The Heyran Republic (H.R.), more widely known as the “Heyra” is the transformation of the former 2nd Heyran Republic into a completely liberal, open, meritocratic and minarchism government, through first an entity known as The Conglomerate, and now the 3rd Heyran Republic. Apprehensive of optimising the structure of the Republic, the decision to change to a more agile organisation for a better adaption in the daily operations issues, along governance changes, have been decided following a growing deficit, resulting in abandoning most of the governmental functions to focus on all aspects of security.

The Principality of Heyra (1104-1715)
The First Reign (Prince Souverain Charles I Grimaldi de Heyra, 1104-1130)
Founded in 1104 by the City Noble Master Charles Grimaldi through major internal disputes in the City of Heyra at this time, enthroned himself Prince Souverain, creating the Principality of Heyra with the benediction of the Pope, as local community was sacking the religious people along not respecting the Pope's authority due to major notable disputes between the major nobles of the city, making disappearing no real authority in order to ensure the safety of the Clergy nor the stability of the city more generally, it is through this situation that Charles Grimaldi got many supports for taking the total control of the City. Through his reign he ensured the peace of the Heyran peninsula, by occupying most of the land and ensuring that traders were paying taxes to his new Principality. A Feudal Monarchy to a tiny scale was in place, he also made the succession law being “primogéniture équitable” (one heir, the elder, no preference for the sex), and in order to ensure the respect he created in 1105 the Ordre Princier, or known as “Les Loyaux”. His reign ended in 1130, letting his elder child, his daughter Princesse Souveraine Marie I Grimaldi de Heyra ruling.
The First Woman Prince (Princesse Souveraine Marie I Grimaldi de Heyra, 1130-1136)
A rather unexpected Monarch in those medieval times, where women were generally relied as second rank being the men, but thanks to the preference her father had for her, he ensured equal succession, allowing her to take the throne, and becoming the first Princesse Souveraine along the second Monarch of the Principality. Her coronation is delayed of one year after her father's death, due to major discordes within the family, with her brother Charles contesting her the throne, which is also backed by the Pope and recognised as legitimate by most foreign monarchs and a part of the local nobles. After an intense year, Marie ensure the support of the local nobles to her succession rights, being considered as a fair and just Monarch, compared to his brother being corrupt and cruel. She is crowned in 1131, accessing to the throne, and wishing to establish a greater Principality, order the construction of La Cotière in 1134, in order to ensure the opening of the Principality to sea traders and to develop the Heyran economy, which at the time was starting to rely on silk along at 98% like most localities at the time, on agriculture. She marry a local noble, Pierre de Juste in 1136 through a cognatic marriage, later this same year, fearing of establishing a succession line by having her sister having an Heir, his brother Charles manage a plot to take power, which he took advantage of her friendship and care with most people/peasants to put on his side a few young revolting local nobles, managing to assassinate her during a walk within the City, her husband which is next to her isn't killed but injured, having tried to defend her, managing to still kill, with a few guards 3 of the aggressors, and capturing Charles. With Marie I dead, the throne de facto come to her brother Charles, in jail for her assassination. A few nobles decides to recognise the legitimacy to the Throne of Charles, and manage to make him escape the jail and the city, taking refuge into the Forêt Blanche. Most local nobles however and the City don't recognise his legitimacy.
A Deadly Reign (Prince Souverain Charles II Auguste Grimaldi de Heyra, 1136-1136)
Being crowned by the Pope while in exile in Vaguzia, Charles II manage to come back at the head of an army of mercenaries to reconquest the Principality, which have been ruled by Pierre de Juste, husband of Marie I. Having been defeated, Pierre de Juste retire to the Forêt Blanche where he meet a cousin of Charles II, Charles Grimaldi de Heyra (another Charles), cousin of 3rd degree of Charles II. This Charles, which is crowned as Charles III in order to respect the wish of the Pope, as Christianity and Clergy is heavily respected. Charles II, having conquered the City, find it devastated by the fight, with empty chests and an army of mercenaries to pay, quickly the situation degenerate, mercenaries finding out not being paid, the little number of faithful to Charles II flew with him out of the City, letting the City under the occupation of the mercenaries, destroying, raping, burning down, creating a real massacre in the City. Charles III advance in the direction of the City in order to take it back, with his loyal nobles having rallying him and Pierre de Juste, on the way he meet Charles II and his little number of troops. Immediately, a fight to death is engaged, in which Pierre de Juste lose his life... But the issue is no surprise, Charles II is executed in the field by Charles III himself and execute the traitors. In the end, Charles II would have reigned for 260 days, with only 9 days in the City.
Some Stability (Prince Souverain Charles III Louis Grimaldi de Heyra, 1136-1178)
