Westdenia (Uestdanish: Uestadenia} officially the Kingdom of Westdenia, is a parliamentary constitutional monarchy located in the central Longerath continent. It became independent after the break-up of Dascunya in December 316. Westdenia is borders the Bay of Dascunya to the north, Samuelonia to the east and south and West Uhlan to the west. The capital and largest city is Adnemar. Other major cities are Zavandean, Reldamere, Senordney.
The Leameans tribes were the primary ethnic group in what would later become the Kingdom of Uestadenia. Beginning in about 2500 BP, the Gardlies tribe began to expand to the south, entering the northern territories of the Leameans and the Lumattans. The Gardlies were militarily superior to the other tribes at the time, possibly due to their proximity to the more advanced people of ancient Estontetso who were beginning to form kingdoms. The Gardiles made an alliance with the Leamean tribes along the south of the northern bay (the northerly tribes having been conquered) and launched an attack on the Odemoss together. They succeeded, and the territory was split between the Gardlies and the Leameans.
With the territory now called Dascunya now divided between the Gardlies and the Leameans, political structures began to establish themselves. The confederations of tribes that fought the wars of expansion began to coalesce into single states, each lead by a high chieftain. The nation of the Gardlies came to be known as Dascagnia (the origin of the Liliani name for the region, which in turn gives us Dascunya), and the Leamean nation was called Uestadagnia (gradually transferred into Uestadenia).
The Kingdom of Uestadagnia lasted until the Liliani invasions. In 1951 BP, the Lilani Empire began its territorial annexation of Dascagnia and Uestadagnia. Chief Heaga of Uestadagnia allied with Chief Fergus of the Dascagnians, and fought the Liliani legions, under the command of the general Augusto Claudio, at the battle of Werrian. It was the largest pitched battle fought by the Liliani Empire in its conquest of the south, and in it, the Lilianis decisively defeated the Gardlian and Leamean tribes. Fergus was killed in battle, and with his death, resistance to Liliana collapsed, leaving the invaders virtually unopposed. Dascagnia became part of the Liliani Empire. In 1890 BP, Emperor Comesias, first of the Garanones dynasty, launched an invasion of Uestadagnia, which quickly fell, leaving all of modern Dascunya under Liliani rule.
Kingdom of AnglyodascunyaEdit
In 712 BP the Liliani provinces of Dascagnium and Uestadagnium rebelled against Liliani rule. At the same time, peasant revolts took hold of northern Liliana, particularly in the region of Escorpionica. Liliana did not abandon these regions as they did Lendia, however, and mobilised their legions to deal with the problem. This was not enough, however, and after twelve years fighting, was forced to abandon its territories in the south.
Dascunya and Uestadenia, being born of the same rebellion and having fought together against Liliana, were always fairly close friends, and this was maintained by the first monarchs of these nations following their independence. The second king of Dascunya, however, William II, entered into conflict with Uestadenia King Gaewulf I of Uestadenia, conquering the city of Deltland in 662 BP.
In 520 BP, the Ançaldascunyan king Alexander I further enlarged his holdings by marriage to Lorenza of Uestadenia. This created a single kingdom over all of modern Dascunya and more. It was originally referred to as the Kingdom of Dascunya, Uestadenia, and Ançalda, but this was abbreviated to simply Dascunya. Some historians use the name Uestadançaldascunya, but this is regarded by most as too long, and it was never used by the nation itself. Others refer to it as the Drekanian Empire, after the old name of its capital, St. Hugues.
Westdenia officially declared independence from Dascunya in December 316. Theodlac Caerwold became acting Prime Minister of Westdenia until February 317, when Leodhere Astdale won the nations first elections.
Westdenia is divided into three counties, the County of Zavandean in the west, the County of Adnermar in central Westdenia and the County of Senordney in the east.
