Westphalia is an emergent faction in Napoleon: Total War.

General InformationEdit

Westphalia emerges if the region of Cleves-Mark (initially held by Prussia) has a successful rebellion or is liberated. The region of Cleves-Mark borders the Batavian Republic to the north-west, Oldenburg to the north, French-held Hannover to the north-east, Hessen to the south-east, and French-held Flanders & Wallonia to the south-west (though who holds these regions may well be very different by the time Westphalia emerges).

The region of Cleves-Mark is small, but it is home to an Iron Mine and a manufacturing building slot. This, in conjunction with Westphalia's unusually good unit roster, can make Westphalia a powerful minor faction. 


Below are a list of grievances/friendships other factions have with Westphalia if it emerges. This list is exhaustive; factions that are not listed do not have friendships or grievances (they are neutral).

Westphalia has a robust unit roster for a minor faction, with access to guards, light infantry, and a good selection of light and heavy cavalry. In particular, Westphalia has the unusual distinction of having the ability to recruit unlimited horse guard cavalry. On the other hand, Westphalia lacks grenadiers, skirmishers, and lance cavalry. It has a basic selection of artillery and a fairly large ship roster, though neither are immediately available when it emerges due to it being a landlocked faction and it having a single-slot capital (which the A.I usually prioritizes building military buildings for).
