Flag of Thrace Thrace is a regional power in the Balkans, controlling the coastal south and east of the region of Thrace proper. Founded as a Flag of Argead Empire Argead satrapy assigned to Lysimachus after the death of Alexander the Great, Thrace in 450 AUC is the smallest and weakest of the remaining Diadochi states, allied with Flag of Macedon Macedon in the face of Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid dominance over Asia but facing stiff odds unless Flag of Egypt Egypt and the Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid Empire can be convinced to join the fray. Historically this coalition would emerge victorious in the last major war of the Diadochi, with Thrace given western Anatolia as its share of the former Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid lands and extending its rule over the smaller states of the northern coast, eventually extending its rule over Flag of Macedon Macedon as well after the fall of the Antipatrid dynasty. This success would prove to be short lived, with Thrace falling briefly to the Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukos himself in 281 BC and then a revived Flag of Macedon Macedon under the Ptolemaic prince Ptolemy Keraunos before the kingdom's collapse at the hands of the Flag of Galatia Gauls. The Lysimachid dynasty itself would survive in the Flag of Egypt Egypt Ptolemaic client state of Telmessos for many decades afterwards, while Thrace itself would be divided between Antigonid Flag of Macedon Macedon, a resurgent Flag of Odrysia Odrysia and Flag of Getia Getia, and various independent city-states.

The Wars of the Diadochi[edit]

Main article: Diadochi events

At start, all the Diadochi states will receive an event that gives them claims on all of the western half of the former Flag of Argead Empire Argead Empire and access to the special Legacy of Alexander wargoal, allowing them to easily declare war and conquer territory from each other. For Thrace, these claims will go away on the death of the first ruler.

Fourth War of the Diadochi[edit]

Shortly after the game starts, the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom will receive an event to make an ultimatum against Flag of Macedon Macedon, demanding they retreat from their remaining holdings in Greece. If war breaks out, after a few months Flag of Egypt Egypt and then the Flag of Seleukid Empire Seleukid Empire may join the fray and demand territorial concessions or go to war; some months after that, Thrace will also receive an event that will let it join the fray and directly declare war on the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonids or present an ultimatum to cede the border regions of Asia and Bithynia in exchange for a truce.

Amastris marriage events[edit]

A few years into the game, Lysimachus will receive an event allowing him to propose his historical marriage to Amastris, the queen of Flag of Heraclea Pontica Heraclea Pontica. He can then choose to extend the offer, which if accepted will have Amastris will leave Flag of Heraclea Pontica Heraclea Pontica to her heir and join Lysimachus in Thrace who will extend a guarantee to her old kingdom, or get claims on the area to extend Thrace's influence more aggressively.

Pergamon events[edit]

If 20px Pergamon is released from the Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom as the result of the The Antigonid Cause Wavers event and Lysimachus is still alive, Thrace will get an event to either offer tributary status to the newly released country or get claims on the bordering provinces, representing Thrace's historical expansion into the area. 20px Pergamon can also be released as a client state if Thrace manages to conquer much of Asia from Flag of Antigonid Kingdom Antigonid Kingdom.

Odrysia events[edit]

In the early part of the game, Thrace will get an event allowing it to choose how to deal with Flag of Odrysia Odrysia, with choices including declaring war to directly annex it, seizing several neighbouring territories, and forcibly converting it into a client state. This is useful as Flag of Odrysia Odrysia beings as a tribal vassal, which cannot be integrated or annexed without breaking the subject relationship altogether.

Flavor events[edit]

Thrace also has a few flavour events revolving around Lysimachus and his history as a bodyguard and companion of Alexander the Great himself.


As a Hellenistic culture group monarchy, Thrace has access to the decision to reform 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.
