As far as I remember, the queen/king was not able to buy troops in the original game if you did not pay taxes. At least, she didn't buy so much.
In the game I recently started, the queen bought a lot in the first years.
Can anyone confirm this feature of the original game?
I was able to at least partially confirm this. I held a couple "tea parties" and it wasn't until I sent treasure trains to Europe that the King added to the REF . As soon as I added two treasure trains, the REF increased each time at the end of the turn.
Apparently according to the Col1 Strategy Guide, taxes revenue is used to fund the REF (no mention of treasure trains). See here
