HISTORY:

 

First settlers: Circa 700 BF: 

The first known Tupmonians are known to have settled in modern-day Tupmonia around 2100 years ago. It’s not entirely clear where these settlers came from, but most sources imply that they came from a region south of Tupmonia. They called themselves the Tupans, and they are the first known men to follow Jonism. 

 

The Golban Clans: As the Tupans expanded farther north they eventually encountered the Golban Clans. The Tupans and Golban Clans attempted peace at first, but after disagreements about the division of land, it sparked several small skirmishes called the Hill Wars (around 510 BF). After a few months of fighting the Clans came out victorious, pushing the Tupans back south. 

 

The Tupan War and Establishment: 330 BF- 227 BF: 

As the population grew the Tupans attempted a second expansion into Golban territory, thus leading to another war with the clans known as the Tupan War (327-303). The war lasted for 24 years, but the Tupans came out victorious thanks to the decisive Battle of Progh, led by Ronor Lonebar. The Golban Clans were pushed northwest and most of their land was taken.

 

After the war, the Tupans decided to establish themselves as a newly built kingdom. Ronor Lonebar was crowned king for his leadership in the Tupan War. He built a formidable city called Lonebar City. A feudalistic society was adopted. Lords and knights were established over time, most of them being rich farmers, merchants, or war heroes. 


 

Expansion Era: 230 BF- 186 AF:

After Lonebar City was established, many newly appointed lords had lands granted to them to hold and manage. Over the next few centuries, castles, villages, mines, farms, and roads were built across Tupmonia, along with another city called Greenworth.

 

Jonism became much more prevalent in Tupmonian society as well. Many Jonals (temples of worship) were built across Tupmonia. The Bymons (priests) and the king at the time (King Gabriel the Holy) established a relationship between the crown and jonal in 57 BF. However, the Jonal held little power politically. 

 

Although this era mostly saw peace, there were a few rebellions. In 27 AF a small peasant rebellion was launched in a small region in the south because of unfair tax rates and poor treatment by Lord Plow, but it was quickly crushed after a failed attempt to overtake Lord Plow's keep. In 94 AF 2 of the 9 Golban clans decided to revolt because their lands were being used by Tupmonian farmers. The lords of the north and the two clans warred for a few months, but the clans didn’t have the numbers to resist the Tupmonians. 

 

The expansion finally saw a steady decline at around 180 AF. The crown had a tough time affording further expansion, and Tupmonia’s economic power slightly fell. 

 

Tykes Rebellion: 186 AF- 211 AF:

Tykes Rebellion is known to be one of the most pivotal points in Tupmonian history. It saw Lord Tyke, Lord Fenn, and several other lords rebel against the crown after Lord Tykes’ daughter, Sandra Tyke, was kidnapped, raped, and later killed by the king. Several of Lord Tykes’ men and one of his knights were killed trying to protect/save his daughter. Rilwon Fenn, heir to Lord Fenn, the king’s squire, and Sandra Tykes betrothed was also murdered by the king’s men amongst the fighting.

 

Most Lords throughout Tupmonia stayed loyal to the king out of fear and/or knowing the rebellion was a losing cause. With the rebellion heavily outnumbered, Lord Tyke attempted to ally with the Golban Clans. In return for their men and supplies, the clans would receive better weaponry, horses, gold, and they would receive some land back after the war was won. Five of the remaining eight clans agreed. Although the clans added a significant number of men to the rebellion, they were still outnumbered 2 to 1.

The Golbans used guerilla warfare tactics, while Lord Tyke used the main force of his men to besiege enemy strongholds.

 

War raged on for 25 years, but it saw the rebellion victorious. The death count of the war tallied up to around 90,000 total. House Lonebar was overthrown, and House Tyke took control of the crown. Some of the most notable turning points of the war were: The Battle of Horseshoe Road, The Greenworth Siege, The Battle of Silent Swords, and The Fall of Lonebar City. 

 

The Reconstruction Era: 211 AF- 302 AF:

After Lord Tyke took control of the crown he denounced House Lonebar of its lands and titles, executed the lords who remained loyal to the Lonebars, pardoned the lords who recognized his victory, and granted lordships and knighthood to men who had big parts in the rebellion. Lord Fenn and Lord Cobb were turned into great lords for their significance in the war, and the Golban Clans received the lands they were promised. However, the kingdom was in disarray. Lonebar City was in ruins, Greenworth sacked, and villages burned. Famines plagued Tupmonia for a year, and it resulted in at least 25,000 deaths.

