Medieval Kingdoms: Total War is a total conversion of Total War: Attila with brings the game to the high middle ages, set in the starting year of 1212 AD going until 1453 AD. This mod will completely revamp the game with new factions, units and much much more! (Yes this is the same mod team as for the Rome 2 version.)

Post news Report RSS Medieval Kingdoms Total War : Duchy of Lorraine

MK Newcomer Arizen Fox has made his first roster, the Duchy of Lorraine.

Posted by on

The Duchy of (Upper) Lorraine



The duchy of Lorraine evolved out of the Carolingian kingdom of Lotharingia. In 975, the kingdom was divided into the duchies of Upper Lorraine and Lower Lorraine. The area that formed Lower Lorraine was passed to the dukes of Brabant in 1100. They ceased to use the duchy's title ('Lothier') in 1190, so Lower Lorraine ceased to exist as a separate entity. Upper Lorraine was the sole surviving bearer of the name, and after 1190 it dropped the prefix of 'upper', becoming the sole duchy of Lorraine. Lorraine is the border duchy of the HRE, bordering the Burgundy to the west, with the HRE to the duchy's east. Because of this, I have units using French, German, and in tier three mostly, Alsatian (the prevalent language of Lorraine at the time) to show how Lorraine was influenced by varying cultures on all sides.

I would like to personally thank slytacular for his council, guidance, and advise on the Lorraine. I would also like to thank Luke George of Bologna for helping out with research of names and other general history questions, and Ltd. for his help with the different parts of the faction-making process.

Any feedback or suggestions are always appreciated!

So the Kurzschwertreiter do not kurzschwert (totally not a made-up verb), they have a short spear instead of a short sword. Just a little odd to me as a German.

Remove "dismounted" versions of units, it is stupid cuz we can dismount original units.
