how the rest of the map will look like. How will the situation be in Spain, with such a powerful neighbor to the north? What about England and Sicily, if the Norman conquest still takes place? and how would Easter Europe shape up, especially Poland/Bohemia. The year the map would be take place in would be roughly around 1066.