 

Lonebar loyalists remained after the war and used the chaos to their advantage. They claimed that House Tyke was to blame for killing the people, and many didn’t like that their land was being given to the Golban Clans. The loyalists formed a small army and called themselves The Kingsmen. They didn't recognize House Tyke as the new royal family. They terrorized newly claimed Golban lands and attacked Tupmonian villages However, they didn't become a major problem until later on. 

 

It took nearly a century to rebuild Tupmonia back to what it was. When the Reconstruction Era came to an end Tupmonia was split into three different provinces: The East, The West, and The South.  The city of Magnolia was built (the capital of Tupmonia) in The East, and it was named the new royal seat. Greenworth and The South were given to Lord Fenn to govern under the crown. Finally, Lonebar City (renamed Warrington after the rebellion) and The West were given to Lord Cobb to govern under the crown.

 

The War of the Three Kings: 305 AF- 308 AF:

As the Reconstruction Era came to an end The Kingsmen had gathered near 3,000 fighting men and the support of most of the people that were moved off the land that was given to the Golbans. Instead of waging war on the Tupmonians (knowing they had nowhere near the numbers and supplies needed for even a chance of victory), the loyalist group decided to wage war against the much less equipped Golban Clans. They planned to take over the Golban lands and form a separate kingdom. The Kingsmen were led by Rob Lonebar, the great-grandson of the last Lonebar king. The king of Tupmonia didn’t intervene. He decided to let them fight it out and would sweep up whatever remained of the Kingsmen. 

 

The Golban Clans and The Kingsmen warred for around two and a half years. No side held an upper hand, but both sides were weakening fast. In June of 308 AF, King Noah Tyke sent 7,000 men to meet the remaining Kingsmen in the field. The Kingsmen were destroyed within an hour (This battle is known as Lonebars Last Stand). Rob Lonebar was captured and executed two months later. This ended military opposition against the new monarch for centuries to come. 

 

The Prosper Era: 310 AF- 1048 AF:

When the Reconstruction Era came to an end, the economy saw a steady rise due to plentiful harvests and successful trade across Tupmonia. The population grew exponentially as well, thus leading to improved and more frequent infrastructure. 

The near 900 years of growth cemented Tupmonia as an agricultural-driven country. Tupmonia also expanded their trade in this era. Fhaengshia and Tupmonia signed a deal in 1043 (shortly after Giovanniland withdrew from Fhaengshia) that allowed trade between the two nations (the nations traded before but under heavy tolls). The trade deal also allowed Tupmonia to use Fhaengshias ports in return for a percentage of the profits. The deal opened up trade to other nations across the world and it also improved foreign relations. 

 

Viggo’s Conquest: 564 AF- 577 AF: 

Although Tupmonia thrived during this era, the Golbans saw more war. Tykes Rebellion, Lonebars Last Stand, and the famines following the wars crippled the Golban population. Only four of the original twelve clans remained when the Prosper Era began. 

The Loshad clan held 40% of the Golban territory, while the other three clans shared the remaining 60%. The disagreement of land distribution and division of necessities became a big issue amongst the Golbans and created a lot of tension between the clans. Most of the blame was pointed towards the Loshad Clan because of their wealth and holdings. Many accused the Loshads of being Tupmonian loyalists because of their lasting friendship with the Tupmonians after Tykes Rebellion. 

 

In 564 Viggo Otamar, the leader of the Loshad Clan declared war on the three other Golban Clans. Viggo’s clan outnumbered the other three clans combined (10,000 to 8,500). The clans warred for 17 years (with no Tupmonian interference) and Viggo came out victorious after the only clan remaining surrendered. The Loshad clan now held 85% of Golban territory and the Svitoy Clan held the remaining land. Viggo is now known as one of the greatest warriors and generals in Golban history. 

 

The End of Feudalism: 1048 AF-1060 AF: 

With trade expanding, many towns and cities grew in population as a result. This led to feudal lords holding less power, while the king and the people gained more power. The feudal system quickly became inefficient. Lords attempted to keep their peasants on their manors and lands, this eventually led to several peasant revolts (1049-1058) around the kingdom, most of them being successful. Feudalism was fully abolished in 1060 AF. 

 

The Modern Age: 1060 AF- Present

With Feudalism abolished, Tupmonia was now transitioning into a capitalist society. Many Lords lost their power and titles, which led to castles and strongholds being abandoned across Tupmonia. However, lords and knights still existed in society. Many were given military tasks, became politicians, or given local governance authority (but with much less power than before). On the other hand, many smaller knights and lords kept their titles, but they didn’t hold much power at all. 

