This mod requires Brave New World.



Saxony has a long history as a duchy, an electorate of the Holy Roman Empire (the Electorate of Saxony), and finally as a kingdom (the Kingdom of Saxony). In 1918, after Germany's defeat in World War I, its monarchy was overthrown and a republican form of government was established under the current name. The state was broken up into smaller units during communist rule (1949–1989), but was re-established on 3 October 1990 on the reunification of East and West Germany.

Frederick Augustus I[]

Frederick Augustus I 'the Strong' was the Elector of Saxony, Imperial Vicar, and became King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania (as Augustus II). In order to be elected King of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Augustus converted to Roman Catholicism.

As Elector of Saxony, he is perhaps best remembered as a patron of the arts and architecture. He established the Saxon capital of Dresden as a major cultural centre, attracting artists from across Europe to his court. Augustus also amassed an impressive art collection and built lavish baroque palaces in Dresden and Warsaw.

As King of Poland, his reign was successful. He led the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the Great Northern War, which led to the Russian Empire strengthening its influence with the Commonwealth. He achieved internal reforms with his admired wit that led to an enlightenment among Poland at the time, he bolstered royal power in the Commonwealth. Known as being an intellectual he protected to Jagiellonian illuminated order and was on the winning end of the Great Northern War.

Dawn of Man[]

"Welcome, Frederick Augustus I, elector of Saxony. You lead one of the cultural centres of Europe. Saxony is a modest country, with a wealth of art and architecture to its name. Elector to the Holy Roman Empire, Saxony rose to prominence during the 16th century, as home to the Protestant Reformation. In the 17th century, you joined Saxony in union with the Commonwealth of Poland-Lithuania, and embarked upon great projects which would make Dresden the envy of artists the world over. Even today, the legacy of your endeavours persist, and Saxony remains one of the most culturally autonomous states in Germany.

Saxony's UA means you can make wonders easier if you go for a Cultural Victory, and ideally that's what you want to go for. Every National Wonder gives a free Great Artist in addition. The Carabinier Guard gets an additional defense for each National Wonder. An extra bonus to the unit is it gains Defensive Bonuses from terrain. The Kunsthaus gives you an additional Great Work of Art slot in addition to the previous two. Lastly the building is available early at Architecture. The building and UA is the main thing pushing you for the Cultural Victory. The Carabinier Guard is really only for defensive purposes. As with any cultural victory go for the Aesthetic Tree, build the Guilds, and maybe pass the law in  the World Congress. In no time you'll have your enemies in awe of the Jewel of Europe.
