    A building in Ligota

    Ligota (wls. Ellgoth) is the capital and largest city of Shilesia. It's located in northern part of the country, about 12 kilometers south from the Drehen river, on shore of the Firth of Hetzer. Together with the capital of Welstand-Westrijk, Kirchenburg it forms an international aglomeration.

    History

    Foundation of the city

    Shilesia was founded as an aftermatch of the XIX century war between Welstand-Westrijk and Vinnmark. Galician military (allied with Welstand-Westrijk) had an internal coup and settled on conquered land south of the river Drehen and the Nordlunsk canton of Welstand. The new country needed a capital city. There were already Vinnish settlements in the area but as a result of voting Shilesians have chosen building a new capital in place of several different villages in the north of country. [tbc...]
