Just to kick this discussion back into gear, here is a cleaned-up and expanded chronology (adapted from Corumayas with revisions by cedh; my own new additions in dark red).

Comments/nitpicks/objections?



0 --- death of Zārakātias
c 100 --- Dāiadak missionaries in Ici Forest and probably elsewhere too
c 130 --- Classical Adāta; Faralo, Naidda, Ndok Aisô, etc.
from 140 on --- conflicts and battles between Thāras and Athalē
183 --- fall of Thāras; rise of Empire of Athalē begins
from 200 on --- Expansion of Athalē into the Eige valley
late 220s --- Balanin civil war in Huyfarah; first Huyfarahan Golden Age ends
c 230 --- ascension of Etou I in Huyfarah
237: Treaty between Athalē and Lasomo fixes their mutual border
244 --- plague in Ici forest, maybe elsewhere too
c 250 --- ascension of Etou II in Huyfarah
c 255 --- failed Faralo invasion of Lasomo: Athalēans cut supply lines of Etou II, possibly at the request of the Lasomians
c 260 --- Lasomo weakened; Athalē expands its influence
c 275 --- Lasomians resent becoming a vassal state and revolt; Athalē invades Lasomo
277 --- First fall of Akeladada
c 295 --- ascension of Gadein I in Huyfarah
c 310 --- ascension of Etou III in Huyfarah
c 320 --- exodus of the Puoni from Huyfarah
c 330 --- Kasca and Buruja become vassal states of Huyfarah by treaty
c 340-400 --- second Huyfarahan Golden Age
c 350 --- Empire absorbs Xōron Eiel; reaches maximum extent

400s --- Imperial Adāta standardized; Athalēan Golden Age, widespread peace and growing trade and literacy
c 500 --- Old Kozado, Koyek
c 700-1000 --- Aθáta
c 800 --- Mavakhalan; both Empires in serious decline
c 800-1100 --- Old Ayāsthi
886 --- Northern Barbarians sack Ussor, Huyfarah never recovers
900s --- splinter states arise from ashes of Huyfarah

971 --- second fall of Akeladada: Empire loses southern Lasomo, then rapidly collapses
c 1000 --- Puoni
c 1100-1300 --- Pencek, Kozado, Middle Ayāsthi
1289 --- printing press invented

Well, since I was already writing up a history... I propose a compromise: not so much a gradual shift as a period of conflict between the ideals of the two systems of monarchy and oligarchy. This seems natural development from the pre-existing governmental diversity in Rathedān.




By the time of Rathedān's unification in 196, the general responsible for much of the unification, Semōn the Elder, had accumulated so much power that despite calling himself only "general", he was the de facto dictator of the fledgling nation. Upon his death in 199, his son Semōn the Younger was the first to proclaim himself ruler by right of inheritance. This did not sit well with the nobility of Athalē, who were accustomed to a more republican form of government. In 201 Semōn the Younger was assasinated, and governance of Rathedān gradually returned to normal.

The idea of royalty was far from dead, however. In 207 and again in 213, powerful politicians nearly succeeded in setting themselves up as absolute rulers. The khiara of Athalē remained in power, however. The final blow to true oligarchy was not immediately obvious when it came: Aiathi, head of one of the most powerful noble houses of Athalē, succeeded in gradually exiling all his political rivals from the khiara. The five other remaining members were all firmly in his pocket by 228. Matters came to a head early the next year, when Aiathi - in control of the army - ignored the zāthar's attempted veto of his decision to invade the lands of the Hitatc. This was not well-received by the public, and riots occurred that spring.

The Hitatc invasion took two years, but was a victory. Aiathi's son Phanal was the popular hero of the war and - unlike his father - the darling of the zāthar. Aiathi installed Phanal in the khiara (to keep him under his thumb, some historians say) and the two of them ruled their fledgling empire. Thus when Aiathi died in 234, it was a natural transition for Phanal to come to power. Smarter than Semōn the Younger, Phanal did not call himself a king, or even a ruler - he simply exercised control through the machinery of the khiara.

The Thārasians saw this ruse for what it was. Thāras was always been a monarchy before its incorporation into the Daiadak league, and its disaffected royal family had quietly waited for decades for its chance. That chance came in 244 when Phanal died unexpectedly, leaving behind only a young son. Tēmekas, head of the Thārasian royal family (the house of Mir) and Phanal's best general (and grandson of Semōn the Younger as well), stepped into the gap. The Athalēan khiara was by this time unaccustomed to any actual power, and gave way to Tēmekas with little fight. Tēmekas was the first to proclaim himself Emperor and succeed. To prove the point he disbanded the zāthar and fought a series of campaigns extending the Empire's borders to the east and north.

When Tēmekas died in 253, the throne passed to his son Mikha. Mikha ruled for four years as a weak emperor, notable only for his military intervention in Lasomo when Huyfarah invaded it. He was assasinated by Phanal's son Uremas, who was eager to return the Empire to the Athalēan control. When Thāras threatened to break from the Empire, risking civil war, Uremas was forced to marry Mikha's sister Naiōla to pacify the Thārasians by uniting the Houses of Aiathi and Mir.

Uremas died in 274, his 16-year-old son took the name Tēmekas II and ascended the throne. Tēmekas II was the first to study the model of Huyfarah and apply many of its methods to the ruling of an empire. In 275 he invaded Lasomo in response to a revolt there, culminating in the First Fall of Akeladada in 277. This made him popular at home, but rather less so in the Empire's newest province. Tēmekas II ruled 36 years and fathered numerous children.

Tēmekas III, eldest son of II, took the throne in 310 upon his father's death, but died later that year in a plague. He was succeeded by his brother Uremas II. Uremas II ruled another fifteen years.

Dates of accession:

House of Aiathi - House of Mir - House of Uremas

228 - Aiathi (approximate)
234 - Phanal

244 - Tēmekas I
253 - Mikha

257 - Uremas I

274 - Tēmekas II
310 - Tēmekas III
310 - Uremas II


Edited to correct spelling of Tēmekas

şeıə ər-àtş éımmı! (Curiously, that's essentially valid old, middle and late Ayāsthi, even in spoken form.) Or perhaps more appropriately in imperial/classical Adāta, SEIE RO ATHE ĪMO! (And while I'm at it, Mavakhalan: sêje raþe jemo!)

It also nicely explains the loaning of Fáralo words, though, it does leave the fate of the zāthar hanging, since Huyfárah does not seem to have a lower house either...
