In early April in the year 1800 the Low Kingdom of Bergen had occupied the County of Coutony. It was the 50th year of the occupation and once again the Bergen Low King wanted more. He looked onto the small Lordship that was adjacent to Coutony. The Lordship of Miensburg. This lordship wasn't the strongest of territories nor was it the richest. The army of the lordship was small and under equipped which made it an easy target for the Bergen army. So on the 20th of April in 1800 the Bergen army prepared to cross into Miensburg.

However the Miensburg army was trained well and had the advantage of the knowledge of the terrain. The leader of the lordships army was the son of the Margrave Albert. The leader Baronet Colonel Fredrick (who would later take his father's role and marry and connect the line with the United Kingdom of Grand.) was an inspiring leader. The Mients Set up their defensive lines and fought


They set up defensives lines everywhere and prepared for the worst. The main thing was they stood there and fought

The Bergen army marched almost straight through the nation. Miensburg couldn't keep up with the pace of attack nor prevent its devastating consequences

However the Colonel had drawn up one plan. That was to concentrate his forces on one point hoping the Bergen army would underestimate the strength of this collection of men. This meant creating defences around the small village of Main. This was to be the battleground.

The plan was however not going to work. The Bergen army superior in size started to march. When they reached the outskirts if the village a small skirmish ended in both sides losing roughly the same amount of men. To Bergen this was no problem but to Miensburg this meant that their entire light infantry had been lost.

The Bergen army then started to set up their artillery. The Bergen army had seven canon while Miensburg only had one.

The Bergens started a full frontal assault on the Miet's defensive line. Bergen casualties were heavy and a victory for Miensburg started to materialise.

But once again numerical superiority won out and the defences were slowly overrun. This would be the final straw for the Miet army. Defeat was inevitable

A small bunch of survivors retreated to the forest but were caught up by fresh Bergen Infantry. The Miets fought hard. The new Bergens were poorly trained but that hardly effected the odds.

The Lordship of Miensburg was doomed.

Since we know Fredrick survived to inherit the title of Margrave of Meinsburg (and to become one of the ancestors of the King-Emperor of the IFK), this story's end is a bit of a Foregone Conclusion. Razz

Still an interesting story, though. Smile





EDIT: Wait, is this story taking place in 1800, or later? "The" Margrave Fredrick wouldn't be born until 1812, according to my royal family tree. Razz

Survival does imply (although not for certain) that he retained some measure of control after the war, though. Razz

Looking forward to seeing how this ended. Smile

A few days earlier to this Miensburg had sent an envoy to Schwieset, Miensburg's big next door neighbour,




It asked simply for aid, Fredrick had little hope in this but was surprised. At the ending moment when all was seamed to be lost artillery gun started to fire from a ridge not too far away. Though his spyglass he saw a Schwieset flag, joy and relief filled him. He ordered a cease fire and demanded the Bergen army to leave Miensburg or they would risk war with Schwieset, which was well known for it's superb military, especially their artillery.





The Bergen army after a few more rounds from the artillery started a mass rout. Officers tried to encourage them but no Bergen soldier wanted to fight a superior enemy. 3 Days later a peace treaty was signed agreeing that there were no more hostilities. This was ideal for Berge as they had a new possible enemy to the east, Hesse. But that is another story in Bergenstein history.
