It's nice to see someone who left your alliance while you were at war ends up as your leader. Congrats, nonetheless.

Well, considering that I'm the King I think that would make me the leader.... and since I fought every single day we were at war without going into peace mode or anything I don't think you're talking about me

My apologies... I missed 'King', xD. I was referring to Archduke. I was like "Wait, what... Britishdude resigned?"...
