Cygnar, officially the Kingdom of Cygnar is a parliamentary monarchy in western Immoren.

Etymology

The name "Cygnar" originates from the Cygnus standard used by the Kingdom of Caspia during the rule of Benewic Govant. Govant later became Benewic I of the Kingdom of Cygnar in 203 AR. His banner was a golden swan on a blue field, which remains in use as the official flag of Cygnar. 1

History

Ancient Calacia

The first Menite city was established in 6500 BR at Icthier. The legendary Priest-King Cinot founded and ruled the city for four centuries. It remained the center of Menite civilization long after his death. In 5500 BR an expedition departed Icthier under the leadership of the priest Geth to spread the Menite faith in the uncivilized lands to the north. 2b

In 4000 BR the people of Icthier were forced to abandon their city because of drastic changes to the environment. This disaster is recorded as the Time of the Burning Sky. The Menites found refuge in the lands along the Black River. In 2800 BR Valent Thrace united the Menites and built a new city called Calacia at the mouth of the Black River. Calacia had stone walls which led to it being called the Shield of Thrace. 2c

Calacia became established as the new center of the Menite civilization. It became a center of innovation and progress. Calacian soldiers were armed with steel swords and longbows and armored in iron. This combined with their discipline and drill made Calacian soldiers more than a match for the barbarian tribes who raided the kingdom. 2c

Priest-King Golivant led the army of Calacia against the worshipers of the Devourer Wurm. Golivant attacked and burned a number of villages west of Calacia. Horfar Grimmr, a trollkin chieftain gathered various Molgur tribes for an attack on Calacia. 2d

Golivant bested Grimmr in combat and the great chieftain was taken prisoner. After watching their champion tortured and executed the Molgur abandoned the siege and withdrew to the forests and mountains. 2d Golivant spent the next ten years breaking the power of the Molgur, finally succeeding in 2200 BR by driving the Molgur from the Wyrmwall Mountains.2a Never again would the Molgur be united as a single people. 2d

After the death of Priest-King Golivant I, Calacia disintegrated into warring parties and Priest-King Golivant II was killed. It was not until 2051 BR that Priest-King Golivant III took power and reunited the Menites of the Black River.2a In 2050 BR2d he reconsecrated the city of Calacia to Menoth and named it Caspia. The city was greatly expanded and new fortifications were erected. In time these new defenses would lead to the city being named the City of Walls. 2d