 

In 1181 the People's Choice Act was established after a long and strong push for reform. It made changes to the electoral system in Tupmonia. The Tupmonian Legislature was formed as a result, it allowed eligible citizens to vote for people to represent them. Most of the people in the legislature were lords and knights, but that slowly changed over time. Although the legislature had some power, most of their power was for appearance to make it seem like the people had more representation, when in reality most of the power was still held by the king and wardens. 

 

A major change also came in the Golban Tupmonian relations. In 1247 Golbans were offered Tupmonian citizenship and were given the right to run and vote for positions in government. Most Golbans agreed and a new city was built in Golban territory called Viggo. However there were some that disagreed and formed their own clan and called themselves The Ancient Ones (or Drevniy in Ancient Golban. This clan is still around today and they live in the northern Tupmonian countryside. 

 

Along with Magnolia, Greenworth, Warrington, and now Viggo a couple more cities were built. Joland (also known as the Holy City) was fully built in Southwest Tupmonia in the year 1285. And Fennview was built in Southeast Tupmonia and completed in the year 1312. An intricate road system was built to connect the cities making transportation a lot easier. 

 

The modern history of Tupmonia was mostly peaceful, besides some conflict with The Ancient Ones. Tupmonia is now known as a nation with a rich history and is still developing to greatness today.

Government:

Tupmonia is run through an Absolute monarchy system. The Royal House of Tyke has ruled Tupmonia for just over 1,200 years. The current ruler is King Joseph VII, and his queen is Lyanna Reed. He has ruled Tupmonia since 1403. 

 

The Great Houses- Tupmonia is split into 3 different provinces, each governed by a different great house. The South is governed by House Fenn. The current warden of The South is Rory Fenn II. He has governed The South since 1407. The West is governed by House Cobb. The current warden of The West is William Cobb. He has governed The West since 1377. Finally, The East is controlled by the royal house of Tyke. Although House Tyke rules all three provinces, their prime focus is pointed to the East.

 

The Council- Each great house has its own council of 5 people. The types of people can range anywhere from a random civilian to a lord. The council of each great house is chosen by the ruler of each great house. There are 3 requirements to qualify for a council spot: Over the age of 25, Tupmonian citizenship for at least 20 years, and residency in your province for at least 10 years. 

The Council serves as a cabinet of advisors to their warden/king on major issues across their lands. In 1322 a law was passed that any king/warden that came into power under the age of 20 must follow the majority vote of their council whether or not they agree with the ruling, thus putting younger and less experienced kings/wardens in check. 

 

Tupmonian Legislature-

The Tupmonian Legislature is made up of 52 legislators. 2 from each of the 26 counties in Tupmonia. They are voted in by the people every 3 years (one term). Every legislator can serve a max 3 terms. The qualifications for a spot on the legislature include: Over the age of 25, Tupmonian citizenship for at least 15 years, and residency in your county for at least 7 years.

Chapter 1: Wars and Major Battles Throughout Tupmonian History

 

The Hill Wars - 510 BF: 

                                               Tupans: 15,000- 20,000 men                                               

 Golban Clans: 55,000 men 

The Hill Wars were a series of battles between the newly settled Tupans and the already established Golban Clans. The war was started because of an attempted expansion of Tupan lands into Golban territory. After failed negotiations between the clans and the Tupans, both parties declared war on each other. It’s not completely clear how long the war lasted, but most sources agree that it lasted around eight months. 

 

The Ferme Raids:

The Tupans began to raid the Ferme Clans’ territory, killing and burning as they went. Dozens of Ferme civilians were killed savagely in the raiding. 

 

Battle of Retreat: 

Tupans (Battle Commander - Lytos): 2,000 

Ferme Clan (Battle Commander - Fendo): 200

Tupan general, Lytos, sends a small group of around 100 men to attack a Ferme Clansmen camp of around 200 fighters, and to make it seem like they’re retreating. When the group of 100 Tupans reached the camp they fought and when they retreated the Ferme Clansmen were in hot pursuit. The Tupans led the pursuing clansmen into a trap where Lytos and 1,900 of his men demolished the Ferme force. This battle allowed the Tupans to take Ferme territory with little military opposition.

