In the Grand Campaign, Württemberg tends to ally with Westphalia, Bavaria, and/or Hannover. Its alliances with these countries and Austria make it difficult to attack without arousing the ire of many factions.
Despite its limited resources and land, Württemberg has an unusual edge in enlightenment technologies over most other factions. However, it generally remains relatively weak throughout the game, as it is surrounded by strong neighbors and has limited resources of its own.
Württemberg shares much of the same unit roster with Austria, having access to unusual units such as Windbüchse Jaegers and Hungarian Hussars. However, as most of these units require specific regions outside of Württemberg to be trained, it rarely gets to field them. As it only controls a minor region and rarely expands, it usually has access to just what a Military Governor's Barracks can create.
Württemberg was a country formed as a duchy in the 1400s, and it fought in almost all of the wars in Central Europe and wars involving Austria and Prussia. Württemberg helped Napoleon of France in the Napoleonic Wars (1792-1815). Eventually, it was incorporated into the German Empire following the Prusso-Austrian War. Württemberg is part of Germany to this day.
- The flag used by Württemberg is based on a possibly mistaken early 20th century state flag of the Kingdom of Württemberg consisting of a combination of the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Württemberg and the flag of the Kingdom of Württemberg. All of those symbols are anachronistic for the period of Empire: Total War as they were adopted in 1817.
