===Early History===
+
Until 500 BC, the Vallaquian plain was populated by the indigenous [[Moorsh]], ancestors of the [[Iviran]] culture. Other parts of today’s Antharia were mostly inhabited by early southern [[Slevic]] tribes.
Until 500 BC, south and east of today's Antharia was populated mostly by early southern [[Slevic]] tribes.

 +
===Hellanesian Immigration and Antharian Kingdom===
 +
[[File:Ivira 200 AD.jpg|thumb|left|[[Iviran Coast]] in 200 AD]]
 +
The name "Antharia" dates already from 500 BC, when it defined a region settled by multiple [[Egani|Hellanesian]] migrant flows between 500 BC and 500 AD, situated in the [[Kiran]] estuary region and rapidly spreading along both the northern and the southern coast of today’s [[Gulf of Antharia]]. Among the first significant Antharian settlements were ''Alexandraia'' ([[Iskenderya|Iscandaria]]), ''Basilopal'' ([[Viktorya|Victoria]]) and ''Peia'' ([[Montemassena]]).
 +
 
 +
In the In the early 4th century, Antharia gained independence from Hellanesia and became an independent hub of the Hellanesian trading network on the southern [[Uletha]]n coast. The first capital of the Antharian Kingdom was ''Хistri'' (pronounced ‘’shistri’’, now [[Istria]]).
 +
 
 +
The Antharian Kingdom was mostly populated by Hellanesians, but also by [[Romano-Slevics]], [[Moorsh]] and [[Turquese]]. The Hellanesian walled cities (metropals) were only inhabited by Hellanesians until the late 3rd century AD, after which the Moorsh were permitted to populate them too. Romano-Slevics and Turquese people had in the ancient Antharian hierarchy the lowest estate, being not able to enter the metropalin until the late 16th century. Thus they built their own walled cities like [[Balcik]], [[Nejbar]], Hurezi ([[Hörezöy]]) and [[Bandabulya]].
  
====Antharian Kingdom====
+
The ancient Antharian culture is specifically known for the ‘’Temples of Knowledge’’ (gnostheionin, laugian) which used to dominate the Antharian metropalin being situated either on a hill (akropal) or on an artificial hill (ziggurat) in the center of the walled city, always having a view on the open sea. The temples comprised and developed each a map of the known world, as well as various other scientific discoveries, collected and kept in cyclopedic manner. A room in the temple was consecrated to the ‘’Demiurge God’’, which was only accessible to the Grand Master Cartographer. The rest of the temple was also hidden from the general public, only cartographers, alchemists, as well as the heads of state and army were able to enter it on special occasions.
The name "Antharia" dates already from 500 BC, when it defined a region settled by multiple [[Egani|Hellanesian]] migrants flows between 500 BC and 500 AD, situated in today's [[Cadrilather Province|southern Antharia]], [[Niscavo]] and southern [[Suria]].  
 
  
In the In the early 4th century, Antharia became an independent kingdom and a hub of the Hellanesian trading network on the southern [[Uletha]]n coast, with the capital city in ''Хistri'' (later ''Histri'', ''Hístrè'', ''Хи́стрїѧ'' and ''Histriia'', today [[Istria]]). At that time, the [[Antharian Kingdom]] was half populated by Hellanesians and half by [[Romano-Slevic languages|Romano-Slevics]]. Especially rich Hellanesian merchants used to enslave the Romano-Slevic population, thus for example an Antharian law from 452 AD prohibited any "free Slevics" from the walled Antharian metropoles. Over the centuries, Hellanesian and Slevic, as well as [[Romanish]] and [[Franquese]] influences merged to the [[Antharian language]]. Some remains dating from this period are found in the [[Sea of Antharia]], a former natural depression, flooded during a strong and devastating earthquake in the early 9th century. ''Fôkániî'' (in other sources known as ''Fôrkánê'' or simply ''Fôrkán''), one of the biggest Antharian cities at that time, has also been flooded. There have not been found any remains of the city yet, but historical texts place it underwater, near the island of [[Adakalè]].
+
Over the centuries, the Hellanesian language in Antharia developed under [[Garlian]], [[Castellanese]], [[Surian]], [[Moorsh]] and [[Turquese]] influences to what is today known as [[Antharian|Antharian Eganian]], an [[Eganian]] dialect that has been the official state language of the Antharian Kingdom until its complete suppression in 1797.
  
