As a Kurfürst, the ruler of Saxony benefits from certain prestige and privileges to influence his election of the future emperor. One of these benefits can be a greatly improved equipment for him and his knightly host, and the allowance to hire the legendary Rhenish Knights. Urban soldiers, however, are neglected and might therefore fight less efficiently in times of war.

Historical BackgroundEdit

With the Imperial Bull of 1356 the duke of Saxony was promoted into a Kurfürst or elector. Considering certain rules and rank-orders, he was therefore enabled to vote for the future Holy Roman Emperor. The seven electors, the Archbishops of Mainz, Cologne and Trier, the Count Palatine of the Rhine, the Duke of Saxony, the Margrave of Brandenburg, and the king of Bohemia, had the power to vote and decide who would be the new emperor, giving them much prestige in the provess. They were granted immunity, the coinage prerogative, the right to charge customs, the "Judenregal", as well as the "privilegium de non evocando"(the right to judge first without a royal court) and the "privilegium de non appellando"(the Kurfürst was the the highest judge over his subordinates).
