c. 2000 BCE-1000 BCE - existence of a civilization on Antharian ground, which was reconstructed between 1850 and [Great War] to what is now the Mardoumakh language and culture, from inscriptions found and various South Slevic toponyms in the area, which the hypothetical Mardoumakh language is a substrate of.

800 BCE - earliest findings of Moorsh (ancestor of Iviran culture, probably having migrated there?) presence in the Borrogan plain (today in Antharia).

c. 500 BCE - first confirmed Hellanesian presence in the region (around what is now Nikopal, Antharia). Hellanesians were nomadic people, their presence having been confirmed in various places throughout southern Uletha. Unclear how they crossed the Mediterranean Sea (legendary ancient bridge?).

200 BCE - first confirmed contact between Hellanesians in the Iviran region and mainland Hellanesia via maritime route.

150 BCE - Hellanesia colonizes Iviran coast, under the name Antharia (origin of the name unclear, theories during the Romanish Renaissance mentioned an Antharious to have lead Hellanesian nomads to what is now Antharia, but theory can't be confirmed)

182 CE - Antharia gains political independence from mainland Hellanesia, becoming one of the first kingdoms in Uletha. Kingdom stretches along the Iviran coast, as well as the coast south of the Kiran river. Capital in Shistri (now Histria). The kingdom was subdivided into 16 "dominions", centered around the 16 metropalin Shistri (Histria, Antharia), Peia (Montemassena, Montemassena), Basilopal (Victoria, Demirhan Empire), Alexandraia (Iskenderya, Demirhan Empire), Bubliane (Bubliannay, Antharia), Argitte (Ardeshehir, Demirhan Empire), Plaka (location unknown, Antharia/Niscavo), Tiras (Chyr, Chara Republic), Skain (Ascay, Antharia), Nesklavo (Niskavo, Niscavo), Erolgi (Porterez, Qennes), Shaltai (Zarechye, Chara Republic), Lazarem (Lazurnyi, Chara Republic), Asperis (Aperis, Demirhan Empire), Terian (Troyan, Chara Republic), Krunas (Dovganiouq, Antharia)

600 CE - first mention of a Slevic-inhabited settlement on the Iviran coast (Chimishliya, Chara republic)

650 CE - establishment of the Osnianit Sur Dukash principality with capital in Dukash (nowadays Archis, Iviron). Principality stretching from what is now Chimishliya, Chara, to central Antharia.

699 CE - first mention of the Osnianit Sur Toridava principality with capital in Toridava (nowadays Sens, Antharia). Principality stretching from what is now Central Antharia to the Lake of Sens.

712 CE - formation of the Osnianit Sur principality of Ivirya, established through union of the Toridava and Dukash principalities, initially with capital in Dukash.

845 CE - Osnianit Sur foundation of the principal fortification of Vorodino (nowadays Bărrădin, Antharia) as new capital of the Ivirya Principality, situated in its center, in the Borrogan plain, formally only inhabited by Moorsh.

930 CE - port of Yaffa (now Yapha, Iviron) is founded between the Antharian palin Peia and Tyras by Garlian merchants seeking to establish own trading hubs near Hellanesian trade routes. The port is situated on a small strip of coast, initially rented from Hellanesians in exchange for a third of incoming and outgoing goods from the territory. Clashes with Osnianit Sur due to proximity to the Sur city of Dukash. First presence of Christicism in the Iviran coast region.

947 CE - Garlian port of Yaffa received the official status of Garlian protectorate, under the name Romania or Romenia (in Ingerish Romany, named after its first Garlian governor Semprontius Romane.

1000 - first Garlian/Romanish attempts to expand northwards, into Osnianit Sur Ivirya, after multiple Sur raids in Yaffa region and Antharian territories.

1027 - first Gaermanic wave of settlers to Romany, stemming from what is now Franquia (settlers named Francs/Franken, to this day)

1050 - first cooperation between Romanish (under Moromet) and Turquan tribe of Varvars, which searched to expand into the areas north of the Iviran mountain range. Gradual occupation of the Osnianit Sur Ivirya principality, over the course of the following 100 years.