====Romanish Kingdom====
+
===Iviran Principality of the Slavan Sur’===
The [[Romanish Kingdom]] was an independent southern Slevic principality until the 8th century. In the 9th century, this region was turned into a [[Garlis|Garlian]] protectorate. The [[Kingdom of Romany]] was founded in the 11th century. The capital city of Romany was Нъдрѫчи́нꙋ (today ''[[Nădrăcin]]''). In the two centuries of Garlian protection, Romany adopted the [[Garlian language]], which became in the following centuries, under influences of [[Romano-Slevic languages]], [[Eganian]] and [[Turquese]], the [[Romanish language]]. Romany was also the place where the first official Syrillangan alphabet was created in the 10th century by the Garlian theologian ''Syrillus''. The [[List of alphabets#Old Romanish Alphabet|Old Romanish alphabet]], a mixture between the few earlier scripts used in this region, the Hellanesian and the Garlian Alphabets, was the official script of Romany until 1864.
+
The north of today’s Antharia was inhabited prior to the 7th century AD by South Slevic tribes, [[Moorsh]] and [[Kartlegian]]s. In the 4th century, [[Silot]] became the hub of the Kartlegian culture. First permanent Moorsh settlements appeared already in the 3nd century, including Yabboq ([[Tighina]]), Shderot and Moab ([[Moabit]]).
[[File:Lanada 1500 reconstituire.PNG|thumb|left|''Lânádê'' around 1500 (reconstruction)]]
 
  
===Middle Ages===
+
In the late 7th century, the region of today’s northern Antharia and Iviron became a principality of the Slavan Sur, known by the names ‘’Ivira’’ or ‘’Dukas-Toridava’’, unifying the two former principalities around the Sur’ settlements Toridava ([[Sens]]) and Dukas ([[Dúkaș]]). The knyazes (rulers) of Ivira changed residences quite often between these two cities before settling in Vorodino ([[Bărădin]]) in the early 10th century.
  
Until the 13th century, when ''Lânádê'' became the capital of the kingdom, Antharia didn't have a stable royal residence. In 1372, the ''Quartian Empire'' has conquered a large part of Antharia, which is similar to today's Antharian [[Quartia Province]]. Consequently, Antharia has embattled the borders to Quartia with fortifications.
+
===Garlian Romany===
 +
[[File:Ivira 1000.jpg|thumb|left|Iviran Coast around 1000 AD]]
 +
In 930 AD, Ivira was occupied by Garlians seeking to establish own trading hubs near Hellanesian trade routes. Due to Antharia occupying most of the coast in the area already, Garlians were only able to gain control over a small strip of coast, where they found today’s capital of [[Iviron]], [[Yaffa]].
  
In the 15th century, first oversea attacks took place on the southern coast of the Antharian Kingdom, therefore 47 coastal fortifications were built in the following century, of which 12 still exist today. The biggest Antharian military base, the ''Mahena Fortress'' was built in 1583 at the strait between Gulf of Barodyn and sea.
+
===Romanish Kingdom===
  
As ''Lânádê'' burned down in the late 16th century in a big fire allegedly started by Quartian spies, ''Válesiî'' ([[Vâlcești]]), a big fortress built in 1523, was appointed in 1612 as new capital of the Antharian Kingdom.

===First Antharian War===
+
===[[Greater Antharia]]===
In 1639, the Quartian army unexpectedly performed an assault, which Antharia wasn't able to defend. The Quartian Empire worked its way forward unto the capital ''Válesiî'', which they took over in less than a week time. The Antharian army had to retreat. A provisional capital was installed at the far East end of the country, at ''Vrádêna'' (in today's [[Aurenia]]). From there, Antharia started to look for wartime allies and managed to create an alliance with the [[Romanish Kingdom]] and the [[Chara|Principality of Chara]]. After several unsuccessful attempts, the united armies took back ''Válesiî'' in 1658 and almost the entire rest of the country until 1662. As reward for their help, Chara and Romany claimed Antharian territories. Thus Antharia gave up lands in its east to Chara and a smaller territories in its north to the Romanish Kingdom.

===Modern Period===
+
===Formation of the modern Antharian state===
In 1723, a big earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter scale destroyed many parts of southern Antharia, including the fortresses [[Adakalè|Álbâ Carôlínê]], Nêgéniî and [[Sf. Vineri|Mâhénê]]. The capital city [[Vâlcești|Válesiî]] was highly damaged too.
 
