Strategy Edit

War with the BrigantesEdit

First of all ally with Silures Silures and start fabricating a claim on the Brigantes Brigantes, and make sure you get some Germanic allies like Saxony Saxony or Francia Francia. When the claim has fabricated, fabricate another one, then declare war on the Brigantes Brigantes; Silures Silures should join the war. Try take as much land as possible, and don't give Silures Silures any land.

Unifying Great BritainEdit

Fabricate some claims on the Rome Romans as they tend to break down and release a nation or two. Don't leave the released countries much time to build up troops, strike them quickly. If Rome Rome doesn't release any nations then try to beat the Romans with your mainland European allies as they should join. After this you should be able to conquer all of Britain Once you have conquered all of Britain; you should reform your technology. At this point you should be able to conquer some of Scandinavia due to the barbarians spawning in the region. Eventually, you will be able to form Great Britain Great Britain at Administrative tech Admin Tech lvl. 55.