With his troops, after having finally ended the life of Charles II on the field, Charles III must deal with the mercenaries which occupy the City. He certainly have an advantage, after a few weeks, they have lose their discipline, moral, organisation and probably willing to fight due to the many internal fights in the City, it is chaos. His troops are fresh, having known only a little fight and, as the entire army is local, have the determination to pull out the strangers out of the lands of the Principality. Strong of 217 mens, Charles III enjoy that the walls are broke to enter discreetly within the City at the aurores, as the night guard is weak, mercenaries are or sleeping, or drunk in taverns, the massacre is made in a few hours, building after building. After the deadly Heyran Civil War about Succession of, after all Charles I, Charles III take the head of a devastated City and land all around, with poor ressources, he decides to disband the ost (the army he had) in order to concentrate efforts towards reconstruction, the La Cotière, the fortress started by Marie I, having its construction suspended since a few months, isn't the priority, for Charles III, they need to go back to the lands, further in the lands, and start the construction of the Haut-Heyra, a total of two fortress separated by a river, with a long and revolutionary bridge for the time, heavily fortified, doubting again a war like what happened. The Haut-Heyra construction become his priority, relocalising most of the agriculture and fields around, the same as the tiny silk industry, with always this fear of conflict. He reduce the number of nobles and county, along having a rather simple and drastic way of living. Even if focusing on the Haut-Heyra, it doesn't prevent merchants from re-developping the Bas-Heyra, or simply Heyra, which was desolated.
In 1140, from the North, from which very little was known as Heyra throughout its history have always been open to the sea, arrived Paul The Explorer, King of East Moreland. Well-known for his travel, he passed through Heyra many times, never truly stopping there. It is only in the end of his reign that he decides to have a wander, meeting with Charles III, allowing the two unknown neighbours, separated by the heavy forest of Forêt Blanche to exchange some of their custodies.
In 1158, a greater harbour is built in order to better welcome merchant vessels, the same as better industry for silk is put in place next to the harbour and the unfinished La Cotière. His reign is known to be quite calm along a long period of stability, coming back to the level pre-succession war, he extinct in the Haut-Heyra in 1178 at 66 years old, reigned 48 years, a record for the time.
The Very Religious Monarch (Prince Souverain Philippe I Grimaldi de Heyra, 1178-1209)
The grandson of Charles III succeed to him, as Philippe I, he was known to be very much religious, so much that in fact he become the second Heyran Prince Souverain to be crowned by the Pope, the same as Charles II which wasn't voluntarily following the current situation at the time, this time, Philippe I making the displacement with no contestation. He showed little interest for the Bas-Heyra, preferring, like a monk stay in Haut-Heyra, supervising the end of the construction of the Haut-Heyra, and managing upgrades and extensions, but passing most of his time praying. He travelled many times during his life to see the Pope and regularly went in “exile” to pray with monks in the monastery. He had such a passion for the Christ, that following rumours and most stories he never had sexual relations, and renounced to the desire, explaining why he never married nor had lineage. He dies in 1209, without lineage, letting the son of his defunct brother access to the throne.
A First Overture (Prince Souverain Louis I Grimaldi de Heyra, 1209-1256)
Son of Haut-Prince Jacques, brother of Philippe I, he access to the throne at his death. Traditions were heavy after 31 years of rather heavy religious rule of Philippe I, and closed. By accessing to the throne, Louis I decides to move his apartments to Bas-Heyra, and focus on the finition of La Cotière, which were stop for about 73 years, started by Marie I, he seen the goal of ending the construction as him linking him directly to Marie I, and the founder of the Principality, Charles I. The Principality and the Monarchy have existed for only 105 years, making in Louis' mind the need to finalise its enlightment and supremacy over the land around. 6 years after the re-starting of the construction, in 1215, the Fortress is completed, allowing a strong presence of the Monarchy on the shore, and supervising in some kind the harbour, where trade have been heavily encouraged. Louis I liberalise the economy, pulling out the nobles from damaging the small industries of the time and traders, along pushing the construction of shipyards, the Heyran economy truly start taking form and a shape of commerce, relying heavily on oversea partners.
A Weak Reign (Prince Souverain Charles IV Grimaldi de Heyra, 1256-1264)
Charles, Louis I little brother, accede to the throne due to the death of the three Louis I child over the years. Being the latest child of the family, he was charged to serve the Clergy, an issue when it come to the fact that he became first on the succession line when the last remaining alive child of Louis I die in 1265, two years before his death. A religious zealous accessing to the throne question largely his abilities, adding to that his old age, and simplicity way of life compared to his elder brother, he decides to move the apartments to a monastery far away, leading his authority unfitted and the Principality without a real Monarchy leading it. He order to increase taxes, restrict trade, and is commonly unpopular adding to that its non-presence at all in day to day life of the Principality. Distensions start to happen, when the grand daughter of his uncle, her cousin Marie refuse to follow a law Charles IV wish to enforce, countering the rights of women along changing succession laws, promoting masculine heir. Due to the law of physic presence of Charles IV, Marie have no challenge rallying nobles to her rights, along vast majority of women, as there is a general feeling of incompetency and complete paranoia coming from Charles IV. In 1264, Marie at the head of a group of soldiers, and an escort of nobles and representatives of the localities and the City in order to request the abdication of Charles IV, a travel to where he retire is organised, and in front of the pressure and his old age, he accept the conditions and abdicate, while continuing to follow successions laws established by Charles I.