  
In 1754, the Romanish Prince Ѳє́ѡдѡр III (''Theodor III'') became Antharian king, as the ''Dynasty of Darovingians'' disappeared with the assassination of King ''Leînád I'' in 1752. Theodor III followed the plan of [[Romanish|romanizing]] the Antharian nation and replacing the [[Antharian language]] with the [[Romanish language]]. The first step followed in 1755, when all public institutions in Antharia were forced to adopt the Romanish language. Despite several revolts, the plan worked and the Antharian language started to be superseded by Romanish. Until 1800, Romanish achieved being the main language of the higher social classes.
+
==Geography==
  
===Second Antharian War===
+
===Islands===
In 1794, plans of Quartia attacking Antharia and Romany were detected and the governments of both countries decided to unify themselves to build up a stronger resistance against Quartia. On July 2nd, 1797, the Romanish and the Antharian Kingdoms merged into ''Antharia''. Capital city of Antharia became the small town ''Barôdéniî'', which was widely extended and modernized and achieved the Romanish name [[Bărădin]].
 
  
In 1801, Quartia attacked for the first time, not from the northeast, as expected, but from the southern coast. The Quartian army conquered the south of the Cadrilather Peninsula, but wasn't able to move any further towards the capital, as this region had a well-marked defending system. In 1803, the Quartian army had to retract.
+
===Mountains and rivers===
  
The second attack took place at the northwest border, in 1810. This failed very fast, as the Antharian army had imported new modern weapons from [[Pretany]] and [[Gobrassanya]].
+
===Climate===
  
At the [[Gobras Conference]] in 1813, the nations Antharia, [[Gobrassanya]] and [[Pretany]] decided to disperse the Quartian Empire as it began to behave too provocative. In 1816, [[Gobrassanya]]n, [[Pretany|Pretanian]] and [[Antharia]]n troops attacked the Quartian Empire and took it over until 1817. More then half of the Quartian population was expelled and had to flee to [[Euresia]]. <<<Quartia was divided into 4 occupation zones: ''Southeast'', which was attached to [[Cimenoire]] and received the name [[Nord et Les Frontières|Les Frontières]]; ''Central-East'', (consisting by the former Antharian territory [[Quartia Province|Corția]] and by [[Pollonia Province|Pollonia]], a former independent kingdom, taken over by Quartia in 1642), which was added to Antharia; ''Northeast'' and ''Northwest'', which were occupied by Pretanian and Gobrassanyan troops and served as independent colonies.>>>

==Politics==
[[File:Carol I King of Antharia.jpg|thumb|right|King Кáрѡʌ I of Antharia]]
 
The romanization of the new Antharian territories was not very successful. Even though public institutions were obligated to work in Romanish only, especially big cities as ''Sens'' ([[Terdău]]) and ''Reißburg'' ([[Ribuzău]]) remained preponderantly [[Franquese]] and [[Pollonian]].
 
  
In 1828, King ''Кáрѡʌ I'' (Carol I) became king of Antharia. Under his rule, the country experienced an economic boom. Carol I also managed to give minorities more rights. Antharia became a multicultural state, only the [[Antharian]] culture was neglected. This led starting with 1835 to many local revolts of the Antharian population all over Antharia. Most of these revolts were quelled by the royal guard. As the [[Turquese]] minority, which represented only 1.28% of the population of Antharia, had more rights that the [[Antharian]]-speaking population, which constituted more than 25%, Antharian rebels burned down all mosques in Antharia in the night of January 15th, 1879 (''Night of the Fallen Moon''). The day after, the Antharian population has been outlawed by the king ''Carol II''. As consequence, more than half of the ethnic Antharians fled to neighboring countries and to Gobrassanya. Many others changed their identities. Over 20,000 Antharians were killed in the following two years.
+
===Law and judicial system===
  
===Economic Prosperity and International Relations===
+
===Foreign relations===
  
Despite the Antharian genocide, the international relations of Antharia weren't cancelled, but they grew stronger, especially to [[Pretany]], [[Suria]] and [[Gobrassanya]]. The significant upturn of the Antharian economy started with the introduction of the New Romanish Alphabet in 1862, during the reign of ''Ferdinand I''. The constant economical rise of the country lasted under the rule of ''Carol II'' (1878-1893) and ''Ferdinand II'' (1893-1921). In 1912, one of the most successful luxury vehicle companies in Uletha, the ''Antharian Automobile Works (AAW)'', was founded in [[Bărădin]].
+
===Military===
  
In 1886, Antharian warships were send by ''Carol II'' to different parts of the world to conquer territories on which Antharian cities and military bases had to be built. One of the most successful colony was [[Tupom]] in South [[Archanta]].

