Flag of Aeolia Aeolia, also known as Aeolis, the Aeolian League, or the League of Ilion, is a local power on the north-western coast of Asia and one of the many free Greek city-states and leagues owing allegiance to the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom. Settled by Flag of Thessaly Thessalians during the Greek Dark Ages, the Aeolian League of 304 BC is a revival of an older league that once united the cities of the area until the 6th century BC when the area fell under the domination of Flag of Lydia Lydia, and after that the Flag of Achaemenid Empire Achaemenid Empire. Sponsored by the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom along with the neighbouring Flag of Ionia Ionian League, by the start of the game the restored Aeolian League is now centered at Ilion (Troy) and has been expanded to include some of the Ionian cities in the Troad as well. Despite its vassal status, Aeolia is one of the more powerful states in the area that is Greece and the Aegean and has access to the region of Europa through three fords on the Hellespontus, giving it a strategic position at the border between the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom and Flag of Thrace Thrace that might alternatively be the key to its success or reaons for its downfall once the Wars of the Diadochi resume.

Historically, Aeolia would remain under the control of stronger powers and follow the political fortunes of the rest of Asia Minor, conquered from Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid control first to Flag of Thrace Thrace and then the Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid Empire, after that coming under the influence of Flag of Pergamon Pergamon and finally passing with the rest of the region to Flag of Rome Rome.

Missions[edit | edit source]

Main article: Greek missions#The Hospitable Sea

As a Hellenistic culture group country in the region of Asia, Aeolia has access to the Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea if it can be come independent and grow to own at least 25 territories, directing it to expand its influence in the region and dominate the coasts of the Euxine Sea. Like most other Hellenistic group countries, if Aeolia conquers territory in Greece it can also get the Greek cultural mission tree Pan-Hellenic Government and attempt to unite the Greek city-states into a new Flag of Hellenic League Hellenic League.

Like all other countries, Aeolia also has access to the generic missions.

Events[edit | edit source]

Main article: The Antigonid Cause Wavers

When Antigonos I Monophthalmos, the starting ruler of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom, dies, their empire will disintegrate if they have not managed to conquer Korinthos (418) from Flag of Macedon Macedon or have failed to maintained control over a number of key cities scattered across their vast Asian territories. If Aeolia is still an Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid subject when this event triggers, Flag of Thrace Thrace will annex much of Aeolia's territory if it is involved in the partition, taking over most of Aeolia's eastern and southern territories (with a small portion going to Flag of Sardis Sardis or Flag of Pergamon Pergamon) and leaving Aeolia with a small rump centred on Ilion and Antigoneia Troas, as well as the island of Lesbos. Aeolia itself, however, will remain a subject of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom after the event triggers.

Decisions[edit | edit source]

As a Hellenistic culture group country, Aeolia has access to the decision to form the Flag of Hellenistic Empire Hellenistic Empire. Note that this requires reforming into a monarchy.

Reunite Alexander's Empire

For too long parasites and scavengers have made a feast of the Great Empire that Alexander spent a lifetime building. It is time we do away with all claimants, usurpers and delusional provincial strongmen. There can be only one authority within the empire of Alexander the Great, one upholder of the great Hellenistic legacy that this great man founded.

That one power could not possibly come from any dynasty but our own. Only a family that respects the Argead traditions can legitimately claim its legacy.
