  1. RECTIFICATION OF INHERITANCE 11th of Msitza and Dargund, 344 E.S “With Duty, Comes Honor” @Drew2_dude @_NotChris To His Majesty Koeng Josef, One of the important traditions of our estate is the designation of the titles vested to us. I am faced with an immense sense of pride and resolve to ensure that the House of Kortrevich further serves to glorify Your Majesty and the realm to which we owe our highest esteem. I take this moment with profound and most personal sentiments. When put before God, His will must always come first. As I write to you, I bear the news of my eldest son’s recent illegitimacy to lead our honorable House to a prosperous future. The former heir-apparent to the Margraviate of Korstadt and the Barony of Koravia has openly shown his disinterest to lead by joining the ranks of the Canonist church, which by default relinquishes his claim to patriarchy. While I and my fellow kin hold no ill sentiments to my eldest son, I do seek to rectify the inheritance of the Kortrevich household. Koeng Josef, I compose this missive to you with the desire for you to affirm my second-born son Rickard Otto Kortrevich’s legitimacy to the inheritance to the House of Kortrevich and all titles vested to us through the Crown’s authority. Glory to Haense, Glory to Kortrevich IV JOVEO MAAN, THE MOST HONORABLE, Lord Viktor Otto Kortrevich, Margrave of Korstadt, Baron of Koravia, Kastellan Scribe HIS LORDSHIP, Lord Rickard Otto Kortrevich HIS LORDSHIP, Lord Karl Kortrevich
  2. VOL. 1 EXCLUSIVE EDITION. 15 Baruch & Kortrevich Publishing Three Minas per Edition Available in Nauvmarian THE GOLDEN CROW CHRONICLES New Reza, Haense Tov and Yermey, 339 E.S. | Sun’s Smile, 1786 10 pages Written by: Viktor Kortrevich & Sigmar Baruch Published by: B&K Publishing Pg. 1 ROYAL UNION OF BARBANOV AND BARUCH A rendering of King Josef standing next to Isabel Baruch, circa. 1786 The Kingdom of Haense took part in wondrous revelry as the union of King Josef I and Queen Isabel Baruch took place in the historic Haeseni basilica outside of Old Reza. The Basilica was filled to the brim with people, seats were hard to come by. His Holiness, Pontiff James II conducted a beautiful service as the two conjoined in holy matrimony. There were many notable guests in attendance including the Rex of the Orcs, King Halvar of Norland, and the Grand King Jorvin Starbreaker of the Dwarves, who might I add were a treat to converse with. Unfortunately, the Emperor and the Empress along with the Archchancellor could not find the time to attend. There was a wonderful feast after the ceremony where gifts were given to the Royal couple and the people and guests took part in fellowship with food and drink. It was quite the merry time! The royal couple wrote to us wishing to thank all those that attended and to thank their special guests for honoring them by coming to their wedding. <link> Written by: Sigmar Baruch Pg. 2 ADVERTISEMENT “TAVERN TUESDAYS, COME ON BY!” New Reza, Andrik’s Road II A beautiful painting of the Crow’s Hearth Tavern in the center of New Reza Hold on, you there!

Since its initial establishment in 1610 to the more recent establishment by King Marius II, the Duma is made up of the Haeseni peers that exist within Haense along with elected officials such as the Maer, the Royal Alderman and the Tribune. By decree of the Grand Lady of Hanesti-Ruska, Miss Belladonna d’Amato along with Lord Boris Ruthern and Lord Alric Ruthern have put together an effort to stimulate the Haeseni youth into an ‘enlightened, further educated future’ by establishing the first ever Junior Duma. The Junior Duma will open its doors on ((Monday at 3PM EST)) to the Haeseni youth to enroll themselves into an ‘entertaining, learning experience’ that is New Reza’s Junior Duma. <link> Written by: Viktor Kortrevich Pg. 4 ADVERTISEMENT “IF YOU LOOK GOOD, WE LOOK GOOD!” Greyspine Road II, New Reza An illustration of Barclay Fades Barbershop Oh, prevja!

