Sarah Tintagyl Posted May 26, 2010 Report Share Posted May 26, 2010 With the Galician War finally wrapped up and a French foothold on the Iberian Peninsula secure, Therese's next goal was security. The world, while not being particularly attentive to the happenings on Iberia was still threatening and there were still areas of France that were extremely vulnerable to foreign attack. Nowhere was this more clear than the southern regions, those closest to the Sicilian League and the New Palma Republic. Palma, which had arisen from the destroyed Molakia was without a doubt a sleeping giant, already advancing in cloning technology, a massive army and population, and the potential, as well as perhaps the desire to grow outside of the islands they had inherited from the Rebel Army and from Molakia. It was an ally that Therese desperately wanted to have and one that from seeing from current politics, one that Athens had already claimed for themselves. Strange as it was, the balancing beam between Western and Eastern Europe was centered in the Western Mediterranean, in truth, the destiny of Europe, rested on Palma, whether it knew it or not. Therefore an alliance was desired and a letter was sent. [quote] [i][b]TO: President Edward Moshum, of the New Palma Republic From: Therese Zelle, Empress of the Third French Empire[/b][/i] [i] Excellency, For the existence of such a strong nation as yourself and in close proximity to the Empire it is an absolute wonder and sin that you and I have not been able to discuss properly the balance of power that exists in Europe right now. Only across a bit of sea can France and Palma see each other and yet we have done little more than send the approval of an invitation to a conference that has not yet since occurred. In spite of this, I would be blessed to be able to see the beginnings of relations between your state and my own to discuss the possibility of furthering both French and Palmese ambitions in the world and at home, to strengthen our economies, and perhaps the chance to lend support to one another militarily if push came to shove. However beyond all that President, I want the oppratunity to finally meet my neighbor to the south, a personal meeting and one I hope that both of us leave with a greater understanding of each other. Therefore if you would be so kind to accept my invitation, please come to Paris and then to Versailles and we will spend the day in the gardens talking of things both concerning and non-concerning the future of Europe. Sincerely, Therese Zelle[/i] [/quote] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
