Gaul is a formable nation in Europe, representing a unification of the disparate Gallic tribes from Armorica to Rhaetia, and can be formed by any country in the Gallic or Belgae culture groups with a capital in one of the main Gallic regions. The larger Gallic tribes such as Flag of Arvernia Arvernia, Flag of Pictonia Pictonia, or Flag of Aeduia Aeduia are particularly well-positioned to unite the Gauls, though in principle any Gallic or Belgae-cultured nation could - even more distant tribes like Flag of Insubria Insubria or Flag of Latobrigia Latobrigia, if they conquer into the area and move their capital. As a tier 3 endgame tag, forming Gaul requires control over all the major cities of Gaul as well as reforming into a monarchy or republic and grants claims over all of the traditional Gallic lands, from the tip of Armorica to the Rhine frontier and the heart of Cisalpine Gaul. Historically no state ever came close to unifying the Gallic tribes before the Flag of Rome Roman conquest, though elements of Gallic unity could be seen in the uprising of the Flag of Arvernia Arvernian king Vercingetorix and the later Roman breakaway state of the Gallic Empire.

Formation requirements[edit]

A country's capital must be in one of the hatched territories in order to see the decision to Form Gaul.

Form Gaul

The fertile land of Gaul contains many tribes and peoples, living in a prosperous, if tense, relationship. For some, this fractious existence is a sign of the old ways - instead, new methods are needed if our people are to survive in the era of civilization and empire. The task is not light, but perhaps we might be the driving force behind the unification of the Gallic people?

Formation requirements for Gaul. Fully coloured territories are required, while hatched territories will be claimed after formation.


  • Never ignore Flag of Rome Rome; her might as an enemy could be crippling to your ambitions of forming Gaul. In particular, nations starting in the west might want to quickly expand eastwards and grab the required territories before Flag of Rome Rome gets her hands on them.
