A more detailed overview of Nhoor's history can be found here.

  • Before 200 BCE : Nhoor area inhabited by indigenous peoples Anura and Kinaera. The Raelosi Civilisation has some city states (most prominently Cas Pāla) and other strongholds in Nhoor.

  • 199 BCE : Kinaera tribes plunder and burn down Cas Pāla. Establishment of the First Kinaera Kingdom that encompassed most of the western peninsula of Raedlon.

  • ≈ 1 CE : Pact of the Five Sisters: the First Kinaera Kingdom is divided in five parts named after the daughters of the last ruler: Kova, Kira, Sain, Dhehari, and Anasi. (In present day Anasi, Dhehari, and northern Kira roughly make up Nhoor, while Kova, Sain, and southern Kira roughly make up Rashadah.)

  • ??? CE : Dhehari falls apart in smaller political entities, including the Second Kinaera Kingdom.

  • 900-1200 CE : before this moment, ethnic Nhoor had lived throughout Raedlon without a name of their own and dominated by the peoples of the realms in which they lived. Nhoor had the reputation of servants, slaves, and thieves. Attracted by the arrival of hinduism in western Raedlon around 900, many Nhoor started to move to the west, where they quickly became the dominant people.

  • 1102 CE : The non-hinduist King of the Second Kinaera Kingdom is toppled after issuing a decree to ban hinduism, and replaced by the ethnic Nhoor dynasty of Ocurhda. Under their leadership the Kingdom expanded to include much of the northern part of the western peninsula (roughly present-day Nhoor but without Chur and several smaller realms).

  • 1368 CE : Queen Narhato̦ is the last Queen of Kinaera. Without surviving children, she forged the Act of Transferral, which divided the kingdom in three parts, so called Archduchies, which were named Orleqh, Ta̦rleqh, and Camhɵrlanh. The Act of Transferral ensures a period of relative peace until 1587.

  • 1563 CE : As a result of marriage and fate, the Archducal family of Ta̦rleqh inherits the Archducal title of Camhɵrlanh; both Archduchies are united in personal union.

  • 1580 CE : Qhod-Uba rises to power as Archduke of Ta̦rleqh. He wages several wars against political opponents and other claimants of the Archducal title.

  • 1587 CE : Arrival of Numav the Explorer of the Hangate of Tachil (Razzgriz). After a state banquet on Numav’s ship there is a confusion about a potential theft and Archduke Qhod-Uba is murdered. Due to dubious legal issues, Numav ends up with the Archducal title and his men quickly take control of the Ta̦rleqh capital of Qhōmh and thereafter the rest of the Archduchy. The Hangate of Tachil send reinforcements and appoint Shukura Alahmoot as Barhèn to assume formal controle of Ta̦rleqh as the Hangate’s newest remote outpost.

  • 1608 CE : Barhèn K’avene Yilema reinstates the Archducal title of Ta̦rleqh for himself and assumes the local name I̦ldurud VI, founding the Archducal dynasty of Cenharruc.

  • 1633 CE : Archduke Lɵcmws III of Orleqh orders an attack on Ta̦rleqh. This resulted in the Six Year War that ended in victory for Ta̦rleqh. Archduke Osvīd I of Ta̦rleqh assumes the rule of Orleqh in personal union.

  • 1644 CE : Unification of the three Archduchies as the Dominion of Nhoor. Sārruc becomes the new capital.

  • 1650 CE : Annexation of Sīron-Onharh

  • 1655 CE : Annexation of U̦mhach

  • 1659 CE : Annexation of Pāla

  • 1683 CE : Annexation of Īnōsy

  • 1692-93 CE : Annexation of Chur

  • 1712 CE : Under regency of King Umhīla’s uncle by marrage Zajela, the Duke of Tojy, the Council of Nobles slowly starts to grab power as King Umhīla is too young to rule himself.

  • 1723 CE : Citizens disgruntled with nobility rule invade and ransack the government house. The troops of the Council of Nobles advance on the protesters, arrest the lot of them, and execute half of them for high treason. King Umhīla, now of age, was shocked however and had his uncle stripped of his title and privileges. The King and the Council remained opposed for the rest of the King’s rule.

  • 1741 CE : King Umhīla dies and leaves the throne to his 17-year old son King I̦ldurud (VII). The Council of Nobles sees their opportunity to once more take the lead in governing the country.

