As the Alsace Town crisis bloomed into a full-scale revolution, King Louis X continued his attempts to shore up power, centralize government and liberalize trade. Yet the nobles and even the church resisted, wishing to keep their old privileges. Though any King worth his salt knows that internal affairs are always important, neglected external affairs are what causes nations to fall.
Thus King Louis X sent envoys to his neighbours:
To Charles VI
The peace between our empires has lasted for many years, and our rulers have considered it one of the cornerstones of the nation's prosperity. The current troubles caused by loss of French farmlands has spiralled my nation into chaos. Therefore I hope that you would reaffirm your commitment to peace in Europe, as well as make a promise that we work to return these lands to France.
Your continued friendship
