Alright my newest child is pretty much complete. This is for a very special competition on the r/imaginarymaps supreddit. Im uploading it here early to see if anyone has any critique or suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
I feel there would be more butterflies. Also amazing that the Kingdom of Arles/Burgundy isn't included in this. Kinda bizarre why Nevers is shown on the small map as its own duchy, while ignoring how Flanders, Brabant, Luxembourg, Holland, etc were all major places with their own history. People didn't just fold a bunch of duchies together. The United Duchies of Julich-Berg-Cleves is one example, or how in Iberia and Czechia they used the term Crown when having a bunch of fairly equal areas under one person. Speaking of Julich-Berg-Cleves, they had a claim over Gelderland. Might as well give it to them here as there is no way that remaining area would be independent if no other Germanic state is. Actually, could you link to the contest? I am wondering what it's requirements are. It might answer some of the questions in my head.
Ahhh, and funnily enough the parts you have as the Dutch Republic all speak Low Saxon rather than the Low Franconcian that the Brabantians, Hollanders, Flemish, etc speak.