After the honorable Sir Osvald Barclay gave his testimony to us about his sudden removal of office, he was disgracefully ridiculed for his interview, therefore the author thought it was only right to follow up with Lord Barclay. His final comments on the subject were, “It’s sad that I can niet longer serve my Empress”. If it were up to me, this dignified paper would not respond to such elitist Orenian babble, but the integrity of an honorable knight and Haeseni official was contested by an undisclosed, unidentified, laughable excuse of a man who decided to remain in anonymity. It is not only shameful but repulsive to demean the character of a dignified public servant. The Statesman is so named but clearly the editors responsible for allowing such a lambasting article know nothing of the dignity and integrity of becoming a statesman. This paper openly and honestly stands behind its statements as it delves further into discovering the truth of the Imperial administration and its plans for Haense as is our duty as writers, authors, and journalists of Haense. The authors respect the current Archchancellor and his administration, but plan to scrutinize both, as all citizens of the empire should, to make sure they are measuring up to what the people of Haense as well as the greater Oren expect from them. We do have a recommendation for the shallow being, whoever it may be, that wrote that nonsensical proselytism. An anonymous paper with anonymous sources has no credibility. We at the Golden Crow implore the author or authors of The Statesman to get real sources, not ones they conjure up or fabricate. We also urge the author(s) to open up about their identity so that their readers can decide if they’re credible or not, but after reading that slop it's clear why none would pin their name to it. More on the Imperial administration will be mentioned on the next page in our interview with the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Celestine Herbert. Written by: Sigmar Baruch Pg. 6 INTERVIEW WITH CELESTINE HERBERT A painting of Miss Celestine Herbert, circa. 1786 The following is a transcript of the interview with Celestine Herbert: “What position do you hold in the Imperial Cabinet Miss Celestine?” "I currently serve within the Stahl-Elendil Ministry as the Imperial Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. I was appointed to the position three years ago, after the appointment of Jonah Stahl-Elendil to the position of Archchancellor. As a long time supporter of the Josephite Union and a distinguished anthropologist and world traveler, I was invited to join his Ministry upon its formation." “Interesting, and what do you exactly do in your position as Secretary of Foreign Affairs?” "Well, I am in short the face of the Holy Orenian Empire abroad. I attend to all matters regarding external relations and foreign diplomacy on behalf of Her Imperial Majesty and the Stahl-Elendil Ministry. It is also my duty to serve as the chief diplomat and negotiator abroad for the Imperial Crown." “Quite a big job you have, what are some of the accomplishments and things you’ve been involved in during your tenure?” ”I must be honest with you, the negotiation and signing of the Treaty of Owynsburg has perhaps been my proudest achievement to date. Peace with the Kingdom of Norland was something that many once thought to be an impossibility not ten or twenty years ago. But now, through the adoption of that treaty we have signed a pact of non-aggression and have at long last normalized relations with one another. Since then, our relationship with Norland has flourished, and I personally consider this to be one of the Ministry’s greatest achievements. Although I am afraid that I am not at liberty to discuss the rest of my endeavours as Foreign Secretary, I am able to say that my undersecretary and I have once again restored our diplomatic ties with the Halfling settlement of Brandybrook in recent years. We are also currently in talks with the leadership of Haelun’or regarding the establishment of a stronger relationship between the Silver State and the Holy Orenian Empire. But more is yet to come, to be sure, and I hope to be able to tell the Chronicle all about the projects being pursued by the Foreign Office in due time!” “A treaty with Norland is quite the accomplishment Miss Celestine, and might I say with normalized relations have been great, I know my family has gone on a few hunts with the Norlanders since. Another thing you're heavily involved in, and really as you mentioned the reason you got the job, is the Northern Geographical Society, would you mind telling us some more about the future plans or anything else you’d like to comment on about the NGS?” ”Oh, why of course! In all honesty, the Northern Geographical Society, or NGS for short, has been a lifelong project of mine that I am extremely passionate about. While our flagship