==Economy==
  
===Revolution of 1921 and Third Antharian War===
+
===Agriculture===
In 1916, the population of Antharia began to revolt against their king ''Ferdinand II'', who upped the taxes to build new, immense royal residences as the one in [[Vâlcești]]. Head of a national movement against King Ferdinand II was the [[Franquese]] general [[Jean Gheorghe-Barraca]] from the [[Quartia Province|Quartian Province]]. Through propaganda in newspapers, which were manipulated by him, he succeeded in alluring the majority of the Antharian population on his side by 1920. In October 1921, King Ferdinand II was assassinated by ''Ion Vâlion'', a Romanish peasant allegedly set by Gheorghe-Barraca to murder the king to distract from his own Franquese background.
 
  
In 1922, ''Jean Gheorghe-Barraca'' became leader of Antharia, which became a fascist dictatorship. To negate the monarchy, he moved the capital back to [[Vâlcești]], the initial capital city of Antharia. He also planned immense systematization projects in the city, of which until 1925 only a few were entirely finished.
+
===Infrastructure===
  
One of his ideas was, that all territories near Antharia on which [[Franquese]], [[Eganian]] and [[Pollonian]] people lived should have been included in Antharia. Therefore he built up a big Antharian army by forcing every male aged between 17-62 and living in Antharia to enter it. In 1923, Antharia took over [[Niscavo]] and eastern parts of [[Cimenoire]]. In 1924, Gheorghe-Barraca started conquering southern parts of [[Euresia]]. At this point, international armies intervened, among others also [[Gobrassanya]]n  and [[Pretany|Pretanian]] troops. In 1925, Antharia surrendered and ''Jean Gheorghe-Barraca'' was shot in [[Bărădin]].

After 1925, the country was divided into four occupation zones: ''Central-Northwest'', occupied by [[Euresia]], ''Southwest'', occupied by [[Cimenoire]] and [[Egani]] and ''East'', occupied by [[Carpathia]]. While the western zones were assigned to democratic governments controlled by the occupying forces and eventually united themselves in 1943 to the new state of Antharia, the eastern occupation zone became in 1929 a independent socialist republic under the name of [[Aurenia]].
 
  
The biggest Antharian cities were strongly damaged during the bombardments in 1925. Especially the former capital city of Antharia, [[Bărădin]], was destroyed at more than 75%. [[Vâlcești]] lost around 25% of its buildings. Ancient fortifications like [[Adakalè]] were often used as prisons and torture camps, especially under Cimenoirean occupation.
+
===Tourism===
  
Until 1943, all Antharian regions were in a deplorable state. The higher class of Antharia managed to flee to [[Gobrassanya]] or [[Pretany]], other flows of refugees emigrated to neighboring countries. The total Antharian population added up to around 10 million people in 1925, was left to only 6.1 million inhabitants in 1940.

[[File:Zïar de Antharïa (Antharian Union 1943).jpg|thumb|right|Newspaper article on the Antharian Union (Zïar de Antharïa, 1943)]]
 
At the [[Niscavo Conference]] in 1937, [[Egani]], [[Pretany]], [[Gobrassanya]] and [[Suria]] discussed about the future of Antharia. The points of view were very diverse. Egani appreciated the idea of a reunited Antharia, but asked for [[Romanish Niscavo|northern Niscavo]] in exchange. Pretany was also in favor of a united but a supervised Antharian state - neighboring countries should have been able to intervene and taken over the government in case of civil wars or revolts. Gobrassanya pledged for a free united Antharia with a highly developed foreign policy and strong diplomatic relations.
 
  
Suria did not accept the idea of a reconstitution of Antharia, the country could have become a threat for the neighboring states again. Suria wanted to keep the occupation zones and demilitarize them, turning them to agrarian colonies. The Surian point of view delayed the reunion. Only in 1942, the western occupation states decided to give up the Surian occupation zone in favor of a smaller, independent Antharian state.
+
===Immigration===
  
In 1943, the Eganian, Pretanian and Gobrassian zones united to the state of Antharia. The only condition stipulated by these states was to keep the democracy, else they were able to disperse Antharia again. Egani, as requested, received northern Niscavo.
+
===Languages===
  
One year later, in 1944, Suria founded the state of [[*]], which at the beginning was de iure a Surian "colony". In 1947, big Antharian liberal movements freed * from Surian occupation.

