My take: Spoiler : This probably isn't the best 100 turns there could be, but I don't want to replay it. First off I ended the war with Louis. Come to think of it now it wasn't the best idea, but one axeman, the low production rate and the number of archers didn't look like I could harm him in any significant way. Cease fire signed, I started spamming workers in the capital. Upgraded a few tiles, built barracks and swordsmen. Then I declared war on Louis and took Paris, Orleans and a newly built Lyons. As for techs I obviously got fishing, pottery and writing. The I tried for the great lighthouse (masonry&sailing) - not a good idea, as it was far too late to even start and the GLH really wasn't that important. I took currency (alphabet is IMO basically useless in this isolated situation) and calendar (for happiness), then went for Code of Laws to reduce maintenance and boost research. Finally, the map. I didn't build any new cities, the science % was too low (even though I was running a lot of scientists). The unhappy faces are going to disappear in a few turns when we hook up the Calendar resources. From this point getting optics is a priority to find some other civs.
