The League of Gargano General Information

Post by Pickle on Sat Nov 13, 2010 1:18 pm

The League of Gargano is not one nation but a confederation of smaller states, united at the Gargano Treaty after the War of Adromidus, which began as soldiers from Calabria, the southernmost state in the League, drunk on wine, raided to temple of Cirtus in Adromidus, Manfredonia for Ivory and Gold on their return from war in Illyria. The Manfredonian rulers executed the perpetrators including the son of the leader of Calabria. Both sides called up their allies and war broke out, Manfredonia eventually gaining the upperhand. In the mountains of Gargano a peace treaty was signed formign the warring parties into one league to prevent such a terrible conflict again.

The league's capital is at Manfredonia and consists of seven seprate states, although they maintain commen policies in many fields.



Member states

1 (light Brown): Principality of Manfredonia
2. (yellow): Kingdom of Gerumum
3. (red): Luceria
4: (purple) Kingdom of Barium
5: (violet) Sarentum
6: (green) Kingdom of Siris
7: (blue) Calabria

The League's militairy is infantry heavy, using large numbers of heavily armed hoplites to bludgen the enemy into submission. There are few archers and skirmishers and even less cavalry used in a support/harassing role.

The league primarily exports wine, textiles and fine crafted goods, including ships and weaponary.

The league's population is estimated at 500,000, 10% of which are slaves

Not necessarily, Leccia, one of the states of my league was, however the rest weren't. There could still be a bit of bad blood there although Leccia is pretty much bottem of the heap in the league considering it lost the war with Manfredonia.

The faction seems a little farfetched, most of the cities you mentioned either didn't exist, were nothing more than towns, or had a different name. This is a great map for showing the Roman cities in the region.

I was just helping out. Very few people know much about this time period, and even I only really know about Rome & Greece. There is very little knowledge for us to base our nations on.