Marie II coronation, after 8 years of backwards and counter-liberal reign by Charles IV, is very much welcomed by the peasants, cutting Clergy taxes, by traders, letting free economy extend and nobles, allowing them more power and diminishing Clergy. Even if officially she is believer and have been crowned for giving counts to God, she privately and to her close circle, did not took gloves to show her many disagreement about religion, and finding how restricting it was for day to day life and to women. She take part a major reduction of the Clergy, which is still observable today, letting only 2 Church in the Principality, and restricting the construction, wishing the people to focus more on their observations and facts, not “imaginable things” like she liked to say report many writers of the time. She notably host many scientists of the time, being persecuted by the Church and the Clergy at the time for their revolutionary discoveries. She also call for expeditions and major discoveries, building some of the greatest ships at the time, discovering other continents and starting establishing trade representations around.

In opposite to her mother, Marie II, Jeanne I believe in God and firmly decides to follow the rule of limitation of 2 Church in the Principality, by destroying one, which created a major polemic, and a scission between Jeanne I and the Pope, an even greater then Marie II. The construction of a greater one does not help, as the evil have been done consider most Christians. L'Église Notre-Dame is ended in 1299, becoming one of the greatest Church of the continent, with its dedicated stained-glass windows showing Marie II life, discoveries, map and scientific advancement, certainly not dedicated to God, it amplify the fracture with the Pope. She also with the silk, consider herself as a model and create multiples fashion for the Court, launching new dresses and type of clothes, which spread throughout other Royal Courts.

The majority of the population seek their safe passage for the heaven through religion, but Louise remain stricts and apply the laws about the two Church limitation, which will cause her major disturbances with other parties, but it is with this spirit that she will try to educate him with those values.

However, this do not happen even with his strong faith in religion, he tries to establish strong return to religious laws, but is prevented by her mother Louise, like about the very controversial law on the two Church.

However, those new laying-outs and facilities are costly, and the chests are empty, which would effectively create a major crisis within the Principality, as Isabelle I is forced to increase taxes on the already tired population. At the end of the reign, the people have a mixed opinion about her, thanking her for her great changes fighting the plague, but concerned and weary of making efforts and paying such high taxes, leading to a few uprisings which Isabelle I will repress heavily. The crisis finally blow up by the demand of immediate funds by the creditors, forcing her to make a move or declare bankruptcy, she decides to size the money and reserve of the Clergy in order to save the Principality, a move which will be for long remembering by the Pope.

