Sons of Carthage – Southern Spain and Sicily (Done)

This is the last part of this achievement run. Although kicking out Portugal and occupying Lisbon aren’t related to the achievement, but it is necessary to weaken the Iberian alliance. Also, France allied Spain and Portugal. This makes the achievement more challenging. However, as Austria and Ottoman didn’t declare war on each other, I still can have them as allies and use one of them to deal with France meanwhile my march and me can deal with the Spanish and Portuguese.

PS: I am not sure forming Al Andalus prevent getting this achievement because it switch culture, and its requirement at Iberia is very similar of getting this achievement. Maybe if I will be continue playing, I will take over Rome?

Another unnecessary war for the achievement, but wanted to dominate the trades in Alexandria, at least have more trade power than Ottoman

France kicked me out of Spain, but my scorched earth tactic made it lose a lot of manpower, and can’t do anything after I blocked the Gilbaltar strait

20161211000611_1

France gave me this much after having low war enthusiasm

20161211000643_1
