Writters Notes, History of portugal Edit
It's not easy to compare real life Portugal with Cyber Nations Portugal. Taking roots in so many different areas and regions, Portugal is a puzzle of influences, timelines, and people. Geographicly in CN, Portugal is only but a small point in Iberia, although the Portugal I want and I RP takes most of Europe and Nort Africa, taking it's way in the Roman Empire. It's origins are, of course, from RL Portugal, although you could consider it's begining during the Lusitania Era, under the Roman influence.
First Era Edit
Portugal is a remnant from the Roman Empire, taking a different route from reality, it was created when The Roman Republic fell, when the Barbarians invaded and when chaos ruled the world. Under the lead of a group of rich traders, Iberia Proclamed independance, and was created under the name of the Republic of Lusitania. The Republic lasted for 900 years, wile the rest of Europe was in war, Lusitania resisted. Christianity never took place, and war pretty much stopped Islam from being born. During the 200 years war, between the New German Empire and the United Federation of Italy. Lusitania, under the control of President Marius, gathered an army, and invaded Gaul, that was at the time controlled by the German Empire. After a series of 50 years of fights, Lusitania, with a much better economy, punched trough the German Lines, and was declared as the Lusitanian Empire, stretching from Olissipo (Lisbon) to Deutchbourg (Berlin). After just 16 years of power, Lusitania fell under many invasions and rebellions, forcing the empire to split. But this split wasn't peacfull, as the Germans wanted revenge. Calling to them a line of knights, the Deutscher Orden (German Order, or Teutonic Kngihts) to help them. After many fights and battles, Lusitania fell, being the last battle of the war the siege of Olissipo , wich utterly destroyed the city.
German Rule Edit
Under this new rule, Lusitania was transformed into anarchy, wars ravaged the land, wile the Teutonic Knights, defenders of Iberia, did nohting. This time was known as the First Night, and the time of the First Dinasty. Near the Gregorian Year (note that I am only using the Gregorian Calendar to facilitate timeline location) of 1341, Barbarians invaded the Peninsula and clamed it as their new home. This was the begining of the Second Dinasty (or the Barbarian Dinasty.
