The Kingdom of Fressland (Fressian: Freszia) is a small kingdom that borders Mahikan, Litvania, Krankeit, Tsvetkovo, and Norkolnia.


The History of Fressland


The history of the Kingdom of Fressland starts in 678 when Yartka L. formed the "Yartkan Kingdom". It only controlled the area around Foravia.

Throughout the next 300 years, Yartka and his heirs expanded the kingdom to control almost all of Frezzland, except the areas of Kythavu, which was controlled by the Kingdom of Kythavu and central Konkordia (at that time called Rathonia), which at the time was under its own rule.


In 994, the Redstonian Revolution occured throughout the Yartkan Kingdom. When the rebels took control of Freezonia, the then capital of the kingdom, the kingdom was split up into many small states: the Foravian Kingdom, the Kingdom of Outer Kythavu, the Free State of Rython, the Free City of Freezonia, the Free State of Redstonia, and the Eastern Kingdom.

And so began the Fresslandic Warring States period.


Throughout the 1000s and 1100s, these states and their neighbors fought many wars, the biggest being the War of Kythavian Reunification, between Kythavu, allied with the Kingdom of Outer Kythavu, against Rython, the Eastern Kingdom, and Foravia, which took place between 1076 and 1102.

In 1145, Rython and Foravia joined with the Kythavian Union, a union between Freezonia and the reunited Kythavu.

In 1485, a major revolt called the Eastern revolt shook the Eastern Kingdom down to the bottom. The revolt was put down in 1487, after which the Kingdom joined the Kythavian Union. The new Union was able to stay at peace with its neighbors and itself for almost 400 years.

In 1882, a pro-monarchy revolt shook the Union to the ground. The monarchists installed Nathaniel Kathan I to the new throne, who moved the capital from the vulnerable city of Freezonia to the newly renamed city of Konkordia.

In 2017, a long-standing agreement between the citizens of the self-proclaimed state of "Norkolnia" and the Kingdom of Fressland was finally signed by both parties, and the northern half of the Far Northern Province was ceded to the Norkolnian State.
