I guess the thrill is just to get your empire as big as possible, to see how far you can reach before 1543AD.

I didn't get you about retinues.
Retinues are handy for quick conquest, because you can position them before you declare war. But no matter how big your income is, they suck up *huge* amounts of money to restrengthen! I played as Suomi/Finland/Scandinavia and changed from tribalism to merchant republic after reforming suomenusko, but still with an empire 1/3 the size as this one, I couldn't restrengthen my retinue at full speed after I used it, or I'd run into a deficit.
