The shattered History of Island Inquest

The shattered History is a catch-all name for history at large in Inquest.

Throughout time and by Magic history was (quite literally) changed, often by aa single person's whim. Most of the past is no longer linear or was lost entirely.

There are no sources that provide definitive truth, as there are many examples of historic events that only survived in either oral traditions or written records that actively contradict each other.

    Release of Prosenial
    Revolution

    Prosenial separatists succeed in a coup against the drusseodian instantiated Duke in Brussal.

    The War of Prosenials Liberation extends to overthrow the drusseodian royal dynasty after they refuse to acknowledge Prosenials Sovereignity.

    Traditional drusseodian Phalanxes march head-first into Prosenials Firing-Lines, equipped with the first Scrollthrowers to be used in military history.

    A weakened Drusseodia capitulates without condition in 1805. Splinter groups are hunted by prosenial Armed Forces until the integration of both States in the newly formed dual-monarchy: "Prosenial-Drusseodia".

    Almost a third of Inquests population, six million Civilians and Soldiers, fall victim to the war.