Tupan Casualties: 80

Ferme Casualties: 190 (Fendo was killed in battle)

 

Kimol’s Stand:

Tupans (Battle Commander - Lytos): 3,000

Loshad Clan (Battle Commander - Kimol): 2,000

With raiding in eastern Golbania and battling all over the central hills, High King Svilano of the Golban Clans sent Kimol and 2,000 of his Loshad Clansmen to halt the raiding and to take back Ferme lands from Lytos and his men. When Kimol arrived in Ferme land they were ambushed by Lytos, who saw them coming. Kimol suffered major losses and was sent running. Lytos was on his tail and Kimol and his remaining 500 men were forced to stand and fight against the 2,800 incoming Tupans (Many believe Kimol had far more men to withstand the Tupans, and that the records were exaggerated to make Kimols victory look greater than it was). The Loshad clansmen held their ground for hours and pushed back Lytos and his army. Despite winning the battle the Golbans took similar losses to the Tupans. 

Tupan Casualties: 2,100

Loshad Casualties: 1,800

 

Battle of Yika Valley: 

Tupans (Battle Commander - Rymar): ~11,000 

Golban Clans (Battle Commander - High King Svilano): 35,000

After about six months of fighting along the central hills, the Tupans finally split the Golban force and advanced into the heart of Golbania with around 11,000 men. Their advancement was halted by a major Golban army of 35,000 men, led by the Golban king himself. The two forces battled for nearly a whole day, but the Tupans simply didn’t have the numbers to combat the Golban force. The Tupans were pushed back south, Rymar was slain in battle, and the Tupans lost most of their men. This battle devastated the Tupan army and it was what ended the Hill Wars. It is known as one of the bloodiest battles in Tupmonias history. 

Tupan Casualties: ~9,000 (General Rymar was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: ~4,000

 

War Turnout: 

Fighting continued to rage on in Ferme lands for a couple more months, but Lytos held the territory well. Both parties agreed to peace in late November of 510 BF with the First Border Treaty. The Tupans now held Ferme territory, and gave up the rest of what they took. On the other hand, the Ferme Clan was completely destroyed. 

Tupan Total Casualties: ~13,500 soldiers + 50-100 civilians 

Golban Clans Total Casualties: ~8,000 soldiers + ~500 civilians

Total Casualties: ~22,000

The Tupan War: 327 BF- 303 BF

 

Tupans: 28,000 men 

Golban Clans: 48,000 men 

The Tupan War is what turned the Tupan settlers into a full fledged kingdom. With the Tupan population rapidly increasing, the Tupans looked to further expand their territory into Golban lands for a second time. The Golbans refused negotiations, which led to the Tupans declaring war on the clans, despite their inferior numbers. The Tupan War is the second longest war in Tupmonian history, lasting 24 years. It is also known as the second bloodiest war in Tupmonian history. Ronor Lonebar led the smaller Tupmonian army to victory which won him his crown after the war.

327 BF- The Tupans began the war by spreading raiders out to the weaker military clans to spread out the Golban army. 

Battle of Strish- 326 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Berengar Otto): 400 

Zivoti and Stroyel clans (Battle Commanders - Anze and Tijmen): 300 

Local Zivoti and Stroyel clansmen send 300 men to retaliate against Tupan raiders in the west. The Tupan raiders were caught by surprise, but were able to hold their ground against the two clans. The small Zivoti army was obliterated. On the other hand, many of the Stroyel clansmen were able to escape back into their territory. Even though this battle doesn't seem so significant, it ultimately allowed the Tupans to easily take Zivoti lands. 

Tupan Casualties: 115

Zivoti and Stroyel Casualties: 150 (Anze was killed in battle)

 

Red River Battles- 321 BF- 305 BF

The Red River Battles were a series of battles over the span of 16 years. The Golbans looked to cross the river that separated Golbania from Tupan territories. Their plan was to conquer Tupan lands and crush their inferior army by taking them head on. The Golbans sent several groups of men (spanning from a few hundred to as much as 16,000) to cross the river at different points and to meet at a certain point at the other side of the river. Ronor Lonebar led the main force against the Golban crossers. He and his 8,000 men encamped along the river and held off thousands of Golbans for years. He unleashed arrows on the incoming Goban ships, and when they would reach land he would push them back. Over the years his numbers slowly dwindled and he couldn't hold the river at every point, this led to more and more Golbans being able to cross easily. These battles are where Ronor gained his fame, and where the river got the name “The Red River.”  

