is a minor nation in Empire: Total War. It is a French protectorate. It may join the French if the player captures Iroquois territory, Algonquin territory (owned by the Iroquois Confederacy), and Cherokee territory (owned by the Cherokee Nations). If France is controlled by the A.I, Louisiana automatically becomes French territory within a dozen moves of the beginning of the Grand Campaign.

Should France be destroyed before it annexes Louisiana, Louisiana can remain independent until destroyed by another faction. Like other default protectorates, Louisiana automatically becomes France's protectorate again, should France declare independence.

General InformationEdit

Louisiana is a very weak faction that rarely, if ever, fields a formidable army. As it is usually automatically eliminated by becoming part of France in the early game, it rarely plays a major role in the Grand Campaign. 

Unit RosterEdit

Louisiana's roster is very similar to France's, including TirailleursInfanterie Petit-Vieux, and Infanterie Vieux. However, as these powerful units can either only be trained in France itself or are late-game units, Louisiana very rarely has the opportunity to field them.


The regions they control are:

  • Fort Chartes, Upper Louisiana
  • New Orleans, Lower Louisiana
