Westphalia is the name of a country event, and also of the nation that can be released after this event occurs. Some misunderstanding of this event is prevalent. Westphalia is not a nation that a player can change into deliberately, like Great Britain or Germany. Rather, this event is more like the Colonial Quest for Independence events in that they give cores to non-existing nations, allowing them to be released voluntarily or in peace treaties, or possibly freed by rebels.

Initially it was a small duchy established in the 12th century east of the Rhine River but over time the area grew in importance especially during the Middle Ages as several cities in the Westphalian region such as Münster and Osnabrück prospered as members of the Hanseatic League.
Option A: Support the idea of a Westphalian Nation
  • Westphalia receives cores on:
Westfalen (Lippe, in EU3/NA)


The map below (old, NA.gif) shows the provinces one needs to own before the event will fire (darker colour), and also which provinces will receive Westphalian cores (lighter colour). Note that the map shows correctly that no one can 'form' Westphalia.
