Flag of Cappadocia Cappadocia is a Local Power controlling the southern half of the eponymous Cappadocian region as a satrapy of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom, one of the Hellenistic states in the region arising from the collapse of the Flag of Argead Empire Argead Empire. Stubbornly loyal to the Flag of Achaemenid Empire Achaemenid Empire, the region would only be properly pacified by the Macedonians after the death of Alexander, the southern regions becoming the satrapy of Eumenes who sided with the Argead regents against the coalition of Antigonos until his execution and replacement by the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid loyalist Amyntas, while the north broke off to become Flag of Pontus Pontus. Historically, the Macedonian satraps would be overthrown shortly after the start of the game by the Ariathrid dynasty, restoring Iranian rule to the region under Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid suzerainty and then ruling as an independent kingdom after their decline for some time afterwards. Cappadocian independence would be lost by the machinations of Flag of Pontus Pontus during the Mithridatic Wars, becoming a Flag of Rome Roman client and eventually province afterwards.

In 450 AUC, Cappadocia finds itself in a somewhat difficult position - while it may soon be able to break off of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom so long as the wars of the Diadochi resume, Cappadocia will still likely find itself nestled between the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid and Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid empires, both of whom will likely to see Cappadocia is an appropriate target for conquest, with Flag of Armenia Armenia either an overlord too weak to realistically protect Cappadocia or yet another potential rival that it will have to keep an eye on. Only if Cappadocia can manage to unite the other Anatolian kingdoms does it have any hope of destroying the Greek usurpers and restoring Iranian rule to Asia and beyond.

Missions[edit]

Like all other countries, Cappadocia has access to the generic missions at all times, and those are the only missions that it can take at the start.

However, if Cappadocia keeps its Macedonian culture and makes conquests to the west back to the Greek homeland, Cappadocia can also get access to two of the Greek cultural missions. Like most other Hellenistic group countries, if Cappadocia makes conquests in the Asian, Bithynian, or Thracian region it will get access to the Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea, directing Cappadocia to expand its influence and dominate the Euxine Sea region, while conquering territory in Greece will make available the Greek cultural mission tree Pan-Hellenic Government, directing Cappadocia to unite the Greek city-states into a new Flag of Hellenic League Hellenic League.

Events[edit]

Main article: Armenian flavor events

Not long into the game, the Ariarathid heir will appraoch the ruler of Flag of Armenia Armenia to lead an expedition to overthrow the Macedonian satrap and reclaim the throne of Flag of Cappadocia Cappadocia. If this ultimatum is accepted, Ariarathes II will be restored to his ancestral throne and Cappadocia will become Cappadocian Zoroastrian, as well as breaking away from its Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid overlord. If the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonids are otherwise distracted they will let Cappadocia go without a fight and Cappadocia will become a Vassalized.png tributary of Flag of Armenia Armenia, though if they are not they will likely go to war to suppress this rebellion.

Ariarathes can also be executed to keep the Macedonian Hellenic ruling class in place, though this will significantly anger all Cappadocian culture characters.

Decisions[edit]

As a country with Macedonian primary culture, Cappadocia can form Flag of Macedon Macedon if it conquers the area and destroys the existing Antipatrid kingdom. As a Hellenistic culture group monarchy, Cappadocia also has access to the decision to form the Flag of Argead Empire Argead Empire.

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.

Population[edit]

Cappadocia has a Population.png population of 511 across its Local.png 54 territories at the beginning of the game. The vast majority of the population is Cappadocian, with most of the rest coming from Lycaonian areas in the southwest. The population is mostly Cybelene, though with a significant Zoroastrian minority, especially across the north. There is only a single Macedonian Hellenic pop in the entire country, though as Cappadocian is integrated the Cappadocia should generally not have significant cultural unrest issues, but unless the country converts it will begin with almost no religious unity and so extremely low Omen.png omen power.

Cultural privileges[edit]

  • Cappadocian (Anatolian) - Integrated.png Integrated culture, Citizens Citizen rights

Diplomacy[edit]

Cappadocia begins as a Vassalized.png satrapy of the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom.