museum is famously located in New Reza, we maintain institutions in the cities of Helena and Owynsburg as well. Thus, we maintain a chain of museums across the entire Empire, with aspirations to even expand beyond its borders in the coming years. My dream is one born out of the carnage, chaos, and hatred of the Rubern War. The war consumed the entirety of my childhood, and when I first began my career, I pledged to seek out ways to alleviate the hatred that existed between the many races and cultures of Arcas however I could. Since our founding nearly a quarter century ago, we have published cultural studies on every imperial province, as well as on the Lost Continent of Athera, the Rexdom of Krugmar, the Kingdom of Norland, and most recently Siramenor. It is our hope to release even more to the public in the coming years.(edited) The NGS has also taken great strides in preserving the histories of both Haense and of the greater Empire, publishing numerous studies and maintaining numerous interactive exhibits within our museums in regards to both. Our exploratory program is also top of the line, having ventured into such exotic places as ancient Athera and the Nether. In the coming years, we hope to increase our public outreach, publish yet more ethnographic studies, and continue exploring new frontiers as our organization continues to grow.” “I know I enjoy my visits to the museum in New Reza when I have the time. Now back to your role as Secretary of Foreign Affairs, how have you felt about your time in the Imperial administration and what’s your opinion on the current state of affairs?” ”Well, one must first understand that I am not a career politician, Mister Baruch. I am merely a humble writer and a scholar. The pen is my ally, not my tongue! Before my appointment to this position, I had never sought higher office before in my life, and thus adjusting to working in the public sphere has been a little bit of a challenge. Regardless, I have fared quite well on a personal level, although I do feel as though I’ve something to prove as the first Haeseni to sit on the imperial cabinet since Otto Alimar over sixty years ago and as only the second woman to ever do so. The other ministers of the Imperial Crown are decent and honorable people, men who I have come to respect over the last three years. They are men who are trying to do their best to preserve the Empire both at home and abroad, to maintain the peace which are forefathers fought for, and to ensure the continued prosperity of all the Empire’s realms. Jonah especially is a just and honorable man who I have called my friend for decades now, and I am proud to serve in his Ministry. I will admit however that we are going through times of great change, with the naming of a new Archchancellor and the ascension of a new Empress. But, as I like to tell the members of the NGS, one’s horizons can never be expanded if you are afraid to explore new frontiers.” “An interesting take Miss Celestine, I can tell you that you are making us Haeseni proud, especially us old ones who witnessed the last time we had a Haeseni in the Imperial Administration. My final question is this Miss Celestine, as a respected Haensemen in a high position, you have a target on your back, and with current events in mind, are you afraid you may be next to be suddenly removed from your office and then called ineffective and untrustworthy by an “unnamed source” in an elitist paper? ”Ha, not in the slightest! The Archchancellor has been my friend for years, and it is at his personal request that I am serving in the Stahl-Elendil Ministry. Worry not, Mister Baruch, for I hold no fear in my heart of being discharged any time soon. I do good work in the Foreign Office, and when I choose to eventually retire, it shall be on my own terms. Although I yearn for the day that I can fully devote myself to the Northern Geographical Society again, I do not expect for it to be any time soon. As to Sir Osvald, I would prefer not to comment on the matter, as it is not my place to do so as a minister of the Imperial Crown. And as to my own personal honor potentially being targeted by the press, I am not afraid. I am a charitable philanthropist and an apolitical official of the government who seeks only to properly represent our interests abroad, and I am a respectable member of both Haeseni and Helenian society. I do not fear the newspapers, for I have nothing to hide. It is only when we are consumed by our fear that we have truly lost ourselves, and I will not allow mine to consume me.” “Well for your sake and ours, I hope that is true and you can continue to do an excellent job serving Haense and the greater Oren. If you receive any insults from this interview by that halfwitted editor of the other paper and a few of your “anonymous colleagues” we’ll be sure to help you out where we can, have a good evening Miss Celestine.

