The name Bloregia is probably rooted in the ancient words Blöd regio, "soft region", referring to the vast marshlands of the country. Later, the name has been mixed up with the word blörr, "blood", thus giving origin to the contemporary Bloregian name Blorrg, which is usually considered to reflect the ethnic unity of the Bloregians.

Bloregia is considered founded in early medieval era by Bloreg the Great (Bloreg Surr). According to the legend, he arrived in Panurest Hills west of present-day Blöndel and heard the voice of a virgin girl called Banwa who was captured in the underworld. He fell in love with the girl and fought his way into the abyss to rescue her. They married and settled down in the Kvomesul Valley, thus founding the city of Blöndel. Blöndel became a large and wealthy medieval city with vivid connecions to the coastal city of Kvome, which was a separately governed city state at the time.
Isturogi invasion of Blöndel
Initially Blöndel was pourly fortified, so it was ultimately attacked and destroyed by the Isturogis ("men of the east"). A remnant of Blöndel inhabitants flew to the countryside and to the nearby caves. Little by little, they dug a vast network of tunnels to reconquer the city from downunder. The plot succeeded and the Isturogis were taken completely by surprise and all killed or driven away. The city was then heavily fortified and remains Bloregian capital till today. a
It remains unclear why the Isturogis didn't invade Kvome. The river connections from Blöndel to the coast were almost nonexistent during the invasion. The maintream theory is that the Isturogis feared the sea - because of religious or practical reasons, or both.
Arrival and effect of Christicism
Bloregia practiced an animistic folk religion until Puritist Tircambrian missionaries brought Christic influences the country in the 17th century. Bloregia adopted the new religion peacefully, as the missionaries were not conquerors but refugees escaping patriarchal oppression and control in Tircambry. In 1633 an independent Bloregian puritist church was founded. Connections to Tircambry and other Christic conutries like Pretany became vivid, which made the country prosper economically. The church of Bloregia was more open-minded to Ortholic influences than its Tircamrian sister church, which led to a religious break-up between the two in the 19th century. The secular connections between the countries remained fruitful.
In early 20th century, as the church had become strongly secularized, a grass-root revival evolved independent of church authorities, which led to the formation of a second, non-governmental church called The Peace Church (Paxkirgu). The Peace Church later bonded with Metholic Churches of Tircambry and other countries. Today, a third of Bloregians are members of each of the two churches, the last third being mostly non-religious.
Deconstruction of Blöndel walls
The Blöndel city walls were torn down in the 19th century to get rocks for further expansion of Blöndel. Small fragments of the wall are still visible in the city. A medieval castle with surrounding houses is preserved and protected as a heritage site.
Anders Lang becomes part of Bloregia
The south-western county of Bloregia, Anders Lang, was originally a part of Altavia, and many in the area still speak Altavian. After the complex wars in the area in early/mid 20th century, Anders Lang was annexed to Bloregia as stated in a multinational peace treaty. The area remains autonomous, demilitarized and bilingual.
Development of other urban areas
The southermost city Riffezaad was originally part of Altavia and later Eäßnordælånd, until the early 20th century peace treaty when the Bloregian territory was extended to the river fork (thereor the name Riffezaad, "Fork City"). The triple city has since grown a lot and become a symbol of the cooperation between the neighbouring countries.
In the north, Habrest is a border city with a complex international history and challenging geopolitical position, but it has developed into an international cultural and touristic city during the last 70 years. Today, Habrest is perhaps best known for its alpine skiing facilities.
With the exeption of a Blöndel and Kvome, other areas of Bloregia remainded parsely populated until early 20th century, when several major towns/cities were rapidly erected. The former southern border fortification Chimmundi began to expand on the south bank of the river. Its main church was given cathedral status and a university was founded in the city.
Nature and geography
Bloregia has large forests and swamps and some mountain areas in south and north. Agriculture and urban areas concentrate in the river valleys of Central Bloregia.
