Founding of the Commonwealth
After Irenaeus' rebellion Krakia fell into a disarray with nobles fighting for power. In the year 10 Church a meeting of nobles were called to Krakgorod. It was the so-called Summit of 4 Dukes, because 4 most powerful Dukes in Krakia were leading the meeting. The rules of the elective monarchy were established during that meeting.
Krakian-Lugian Border War
In 500 Church the Lugian Army crossed the Lugian-Krakian bordered and attacked the local Krakian garrissons. The attack took place for two reasons.

It ended unresolved with Lugians moving back to their territory.
Krakian Commonwealth is currently in good relations with other countries. However, it hasn't been always like that. In 500 Church, Krakia was in a war with Lugia caused by a dispute about the ownership of the resources in the mountains on the Krakian-Lugian border.

Krakian Commonwealth is an elective monarchy. The king is chosen by the nobility from among themself. Members of foreign noble families and ruling dynasties are also allowed to present their candidacy to the assembly of nobles.
Every 4 years nobles from every region of the commonwealth choose 3 represtantives who go to Krakgorod to be in the parliament. Parliament's role is to assist the king and pass new laws. One parliament usually lasts for about a year. Between parliaments the king can pass edicts, but can't pass any important laws such as taxes, war, peace and army. In case of an emergency the king can summon the parliament to pass the laws which are needed.
