The Prince of Kios

Mithridates, the prince of Kios, has appeared in [ROOT.GetCountry.GetCapital.GetName] seeking refuge from the wrath of [mithridates_overlord.GetRuler.GetPraenomen], the ruler of Antigonid Kingdom who they suspect covets their realm. The aristocrat apparently has wealth to spare, and has promised us gifts if we are willing to help him.

Taking him in would certainly not make us particularly popular in Antigonid Kingdom, but when did we ever really care what they thought of us anyway? These are [ROOT.GetCountry.GetAdjective] lands, and we will decide what will be done here.

Pontic Ambition

Since our arrival in Paphlagonia, it has become clear that the petty states of northern Asia, which have gone unchecked in the vacuum left by Alexander's death and the Diadochi wars, are weak and divided.

The nobility of Pontus are not convinced by their current leadership, and may willingly accept Mithridates as their king, especially given his noble Persian pedigree.

Mithridatic Solution

The new realm Mithridates has carved out in Paphlagonia has always been seen as threat, but the weakness of our leadership has called into question the value this Persian noble could have to our people as a unifying and steadfast ruler of Pontus.

The fractious bickering since the fall of the Persian empire could at last be behind us...

The Hellenistic Pontus

Pontus has long been split between the Pontic people of the highlands, and the Greeks living along the coastline. Despite fairly different traditions, they have so far co-existed peacefully, but it is still more difficult to shape our administration with the governance of both in mind.

With the powerful successor kingdoms of Alexander, Greek language and customs have become more widespread, from Magna Graecia all the way to the lands of India in the far east. Maybe it is time we start looking towards a more Hellenistic solution for ourselves as well?

Diadochi Aggression

Event trigger.png The below description is one of several available for this event.

The Diadochi kingdoms, ever desirous for greater dominion over the Mysian coast, have now dropped all pretence by having our ruler Mithradates murdered in cold blood - there is no other explanation!

Mithradates, a close personal friend of Demetrios Antigonid, was informed and recalled to [GetCountry('KIO').GetCapital.GetName] to succeed over his father as ruler.

Our forefathers ruled here before these petty usurpers first sucked air; we must now look to the survival of the Mithridatic dynasty. Some argue we head into the disputed regions of Paphlagonia and gather a following there.

The Prince of Kios

The Mithridatic dynasty, which until recently lorded over only the Mysian city of Kios, has now risen to rule over the kingdom of Pontus in northern Cappadocia, an area lost to bickering local dynasts by the diadochi. These developments will surely have long lasting effects on the future of the region.
