Timeline of Ingerish colonial history

This page is a timeline for the colonial history of Ingerland, helping historians to understand the spread of Ingerish language and culture throughout the world.




  • 1203: Ingerish boats sailing across the straight of Abren settled en southern Egani, but a few weeks later the Eganian inhabitants of the surrounding villages expelled them.

*1204: The Ingerish-led Knight Venturers arrive in Devnun, Ionadàlba and Tircambry to assist in the Caeltig struggle against Norðmanni raiders. They succeeded in ousting the Norðmanni from Devnun and Tircambry, but remained and conquer Devnun over the next century, renaming it Wesmandy.



  • 1410: Pretany was a prime target for Ingerland due to the massive walls already in place. To avoid a war and full out invasion from Ingerland's massive miliarty, the newly crowned King Beglidere, shortly after his own invasion and conquering of Pretany, signed the Decleration of Ingerish Penal Ownership. The decleration allowed Inglerland to build a series of prison forts throughout the country. Once nearly 400,000 prisoners were transported, Ingerland's military retreated, leaving the prisoners in pretanic control, and a period of Isolationism increased as surrounding countries started to place pressure on Pretany to allow trading rights to resources in the land rich nation.

Was this old timeline created sometime before the inception of the FSA? I believe that Ingerland originally colonised what is now the Federal States, so that'll need to be pencilled in. But I don't think there's been any solid date for when things started there. Are we to presume independence occurred sometime shortly prior to 1759, which was the decided election of the first President, Louis Huntington? --Aces California (talk) 20:30, 21 November 2023 (UTC)
