With his father and uncle now dead, the rule of Saxony and the protection of all Lutheran lands has fallen to John Frederick. He is the leading force behind the formation of the Lutheran league and the defense of the Reformation. He begins the game as a starting Commander in the territory of Saxony. He went to great lengths to help spread the Gospel and was repeatedly threatened with death if he would not recant his Lutheran confession. Time and time again, he courageously refused to recant with calm and joyful defiance. He believed that if he would deny the clear teaching of God’s Holy Word, he would be committing a sin against the Holy Ghost. John Frederick is willing to back up his confession of this faith at all costs. He even Has the scar to prove it.