  • 1766 CE : At King I̦ldurud’s death, his 15-year old son Armhad II is proclaimed King, but I̦ldurud’s younger brother Urhod I successfully assumes regency and in 1767 takes the kingship away from his nephew. Tensions between Urhod I and the Council explode and the country succumbed into a short civil war, lost by Urhod I, who dies on the battlefield.

  • 1770 CE : King Armhad II reinstated, but he is just a puppet figure for the Council of Nobles.

  • 1792 CE : Feast of Amercement : King Urhod II (who ascended the throne three years earlier) invites all the nobles to a royal banquet as some sort of peace offering and a formal request to be included in state matters again. The Council of Nobles expectedly refused the King’s request to be included again but the banquet turned out to be a ruse by the King; the food was poisoned and the majority of nobles died. The King then hunted down the remaining members of the nobility and had them all executed. King Urhod II’s rule developed into one of strength and stability for the Dominion of Nhoor.

  • 1837 CE : The Ambassador of Almorea manages the less competent King Urhod III to agree on a dubious contract that would give Almorea certain trading advantages towards other countries and the right to establish strategic trading posts along the westcoast of Nhoor. Attempts to undo this contract failed. (Escalation of the dispute as part of the First Central Argus War?)

  • 1842 CE : Almorean influence in the occupied areas starts to wane, following a regime change in Almorea. Apart from the town of Caruqhur and the island of Īnōsy, the other territories fall in some kind of power vacuum until 1850 as King Urhod III kept hesitating to claim them back formally.

  • 1845 CE : Establishment of the national parliament as well as the creation of the post of First Minister following popular protests against the King’s eratic policies.

  • 1860 CE : Queen Umhīlī negotiates a deal with Almorea that saw the latter leasing Caruqhur and Īnōsy from Nhoor for a period of 123 years.

  • Early 20th century : Nhoor is required to assist in the Great Gael War due to its relation with the Oseamar Empire.

  • 1923 CE : The Severance Party obtains a majority in Parliament. They want to sever the relationship with the Oseamar Empire. King Urhod IV refuses. Stalemate between Parliament and King due to this conflict: no new policies can be made for several years.

  • 1930 CE : Night of the Knot: King Urhod IV orders the army to vacate parliament and forbids the Severance Party. Heavy protests by members and supporters of the Severance Party ensure and Sārruc becomes a battle zone. The King issues a statement but the situation in the capital remains tense throughout the ‘30s.

  • Mid 20th century : Nhoor is required to assist in the Imperial War due to its relation with the Oseamar Empire. The latter declares the state of emergency in Nhoor and used it to take over several key positions in Nhoor politics and in the military of Nhoor. After the war, the state of emergency is maintained, effectively imposing direct rule upon Nhoor.

  • 1955 CE : The (underground) Severance Party issues a proclamation calling the Oseans “enemies of Nhoor” and announcing military action to get them away.

  • 1956 CE : King Armhad IV’s chief of security K’aen Assi (the mightiest non-military Osean representative in Nhoor) is killed by a car bomb. Despite several arrests, the leadership of the Severance Party remains at large.

  • 1960s CE : The King enters in discussion with the Osean Empire and they agreed upon an independence referendum for Nhoor.

  • 1974 CE : The Puritan Society of Nhoor publishes their pseudo-religious manifesto proposing a new and pure way of life. They briefly became politically active in the early ‘80s but they fell apart in several smaller movements who can be found protesting outside e.g. abortion clinics, lewd bars, and cinemas showing films that they consider inappropriate.

  • 1978 CE : Change of the constitution, taking away political powers from the King and establishing a fully separated Trias Politica system with the parliament indirectly elected by the people through a bottum-up system, and a self-regulating government and judiciary.

  • 1983 CE : Return of the territories leased by Almorea in 1860.

  • 1996 CE : Nhoor joins the Four Passages Free Commerce and Travel Agreement (FCTA) as an associate member.

  • 2017 CE : King Armhad V dies without a successor; the throne becomes vacant with the Chairman of parliament assuming acting head of state duties. In 2019, Prince Maximus of Havalland, who is distantly related to the former ruling royal family of Nhoor, claims the throne.

  • 2019 CE : Nhoor’s government gets involved in a scandal after it emerges that the Defence minister was pressured to leak military secrets to an unknown organisation. Parliament issues binding advice on the removal of several government ministers.
