If the French Revolution *there* unfolded with the same particulars as
*here* and with the same ideologies, etc.; then this scenario seems
possible. I put forward the possibility of a union between Britany and
Kemr -- the one _is_ a colony after all! -- which would dampen things a
bit for the French. [If this becomes official!] In any event, the
Brzhona should have moved off to the Low Countries long before the French
could grasp them with their greedy little claws. This would leave them at
the mercy of the nascent Dutch; leaving those that remain in Britany to
contend with the French, whichever way they may be oriented with respect
to the Motherland.
