Reasonable defense/sacrifice

 

The sovereign and its siege makes Patrician IV sometimes difficult.

A siege is enormously useful to improve the sovereigns mood very fast, much faster than fulfilling its missions/demands.

 

As long as you do not own 100% of the sovereigns participations, you should offer him an easy victim.

 

All towns in a region should be fortified as good as possible exept of one. During a siege the sovereign might attack all of the towns in the region. He will not be able to conquer the fortified towns but he will overrun the other town.

 

Result: The siege will be over very fast and its mood restored on a high level.