Written by: Viktor Kortrevich Pg. 9 OPINION OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS LUKAS RAKOCZY’S REMARKS A sketching of Mr. Lukas Rakoczy, drawn by @Zaerie The following is a transcript of the interview with Lukas Rakoczy: “Greetings old friend, congrats on your re-election. If it wasn't for me retiring I would join you to fight for our constituents once more. How have the Commons so far?” “Thank you, Lord Sigmar. I'll always remember our time together in the Commons. As for how the Commons go so far, we've just elected our new President.” “What do you think of the current makeup of the Commons?” “Well, with five of us independents and seven Josephites, I imagine this session will feel like one of our longest ones yet. I can promise you now though, as the Leader of the Opposition, I will do my best to make sure the interests of the people are kept in mind in everything this House achieves.” “I noticed you did not get re-elected as President, this is sad to see, what happened?” “Da, I'm sure some are sad while others celebrate. Our new President is the Secretary of the Treasury, Mr George Galbraith. Frankly, I am incredibly concerned by this development. I argued that the leader of the chamber must not be a cabinet minister; not someone who is part of the cabinet and is therefore directly tied to the executive branch. I had hoped that the Josephites would follow their own precedent set decades ago, from when Edward Napier turned down his nomination for President due to his role as Secretary of Civil Affairs, or when the House rejected Farooq Gray as President because of his role as Solicitor General. Unfortunately, it seems the Josephites only care for precedent or the separation of the executive and legislative branch only when it benefits them. I fear that this House will be nothing more than a puppet for the Archchancellor, who has already attempted to pass over votes and debates by claiming he owns what he calls a 'presumed majority'.” “Is the current Josephite party the same as it was under Terrence May?” “The current party is most definitely not the same as it was under President May. The Josephite party of the past had dignity, it had ideals, it had morals. This party is riddled with hypocrisy and, needless to say, I am very concerned for the future of the House.” “How is the majority and the Stahl-Elendil administration treating the minority?” “Thus far, there has been very little communication between myself and the Archchancellor, though I hope that will change in the coming years.” “How do you think this session will play out for the people of Haense?” “To be honest, I am unsure. There's much doubt surrounding what will be proposed during this session, though I hope to see the Lord Palatine's Lord Lieutenant bill discussed a bit more.” Written by: Sigmar Baruch & Viktor Kortrevich Transcribed by: Rickard Kortrevich Pg. 10 HISTORICAL FIGURE OF THE YEAR Lord Jan Kovachev Duke of Carnatia A sketching of Jan Kovachev, circa. 1556 Jan rose through the ranks of the Orenian army during the War of the Ducal Coalition, and when he was able to be captured Norvik in 1525, he was granted the castles and the estates he conquered. He supported John Horen during the Horen Restoration, and later became one of his most trusted commanders during the Eighteen Years’ War. Jan commanded the Carnatian Hussars, and with his fellow peer Josef, was the leader of the Haeseni contingent during the war. He served alongside Petyr Barbanov during the Riga War and the Krajian Rebellion, subduing the Hansetian hinterlands and helping unify what later became the Kingdom of Haense. His death left him as the Duke of Carnatia and his family to continue as one of the principal Karovic houses within humanity for centuries. His veteran cavalry became a staple of the Haeseni army, and his descendants would continue to dominate the Haeseni army for some decades. He lived well into his nineties, and for it he was called ‘Jan the Old’. *Excerpted from ‘Haeseni People’ documentation <link> @6xdestroyer Editor's Note: Regarding Future Editions We the Writers at B&K Publishing wish to remind our readers that this edition was published by a request made by the Crown.

