Kingdom of Haense

Response to the Missive to the Kingdom of Haense

24 posts in this topic

To whom it may concern,


We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, encompassing his most steadfast courtiers, his strongest knights, his most accomplished nobles, and the denizens from the edge of the Greyspine Mountains to the Storm Sea to the Forests of Grendock to the peak of Otto’s Spine, have received your letter and read it in earnest, consulting among His Majesty’s diligent councillors and chairmen over said letter’s contents. And so We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, have seen so fit to respond in kind.

 

As We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, believe you knowledgeable within the histories of Man, you will know that the northern peoples, be they Raevir, Hansetian, or otherwise, have made their permanent impression within it, such as Our very Prophet Sigismund, Praised Be Unto Him, who united the Empire after the dreadful fragmentation due to the deeds to the very dwarfish folk and human dissenters which now plague our southern neighbors, or the brilliant Saint Wilfriche of Hanseti, butchered for his loyalties to the Crown of Oren by barbarians and the brutally ambitious. Other very northern peoples include the holy Saint Theodosius, holy monk and seer, the heroes of the Schismatic Wars- Saint Emma of Woldzimir, the fe-warrior and general, Saint Otto of Haense, a forsaken prince banished from the very enemy realm, the gallant King Andrew of Oren, known by mostly all as Andrik Vydra the defender of Our Faith, and High Pontiff Saint Daniel I, Our Holy Father during such a turbulent time-, numerous High Pontiffs, four of the Empire’s very Emperors, and some of its most famous military minds, including the mentioned Saint Emma of Woldzimir, the brothers Peter and Thomas Chivay, and the Hansetian King Mark.

 

And We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, list this individuals not to claim their accomplishments for Ourselves, lament over their deaths and losses to Us, or gloat their actions before the world. No, for We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, wish to expose one simple fact- Oren is the northern peoples, and We, the northern citizenry, are Oren to its very degree. Without its northern peoples, there would be no Holy Empire which We bend Our knees to, swear Our oaths of undying fealty, and serve in its wars against the plights of the World. And so We, the citizenry of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, shall respectfully decline this diabolical invitation to join this upstart rebellion for We, the citizenry of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, shall not destroy the very Empire which We, the citizenry of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, helped to forge.

 

Despite such, We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, also desire to compose a list of all reasonings against any thoughts to secede from the most Holy Orenian Empire, ruled by Her Emperor:

  • The Most Holy Orenian Empire grants unto us true autonomy in the creation of Our Laws and Code, and henceforth allows for our very system of bureaucratic leadership and noble integrity to exist. The Most Holy Orenian Empire guarantees us these very Freedoms to be proper and pure, and not once has the Most Holy Orenian Empire broken such promise. Seceding from the Most Holy Orenian Empire not only places Our Freedoms and Autonomy in jeopardy to the scheming dwarfish lords who crave the Empire of Grand King Thorin once more, sees us molested by all outside threats which desire to see Our autonomy broken.

  • The Most Holy Orenian Empire grants unto us peace within its realms, allowing Us to retain Our own military systems and procedures, and promising us no hostilities between Ourselves and the Most Holy Orenian Empire in its entirety. Seceding puts such at risk, as the mentioned rebel dissenters of the south promise nothing but more chaos, and We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, thirst for order in the turbulent world, and would see Us as targets if they, the rebels, ever reached Our northern borders.

  • The Most Holy Orenian Empire has not taxed Us, the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, not a single time, and indeed the last recorded tithe upon Our preceding titles was on 5th of the Amber Cold, 1537 paid to His Imperial Majesty the Emperor John I by His Grace the Duke Otto II of Carnatia for a sum of one-thousand crowns. Within the span of nearly six decades, His Imperial Majesty has not lifted a single levy upon Us, and in point of fact delivered Us funds when We, the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, expanded northwards to claim the northern wastes in the Honor of Oren. Seceding from the Most Holy Orenian Empire may see such an agreement squandered, for any future body to ever replace Our current Most Holy Orenian Empire may their tithes upon Our Royal Treasury.

