    The hard way: to unlock a faction you need to annihilate it in the game.

    Simpler way: go to \Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign, make a copy of the file descr_strat.txt (so you can keep the original). Also right click and remove the tick from Read Only.
    Open it and you will see a list of the playable and unlockable factions.
    Move the factions from unlockable to playable and voila.

    Have a look in the file, there are more interesting things you can modify but be sure you keep the original version!

    Some consider the latter to be cheating ... I don't :)

    If I would know how to create links I could give you some cause the question was asked and answered many times before.

    Instead: play a short or long campaign or follow the hints of frogbeastegg, copied by me:

    "
    xxx needs to be unlocked before you can play as them. To do this you can either complete a campaign (on any difficutly, long or short setting) with one of the five starting factions, or you can edit the preferences file. To do this open your Sega/M2TW folder/data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign, find the file called "descr_strat" and open it with wordpad. Now find the section which says
    Code:
    campaign imperial_campaign
    playable
    england
    france
    hre
    spain
    venice
    end
    unlockable
    sicily
    milan
    scotland
    byzantium
    russia
    moors
    turks
    egypt
    denmark
    portugal
    poland
    hungary
    end
    nonplayable
    papal_states
    aztecs
    mongols
    timurids
    slave
    end
    Change it so it reads

    Code:
    campaign imperial_campaign
    playable
    england
    france
    hre
    spain
    venice
    sicily
    milan
    scotland
    byzantium
    russia
    moors
    turks
    egypt
    denmark
    portugal
    poland
    hungary
    end
    nonplayable
    papal_states
    aztecs
    mongols
    timurids
    slave
    end "

    Winning either the long or short campaign will do it, or you can cheat by editing textfiles (see the stickied faq).