  3. KING MARIUS I OF HAENSE MARUS VAR ANDRIK BARBANOV MARCIUS FILIUS ANDRIK BARBANOVI [!] The third Haeseni monarch dressed in his royal garbs @Piov PREFACE. “Under the ‘Hereditary Semi-Absolute Monarchy’ that exists in the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, there exists a single monarch that rules from the time of his coronation to the time of his death. Haense’s third monarch led his Kingdom from the tender age of two till his young death in exile after trudging through great struggle with open war and open rebellion. I like most who read this, wasn't alive to see King Marius rule his sovereign realm but, similar to some I’ve heard a great many stories by those who had relatives who were alive during his reign. In this memoir, you’ll find the beginnings of King Marius’ life, his turn towards marriage, his struggling reign which included many noteworthy achievements and failures that continue to be studied and learned more about. With this chronicle, I seek to dedicate it to the third monarch of Hanseti-Ruska. May you read this and be enlightened on the life of His Majesty, King Marius ‘The Good’.” Sir Viktor Kortrevich. Korstadt, 1786. CHILDHOOD. The young princeling was born in the City of St. Karlsburg in the year 1584 in the grand palace of Ottosgrad. As a babe he took to the throne at the mere age of two, remaining under regency until his childhood rendered its end at age fourteen. Marius was fathered by King Andrew and mothered by Queen Reza the second king and first queen in their own right. From the moment he was able to walk to the time he reached the age of majority, Marius took to his studies while under regency which was led by his uncle, Prince Charles. It is noted that during his childhood he was well-favored amongst his peers which would remain true as he bared the crown of his nation following his turn towards adulthood. Unlike children his age, his maturity excelled past them as was to be expected when he was befitted the stature of being the third monarch of his Kingdom by just his second year of breath. ~ MARRIAGE & FAMILY LIFE. By the time in which King Marius neared adulthood, a marriage was expected to follow. While history recounts the Queen to be, Adelaide vas Ruthern; many assume the marriage was but superficial and in some accounts believed to be for show. Nevertheless, two sons were brought into the world by the names of Peter and Stephen, the latter of which would be named the successor of King Marius. [!] A painting of Queen Adelaide of Metterden, circa 1605 While actual memory of Queen Adelaide remains to be non-existent, it is widely recorded that King Marius similar to his youth was well liked by his people with the inclusion of his royal kinfolk. ~ REIGN. At the dawn of his life which coincides with the beginning of his rule, he set the precedent of being the youngest Barbanov ever to become King of Haense in history. Following his late father’s execution by the hands of Emperor Philip by way of boiling of ‘milk’, Marius took to the throne at age two and officially sat upon the throne at age fourteen following his grand coronation. Twelve long years would stretch on as his uncle, Prince Charles led the Kingdom underneath regency. Without any known issues that arose during regency, King Marius elevated himself to his birthright position as he reached his fourteenth name day. Transference from regency to proper rule came as a result of Prince Charles’ death during the first battle led against the Coalition. While Marius was dubbed ‘The Good’ by his reign’s end, it is known that the Coalition against the Holy Orenian Empire, the Brawm Rebellion and ultimately the Great Northern War placed severe suffering for the young King. The Coalition War ensued as the Axionite forces slowly moved towards victory, as an immediate result the Hanseti-Ruska Crown expedited their forces into retreat as they declared for autonomy. A few short winters passed along, and the Holy Orenian Empire as it was known dissolved and saw formal recognition by Urguan. From that point, King Marius ruled as an independent King in the North. During the brief period where Haense saw independence, they disbanded vassal levies, reduced vassal fiefdoms, and imposed vassal taxes. These taxes imposed by King Marius saw some resistance from houses like Amador; ‘The Memoirs of Alywin Blaxton’ perfectly reveal the baronial house’s perspective on King Marius’ reign. Following the abrupt dissolution of Oren, King Marius was declared the Defender of the Faith by High Pontiff Daniel IV. King Marius remains to be the first and only king to be declared the ‘Defender of the Faith’ by the Cannonist Church. Shortly after the Coalition War saw its final end, the House of Barbanov and the