League of Confessors.Paul III.png

If Charles V is the most powerful man on the planet, Paul III has the most influence.  As the pope, his domain stretches way beyond the confines of the Holy Roman Empire, although the Hapsburg boys are supposed to be his favorite sons.  With as much power as they have, even Charles and Ferdinand need to make sure they stay on his good side.  Far less inept than his predecessors, Paul III is ready to tackle this reformation problem.  He has the temporal and spiritual leverage to make people dance to his tune.