As [[Egani]] took over a territory which was over seven times bigger than the former colonized city state [[Niscavo]] itself, territories which indeed originally were part of Niscavo but on which, in 18th and 19th century, a high amount of Romanish people settled, representing around 40% of the territory's population, they revolted starting with 1945 against their new regime and asked to be reintegrated in Antharia. Egani didn't take action until 1948, when the count of Romanish and Eganian population in each town was published. Later this year, the census came out to be rigged, as the actual number of Romanish population was much bigger. In 1950, an accurate census was published, which made clear, that in northern parts of Niscavo, the amount of Romanish population surpassed the Eganian population, in some cases even with 30%.
 
  
Only in 1977, the northern part of Niscavo asked for independence and was reintegrated in 1979 in the [[Antharia]]n [[Cadrilather Province]].

In 2004, the Niscavan minority in the so-called [[Romanish Niscavo]] requested autonomy from Antharia again. Since 2007, this region is an autonomous Antharian province.

Antharia is a secular state with no state religion. However, Antharia is one of the most religious countries in [[Uletha]] and an overwhelming majority of the country's citizens are Christian. 52.8% of the country's stable population identified as [[Ekelan Church|Ekelan]] in the 2011 census. Other denominations include [[Ortholic Church|Ortholicism]] (35.4%), [[Reformatic Church|Reformatism]] (4.1%) and Islam (2.6%). The 2011 census counts also a number of 14,000 [[Dionism|Dionists]] and 21,000 atheists.

===Literature===
Since 1867 the official Antharian currency has been '''Antharian Leu''' (''Ⱡ''). It is subdivided into 100 Bani (''bn'').
 
  
Since the middle ages, the south of Antharia had as currency the ''Ruble'', which differed between the ''Gold Ruble'' (until 1735) and the ''Silver Ruble'' (1735-1867). In 1836, King Carol I introduced the ''Antharian Leu'' for the first time, an adaption of the Romanish ''Ʌïѡ́ꙋ̆''. Before 1867 the Silver Ruble was valued so highly as to drive the native coins out of circulation. In 1867, ''Ferdinand I'' prohibited the ''Silver Ruble''. Since then, the official Antharian currency is '''Leu'''.

==Administrative Divisions==
+
===Cinema===
Today's Antharia was formed from an earlier collection of several states with different cultures. As it has a federal constitution, the constituent provinces retain a measure of sovereignty. Federalism is one of the entrenched principles of Antharia. According to the Antharian constitution (called ''Constituție'' or ''Lege Fundamentală''), some topics (such as foreign affairs and defense) are the exclusive responsibility of the federation (i.e., the federal level), while others fall under the shared authority of the provinces and the federation (all other areas, including topics such as financial promotion of arts and sciences, but also many forms of education and job training). Although international relations are primarily the responsibility of the federal level, provinces have certain limited powers in this area: in matters that affect them directly, the provinces defend their interests at the federal level through the Federal Council ("Camera Superioară", the upper house of the Antharian Federal Parliament) and in areas where they have legislative authority they have limited powers to conclude international treaties "with the consent of the federal government".
 
  
The creation of the Federal Republic of Antharia in 1943 was through the unification of the western states (which were previously under [[Niscavo|Niscavan]], [[Cimenoire]]an, and [[Euresia]]n administration) created in the aftermath of 3rd Antharian War.

Tourism is a significant contributor to the Antharian economy, generating around 9% of GDP. According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, Antharia was estimated to have the second fastest growing travel and tourism total demand in the world, with an estimated potential growth of 16% per year from 2007 to 2016. The number of tourists has been steadily rising, reaching 9.5 million in the first half of 2014. Tourism in Antharia attracted [[Unified standard dollar|$]]800 million in investments in 2005.
 
