Guelphs and Ghibellines
Guelphs and Ghibellines drives you through the art of warfare in XIIIth century Italy. The game captures at a tactical level the climax of the long struggle for the predominance of Italy during this century. After the death of the German Emperor Frederick II, the struggle extended for the predominance of the most important cities in Tuscany, passed through the death of Manfred in the battle of Benevento, which marks the end of the Swabian dominium in Italy and the take-over of the Angioin dynasty over the Reign of Naples, and finally the defeat of the last Ghibelline cities in Tuscany at Campaldino.
Guelphs and Ghibellines simulates the traditional clashes between XIIIth century armies with an original system which is both simple and accurate, allowing to reproduce typical tactics of the battle of the era, and focusing on progressive combat fatigue and loss of cohesion of formations on the battlefield. Cavalry remains the Queen of the battlefield, but the Italian communal infantry (the best in its period) manages to have a sound impact on the outcome of the fight. The three historical battles featured in this tactical and strategic simulation game are Benevento 1266, Campaldino 1289, and Montaperti 1260.