He decides to re-finance major expeditions in order to explore the Mundus, the same as financing a trading fleet and re-starting a flourishing silk industry, except with much less impact then the previous century, as the population have been drastically cut, for that he propose many foreigners to install in the Principality in exchange of tax exemptions while bringing their profession in order to allow the Principality to better come back and hold a strong economy quickly, a bet which work as the Principality dispose at the end of Charles VI's reign a varied economy, even if mainly based on agriculture and silk industry, but staying and counting on national production when coming to many other sectors, a rather impressive thing for a country of that size at this time. Charles VI dies in 1387, leaving behind a weak Heyra, less efficient then a century ago, but having healed its injuries.

Rainier I wasn't satisfied with such, and re-invested the budget towards great work of adjustments in order to develop agriculture and upgrade the archaic system, which Heyra was late compared to its neighour. This is when production of Bas-Armagnac, Wine, Cognac and other liqueurs exploded, the same as variety of plates, Rainier I being a fin-connaisseur, this needs also plenty of new words for such revolutionary meals, along translating foreign terms intervening into the French Language, pushing Rainier I to create the Académie de la Langue with its 25 Immortels to legislate about the language, orthography, grammar, vocabulary etc. Along enforcing the alignment of its statements for the entire language, this was known as a true revolution for the population, suppressing the local accents some localities may had at the time.

Supported by a Princely Power being more out of the day to day of the Heyrans, with major barrier on language, the Clergy seek new supports such as very much isolated nobles or low-status persons, such as peasants or poor traders. With muskets starting to appear, and most guards or military men able to defend the Prince, commissioned to explore the Mundus.

In that time, the Archevêque François hear the news of Louise I intentions, understanding that she had the ideal of coming back with her legacy, pulling out the Clergy for once and for all.

The Pope of the time, estimating the low legitimacy of Louise, being a woman re-inforcing his will, decides to send a force to crush what he call “a revolt against the rightful Heyran Monarch”. As the Papal Force started getting in the ships, the novel arrived to Louise, which managed to make the Papal Force believe that Heyra-Sud have been left un-protected and was the right place to land, taking immediately the city and allowing Louise I to not act. Louise I made everything so that the Archevêque wouldn't know how the Pope would reply, no communication at all was possible. Louise I having made follow the invasion fleet, reduced to the minimal the defense wall of the siege, putting all her forces in strategic positions in Bas-Heyra. As Louise I planned and plotted, the Papal Force secretly land in the harbour of Bas-Heyra, as around half of the forces were still in the boats, Louise I ordered the melee to start, with canons revealing themselves shooting massively at the boats, with the goal of blocking them in the harbour.

