===Prehistory and pre-Antharian peoples===

The human remains found in ''Peshtera Vădouvelor'' ("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 [[Valakh]] plain was populated by the indigenous [[Moorsh]], ancestors of the [[Iviran]] culture. In old [[Romantian]] texts the region was often referred to as "Terra Mauricia". Other parts of today’s Antharia were mostly inhabited 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 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 [[Histriya]]).
 +
 
 +
The Antharian Kingdom was mostly populated by Hellanesians, but also by [[Romano-Slevics]], [[Moorsh]] and [[Turquese]]. The Hellanesian walled cities (metropalin) were only populated by Hellanesians, until the late 3rd century AD, after which the Moorsh were permitted to inhabit them as well. Romano-Slevics and Turquese people had in the ancient Antharian hierarchy the lowest rank, being not able to enter the metropalin until the late 16th century. Thus they built their own walled cities "kulanin", including [[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.
 +
 
 +
While in most gnostheionin, Grand Master Cartographers kept maps of the real, known world, the [[White Temple of Peia]] (nowadays [[Montemassena]]) is famous for having contained a map of a fictional world. The so-called [[World Map of Modest]] would go on to have a key role in the history of the Antharian State, in the Réatyrnarya movement, being also depicted in the current [[Antharian heraldry|coat of arms of Antharia]].
 +
 
 +
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 which has been the official 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 [[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]]).
 +
 
 +
In the late 7th century, the region of today’s northern Antharia and Iviron has been invaded by the Osnianit Sur’, becoming a principality of the state of [[Slavan Sur]], known under the names ‘’Ivira’’ or ‘’Dukas-Toridava’’, unifying the two principalities around the Sur’ colonies Toridava ([[Sens]]) and Dukas ([[Archis]], [[Glagol]]). The knyazes (rulers) of Ivira changed residences multiple times between these two cities before settling halfway, in the Sur’ fortification of Vorodino (today [[Bărrădin]]) in the early 10th century. Many more Sur’ colonies from the time period have become the foundation of significant Antharian cities of today, such as [[Lipsca Ivireană]] - ''Lipsk'', [[Bourcus]] - ''Burcoš'' or [[Maguilla-Loupin]] - ''Magila''.
 +
 
 +
===Garlian Romany===
 +
[[File:Ivira 1000.jpg|thumb|left|Iviran Coast around 1000 AD]]
 +
In 930 AD, Ivira was occupied by [[Garlis|Garlians]] seeking to establish own trading hubs near Hellanesian trade routes. Due to Antharia occupying most of the Iviran Coast, Garlians were only able to gain control over a small strip of coast, initially renting it from Hellanesians in exchange for a third of incoming and outgoing goods from the territory. In 947 AD, the region received the official status of Garlian protectorate, under the name of ''Romania'' or ''Romenia'' (in [[Ingerish]] ''[[Romany]]'', named after its first Garlian governor Semprontius Romane.
 +
 
 +
The first capital of Romany has also been the first Garlian settlement in the area – the port city of ''Ioppe'', nowadays knows as the capital city of Iviron, [[Yaffa]]. It was situated on the coast, in-between the two significant Antharian palin ''Peia'' and ''Tyras'' (nowadays [[Chyr]], in Iviron).
 +
 
 +
Starting 1000 AD, the Garlian protectorate stared a number of attempts to expand northwards, into the Iviran principality of the Slavan Sur. With the help of the Turquan tribe of ''[[Varav|Varvars]]'', which searched to expand into the areas north of the [[Iviran mountains|Iviran mountain range]], the Slavan Sur principality has been gradually occupied by Garlians, over the course of the following 200 years. With most of the Sur population in occupied Iviran cities being dispelled, the lands were inhabited by a rare multi-ethnic population, which included Osnianit Surian, various remaining South Slevic cultures, Moorsh, Kartlegian, as well as minorities of Eganians and Turquan cultures ([[Turquese]], [[Varvar]], [[Mardoumakh]]). The area was named ''Budžac'', derived from the Varvar term of ''Bucak'', meaning „borderland”. The name is still used today, for the Antharian province of [[Budshaq]], which approximately corresponds to the initial area with the same name.
 +
 
 +
In 1027, the new occupied territories were included in the [[Romantian Gaermanic Ostsiedlung]] (eastward settlement) movement, which consisted in the relocation of Gaermanic peoples from the  [[Romantia|Romantian subcontinent]], specifically what is nowadays [[Garlis]], [[Franquia]] and [[Pretany]] to lands in Central and East Uletha. Gaermanic peoples who were used to colonize inland Romany stemmed mostly from todays central Franquia (known as ''Franken/Francs'' or ''Siggen/Seguins''), as well as, later, from the northern Pretanic kingdoms (known as ''Pollonnen/Pollonians'').

====Antharian Kingdom====
+
==Notes==
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 today's [[Cadrilather Province|southern Antharia]], [[Niscavo]] and southern [[Suria]], on the Iviran Coast.
 
