I'm currently playing as france and i have the italian states backed into a corner. However, Id like to make a peace treaty or have them become a protectorate so they dont get wiped off from the game. I have two full stacks besieging rome and turn after turn they deny my requests, even when i offer them rediculous sums of money in return. is there something i can do to make them become peaceful again, so they arent wiped from the game?
or if i take rome and let them rebel, will they come back?
