"Map showing provinces that can form France"

Provinces that can form France

Should it cease to exist, France can be recreated by revolt or releasing a vassal at any point during the game. Its culture will be French and its religion usually Catholic. France must contain one of the following provinces:

  • Auvergne
  • Berri
  • Bourgogne
  • Caux
  • Champagne
  • Ile de France (the default capital)
  • Limousin
  • Lyonnais
  • Maine
  • Nivernais
  • Normandie
  • Orleanais
  • Picardie

From French Minors Edit

"map showing Ile de France"

Ile de France

Various minor French countries have an event called ‘’The Crown of France’’. This event allows them to become France should they own Ile de France when France does not exist.

For Auvergne, Brittany, Guyenne, Orleans, and Provence, this has to happen between 1st January 1420 and 1st January 1515. For Navarra, it has to happen between 1st January 1480 and 1st January 1575.

It should be noted that achieving this with Brittany will give France Gaelic culture. Achieving it with Navarra will give France Basque culture from a 1419 start, and both Basque and Iberian on a 1492 start.

AI Priorities Edit

France uses the France AI file. This means that it has the following priorities:

Colonization Edit

"Map showing North and Central American provinces French countries will try to colonise"

North & Central American colonies

"Map showing South American provinces French Countries will try to colonise"

South American colonies

"Map showing African provinces French countries will try to colonise"

African colonies

"Map showing Indian provinces French countries will try to colonise"

Indian colonies

France will attempt to colonise up to 5 provinces at the same time, and establish a trading post 50% of the time. Their bonus for colonising provinces next to ones they already control is 10 (well below the default). Their penalty for colonising provinces next to other countries is 0 (compared to a default of -50).

When colonising, France will prioritise the regions of North America, Caribbean, West Africa, and India (all marked blue on the maps). They will particularly prioritise the following areas (marked red on the maps):

Americas

  • Acadie
  • Antilles
  • Grand Lacs
  • Guiana
  • Haiti
  • Hudson Bay
  • Illinois
  • Louisiane
  • Quebec

Africa

  • Cameroon
  • Congo
  • Gabon
  • Ivory
  • Madagascar
  • Senegal
  • Seychelles
  • The Mascarenes

India

  • Carnatic


Trade Edit

France will send a trader less often than the default AI (40 compared to 100) and is more monopolist than the default AI (having a value of 40 rather than 25 for refusing trade).

War Edit

France is a warmonger (having a warmonger value of 75, as opposed to 10).

In choosing provinces to besiege, it is less likely to focus on attacking provinces with high tax values (a value of 3.0 compared to the default of 5.0), it has a slightly larger preference for besieging multiple provinces (0.2 compared to 0.1), is willing to fight further from home (value of 4 compared to default of 0.5), is less likely to defend/liberate their own provinces (1.5 vs 2.0), is more likely to attack provinces with a low Supply value (setting is 2.0 compared to 1.0), and is significantly more aggressive (5.0 vs 1.0).

France is particularly likely to declare war on the following countries:

In Europe

In the Americas

In India

In Indochina
