"The ruined city of Dracoheim has been undergoing significant rebuilding and investigation since the project first began many years ago under my father, acting as king of Ziegeland, initiated the excavations. A special team from Empire Library oversees this massive, decades-long project. After digging through several strata, getting to the most ancient times of the city, archaeologists continue to find very sophisticated pottery and other technology inconsistent with the levels of the surrounding contemporary tribes such as the Andi and yes, the Mehl. The mainstream historical narrative of Mehl superiority has begun to crumble with each new discovery. Now, thanks to Shirerithian imperial genealogists, a plausible link has been theorized between Flaventian Dracoheim and So-Saran Dracoheim. Many historians now explain the high level of Flaventian Dracoheim as being derived from the much more ancient So-Sarans. The deep and ancient connection between Natopia and Shireroth is now celebrated in the kaisership of Her Niftiness, Kizzy.
The tyranny of the Mehl in our culture and historical narrative must end. The injustices they have committed against their neighbors, the Draconians, must be recognized. It is a stain on Natopia's history that the Draconians feel forced to flee that they scatter themselves. Sometimes they flourish in their new homes, as Kizzy did when she moved to Goldshire. Kizzy and I have maintained private correspondence since her elevation to the Golden Mango Throne and I believe that a lasting and eternal gesture from Natopia to Shireroth will help future generations understand the connection our nations share. Therefore, as a gift from me to the people of Shireroth, I do hereby create the ceremonial County of Dracoheim within the Duchy of Haven and name Kaiseress Kizzy as the first Countess of Dracoheim. To ensure the warm relationship between Shireroth and Natopia is remembered by posterity, the County of Dracoheim will therefore be tied to the office of Kaiser.
There was a time when it was considered 'tradition' to leave Dracoheim ruined. To leave it as a reminder of Mehl supremacy and a monument to Nett Opaegh's invasion of Yellow Island. We can no longer afford to view our history with such narrow vision. The Natopian Nation is only successful when it acknowledges and embraces its own diversity. By granting this eternal gift to the Kaiseress and her successors, it it my sincere wish that the friendship between Shireroth and Natopia will endure as a reminder to us to honor our unique tapestry of cultures and people."
Naian stepped aside from the podium and presented Kizzy with the formal document of her new countship:
Kizzy curtsied to Naian, who returned the honor with a deep bow before the two grasped hands and posed for pictures.
