Empire of the Seven Pointed Star
Empire of the Seven Pointed Star (908 BL - 230 BL)
Birth of the Empire
The Empire of the Seven Pointed Star was a single government for all the races and most of known Elanthian lands that reigned for nearly 700 years (908 BL - 230 BL). The Empire was made possible by the Chieftan of the Ram Clan, Akroeg the Ram, who conquered and united most of the known lands under the banner of the Ram Clan. After Akroeg's death, his son Verek became the Chieftan and turned the unity of the Ram Clan into the Seven Starred Empire. Verek became the Empire's first emperor.
Ferdahl Thaerine Plaintale entered the Elotheans into the Empire.
Capital, Throne City
For most of the Empire's existance its capital was Throne City, located in current-day Therengia on the Faldesu River north of Dirge.

Death of the Empire
In 280 BL a period known as the Kin Strife begins. The races begin fighting and unity begins dissolving. In 246 BL the last emperor, a Gor'Tog boy named Vithwok IV, takes the throne and is quickly usurped by his regent Selyan. Throne City is conquered by the armies of the Elven Lord Teiro in 239 BL. Lanival joins the fight in what becomes known as the Resistance War. When the war ends the lands of the Empire are divided into the Five Provinces we know today: Zoluren (tr: First Land), Therengia, Ilithi, Qi'Reshalia, and Forfedhdar. A short 30 years later the Dragon Priests, led by Dzree, will begin the Dragon Priest War and conquer the Five Provinces.
