Is there any way to avoid making peace with a city-state you are at war with if their suzerain changes or makes peace with you? In a game I played a while ago Brussels declared war on me when their suzerain did and I realized they had grown to block a path between my cities so I basically needed to conquer them. I was unable to conquer them in time and they automatically made peace with me when a civ I was not at war with became their suzerain. Can I avoid this? I play at Emperor. In my current game as Nubia, I had to declare a protectorate war with Peter when he tried to take Zanzibar. I need those amenities and the cash. If I make peace with him will he leave Zanzibar alone?
