Territorial expansion of the Empire

Byzantium Nova

Recommended Posts

As the population of the Byzantine Empire has exceded 1 billion the housing and feeding people has become a problem. Some time ago a new building program had been decided and the result is two brand new cities of Ohrid and Ikonion. Also several new military bases were built along the borders.


However the food production of the Empire has reached its limits and it has been decided that new land must be annexed somewhere. The fertile lands along the river Halys east of the Empire were natural choice because they have long been in contact with the empire but also have been lacking an effective political identity and thus been governed by Byzantine influenced leaders. This is why Emperor Andronicus has given permission to army and civilian leaders to begin integrating the area fully into the Empire.