House of Brawm saw increasing tension following the aftermath of balkanization. The Siege of Houndsden followed suit in the early year of 1600. The Siege lasted some months before defectors within the Brawm household grew in number, as a result King Marius and his royal commanders ordered for the Royal Army to close in on seizing and destroying the Brawm keep. During the twenty-year long reign of the third monarch, it is widely understood that Marius saw more transgressions against his Kingdom. As a precautionary measure, King Marius travelled to the Kingdom of the Westerlands and requested to form a military alliance, but to no avail as their King, Caius I declined because they were preoccupied with the fight against daemons at the edge of the world. Just a year following the end of the Siege of Houndsden, Prince Meric of Courland saw perish in Haense. At the time, King Tobias of Courland quickly assumed this was an act of aggression and would soon issue an ultimatum to the young King. To no avail though, as Marius himself issued an ultimatum of his own. In an illicit attempt to settle the growing tensions between the two Kingdoms, Princess Annabelle of Courland made her ways upon the Haeseni walls before promptly being captured and placed into custody by Marius’ command. It was this act alone that led the Duke of Marna to negotiate for her release, which led to his prompt assasination. These disguised attempts to settle the ever-growing tensions between the two vast Kingdoms resulted in no compromise which would soon lead the two into the Great Northern War. The Battle of Elba was the first battleground in which both Kingdoms’ forces met, unfortunately Haense’s forces clashed with that of Courland and quickly fell to defeat. Peace was offered by the Courlandic adversaries but, due to the inner workings of said peace offering the Kingdom of Haense swiftly refused. The war continued to rage forth as Haense suffered yet another crushing defeat at the Siege of Vasiland, which allowed for Courland to be in close proximity to Haense’s capital city of St. Karlsburg. With no other choice at play, King Marius settled to spare his capital and people. Marius capitulated before issuing a formal surrenderance to the Kingdom of Courland. The complete dissolution of the Kingdom of Haense followed and the division of its former lands were divided between Courland and Urguan. From that point on, the royal household of Barbanov sought refuge in the Kingdom of Mardon where they lived in exile for the remaining years of their lives until House Barbanov saw a turn for a new page, and a new beginning. ~ AULIC COUNCIL. Under every Haeseni monarch since the dawn of this Kingdom’s rise to authority, there exists an Aulic Council which consists of a variety of lords and ladies most-worthy of said specified position. During the third monarch’s reign, King Marius had a small Aulic council which can be listed here: Lord Chancellor- Charles Bihar, Henrik Kovachev, Lucas Vanir Lord Marshal- Henry-Otto Bihar Lord Steward- Cassian Colborn General- Eric Ruthern, Andrew Kovachev ~ DEATH. After the aftermath of the Great Northern War, Marius and his known household sought refuge in the Kingdom of Mardon. Seven years had passed since his Kingdom fell to the Courlandic tyrants, and as a result Marius exuded melancholic tendencies to which he became voraciously dependent on alcohol. This would lead the young monarch to an early grave in 1611 at the age of twenty-seven as he sailed a final day at sea off the coasts of Mardon.

  4. KING ROBERT I OF HAENSE ROBERT LOTHAR VAR SIGMAR BIHAR ROBERT LOTHARIUS FILIUS SIGUINIUS BIHARISIS [!] The twelfth Haeseni monarch holding the falconer’s falcon @JuliusAakerlund PREFACE. “Under the ‘Hereditary Semi-Absolute Monarchy’ that exists in the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, there exists a single monarch that rules from the time of his coronation to the time of his death. Haense’s twelfth monarch who brought the Haeseni host from the Vaeyl devastated continent of Atlas to the unknown continent of Arcas, was King Robert I of House Barbanov. I like most who read this, wasn't alive to see King Robert rule his sovereign realm but, similar to some I’ve heard a great many stories by those who were alive during his reign. One of those being my late-grandfather Lord Otto Kortrevich, former Lord Marshal of Haense(1706-1724). During my youth, a plentiful amount of stories were either read to me or told to me by personal account. Many of which came from the voice of my grandfather, a great host of which pertaining to the former Red Prince. In this memoir, you’ll find the beginnings of King Robert’s life, his turn towards marriage, his peaceful reign which included many noteworthy