The Duchy of Clove-Hamhock

The Duchy of Clove-Hamhock is located in central Germany. It has had a long if checkered history going back to the Thirty Years War. The duchy survived this period by supporting the side currently in power or with the largest army nearby. It was even known to have been on both sides in the same day as different opposing armies marched through the duchy. The current ruler of the duchy is Herzog Wilhelm Fredrik von Servens II a direct descendant of the original ruler of the duchy Wilhelm Fredrik von Servens I.   During the 30 Years War the Duchy survived by supporting the side whose army was closest to the duchy.  Even switching sides during the same day when opposing armies passed near the duchy.
