'''The Left Bank''' is a [[decision]] available to {{flag|France}}. It is available if {{flag|Prussia}} exists and owns the to provinces Trier (In Rheinland) and Cologne (In Nordrhein). Prussia owns both provinces in the beginning of the game. Otherwise it requires that France has researched [[Ideological Thought]]. It cannot be taken if Prussia has formed {{flag|North German Federation}} or {{flag|Germany}}, so it must be used early in the game.
It reduces the [[relation]] with all states in {{flag|Germany}} by {{Red|100}}, gives {{Red|4}} [[infamy]] and {{Green|11}} [[prestige]] and gives an acquire state [[casus belli]] to France against {{flag|Prussia}}. The casus belli only lasts for 1 month, so war has to be declared immidiately.
It is part of the chain of decisions surrounding the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhine_crisis Rhine crisis]. It leads to the Prussian decisions [[Die Wacht am Rhein]] and [[Niederwald Denkmal]]. The two decision will remove {{green|7}} [[infamy]] from Germany, but will not affect France directly, so one should not avoid taking the decision in fear of those two decisions.
* In The AI will always take the game files decision, unless [[infamy]] is below 0.5. Taking the decision is called the_rhine_crisis instead of the_left_bank, doesn't mean that France will then naturally always use the [[casus belli]].