achievements that remain to be modeled after and the events leading to his young passing. With this chronicle, I seek to dedicate it to the twelfth monarch of Hanseti-Ruska and my grandfather Lord Otto. May you read this and be enlightened on the life of His Majesty, King Robert ‘The Kind’.” Sir Viktor Kortrevich. Korstadt, 1785. CHILDHOOD. The young prince was born in the City of Markev in the year 1666 in the vast Krepost Palace that encompassed the centre point of the Red City. Robert was fathered by King Siguine and mothered by Queen Sophia. His early boyhood progressed at an ease which was comforted by his royal lineage although was placed into his grandfather’s tutelage at the budding age of five. Through his grandfather’s guidance, young Robert quickly mastered the arts of both diplomacy and delegation which secluded himself away from his younger kinfolk. While his grandfather, Robert Sigismund would teach him the ways which would garner him some advantage come the time he took the throne, the staunch Ruthern patriarch of Rhys var Ruthern would tutor the young princeling in the study of swordsmanship, archery and common footwork. Before the dawn of adulthood, Robert evidently suffered the loss of his father. A time of mourning ensued immediately before promptly being named the twelfth monarch of his home country. Before nearing his twenties, Robert was crowned at the age of sixteen in the year 1682 which would mark the beginning of his long reign that would span over two decades. ~ MARRIAGE & FAMILY LIFE. As Robert grew from a young lad to an aging adult who ascended to the throne that ruled over the domains of Hanseti and Ruska, the monarch carried out many of his studies as a young boy both with his family in the Royal palace and at the estates of the Ruthern household. [!] A painting of Queen Elizaveta of Vidaus, circa 1692 From the earliest memories of his childhood, he grew a friendly bond with former-Lord Marshal, Rhys var Ruthern’s eldest grand-daughter Elizaveta vas Ruthern. Shortly after the passing of his father, the two were arranged into a marriage to each other by former Lord Palatine, Robert Sigismund. ~ REIGN. At the dawn of King Robert’s reign, following a short time of mourning he sought to bring immediate revival of Markev to its former prospering stature seen during the latter half of the Ottonian Era during King Otto II’s rule and King Otto III’s rule. As a result of this desire, Robert revitalized the then decrepit small council that existed during his father’s decentralized reign. He began to form a government filled with men most worthy for the position to assist Robert in returning the Red City of Markev to its former bustling economy and liveliness. It is widely known that King Robert led his Kingdom and people peacefully unlike his predecessor who led the Kingdom to onerous decentralization. While his rule was peaceful in fashion he ultimately did face a rumored threat of rebellion which marched him and his commanders to the formerly held Baruch stronghold of ‘Greyguard Hold’ which was under Arberrang control. After one failed raiding attempt towards the stronghold, Robert alongwith his war commanders met with Prince Augustus I and Prince Cassius Horen to formulate strategic plannings to bring conquest towards Nordengrad and Arberrang. A few short years passed, and Arberrang along with their accompanied allies fell to undesirable defeat by the hands of King Robert and the Empire of Man’s combined armies. In a show of good faith, King Robert returned the former stronghold to the ancestral House of Baruch to Lord Marius Baruch. It is with that that the Baruch household retained their holding from that point on till their move to Arcas; solely because of King Robert’s unequivocal due diligence to return what is rightfully his and his vassals’ property. Let it be known that during the time in which King Robert ruled, equality amongst humans to elves or humans to dwarves or humans to any other race but, humans was unheard of. There are a plentiful number of reasons for why Robert was named ‘The Kind’ but, one of the primary reasons for that moniker that is known amongst all Haeseni is his progressive work to see the elven kind be equals to that of humankind. At the time, some saw this to be great while others stood fervently opposed but time has shown us that this step was most definitely a step in the right direction. As was previously mentioned, King Robert was born in the Red City of Markev but was laid to rest in both a new city but also on a new continent. Before he took his final breath, he led his people through the Vaeyl Wars. For point of reference, the Vaeyl wars was a series of battles fought in the southern reaches of the continent of