The Kingdom of Coventrey was established after Afonso, Count of Coventry and High Steward of Coventrey, defeated the forces of PLACEHOLDER at the battle of Santiago on 19th June 1190 and established the House of Keita on the throne. Afonso declared himself king on that day, his descendants continue to rule Coventrey to this day. Afonso established his capital at Santo Domingo. The capital was not established at Williamsburg until 1306 where it remains.
The House of Keita died out in the male line in 1588 and the country was seized by COUNTRYNAME in connection with an ancient treaty that stipulated that if the line of Keita died out in the male line the kingdom would revert to COUNTRYNAME. For twenty years the people of Coventrey suffered under the over lordship of COUNTRYNAME until Guilherme Porter, a descendant in the female line declared himself king sparking the Coventrian Restoration War. Guilherme, Duke of Powhatan, known to history as Guilherme II staked his claims on the grounds of being the only legitimate descendant of the house of Keita albeit a female line. The clergy, nobility, and the populace rallied to the young mans cause and within months the country had ousted the foreign government, however war would exist between Coventrey and COUNTRYNAME until 1638 when peace was finally reached.
His wife Maria, Duchess of Porter, (herself a descendant of the imperial house of Salomon) when confronted with the possibility of losing everything by supporting her husband is said to have famously uttered the phrase: "It is better to be Queen for a day then to be duchess for a lifetime."
