    You have actively persecuted the Latino population of Tejas, both before and after your assumption of dictatorial powers. We will not remit one would-be generalissimo into the custody of another. The legality and morality of Ramirez's actions will be the subject of an independent and unbiased judiciary. Then, once a Tejan government which we, the world, the Tejan people, and above all God can recognize as legitimate exists, we will discuss his extradition.

    As the current government in Hanover is illegitimate, any annexation of Hanover by the League of the Rhine would be illegal and will not be tolerated by Saxony-Bavaria.

    The integration of Hanover into the League of the Rhine will proceed apace and at the Council's discretion. An agreement will be drawn up, signed, and made public for all interested parties to view. We have support from various allies in this endeavor, and as Saxony-Bavaria nor Prussia hold votes in the Council we see very little reason to give their opinions weight.

    To The Provisional Republican Government of Hanover, and King George V of Hanover,
    From Sergei Obruchev, foreign minister to Her Imperial Majesty, Tsarina Alexandra, of Russia


    The illegal overthrow of the rightful king of Hanover is of grave concern to the people of Russia and to her imperial majesty, Tsarina Alexandra. At the same time, we cannot ignore that the republican overthrow did not occur in a vacuum, that King George V and his court were no doubt ignoring legitimate popular grievances.

    I, Minister Obruchev, offer you a diplomatic solution whereby the King of Hanover would be reinstated to this throne under a new constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament that would work in conjunction with the monarchy to ensure that the will of the people was not ignored. Alternatively, if all parties are willing, you might consider placing the current heir on the throne such that the king's line continues but that King George V, who you obviously detest, not return to kingship.

    Based partially on the Russian Duma and our own parliament, the Obruchev Agreement, as members of my ministry are fond of calling it, would serve as a model for reconciliation and compromise, of the path of peace in the face of violence.

    Should you both wish for Russia to assist you in implementing this compromise solution that would see kingly legitimacy and grace matched with republican representation and populism, I would be personally very willing to assist your nation in drawing up a new constitution.

    What say you two parties?


    To Kingdoms of Prussia and Saxony-Bavaria,
    From Sergei Obruchev, foreign minister to Her Imperial Majesty, Tsarina Alexandra, of Russia


    Russia has repeatedly stated that it is committed to peace in Europe. When asked which ‘side of the conflict’ it would fall upon (by both major European camps), we have repeated answered that we would side with that of peace and do what we can to maintain the current status quo. Traditionally we have been allies with Austria-Hungary, Denmark, and Prussia, and enemies of Saxony-Bavaria and France but the new balance of power means that such ancient alliances simply no longer exist. Russia must forge a new path and this path must be dedicated to the pursuit of peace in Europe and to the maintenance of legitimacy and order throughout the continent.

    When we hear your nations speaking of interfering in Hanover, implicit militarily, the Russian court cringes. Let us make this as clear as we possibly can. Russia will not support the military adventurism of any European nation interfering in the internal affairs of another European nation. If you do not approve of the Hannover annexation, it is not proper, or acceptable, for you to show your displeasure with threats. That would be like us stating, “If you go to war with Hanover, we will join with the kingdoms of Denmark, Austria-Hungary, and France, in countering your belligerence and interference.” Surely this example, purely hypothetical we assure you, makes clear how unwelcome such outside interference can be in the internal affairs of a rightful European nation.

    Please, desist your threats.

    To Council of the League of the Rhine
    From Sergei Obruchev, foreign minister to Her Imperial Majesty, Tsarina Alexandra, of Russia


    Russia considers the internal affairs of the League of the Rhine their own to conduct as they see fit. Should Hanover willingly and peacefully choose to join the League of the Rhine, we too see little reason for other nations to interfere in this affair.

    Unfortunately, at the current time, President Dubois cannot agree. President Dubois presently has every intention of holding elections, but fears that the continued presence of Ramirez as a free man, even outside our country, could have a negative and destabilizing influence on the elections. So we ask that Ramirez be released into the custody of the Republic of Tejas, then we will hold elections, with international observers if you so desire.

