The Turkoman Menace Returns?

Merchants report that to the distant South-West the Turk is amassing a large army with designs upon Christendom!

The rumours have yet to be confirmed but we fear for the safety of our children and tender womenfolk should such an invasion succeed.

The ever bellicose Sultan Ahmed appears eager to avenge his recent defeat near Beograd (1717) at which our armed forces and present Sovereign played such an active part.

Envoys have been sent to Constantinople in an attempt to clarify the position and, if possible, avert war.

However should our initiatives fail, we thank the Almighty that we are led by Princes so well versed in combat against the Mohammadens!

    Hopefully so - every Imagi-Nation (peaceful Monte-Cristo excepted!) needs an enemy, and Ottomans would provide a sOOO colorful one!
