Philip of Spain is a man of strong convictions. As the successor of Charles V, the most powerful emperor post-renaissance Europe has ever seen, Philip has quite a legacy to live up to. His expansive wars stretched from Italy to the Netherlands, and encompassed the New World as well. Unfortunately for France, the Emperor’s ambitions goes north as well. Philip had not forgotten the many wars his father fought with the French Kings, and with central order in France nearing collapse, all it takes is one French Lord to ask Philip for help before Spanish influence pours into France like it did all over Europe and the new world.
