Bourgogne Info

Recommended Posts

The pleasant voice of Agnès Noblesse, main announcer of Bourgogne Info, comes online for the first time since the fall of the French Republic.


"The results of the referendum concerning the establishment of the Kingdom of France has come out today. 76% of the population has voted for Henri VII being the King of France. The main opposition has come from the Kingdom of Normaundie and the Burgund region of Lothringen.

Many foreign countries were surprised at the results, saying that it is strange for a German nation to suddenly become French. However, this opinion is based on the incorrect assumption that Burgundy was German to begin with. Although it is true that those of Germanic descent are about 30% of the total population, most of them feel closer to France than to Germany, given how they have lived in the Grand Nation for so long. Only the people in the region of Lothringem, composed of Walloonia and Lorraine, are strictly Germans, and they are the ones opposing the new King. In the case of Normaundie, they are afraid of losing their unique culture, having once faced brutal assimilation attempts by the French Republic.

However, the majority of the citizens welcome the return of the French Monarchy. With Aquitaine claiming to be the true France, many people in Paris are extremely upset with the situation. There has been calls for a second [i]Guerre de Cent Ans[/i] to reclaim the mandate to the Grand Nation. However, former President Karl Martin von Hohenzollern called for calmness, saying "By acting rash, we are only falling into the trap that our enemies have set out for us."


The coronation ceremony will be held at Notre-Dame de Reims on Thrusday."

"Today where was a violent clash in Caen, as a large group of protestors surrounding a Royal Office of Beauregard attempted to storm into the complex. The local [i]Gendarmerie Nationale[/i] had to resort to tear gas to disperse the riot, and several were hurt by the petrol bombs and heavy stones which were thrown. The reason for the protest was the appointment of Theresa Zelle as a Duke of Normandy.

"The coward abandoed us, and now he wants to aput up a woman as a Duke without our consent? It is outrageous!" said a protestor after the riot.

Historically, Normaundie followed Salic law, meaning agnatic succession was the only form allowed. To have Ms. Zelle become a Duke was the biggest cause for the show of anger. To quote a professor of history in the University of Caen, "To break Salic law is to go against the foundation of the Kingdom. Vincent's actions showed he is no more a Norman, and therefore he does not have any power or authority to name a successor to the throne."

The rising dissent in Normaundie, caused by the new Duke and the rise of Henri VII as the King of France, is at a all time high. There has been talks of secession to avoid domination by an outside power, and given how Karl Martin von Hohenzollern was originally elected King because of his advocation of regionalism, it is not hard to see such an event happening."

"It seems that news network in Burgundy is quite Biased," Vincent mused to himself as he watched the news. "Not very smart, either, there is no Duke of Normandy, there is a Duchess." Vincent laughed. "This might be the funniest nation in Europe since Molakia."

Comment from the professor in Caen when there has been questions about the "Duke of Normandy":


"There has never been a title of "Duchess of Normandy". Even the former Queens of England used the title "Duke" because of Salic law. Any references to Duchess is just plain ignorance."

"Jean-Baptiste Cheysson, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the French Republic, has been sentenced to a life term for his role in the discrimination against Alsatians after annexation following the handover of Alsace from the German Democratic Republic.

The French government was committed to aggressively reintegrating the two regions into the republic as loyal French provinces. Accordingly, Cheysson set up a committee charged with establishing the ethnicity of each inhabitant and expelling undesirables was created under the forbidding title of “Commissions de Triage.”

The purges were underscored by French efforts to assign every Alsatian an identity card establishing their ethnic descent. “Pure” Alsatian citizens and émigrés from the French interior were issued “A” cards, while residents with at least one Alsatian parent were given “B” cards. Alsatians born as a result of the union between two foreign parents received “C” cards. At the very bottom of the new social hierarchy, Alsatians with two German parents were issued “D” cards. While identity cards did not confer or deny citizenship in the Third Republic, “A”, “B” and even “C” cards conveyed considerable advantages over ”D” card holders. Employers in Alsace were actively encouraged to dismiss “D” card holders, or at the very least to avoid hiring German-Alsatians. These individuals were also required to exchange their Marks for Francs at an inflated rate as compared to “A” through “C” card holders. At the same time, “D” card holders were prevented from registering to vote, effectively disenfranchising residents of German descent.

It is for such crimes against humanity that Cheysson was sentenced. Burgundy will continue to punish the criminals of the former French Republic. Currently, the former president Alain Mamère is at large, and all efforts to capture him are being done."

"As the coronation of Henri VII comes close, movements for independence from Burgundy has gone up to a new high, as the Celtic Gaulist Movement in the south, Lothringen in the east, and Normaundie in the west. It is beleived that the regionalist policy has made people aim for outright independence."

The Italian Federation finds the disenfranchisement of Burgundy citizens of German descent to be disgusting. The Federation will press for sanctions against Burgundy from other nations in Europe and around the world. Any Burgundy citizens of German descent who wish to emigrate to the Federation will be welcomed with open arms.

We do not need to appeal a policy that is not under our jurisidtion. Alsace is now part of Deutschland and GDR, and it is they who would be doing such things. Also, 30% of Burgundy is of German descent, and everyone can vote.

We shall not even mention the idea of most nations that Burgundy was a Germanic nation. If we discriminated against Germans, how would Burgundy be Germanic?