  
In the In the early 4th century, Antharia became an independent kingdom for the first time and a hub of the Hellanesian trading network on the southern [[Uletha]]n coast, with the capital city in ''Хistri'' (later ''Histri'', ''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.
+
==References==
  
Over the centuries, the Hellanesian language in Antharia developed under [[Romanish]], [[Castellanese]], [[Surian]] and [[Turquese]] influences to an own dialect, known as [[Antharian|Antharian Eganian]], a language that remained the official state language of the Antharian Kingdom until it united with the [[Romanish Kingdom]] in 1797.
+
==Sources==
  
====Romanish Kingdom====
 
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 the influence of [[Romano-Slevic languages]], [[Eganian]] and [[Turquese]], the [[Romanish language]]. Romany is also the place where the first official Syrillangan alphabet was created in the 10th century by the Garlian theologian ''Syrillus'' and uniformly used in the entire kingdom. 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 and later Antharia until 1864.

Antharia (/aŋ'θæɹi.ə/ an-THA-ree-ə; Romanish: Antharia or Anthariya [an'θari.a]; Eganian: Antariê; Ayvrish: אנתריה; Turquese: Antarya; Surian: Антария), officially Federal Republic of Antharia (Romanish: Républica Fédérală Antharia or Respumplika Omospondistă Anthariya) is a federal semi-presidential republic in central-southern Uletha, on the Iviran Sea. It includes 6 constituent provinces. Antharia covers an area of 59,102.75 square kilometres (22,819.70 sq mi). It is bordered by Niscavo, Qennes to the west, UL118 and the Surian republics West Kartlegia and Chara to the north, as well as Iviron and Montemassena to the east. To the south, the two Antharian enclaves Turtukay and Ramnakon have a physical borders with the Demirhan Empire. The enclave Adakale, situated at the Kiran river, shares a physical border with Malesoria.

Its capital and largest city of Antharia is Bărrădin.

Etymology

The etymology of Antharia is uncertain. Legends mention an Antharious as first ruler of Hellanesians who migrated around 500 BC to the Kiran estuary, however there is no written proof of his existence.

History

Prehistory and pre-Antharian peoples

The human remains found in Peshtera Vădouvelor ("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 Valakh plain was populated by the indigenous Moorsh, ancestors of the Iviran culture. In old Romantian texts the region was often referred to as "Terra Mauricia". 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 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 Histriya).

The Antharian Kingdom was mostly populated by Hellanesians, but also by Romano-Slevics, Moorsh and Turquese. The Hellanesian walled cities (metropalin) were only populated by Hellanesians, until the late 3rd century AD, after which the Moorsh were permitted to inhabit them as well. Romano-Slevics and Turquese people had in the ancient Antharian hierarchy the lowest rank, being not able to enter the metropalin until the late 16th century. Thus they built their own walled cities "kulanin", including 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.

While in most gnostheionin, Grand Master Cartographers kept maps of the real, known world, the White Temple of Peia (nowadays Montemassena) is famous for having contained a map of a fictional world. The so-called World Map of Modest would go on to have a key role in the history of the Antharian State, in the Réatyrnarya movement, being also depicted in the current coat of arms of Antharia.

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 which has been the official 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 has been invaded by the Osnianit Sur’, becoming a principality of the state of Slavan Sur, known under the names ‘’Ivira’’ or ‘’Dukas-Toridava’’, unifying the two principalities around the Sur’ colonies Toridava (Sens) and Dukas (Archis, Glagol). The knyazes (rulers) of Ivira changed residences multiple times between these two cities before settling halfway, in the Sur’ fortification of Vorodino (today Bărrădin) in the early 10th century. Many more Sur’ colonies from the time period have become the foundation of significant Antharian cities of today, such as Lipsca Ivireană - Lipsk, Bourcus - Burcoš or Maguilla-Loupin - Magila.

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 Iviran Coast, Garlians were only able to gain control over a small strip of coast, initially renting it from Hellanesians in exchange for a third of incoming and outgoing goods from the territory. In 947 AD, the region received the official status of Garlian protectorate, under the name of Romania or Romenia (in Ingerish Romany, named after its first Garlian governor Semprontius Romane.

The first capital of Romany has also been the first Garlian settlement in the area – the port city of Ioppe, nowadays knows as the capital city of Iviron, Yaffa. It was situated on the coast, in-between the two significant Antharian palin Peia and Tyras (nowadays Chyr, in Iviron).

Starting 1000 AD, the Garlian protectorate stared a number of attempts to expand northwards, into the Iviran principality of the Slavan Sur. With the help of the Turquan tribe of Varvars, which searched to expand into the areas north of the Iviran mountain range, the Slavan Sur principality has been gradually occupied by Garlians, over the course of the following 200 years. With most of the Sur population in occupied Iviran cities being dispelled, the lands were inhabited by a rare multi-ethnic population, which included Osnianit Surian, various remaining South Slevic cultures, Moorsh, Kartlegian, as well as minorities of Eganians and Turquan cultures (Turquese, Varvar, Mardoumakh). The area was named Budžac, derived from the Varvar term of Bucak, meaning „borderland”. The name is still used today, for the Antharian province of Budshaq, which approximately corresponds to the initial area with the same name.

In 1027, the new occupied territories were included in the Romantian Gaermanic Ostsiedlung (eastward settlement) movement, which consisted in the relocation of Gaermanic peoples from the Romantian subcontinent, specifically what is nowadays Garlis, Franquia and Pretany to lands in Central and East Uletha. Gaermanic peoples who were used to colonize inland Romany stemmed mostly from todays central Franquia (known as Franken/Francs or Siggen/Seguins), as well as, later, from the northern Pretanic kingdoms (known as Pollonnen/Pollonians).