    To: Russia
    CC: The World
    From: Provisional Government of the Republic of Hanover


    As representatives of the peace-loving people of Hanover, who (it must be reminded) removed the despotic former monarch in response to his actions taken against the peaceful protestors who only sought reform, we have no desire to replace the monarchy, regardless of the degree of power it is to have or whoever might sit atop the throne.

    Nevertheless, we will repeat our previous statement: we shall release George and his family to whichever country they choose to emigrate to, provided that George and his family agree to forever renounce all claims to the throne of Hanover.

    In any case, the representatives of the people of Hanover welcome union with our brothers in the Rhineland.

    To: The World
    From: George V, King of Hanover (Communique sent from prison)


    I welcome any steps taken to restore myself to my rightful throne; but I will not accept any limitation of power or being forced to share power with the anarchist bomb-throwers who illegally seized the government of my country.

    I shall also restate my opposition to this illegal attempt to incorporate my country into the fractious union of states that calls itself the League of the Rhine.

    We are getting distracted from the original issue which is the illegal disposition of the Hanoverian Monarchy. We also notice that Russia likes to discuss the balance of power and how important it is, all while disregarding the effect that the annexation of Hanover by the League of the Rhine would have on the balance of power. We would sincerely appreciate some consistency. That being said, we would like for all concerned parties to address these issues separately.

    Furthermore, Saxony-Bavaria supports the Russian proposal of restoring the Hanoverian monarchy in a limited capacity under a constitutional system, and furthermore is not opposed to placing the current heir to Hanover on the throne instead of the current rightful monarch.

    Finally, we condemn the opportunistic approach taken by the League of the Rhine and once again point out that it is illegal and intolerable for them to annex Hanover through permission granted by an illegitimate government. And as Hanover is not annexed yet, it is NOT an internal affair. Claiming it as such is ridiculous. It is our business because it effects us.

    While Her Supreme Majesty's government is not enthused by the potential of instability and disrespect for the sovereignty of monarchs and of nations within Germany, France has no interest in escalating what is evidently a serious diplomatic crisis on the continent. Our signature of the Lubeck Agreement rests on the predication that a tripartite compact between France, Denmark and Austria-Hungary would further the goal of continental stability and consensus, not disrupt it. We will tread very carefully in these matters and would advise our allies to do the same, lest they destroy the good and justice that is peace and prosperity in Europe with the rashness of their actions and bellicosity of their words.

    The balance of power will be maintained in spite of your best efforts. Europe will not stand for a German Custom Union power play on this matter. Austria-Hungary stands beside the Rhine League and the monarchy of Hanover, both, on the matter of restoration. The annexation of Hanover into the League is none of Prussia or Saxony-Bavaria's concern. It anchors central Europe against the tidal wave of German ambition. Further pushing the issue brings no swift victory and much misery to the German cause. It is better for the people. It is better for order. The warnings of your neighbors to toe the line for peace should not go unheeded.

    Complaining like a petulant brat is behavior most unbecoming of a King; Denmark is washing its hands of this matter. Know that we have tried to work with you, but clearly you are beyond our help.

    We accept this treaty, and hope that this is the beginning of a strong friendship between our nations.

    OOC: Um... I don't think that's actually a treaty, considering that there are no terms that have actually been negotiated yet. :p

    We have yet to propose any terms. We will soon send a messenger to Lisbon with our proposed terms.

    I will unfortunately likely be rather busy (and therefore slow to respond) for most of the coming weakened. So if there's anything you need answered/addressed soon, please send it to me immediately.

    Due to negotiations with the The League of The Rhine, Prussia will be accepting the annexation of Hanover as legal, should it be done in a process that reflects the needs of Hanover. The Hanoverian royal family is still invited to take up residence in Prussia, unless they wish to remain in Hanover.

    As a Dominion of Portugal, we request to see the proposed terms of this agreement as well, in order to ensure future cooperation and voice any concerns to Lisbon regarding acceptable terms.

    Saxony-Bavaria also recognizes the annexation of Hanover, and furthermore we note that despite the best efforts of Austria-Hungary, peace and diplomacy have won the day.

    We still do not recognize the Republic of Hanover and urge the League of the Rhine to work towards a peaceful solution.
