In the beginning (House of Fergusson, 842-1005)Edit
- Main article: House of Fergusson
The written history of the United Commonwealth (UC) began in 842 AD when King Kenneth I of Fergusson founded the Kingdom of Galria, formally uniting the Kingdoms of Galloway and Cumbria (after the death of the King of Cumbria- Brian II) and establishing together a new capital- still known today as "Dumfries".
Between 842 and 1005, saw a changing UC with days of weakness and days of triumph. From 866 to 918 saw the UC fighting off Vikings, establishing alliances with nations that are now in the UC today. 945 till 1005 saw the threat of English Kingdom with its constant attacks on both UC nations and Scotland. However 950 saw a great triumph for the UC, with the successful liberation of Bernicia (then its own Kingdom, now Northumberland) and then in 955 a successful invasion of Ulster saw it come in to the UC temporarily.
In 1005, saw the end of the House of Fergusson, with King Michael II disowning himself from his family due to his cousin, who took the crown from him and nearly splitting the Kingdom. It was because of this he killed his cousin, got himself recrowned as King Michael Fergusson Elliot of Galria & Ulster and got the wheels really turning for forming the UC as we know it today.
