1794: The Birth of British Autocracy
January 1794
The annexation of Spain is complete. Soon, Iberia will be entirely under our control! I have ordered the HMS Brittania into the North Atlantic with Colonel Fraser in tow. A Military Academy in Castile is under construction. It will assist in quartering all the troops we are amassing there. The English military academy continues to pour out fresh regiments of Line Infantry as ordered.

Our merchant harbor in England is now complete, along with the new military academy in Castile. The Brittania reported sighting a French sloop hiding out in the North Atlantic before sailing south to Finistrerre. Colonel Picton has been ordered into the new Military Academy in Castile to make room for Colonel Fraser's arrival. The English military academy continues to pour out fresh regiments of Line Infantry as ordered.

March 1794
There has been a dramatic strengthening of political control in London this month. The King has announced that he intends to adopt some of the brave new ideas coming out of the British intellectual community. His political enemies have taken to calling him a Dictator. To support his new military aims, the Academy has shifted research into Advanced Officer Training.

Colonel Fraser has landed in Castile and should begin replenishing the combat losses of the Battle of Salamanca next month. A Portuguese sloop was sighted off Cape Finistrerre. It refused to lower its colors and flagrantly sailed near La Corunna. The King has decided to declare war upon these impudent Portuguese dogs. The English military academy continues to pour out fresh regiments of Line Infantry as ordered.

The Portuguese sloop has fled south. Our army, led by Colonel Wellington, has been replenished to full strength from Fraser's reinforcements. I have ordered it to march into Alentejo and crush the Portuguese resistance there. Fraser and his ragged regiments have been ordered into Andalusia. There should be no Portuguese forces there and I expect Andalusia to immediately fall to us.

On other diplomatic fronts I have mixed news. Disturbing Russian army movements in Sweden and Finland have alarmed the Norwegian locals. They are paranoid after so many Danish war declarations. I have sent reassurances that the Russians will not invade, but I cannot convince myself fully of this just yet. Savoy has accepted peace for a modest sum under the requirement that it be spent on British raw materials.

The annexation of Portugal is in its final stage. Barnard, confident of impending success in Portugal, has returned to Castile to prepare to re-board the British fleet once they army is no longer needed in Iberia. A Piedemontese sloop was sighted off East Iberian coast carry an army. It looks like we took down Portugal before they could get the chance. The English military academy continues to pour out fresh regiments of Line Infantry as ordered.
