Well, I put it off and put it off, but it needed doing and nobody else was going to do it. After sheer the hair-ripping difficulty I encountered in in assembling these facts, I think I can confidently say that Goldshire has the most gappy, sputtering and frustratingly untraceable history of any Imperial State. But it feels good to have it laid out into a single narrative, albeit in patchy form.

For the purposes of brevity I have limited the events depicted to wars, border/name changes, foundations of important institutions and other essentials. I've also blended the fictional and actual elements as coherently as possible. Discussion and/or correction of anything written here is welcomed.

The timeline is categorised by rulers. Behold!

Quote:

6566: In coordination with the Steward of Shireroth and the young Kaiser Ayreon IV, son of the late Queen Noor, Ryker Everstone takes the Throne of Goldshire and dissolves the Khan's executive, legislative, and judiciary power. Thus, the Throne holds the dominant role in government.

6568: Upon enacting a new Codex, King Ryker cedes the Emirate of Jadid Khaz Modan (the Yardistani Islands) to the Imperial Republic as a Dominion, redraws County borders to balance post war distribution of County resources, and creates the County of Elsyran by merging Elsenar, Syrelwynn, and Ran.

6661: In an effort to make up for a complete lack of natural borders which might stave off enemy invasion, a massive protective wall is ordered to be constructed along the entire eastern coast of Benacian Goldshire. This "East Wall" would be where a great majority of new recruits would be sent to work and receive basic combat training.

6696: On request of the MoMA, all Regulars drafted in 1655 AN are placed under direct command of the Ministry until a time that peace resumes.

Would my time as Steward not count due to its brevity?

Stewards wouldn't be notable at any length of tenure unless they did something remarkable, like start a war or revolutionise the workings of government or something.

Not that I know of, although it's highly likely Zary and Jadie would each have been Steward to the other's Ducal tenure even if it wasn't committed to record (it was a far less formal time, which is ironic considering those individuals are now married IRL).

Dukes Harvey, Yvain and Aryeztur had the 'Rishi' position, which was a sort of Chief Advisor concerned with cultural matters in the manner of the Grandsire of Aryasht.

Excellent work! I know from personal experience how difficult it can be to untangle the past in this country, but equally I can appreciate the peculiar difficulties that Goldshire faces in this regard. I have several times tried to sketch out a history of Vorpmadal, for example. :nuke: This is a real achievement.

Gods, good luck with that one :? I vaguely recall running Vorpmadal during its post-Kildari, pre-Yardistani days. Or was it the other way round? It was all so long ago.

*gets lost in the archives*

Well, I don't remember this happening... or that. Wow did I really say that? What an idiot...

Someone should update that "Bemangoed" part at the end to show that his reign ended.

Someone should, and someone has. More specifically I've moved the record of my Bemangoed period to the bylines.

I did some digging and the last time Dstryker was a confirmed member of the Landsraad as Duke of Goldshire was shortly after placing his vote for independence from Tymaria. His reign halted in 1075 ASC.

You also missed his successor, Duke SaiKar LumEth, who began in 1196 ASC and ended in 1229 ASC.

And Jadie took the throne in 1295 if you really want to be specific.

Also, on a fictional history note, the Old Goldendown civilization came into existence in -1047 ASC and vanished in 150 ASC after the Mortalis apotheosis virus wiped them out.

(I'm too bored) From what I read, Goldshire's merge with Brookshire into Goldenbrook happened in 3838 ASC. It happened a while back so I could be wrong.

How did you find... HOW DID YOU FIND THOSE DATES :book:

Impressive work, Milord. Feel free to adjust the timeline with any other nuggets you dig up.

A sad accident of a more desperate time. That it should be hailed as an ancient glory to reclaim, in the face of Goldshire's more recent restoration to life, is absolutely disgusting.

Gods be thanked that as long as there remains at least one voice for Goldshire, the relentless designs of the North will be kept in check.

Hah, those were the days... Goldshire shouldn't be worried. There was no Ric in Elwynn during thsoe expansionist policies, the Ric of that time, Daniel, was Duke of Brookshire.

In 2670, Kaiseress Carol I issued Imperial Decree 245 which reorganized the borders, reenacted the feudal system and gave Goldshire to Elwynn among other things.
In 3804, Vasroe abdicated his title of Ynnrali Baron by selling it to Leo for 2000 Erb.

This is the official age-system for Goldshirean history:


Before 3000 bASC: Elder Times

3000 - 2300 bASC: Blooded Age

2300 bASC - 500 ASC: Fenric Era

500 - 1300 ASC: Lost Age

1300 - 2000 ASC: Golden Age

2000 - 3800 ASC: Shrouded Era

3800 - 4675 ASC: Dark Age

4675 - 4850 ASC: Wythean Dynasty

4850 - 5050 ASC: Imperial Dynasty

5050 - 5450 ASC: Yastrebian Dynasty

5450 - 5750 ASC: Everstonian Dynasty

5750 - 5900 ASC: Draklandian Dynasty

5900 - 6025 ASC: Quiet Period

6025 - 6575 ASC: Sovereign Age

6575 ASC - present: Reconstruction Period


Less than 150 years is a Period, 150-475 is a Dynasty, 500-975 is an Age, 1000-2975 is an Era, and over 3000 qualifies as Times.

I would prefer the "Everstoned epoch" for your era!

I would have to create a Cheech-and-Chongesque pair of characters that reside in the Hamlet. :p
