Request NPC: Bruxenburg


Recommended Posts

Hello all, long time no see. As you may or may not know I have taken a hiatus for the past couple of months to prepare for my exams, they are still ongoing but I am approaching the end now. I plan to return properly to Eurth as soon as I am able, and to kick things off I am planning a new RP. The RP in question, without revealing too much now, will revolve around the former Delamarian monarchy and a new npc called Bruxenburg. Bruxenburg is something I’ve been working on for quite a while, but I have recently been able to develop some new ideas in order to combine it with an engaging RP. 

The NPC is: The Kingdom of Bruxenburg

Location

Bruxenburg would border Delamaria and @DPR Velaheria, I chose not to include the island to the south as of now because I should like to use it for a future rp. Bruxenburg is located entirely within the Delamarian portion of the land between the East Argic countries, as divided previously and agreed to by all parties.

The blue represents its borders, and the yellow dot represents the capital, Leintwerp. 

(Should the name prove to long to fit comfortably on the map, I would be fine with it shortened to Brux or something along those lines)

History

Bruxenburg was initially settled and conquered by Dolchic peoples in the 9th century. The sparsely populated region would face a wave of Variot migration to the region in the 11th through to the 14th centuries, eventually forming the a new people out of the Dolch and Variot peoples, distinct to those in Dolchland proper and in Variota. Bruxenburg was largely made up of marches and minor states which came directly under the Emperor, however this changed in the 14th century when the Emperor sold off titles in the Brux region to raise money, this allowed wealthy Brux people to be considered on par with the ruling Dolch aristocracy. 

The Brux states remained neutral in most matters in the empire, only ever fighting in external conflicts, which often placed the Brux states on the frontlines. In the 17th century Lysia occupied much of the Brux region during its war with Dolchland, for the few years in which Lysia occupied some of the region many Lysian settlers arrived, many from Lysia and some from Lysian Columbia, to settle the sparse but fertile north. These people would come to form the Alzi people, as they morphed with the Variot-Dolchic culture of the region. In the 18th century Bruxenburg went through a golden age, becoming one of the wealthiest regions of Dolchland if not the Wurld, becoming a centre of arts, science and trade. This annoyed the Emperor in Schlammburg as the Brux traders who had grown so rich often avoided paying imperial tax, benefiting all of Bruxenburg but not the Emperor. This culminated in the Emperor seizing the Brux titles for himself to establish his power over the region. This led to many independence movements forming.

Bruxenburg gained independence from Dolchland through the Anglian and Labradorian backed Brux revolution in 1807. The Brux Republic was soon established after Dolchland recognised its independence, however its radically republican government angered Dolchland, as well as its former supporters in Labradoria, both monarchies at the time, and therefore in 1811 a swift intervention took place, similar to a foreign coup d'état, imposing a monarchy on Bruxenburg. George Odell was chosen because of his Dolch heritage and Labradorian upbringing. The Labradorian and Anglish influence on Bruxenburg remained throughout its history, and Anglish is a commonly spoken language and Brux culture is more alike that of Delamaria and Great Anglia than Dolchland.

Since the establishment of the monarchy Bruxenburg has remained neutral in most conflicts, which has become ever more important as tensions mount in the region and around the Wurld. 

Government

Bruxenburg is a semi-constitutional monarchy, the current monarch is Queen Cornelia II, and the current Prime Minister is Julius De Waal. The Prime Minister is an appointed position, but the monarch in modern times usually selects a member of the House of Lords with the most support.  The elected House of Commons rarely hosts a prime minister, but elected MPs make up much of the cabinet and a number of other important positions.