This is in those years that Louise II start passing legislation in order to protect the Princely Domain known as “L'Ouest Sauvage”, more then 90% of the total Heyran territory, the small town of Trivers built on the other side of the peninsula in that Princely Domain is moved, with hundreds of families being displaced and rebased in the conquered and inhabited island of Redfern (French : Île de la Fougère Rouge), with a tiny annexe, but most of the displaced persons moving to the city of Heyra, this will cause an harm a bit to her Majesty reputation, but ensuring the preservation of the forest as we today know it. In the end of her reign, she order the creation of an road towards the south of the peninsula leading to a small harbour, which have as purpose to link through regular vessels the island of Redfern to the continent, this road shall become the Great South Highway (French : Grande Autoroute du Sud). She extinct in 1630 in her new Château d'Autun, leaving behind her a well constituted Heyran culture.
Pursuing the Renaissance of Classicism (Princes Souverain Honoré II Grimaldi de Heyra, 1630-1715)
Honoré II, Louise II grand-son, arrived on the throne as new and charismatic monarch, renewing the Renaissance launched by Louise II, which over the year, being older and older, started creating a statu quo, with an heavy étiquette being apply to the entire population. First acts made by Honoré II were to unlock the étiquette and the heavy pressure the society had on the people. He also ordered the construction of the Petit and Grand Trianon in 1637, in order to serve as summer residence for the Princely Family, mostly out of the still present étiquette in order to allow a more private atmosphere, out of the city. Honoré II encouraged trade along pursuing pushing the traditional Heyran silk industry, and creating new ones, such as the stained-glass window/mirrors industry, statue creators and little paintings artists, even if those last had hard time exporting their œuvres. Honoré reign was known for his liberal policies, but mostly for ensuring the Princely Family privacy, and getting slowly throughout his reign, out of the political life of the Principality, giving many powers to the Council of the City and the Ministre d'État. He passed most of his time with his wife and their childs, along hunting in the Princely Territory, with heavy interestment for artists, such as the prodigious Lully in his time.
The Kingdom of Heyra-Bellefaye (1715-1809)
Ill Reign (Prince Souverain Georges I de Bellefaye, 1715-1729)
Enjoying of the lack of direct legitimate childs, the Grand Duc of Bellefaye has chosen to take advantage of the situation in order to push the people to take the Heyran throne and transfer it to his grand-child, Georges de Bellefaye, becoming Georges de Bellefaye, something which he got by negociating a matrimonial marriage with the cousin of the defunct Prince Souverain Honoré II, Héloïse Grimaldi de Heyra, with the heirs taking her name instead of her husband. This lead however to a short period of war with the brother of Héloïse Grimaldi de Heyra, Pierre Grimaldi de Heyra, which due to lack of support and his popularity not being strong among the people, lead to exile himself and his partisans, still claiming the throne. However the new Prince Souverain Georges I de Bellefaye, after his coronation was a poor leader, being indecisive and having a poor judgement, he was well-known for his inaction, with many of his previous supporters only two years after his coronation in 1717 lead to a conspiracy which was revealed. With the support of his grand-father, mainly financial and militarily, the Grand Duc of Bellefaye, Georges I crushed his opponents and opening really his reign by using fear as his spearhead.
Pierre Grimaldi de Heyra pursued from exile his will to rule over Heyra, trying to influence things from far away in the Principality, something which won't pass un-notice with Georges I deciding in 1721 to make everything he can in order to get Pierre Grimaldi de Heyra definitely out of the list of the pretenders. Something which would result, even if not fully certain, in the disappearance of the pretender in Vaguzia in 1723. His Reign was rather stable, stable through fear and with the support of his grand-father the Grand Duc of Bellefaye. However this support disappear as the Grand Duc dies, letting Georges I taking over Bellefaye too, and planning to divorce from Héloïse Grimaldi de Heyra in order to ensure himself a real Royal Family to rule over, the Kingdom of Heyra-Bellefaye -a Kingdom he projected to, and make himself King-. Discovering his plans, Héloïse Grimaldi de Heyra decides to take things in hand, and organise the murder of Georges I, giving him no time to execute his plans.
Union (Princesse Souveraine Héloïse I Grimaldi de Heyra et de Bellefaye, 1729-1795)
Taking over the Grand Duchy of Bellefaye while becoming Princesse Souveraine of Heyra, Héloïse I accomplish what no one could, uniting those two countries, separated by a tiny piece of land owned by the Kingdom of East Moreland. Just arrived to the two thrones, she order massive contracts between companies in the two countries, in order to push for an inclusive economy. After centuries playing little on the international game, Héloïse wished to show Heyra and Bellefaye, first of all together, but as a strong and independent union making regional decisions in terms of geopolitics, she enforced a common navy for both and in order to seal Heyran-Bellefaye union, had to find a foreign husband in order to seat her authority in ruling both. Her ascension wasn't much appreciated, by parties on both side, which lead to many assassinations attempts by the most fervent independentists and pretendants to the thrones throughout her reign.
In 1740, she engages Heyran Royal Navy in a commercial war against various traders from other nations as those were monopolising some harbours around the sea, most notably in Vaguzia, creating an escalation in the entire region and starting the First Mhorish Sea War against the Quywe Empire which was willing to defend its interests. Due to Heyran better knowledge in shipyard along smaller but easier to manage ships, the Heyran Royal Navy managed to maintain a high presence in the Mhorish Sea while harassing all passing trading enemies vessels, including Balticum ones. After 2 years since the start of the conflict openly, Balticum decides to officially take part in it, after having already sent privateers to prevent a major blow to Balticum maritime trade. Due to the northern Heyran border being closed by the The Kingdom of East Moreland, all confrontations will take place in the sea, between fleets and more often, simple vessels. A Quywen landing is tried to Redfern Island, which is successful, but when coming back to the vessels in order to invade the continent, a storm sweeps the Quywen fleet, creating a trouble in the Empire after such humiliating defeat by the nature. Eventually, after a few years of fighting, negotiations are started in 1746 in order to seal the War. Open harbour along defined free-taxes zones in each harbour are defined and announce the end of monopoles for any trading company which is a major victory for the developing Heyran trade as it's taking more and more influence within the region.
