Berengar I was the son of Roger, the first duke of Umbria and was teached the responsability of a rule to its people. When he was young, his father went with his men to the war against the zoanthropes. Two years latter the Sun Queen Shatrevar of the Dawn Kingdom launched a campaign to recover Umbria and Berengar send a message to his father, the message never arrived because Roger died in the war. The umbrian troops returned home and the new duke was crowned. The forces of the Sun Queen were far more powerful than the ones of the Duke, whose duchy only had twelve years of existance. Several times help requests were send to the emperor, in hope of recieving some reinforcements. Unluckily, the emperor didn't answer his call, as the werebeasts were winning and he needed all his troops. In the year 230, Baneria was under siege. When Berengar tought that the war was over, the university approached the duke and offered the help of the mages in exchange of the removal of the imperial law that forbbiden them to teach magic. He accepted and the mages broke the siege of Baneria. True to his word, not only removed the imperial law, something that he was not allowed to, but reformed the institutions to give the university a place in the government. Four years latter, the war was over, and Umbria was the winner. When the war against the werebeasts ended, the emperor was enraged with Berengar. He sent an envoy to Umbria, telling to Berengar that he should restore the imperial law and undo the changes to the system, besides, he was called to come to the imperial palace to answer for such actions. The duke proclaimed himself prince of the umbrians and told the envoy to tell the emperor that if he wanted the imperial law restored, he would have to do so by the sword. The emperor sent its armies to the south, but the exhaustion from the war and the superior magic support that Umbria had made the south a lost cause for the empire. During that war, he and the leader of the university, Bernart of the Fire Sword, become good friends. The emperor, at 250 AoL, decided that the south was not worth such costly war and retired his troops, telling Berengar that he accepted was no longer interested in them, ending the war. The next year, following Bernart advice, he reunited his vassals, the university and the more prominent merchants and made the foundations of the Umbria Principality. Together, using the santuarian constitutions that the university presented as a base, they wrote down the constitutions that would rule the principality from that day onwards. That same day divided Umbria in two marches and gave the North March to his good friend Bernart. He ruled umbria until he died on his bed.