1089 - Establishment of the Romanish Budžac province, derived from the Varvar term of Bucak, meaning "borderland". The name is still used today, for the Antharian province of Budshaq. Foundation of Bradžar (today Brudzar, Antharia)

c. 1100 - second big wave of Gaermanic settlers to Romany, probably from the Prettania-Lechia region, self-identifying to this day as Pollonns/Pollonnen

1200 - [Antharian kingdom] Valesi (nowadays Vlăssia/Valessa, from "valasi" = demonym for Garlians/Romanish in Antharian/Hellanesian) was first mentioned in Antharian chronicles, as a trading hub of the Garlian community living in the Antharian kingdom

1212 - Romanish conquest of Vorodino, principal court of Ivirya moves to Toridava. Sur Kremlin of Vorodino mostly destroyed, Christic Garlian monastery "Angelli Sanctice" founded alongside it.

1234 - Romanish conquest of Toridava (nowadays Sens, Antharia), complete dissolution of Sur Ivirya.

c. 1300 - third big wave of Gaermanic settlers to Romany, stemming mostly from Franquia (named Seguins/Siggen)

(c.1400 - Egani tries to re-establish relations with the Antharian kingdom? Niscavo-centered Eganian colony? Introduction of Ekelanism? split of Antharian lands? Old school Antharian kingdom with less ties to Egani east of Niscavo, to be easily occupied by the Romanish later?)

1616 - siege and fall of Valessa under the Romanish (fall of first big Antharian city)

1666 - Conquest of the Antharian city of Peia through the army of the Massena family, is renamed to Monte Massena

1789 - Fall of Dyrstora, the last Antharian-kingdom-ruled city, to the Romanish kingdom, after an almost 1-year siege of the city.

1848 - Foundation of the Antharian oversea territory of Koutsoflakhia, for speakers of Romanish languages in Southwest Uletha and North Tarephia (Abrenic), in particular in Egani ("koutso" from tr. "küçük" = small and eg./an. "valas/valak" = Central Ulethan Romantian language speaker; "Small Valakhs" usually refers to Romanish language speakers outside of the Iviran States, in particular those who have migrated to Egani/Hellanesia).

1864 - Standardization of Abrenic Romanish languages to the Madinyan Standard or Romanish, also known as Armashlian (Rrmãshlij). Becomes official language of the oversea territory Koutsoflakhia.

End of Great War - Bombing raids in Borrodin, Valessa, Quiatoura and Sens, looses regional dependent and oversea territories/ colonies, as well as eastern part of Antharia proper to the Surian confederation. Koutsoflakhia independent Armashlian nation.

1999 - Independence of the Surian Ivira Republic from the Surian confederation under the name Ivira (now Iviron), without parts of the Myldava rayon (which was added to Chara republic)

2002 - Transmarmatian war begins: Surian invasion of Ivira

2004 - Transmarmatian war ends: Surian-backed "Iviran Republic of Marmatia" (Transmarmatia) with capital in Archis (ro. Doucash), Ivira changes name to Iviron (Elvira in Surian) because of name dispute with Antharia and other Iviran coast states, to differenciate from the historical region Ivira. Standardization of the Romanish language on the Iviran ground (Yapha standard), while Transmarmatia keeps the old Surian-imposed "Iviran language" (written in the Romanish Syrillangan alphabet, abolished in Antharia in 1864)

2011 - Historical referendum of union between Antharia and Iviron successful, with a 52% agreement from the Antharian population and a 84% agreement from the Iviran population (Transmarmatia to gain full independence). Initial date planned for 2016.

2015 - Union plan between Antharia and Iviron postponed to 2021, due to political instability around Transmarmatia.

2016 - Union plans between Antharia and Iviron put on hold due to Transmarmatia conflict.


Decided to publish the draft from my notes with the more elaborated history around the territories I own, after I noticed somebody changed names of towns in the border region of Chara republic to Iviron - can these name changed be discussed first? I mentioned before that this area is of historical relevance to Antharia and Iviron.

Anybody feel free to contest any of the bullet points i mentioned here, I'd be happy to see people also adding historical events regarding Iviran Coast territories they work/ collaborate on.

Note: I left out any mention of Kartledgians, as I intend to remove elements of Georgian from Antharia --Stjur (talk) 10:09, 11 December 2023 (UTC)