  • The Most Holy Orenian Empire has rightfully defended Our territory during Our times of needs, and inherently has continued to do as we serve in turn to them. Our sovereignty as a nation, albeit within the Most Holy Orenian Empire, is henceforth protected under both the authority of the Imperial State and His Imperial Majesty, whoever He may be. Seceding from the Most Holy Orenian Empire places such defense at risk, as the resources, manpower, and political stability which the Most Holy Orenian Empire is henceforth absolved.

  • The Most Holy Orenian Empire has given not only Us, the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, but all denizens within its fair borders protection in trade and mercantile, allowing our trustworthy merchants access to the bustling hub of Johannesburg, the trade nation of the Sutican Isles, to even the foreign ports of the Aeldinic Empire, extending our wares and coin across the known world of Man. Seceding from the Most Holy Orenian Empire puts such a situation at risk, cutting Our most needed trade routes and supplanting Our economy into risk with such an unguaranteed result.

  • The Most Holy Orenian Empire has given not only Us, the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, but all denizens within its fair borders a clean established succession and transition of rule; from father to son, brother to brother, uncle to nephew, Our Most Holy Orenian Empire allows for the single-most greatest succession from any known realms, be it from the past to the future. Seceding from the Most Holy Orenian Empire will attempt to supplant such fair changeover to that of the ones of old, where the heir was unclear and soon after the monarch perished the realm delved into chaos.

  • Our ties, the blood-relations of the Royal House of Barbov, place Us close with the Imperial House of Horen, for which Our gracious King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska is betrothed to His Imperial Majesty’s beautiful daughter, and soon on with other vassals of the Imperial State which We, the Royal House of Barbov, share roots. And despite such relations with the House of Staunton, they have attempted to claim titles rightfully belonging to His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, while the Imperial House has not attempted such a move but rather allotted us royal pedigree, delivering Us prestige and status none other has done before. Seceding from the Most Holy Orenian Empire gives dishonor to both our Royal House of Barbov and the Most Holy Orenian Empire’s generous gifts unto Our Royal House.

 

It is by those reasons why We, the Royal Court of His Majesty the King of the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, most humbly deny your offer of such treason. And while We understand you have meant no disrespect in such letter, We have taken this as a grievous insult, attempting to question both Our honor and Our loyalty to His Imperial Majesty and the Imperial State.

 

Indeed We, the Dual Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Hanseti and Ruska, shall not lay down any arm, be it sword or shield, quill or axe, weapon or otherwise, in this defense Our Most Holy Orenian Empire. We shall not rest after the lucky defeat at the Battle of the Gorge, or rest when We take your walls at Kaer Ostwick and tear it down log by log, brick by brick, the mortar destroyed and it ransacked to nothingness. No, for We shall only rest once We grind your pitiful band of cretins and insurgents back into the sands of the Southern Sea where you belong, when the dishonorable and vile Tobias Staunton hangs from the cedar tree.

 

Respectfully yours,

His Majesty the King Marius I of Hanseti and Ruska, the Ever Loyal Subject of His Imperial Majesty, Grand Prince of the Raev, Duke of Carnatia, Krajia, Courland, and Akovia, Count of Siegrad, Ayr, Kavat, Karovia, Torun, and Kaunas, Baron of Vsenk, Lord of St. Karlsburg, Protector of the Highlanders.

Andrik grumbles from heaven or hell wherever he was sent, "They seem comfortable with their leash, they should try out things for themselves instead of having it handed to them by the Empire. I'd rather not have my descendants destroyed by this immeasurable Coalition."

"To say that the blood of old Kaedrin is the property of Haense is pure madness!"

The young King Marius reads the missive and slowly absorbs the contents of the wording with a grin.
