Holy Roman Empire

Leader of the Holy Roman Empire:
Leopold I; Leopold I (name in full: Leopold Ignaz Joseph Balthasar Felician; Hungarian: I. Lipót) Habsburg, Holy Roman emperor, King of Hungary, King of Bohemia, was the second son of the emperor Ferdinand III and his first wife Maria Anna of Spain. His maternal grandparents were Philip III of Spain and Margaret of Austria. He was also a first cousin of his rival, Louis XIV of France.

He became heir apparent on 9 July 1654 by the death of his elder brother Ferdinand IV, and reigned as Holy Roman Emperor during the Great Turkish War. Leopold's reign has been marked by his military successes against the Ottoman Empire in the Great Turkish War.

Affiliates of the Holy Roman Empire

Russian Ruler: Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov; the Russian Ruler during the times of the Great Turkish War. He commands all the military forces of Russia.

Polish Ruler: Michael Korybut Wiśniowiecki; The King of Poland around the time the Holy League was developed. He serves Leopold I, and commands the Polish forces against the Ottoman Empire.

Spanish Ruler: Charles II; Charles II is the last Habsburg King of Spain and the ruler of nearly all of Italy (except Piedmont, the Papal States, The Republic of Lucca and the Republic of Venice), the Spanish territories in the Southern Low Countries, and Spain's overseas Empire, stretching from Mexico to the Philippines. He is noted for his extensive physical, intellectual, and emotional problems – along with the consequent ineffectual rule – as well as his role in the developments preceding the War of Spanish Succession.

Doge of Venice: Domenico II Contarini; Domenico had allied Venice with the Holy League against the Ottoman Empire, and Venice was in fact one of the first territories to have been given a declaration of war from the Ottoman Empire. Doge Domenico II Contarini is in charge of the armed forces of Venezia.

Ottoman Empire

Sultan of the Ottoman Empire: Mehmed IV; Mehmed IV is the Ruler of the Ottoman Empire, he is leading his Imperial Forces against the Holy League recognizably led by Emperor Leopold I. His Empire is large and powerful.

Other Nations

Shogun of Japan: Tokugawa Tsunayoshi; he is the current Shogun of Japan, and the 5th in his line. He is known for instituting animal protection laws, particularly for dogs. This has earned him the nickname of "dog shogun".

Emperor of China: Kangxi Emperor; the Kangxi Emperor is the 3rd Emperor of the Manchu-led Qing Dynasty, and the 2nd Qing Emperor to rule over China proper. The people love and admire the Kangxi Emperor. He is responsible for many victories within China, against Taiwan, Mongolia, etc...

King of France: Louis XIV, the Great, the Sun King; Louis began personally governing France in 1661 after the death of his prime minister, the Italian Cardinal Mazarin. An adherent of the theory of the divine right of kings, which advocates the divine origin and lack of temporal restraint of monarchical rule, Louis continued his predecessors' work of creating a centralized state governed from the capital. He sought to eliminate the remnants of feudalism persisting in parts of France and, by compelling the noble elite to inhabit his lavish Palace of Versailles, succeeded in pacifying the aristocracy, many members of which had participated in the Fronde rebellion during Louis' minority. He is known to be one of France's greatest Kings.

King of Great Britain: King Charles II; Charles II's father King Charles I was executed at Whitehall on 30 January 1649, at the climax of the English Civil War. The English Parliament did not proclaim Charles II as king, and instead passed a statute that made any such proclamation unlawful. England entered the period known to history as the English Interregnum or the English Commonwealth and the country was a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. The Parliament of Scotland, however, proclaimed Charles II king on 5 February 1649 in Edinburgh. He was crowned King of Scotland at Scone on 1 January 1651. Following his defeat by Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651, Charles fled to mainland Europe and spent the next nine years in exile in France, the United Provinces and the Spanish Netherlands.

A political crisis following the death of Cromwell in 1658 resulted in Charles being invited to return and assume the throne in what became known as the Restoration. Charles II arrived on English soil on 27 May 1660 and entered London on his 30th birthday, 29 May 1660. After 1660, all legal documents were dated as if Charles had succeeded his father in 1649. Charles was crowned King of England and Ireland at Westminster Abbey on 23 April 1661.

Charles's English parliament enacted anti-Puritan laws known as the Clarendon Code, designed to shore up the position of the re-established Church of England. Charles acquiesced to the Clarendon Code even though he himself favored a policy of religious tolerance.

Ruler of Portugal: Alfonso VI; the twenty-second (or twenty-third according to some historians) king of Portugal and the Algarves, the second of the House of Braganza, known as "the Victorious" (Portuguese o Vitorioso).

At the age of three, Afonso suffered an illness that left him paralyzed on the left side of his body, as well as leaving him mentally unstable. His father created him 10th Duke of Braganza.

After the 1653 death of his eldest brother Teodósio, Prince of Brazil, Afonso became the heir-apparent to the throne of the kingdom. He received also the crown-princely title 2nd Prince of Brazil.

He succeeded his father (João IV) in 1656 at the age of thirteen. His mother, (Luisa of Medina-Sidonia) was named regent in his father's will. His mental instability and paralysis, plus his disinterest in government, left his mother as regent for six years, until 1662. Afonso oversaw military victories over the Spanish at Ameixial (8 June 1663) and Montes Claros (17 June 1665), culminating in the final Spanish recognition of Portugal's independence on 13 February 1668 in the Treaty of Lisbon.
