Military strengthEdit

The House of Kohleschmied controlled Zurich, the second most populated Kanton of Switzerland. With nearly 1.4 million citizens, the House is able to raise 39,000 infantry, 5,000 cavalry, and 900 artillery, roughly half of the House of Kroshbon's military strength. However, the feared Alpen Guard, a 1,000 member regiment of the most elite Swiss troops, are also garrissoned in Zurich, bolstering the House's military strength.
