Heiliges Römisches Reich deutscher Nation: Landkarte für Kabinettskrieg

I have spent much of today preparing to play my new game of Kabinettskrieg. Fitting the 17 maps of northern and central Europe together was quite a task. After fitting together the jig-saw puzzle I thought I'd make a map key to help assemble the maps more efficiently in future. I decided to superimpose the game maps on a period political map of Europe, thereby showing the states of the Holy Roman Empire at the same time. Of course this 1789 map shows Silesia as Electorate of Brandenburg territory, which it became after it was taken by conquest from the Habsburgs (Austrians) in the Silesian Wars.
