  • Very early in the history the lands that the Dhelians lived were absorbed into the Empire of Hefunla
  • The advanced society of the Empire so the Dhelians as backwater citizens and made sure that heavy taxation and lack of education will keep them at bay and servile.
  • A strong and enlightened leadership of the tribe made sure that their young got educated, finding the best and sending them to the academies of the capitals of the empire
