Flag of Cyrenaica Cyrenaica is a regional power in North Africa, a federation of Greek colonies centered on the eponymous city of Cyrene and known as an important cultural and intellectual center of the Hellenistic world. Always associated with the neighbouring power of Flag of Egypt Egypt as first an independent kingdom and then a satrapy of the Flag of Achaemenid Empire Achaemenid and Flag of Argead Empire Argead empires, Cyrenaica came under the control of Flag of Egypt Egypt after the death of Alexander but by 450 AUC had essentially slipped out of Flag of Egypt Ptolemaic control as an independent nation. Settled on a fertile coast surrounded by desert on land but with easy access to the Mediterranean, Cyrenaica is in an ideal location to either grow rich off trade and go for more cultural and intellectual pursuits or found a maritime empire in the Eastern Mediterranean to rival that of Flag of Carthage Carthage - but only if it can manage to deal with Flag of Egypt Egypt, larger, stronger, and eager to reassert its authority over what it sees as its natural sphere of influence, as well as the nomads of the desert that seem present an ever-present threat to civilization.

Historically Cyrenaica would again come under the control of Flag of Egypt Egypt under Ptolemy's stepson Magas shortly after the beginning of the game, alternating between short periods of independence and direct Flag of Egypt Ptolemaic rule before its last independent king bequeathed the kingdom to Flag of Rome Rome on his death in 96 BC, after which Cyrenaica became a Roman province.

Missions[edit | edit source]

Main article: Greek missions

At the beginning of the game, Cyrenaica starts off only with access to the generic missions. However, like most other Hellenistic group countries, Cyrenaica can also get access to two of the Greek cultural missions under certain circumstances. If Cyrenaica conquers territory in Greece, it can 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, while making conquests in the Asian, Bithynian, or Thracian region will gives access to the Euxine Sea Hellenistic cultural mission tree The Hospitable Sea, directing Cyrenaica to expand its influence and dominate the Euxine Sea region.

The Cyrenaican Problem[edit | edit source]

Near the beginning of the game Flag of Egypt Egypt will decide how to deal with Cyrenaica, who only a few years before had effectively asserted their independence after the death of the previous Ptolemaic governor. Flag of Egypt Egypt might choose to attempt to bribe the new king and try to get Cyrenaica as a Vassalized.png tributary, assert its historic rights and get claims on the area, or send the king's stepson Magas to restore Ptolemaic rule over the region - forcing the Cyrenaicans to decide whether to accept their new governor and become a Vassalized.png tributary of Flag of Egypt Egypt, or face a civil war against Magas's forces and the Flag of Cyrenaican Opposition Cyrenaican Opposition.

If the Heirs of Alexander DLC is enabled, this event is instead triggered by a task of the Flag of Egypt Egyptian mission tree Greater Empire.

Decisions[edit | edit source]

As a Hellenistic culture group monarchy, Cyrenaica has access to the decision to form the Flag of Hellenistic Empire Hellenistic 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.

The Flag of Cyrenaican Opposition Cyrenaican Opposition is a Civil war.png civil war releasable that can appear as part of the The Cyrenaican Problem event chain if Flag of Egypt Egypt decides to send Magas to reassert control. If Cyrenaica refuses Magas's ultimatum, Magas will seize control over Paliouros (3366) and several other eastern territories on the Flag of Egypt Egyptian border as the Cyrenaican Opposition and begin a Civil war.png civil war against the existing Cyrenaican government, which Flag of Egypt Egypt might decide to help fund with additional troops. If Magas wins, the Cyrenaican Opposition will become Cyrenaica and Flag of Egypt Egypt can either accept them as a Vassalized.png tributary or demand more control - which Cyrenaica might accept to become a Vassalized.png client state, or refuse to remain independent, which will grant Flag of Egypt Egypt claims.

Magas of Egypt

We always knew the tentative peace with Egypt could not last; they obstinately refuse to see the independence of Cyrenaica as anything but a threat. The betrayal and murder of their previous governor of the province, Ophellas, while attempting to invade Carthage is, to them, only a temporary setback...

A man named Magas with dubious relations to the Ptolemaic family now marches on Cyrenaica at the head of an Egyptian army, sending demands that he immediately be handed control of Cyrenaica by order of [SCOPE.sChar('flav_egy_2_egy_ruler').GetCountry.GetRulerTitle] [SCOPE.sChar('flav_egy_2_egy_ruler').GetCountry.GetRuler.GetName] of [SCOPE.sChar('flav_egy_2_egy_ruler').GetCountry.GetName].

Our leader, [ROOT.GetCountry.GetRulerTitle] [ROOT.GetCountry.GetRuler.GetName], has the support of the Cyrenaican people and nobility who long to see our lands independent once more. Then again, perhaps it would not be wise to provoke the ire of Egypt...