  
More than 60% of the foreign visitors in 2007 were from other countries in [[Uletha]]. The popular summer attractions of [[Nisipurile de Aur]] and other sea resorts attracted 4.3 million tourists in 2009. Most popular skiing resorts are in the south, on the [[Munții Vâlceni|Vâlceni Mountains]]. [[List of medieval fortifications in Antharia|Castles and medieval fortifications]] in cities such as [[Vâlcești]], [[Niculești Nord]], and [[Adakalè]] also attract a large number of tourists.

According to the 2011 census, Antharia's population is 21,040,000. Despite the decline of the population in neighboring countries, the Antharian population is growing, mainly due to immigration. In October 2011, the Romanish population made up 88.9% of the population. The largest ethnic minorities are [[Eganian]], 3.5% of the population, [[Franquese]], 2% of the population and [[Pollonian]], 1% of the population. Franqueses constitute a majority in the [[Quartia Province]] and Pollonians live mostly in [[Pollonia Province]].

Etymology

History

Prehistory and pre-Antharian peoples

The human remains found in Peștera Văduvelor ("Cave of Widows") dates from circa 120,000 years ago, being one of the oldest founds of Homo Sapiens in Uletha.

Until 500 BC, the Vallaquian plain was populated by the indigenous Moorsh, ancestors of the Iviran culture. Other parts of today’s Antharia were mostly inhabited by early southern Slevic tribes.

Hellanesian Immigration and Antharian Kingdom

Iviran Coast in 200 AD

The name "Antharia" dates already from 500 BC, when it defined a region settled by multiple Hellanesian migrant flows between 500 BC and 500 AD, situated in the Kiran estuary region and rapidly spreading along both the northern and the southern coast of today’s Gulf of Antharia. Among the first significant Antharian settlements were Alexandraia (Iscandaria), Basilopal (Victoria) and Peia (Montemassena).

In the In the early 4th century, Antharia gained independence from Hellanesia and became an independent hub of the Hellanesian trading network on the southern Ulethan coast. The first capital of the Antharian Kingdom was Хistri (pronounced ‘’shistri’’, now Istria).

The Antharian Kingdom was mostly populated by Hellanesians, but also by Romano-Slevics, Moorsh and Turquese. The Hellanesian walled cities (metropals) were only inhabited by Hellanesians until the late 3rd century AD, after which the Moorsh were permitted to populate them too. Romano-Slevics and Turquese people had in the ancient Antharian hierarchy the lowest estate, being not able to enter the metropalin until the late 16th century. Thus they built their own walled cities like Balcik, Nejbar, Hurezi (Hörezöy) and Bandabulya.

The ancient Antharian culture is specifically known for the ‘’Temples of Knowledge’’ (gnostheionin, laugian) which used to dominate the Antharian metropalin being situated either on a hill (akropal) or on an artificial hill (ziggurat) in the center of the walled city, always having a view on the open sea. The temples comprised and developed each a map of the known world, as well as various other scientific discoveries, collected and kept in cyclopedic manner. A room in the temple was consecrated to the ‘’Demiurge God’’, which was only accessible to the Grand Master Cartographer. The rest of the temple was also hidden from the general public, only cartographers, alchemists, as well as the heads of state and army were able to enter it on special occasions.

Over the centuries, the Hellanesian language in Antharia developed under Garlian, Castellanese, Surian, Moorsh and Turquese influences to what is today known as Antharian Eganian, an Eganian dialect that has been the official state language of the Antharian Kingdom until its complete suppression in 1797.

Iviran Principality of the Slavan Sur’

The north of today’s Antharia was inhabited prior to the 7th century AD by South Slevic tribes, Moorsh and Kartlegians. In the 4th century, Silot became the hub of the Kartlegian culture. First permanent Moorsh settlements appeared already in the 3nd century, including Yabboq (Tighina), Shderot and Moab (Moabit).

In the late 7th century, the region of today’s northern Antharia and Iviron became a principality of the Slavan Sur, known by the names ‘’Ivira’’ or ‘’Dukas-Toridava’’, unifying the two former principalities around the Sur’ settlements Toridava (Sens) and Dukas (Dúkaș). The knyazes (rulers) of Ivira changed residences quite often between these two cities before settling in Vorodino (Bărădin) in the early 10th century.

Garlian Romany

Iviran Coast around 1000 AD

In 930 AD, Ivira was occupied by Garlians seeking to establish own trading hubs near Hellanesian trade routes. Due to Antharia occupying most of the coast in the area already, Garlians were only able to gain control over a small strip of coast, where they found today’s capital of Iviron, Yaffa.
