History

August 11, 1430 - The settlement of Acadia is established, becoming the first Ventismarien colony in Rhodevus.

1518 - The construction of Fort Nantes is completed, ending Ghong raids on the city and its bordering villages.

1652 - the Acadian Fire burned down large portions of the city. it had been started by independence supporters in an attempt to remove the governor and his family from the city. In a twisted turn of events, the Governor's Mansion remained one of the few buildings untouched by the fire after the wind turned, spreading the flames to the poorer districts of the city. The men responsible were arrested and flogged, then hanged four days later. This event was spread across the islands' colonies through newspapers as a sign of nationalistic reprisal. Articles would detail the cruel execution of these men, but many papers would leave out the reason behind their executions. This would lead to further revolts and riots in cities such as Quniac City, Cundas City, Kingstown and Rome throughout the ensuing decade.

December 1671 - A ___ fleet was sent to Acadia to link up with French reinforcements to put down the independence revolution.

May 8, 1701 - Acadia becomes the capital of the state of Kye for the First Republic of Rhodevus

June 27, 1845 - Acadia is established as the de facto capital for the province of Iylan

November 11, 1845 - Acadia is recognized as the capital for the province of Iylan
