Brandenburg is a duchy located in the German region. In 1444, it borders Mecklenburg and Pomerania to the north, Teutonic Order and Poland to the east, Bohemia and Saxony to the south, Brunswick to the west, and three OPMs. Brandenburg starts as an Elector of the HRE, six provinces that total 55 development, and a reconquest casus belli against Teutonic Order over Neumark. It starts in a good position to form either Prussia or Germany.
