The Kingdom of Bretislavia is a country situated on an island situated on the west of the planet of Ridgefield.

Early Years of the Kingdom

The Kingdom of Bretislavia was proclaimed by the National Assembly (Nationalversammlung) in 1565 under Queen Kimberlie I, before her coronation she was known as the Duchess Kimberlie and acted as a colonial governor for the Bretislavian settlement (at the time it was called Dutchendern). However, the historians and archivists do not know what country Bretislavia was a colony for as all records were destroyed after the proclamation and forgotten since then. During her reign Kimberlie established a moderately sized Bretislavian navy of 67 ships. She also opposed the current gender roles of the time and made women equal with men, this enraged the male population at first but over time this was seen as a better thing. With the inclusiveness of women in mens roles led to a larger army, and economy and Kimberlies reign is remember highly by historians as one of the most prosperous and greatest in Bretislavias history. Kimberlie ruled until 1602 when she died at the age of 77, after her death her son James was coronated as James I. James was a modest monarch and he favored the scientific community which was at the time a community of only 7 scholars. During his 24 year reign he built a observatory in the mountains of Bretislavia that still stands today. In 1626 when he died his son James II was only 10 years old and James I's second wife Jane ruled for him as a regent until he turned 17. From 1626 to 1700 James II ruled as a militaristic and iron fisted King. His "no-nonsense" regime saw the rise of a powerful Bretislavian military as a whole and the exspansionism of Bretislavia. With his death in 1600, Bretislavia had grown 5x in size. 4 days after his death his daughter Kimberlie was coronated as Kimberlie II. Kimberlie ruled from 1700 to 1732 and during her reign Bretislavia saw little to nothing happen. Her hedonistic reign led to little economic prosperity and it is regarded as "a boring spectacle on a grand stage". When she died at 82 her son Glenn was 40 and he was coronated as Glenn I. Glenn, much like his grandfather he was a militaristic man and he invaded many northern tribes and almost died fighting a certain tribe while leading a cavalry charge. While he did not die he lost his right arm, Glenn ruled from 1732 to 1767. His son Glenn II was 46 at the time of his death and took up the legacy his father had left. However, unlike his father he focused on the countrys youth with respect to the military, making many military schools, including the famous military wing of the University of Dutchberg and the Royal Military Acadamy. Glenn II died on June 2nd, 1800.

1800 - 1914

With the death of King Glenn II his son Edward took up the mantle of King Edward I at the age of 49. During his youth, Edward shunned the military much to his fathers dismay, instead of attending the Royal Military Academy he attended the business, political science, and medical wing schools in the University of Dutchberg. After becoming king he lowered military spending and increased the education spending, this displeased supporters of his fathers regime, as well as members of the military general staff. Glenn revamped the countries infrastructure, as well as its schools and hospitals. The penultimate of his modernization and reconstruction program was the reinforcing and repairs done to the observatory built by James I during his reign. After repairs had been completed on the observatory the building was dedicated as a museum to the early scholars of Bretislavia. Edward died in 1840 of pneumonia at the age of 89. His son Edward II took over for him at 39, and he, respecting his fathers work in the modernization of Bretislavia, continued the projects he had set forth. However, unlike his father he attended the Royal Military Academy and grew the navy and army's size back to its size before his father had taken over and began the modernization of its technology and ranks, switching the armys sidearm revolver from a single action to a double action, and the armys musket standard to a repeating action rifle. Edward II ruled until his death by stroke in 1882 at the age of 81. His son James, took over the family as James III at the age of 33 and he, like his father continued the modernization of the army, he introduced the new dark blue uniform to replace the red coat and black pants uniform of 1800. In 1914 James was 65, and, with the war raging against between Duby and Judea he set forth to command his forces from afar while his son Nicholas went overseas to fight in the Kings Royal Hussars.
