Flag of Boeotia Boeotia is a small republic in Greece, that was the leading power in Greece under the leadership of Flag of Thebes Thebes less than half a century ago. Theban hegemony was crushed at the Battle of Chaeronea (416 AUC) and subsequently replaced by Flag of Macedon Macedonian hegemony under Philippos II Argead.

Background[edit | edit source]

In historical times, the leading city of Boeotia was Flag of Thebes Thebes, whose central position and military strength made it a suitable capital; other major towns were Orchomenus, Plataea, and Thespiae. It was the constant ambition of the Thebans to absorb the other townships into a single state, just as Flag of Athens Athens had annexed the Attic communities. But the outlying cities successfully resisted this policy, and only allowed the formation of a loose federation that, initially, was merely religious.

The destruction of Flag of Thebes Thebes by Alexander 'the Great' Argead (335 BCE) destroyed the political energy of the Boeotians. They never again pursued an independent policy, but followed the lead of protecting powers. Although enrolled for a short time in the Flag of Aetolia Aetolian League (~245 BCE) Boeotia was generally loyal to Macedon, and supported its later kings against Flag of Rome Rome. Rome dissolved the league in 171 BCE, but it was revived under Augustus, and merged with the other central Greek federations in the Achaean synod. The death-blow to the country's prosperity was dealt by the devastations during the First Mithridatic War.

Missions[edit | edit source]

Main article: Greek missions

As a Greek nation, Boeotia can pursue the Pan-Hellenic Government mission, guiding them through the unification of the Greek city-states into a new Flag of Hellenic League Hellenic League. Expanding into ports of Asia, Bithynia et Paphlagonia, or Thrace will unlock access to the The Hospitable Sea, focusing on establishing control of the Black Sea.

Like all other countries, Boeotia always has access to the generic missions.

Decisions[edit | edit source]

Boeotia can undertake the decision to form the Flag of Hellenic League Hellenic League if they control all of Greece and Thessaly.

Pan-Hellenic League

During the days of Argead domination the League of Corinth united all Greek cities in one league. The goal of this organization was always to control them, and to deny them the independence that they are due. But the idea of a Pan-Hellenic League has not died with the oppressive actions of the Argeads and Antipatrids, it could also be the ultimate guarantor of Greek Independence.
Let us unite one and all and form a League to encompass all the free cities of Greece. Together we will become the dominant force of the Greek world, leaving the kingdoms of would be successors, or usurpers, behind us.
