This list covers the armies of the Latin Empire and Frankish Greece from the capture of Constantinople until the fatal battle of Kephissos. Thessalonika and Anatolia were lost in 1224, leaving only Constantinople and its surroundings as a rump of the Latin Empire until it fell in 1261. Southern Greece alone then remained under Frankish control, fighting off Byzantine attacks but finally succumbing to its own unpaid Catalan mercenaries. Those wishing a painless introduction to these unlikely and romantic crusader states should read Alfred Duggan's historical novel "Lord Geoffrey's Fancy". The feudal knighthood of Achaia was considered by early 14th century contemporaries to be the best anywhere. Archontes were former Byzantine pronoia holders, regarded by the Franks as feudal gentry. Greeks willingly served their Frankish overlords whose exactions may have been milder than those of Byzantine tax gatherers; religious ties with the Byzantines failed to withstand the Byzantine use of rapacious infidel Turks. Melingoi were Slav hillmen. Minima marked • apply only if more than 4 elements of that nationality are used. Thessalian allies in 1259 must be commanded by an irregular general. Those of 1304 must include Bulgar LH (S). The Catalan Grand Company had a collective leadership when employed by the Romanian Franks, so a Catalan general element should depict a furiously debating committee, rather than the great man, bodyguards and aides!

This list covers the armies of the Latin Empire and Frankish Greece from the capture of Constantinople until the death of the last competent Frankish prince of Achaea. For those wishing a painless introduction to these unlikely and romantic crusader states, I can earnestly recommend Alfred Duggan's historical novel "Lord Geoffrey's Fancy." The minimums marked apply only if more than 18 figures of that nationality are used. The minimums marked ?? apply only if any Epirot troops are used. The minimums marked ??? apply only if any Catalan troops are used. Catalans and Epirotes cannot be used together. The Catalan grand company had a collective leadership when employed by the Romanian Franks, so a Catalan general figure should be considered a furiously debating committee, rather than the great man and 19 bodyguards and aides! Its standard is the banner of Aragon. Sicilian Germans can fight in wedge.
