If I win the lottery, I do not sit at home and watch TV, I march to Merica, and ask them to join us in a march on Wessex. We demand Wessex withdraw from Merica, and Northumbria. If they agree, we will accept the return of our lands, if they do not, we will simply take them.
I shall then rule as Jarl of Jorvik, or King of the North, either is fine by me, with Merica acting as a nice buffer between us and anybody in Wessex getting any ideas above their station.
For that my friend you have to win min 100 billion dollars , to become king is not cheap
Still , will join your army for free