Atlas, between the fiercely xenophobic Vaeyl Order and Descendant Realms whom the Vaeyl dubbed as intruders and foreign invaders. These wars would stretch from 1667, the year following the birth of Robert till 1704 where the known population of the world were forced to migrate to Arcas at none other than the Vaeyl’s hands. Without Robert’s due directive in leading the charge with the aided assistance of his renown commanders, it is a possibility that without his leadership we as the Haeseni proud would’ve never brought ourselves to the new-world we call home today. For the remainder of his reign, he brought his people to Arcas and formed the city of Reza. He would spend his latter years of his tenure as King spending time hosting events and getting to know his people. From the beginning of his reign to the end, he led a once decentralized nation to peaceful prosperity. Along with the many accomplishments and achievements he bares in the wars he served in, he bares more deeds for serving the common man than any recent Haeseni monarch has in recent history. ~ AULIC COUNCIL. Under every Haeseni monarch since the dawn of this Kingdom’s rise to authority, there exists an Aulic Council which consists of a variety of lords and ladies most-worthy of said specified position. During the twelfth monarch’s reign, King Robert had a small Aulic council dissimilar to ones of the past and present which is listed here: Lord Palatine- Robert Sigismund, Demetrius var Ruthern Lord Marshal- Rhys var Ruthern, Henrik Kovachev, Sergei Stafyr Lord Justicar- Swithun Aldor Knight Paramount- Hans de Ruyter, Varon Kovachev ~ DEATH. Robert Lothar var Sigmar Barbanov-Bihar spent the remaining weeks of his life tending to his Kingdom in ways he had carried out since his coronation twenty-five years ago. But, as each week passed his time spent awake dwindled ever so. The waning days of his full-life were spent more and more by bedside as he came to terms of where he was supposed to be. Following the untimely death of his wife, Queen Elizaveta by way of assasination; King Robert had fallen into an inescapable pit of despair. Fleeting moments of happiness came and went as he spent every waking moment with his family but, to no avail. It was fate that had decided where he and his heart were meant to be. As time moved ever so slowly, a moment that was cherished by his eldest son, Marius and his closest niece, Anastasya were able to say their departing goodbyes to their father and uncle who they had admired since their early youth. As the shared moment saw a hapless end, the twelfth monarch of the Hanseti-Ruska domain prepared his final garbs with the assistance of Lorin before he closed his eyes for a final time to reunite with his lost-love, Elizaveta. “In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” -King Robert to Prince Marius Published by Baruch & Kortrevich Publishing Written by Viktor Kortrevich Public Record found at the NGS Museum

  11. Nikolaus observed the once-young squire ascend to the top of the staircase as he entered the seven skies. Upon his arrival, Nikolaus’ ever-stoic visage turned to an at-ease expression as Konrad reunited with his loved ones. “Since your youthful adolescent years of squireship to your young adulthood as you obtained knighthood to and throughout your long life, you have forever and always placed your kin and kingdom before anything else. Never have you forsaken an oath, Never have you forgotten where you originated from, Never have you turned down your responsibilities to any position you put yourself in. For those reasons alone, you stood and will be remembered as a prominent Haeseni patriot who served his nation in every which way. Now Konrad, join me in reuniting with your loved ones as you help guide those you’ve left behind to a state of everlasting peace and prosperity.”
  12. Nikolaus’ smile grew from ear-to-ear as he drew out his hand to assist his dear cousin, Otto to the skies that flew above. “You’ve remained true to your word, Otto - through and till your hundredth name day you remained true to your word; by preserving Haense, defending our family’s honor and safeguarding our blood. Let it be known, your service stands in solidarity among one of Haense’s most distinguished patriots. Come, join me as many await your arrival.” With that, Nikolaus reached over Otto’s slumped shoulders before they joined those that had been awaiting for his arrival. ____ Viktor sat somberly as Otto took his last breath, retelling in his mind the many stories his grandfather had told and the many lessons he had taught. Upon his children’s hurried withdrawal from the room, Viktor sat in silence as he and his grandfather’s hands were left intertwined. “Be at peace, hauchpader - be at peace.”
