Follow-up Comment #4, patch #1238 (project freeciv): I agree that it's hard to define the boundaries of these counties. In fact, the map of the County of Toulouse shown in the French wikipedia shows the county of Roussillon as part of the county of Toulouse in 1154. I have found no other source that confirms this. As far as I know, it was an independent county that became part of the kingdom of Aragon in 1172. Before the formal annexion, it had been the birthplace of the first Catalan count, and that's why it's always considered Catalan. This goes for Perpignan. But the Prades you mention is indeed Occitan.
Daniel is the expert, here, but I believe that, for non-modern nations, it's OK in Freeciv to include cities that have been part of the empire at some point in time. I agree that it would be a good thing to include some women as rulers. I am not sure that Joana is considered a "good" queen for Occitans,though, since she is the one that "sold out" to the French King. If we expand the scope to all the Occitan counties and duchies, there is another excellent candidate, though: Alienòr d'Aquitània (Eleanor of Aquitaine), who must have been an extraordinary woman, who actually ruled as a duchess of Aquitaine, became Queen of France, divorced, married an English prince and became the mother of two English Kings (Richard the Lionheart and John Lackland). During her extremely long rule as Duchess (from the age of 15 until her death at 82) she had a very important role in European politics. So, if you want to add rulers or cities to the Occitan ruleset, feel free. Or I can do it for you, as you like. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?1238> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