Tupan Casualties: ~6,000

Golban Casualties: ~11,000

 

Zivoti Massacres: 325 BF- 323 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Berengar Otto): 800

Zivoti Warriors: 30

After the Battle of Strish, Berengar Otto received reinforcements and advanced into Zivoti territory. With the Zivoti army destroyed, Bernegar quickly advanced into Zivoti lands, burning, killing, and looting as he went. He destroyed the little opposition that he received, and according to accounts he murdered hundreds to thousands of Zivoti civilians. This led to the end of the Zivoti Clan and the Tupan occupation of Zivoti territory.

Tupan Casualties: ~20

Zivoti Casualties: 500- 2,000 civilians 

 

Battle of Sandfront: 315 BF

Tupans: 10,000 (led by Henry Osbert) + 2,000 reinforcements (led by Ronor Lonebar)

Golban Clans: 15,000 (led by Ennio Chidek)

By 315 BF about 15,000 Golbans successfully crossed the river (Mostly Yika and Mech clansmen). Their goal was to capture a Tupan stronghold far south, but they were met by 10,000 Tupans who were sent to halt their advance. The two sides battled, but after some time it was clear that the Golbans held the upper hand. When the battle seemed lost Ronor and 2,000 of his river defenders took the Golban army in the rear and gave the Tupans a chance at victory. Days prior to the battle, Ronor got word that 15,000 Golbans were advancing on the southern stronghold, and that Henry Osbert and 10,000 men were going to cease their advance. Ronors orders were to remain at the river. However, Ronor gathered 2,000 men and advanced south, while he left another 2,500 men to hold the river. Even though the Tupans ended up losing the battle the Golbans lost more men than the Tupans did. The Golbans continued south to take the stronghold. 

Tupan Casualties: 8,000

Golban Casualties: 9,000


 

Battle of Green Valley: 310 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Berengar Otto): 1,200

Stroyel and Kapio Clansmen: 1,000

After securing Zevoti territory, Berengar Otto and his party were ordered to take Stroyel land next. The Stroyel army was weak with only around 100-200 men. Berengar started raiding lands to draw out the remaining clansmen, but instead of being met by 200 men, Berengar was met by 1,000 men. 800 Kapio men were sent to help the Stroyel clan in case Berengar came to take it, and he did. The two armies fought in a valley near a village. Bernagar almost lost the battle due to him underestimating the enemy, but his men were able to pull through victorious. Many say if Berengar lost this battle, it would’ve led to the Golbans retaking their lands and the Tupans losing the war, with Berengar holding the Stroyel and Zevoti lands it made movement of the Golban armies much harder. This victory nearly destroyed Berengar's army, but his remaining men were able to take the rest of Stroyel territory. 

Tupan Casualties: 900

Stroyel and Kapio Casualties: 980

 

Battle of Hindston: 307 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Joseth Arozen): 7,000

Golban Clansmen (Battle Commander - Ennio Chidek): 10,000

The Golbans were still crossing the Red River and joining the Golban host that was advancing through Tupan territory. Ennio’s force from the Battle of Sandfront was reinforcing as they went and pursued Tupan scouts. Joseth Arozen received reports that the Golban army only consisted of 5,000 men. When Joseth heard the reports he gathered 7,000 men and fell upon the Golban army. It turns out the Golban army consisted of double the men than they thought. The Tupan army was crushed and Arozen and his remaining men retreated. The Golbans took minimal damage and continued their advance. 

Tupan Casualties: 5,500

Golban Casualties: 1,700 

 

Battle of Rivercross: 305 BF 

Tupans (Battle Commander - Sava Vayne): 1,400

Golban Clansmen (Battle Commander - Yamuna Reba): 16,000

This battle is known to be the last of the Red River Battles. The Tupan river defenders were weakening quickly and were now led by Sava Vayne because Ronor Lonebar and his men remained in the south. The Golbans sent 16,000 men to cross the river to join Ennios' army in Tupan lands. Sava and his 1,400 men knew they would lose, but before they did they attempted to inflict as much damage as possible. The Tupan river defenders unleashed thousands of arrows on the incoming ships. Tupan defenses like spikes and deep mud holes slowed down the Golbans when they eventually reached land. Savas' army was eventually overrun and his men were slaughtered. Sava was killed in battle. Savas son, David Vayne took control of the retreat and headed south to join the rest of the Tupan army. The Golban army successfully crossed the river… but not so easily. 

Tupan Casualties: 900 (Sava Vayne was killed in battle)

Golban Casualties: 3,000

 

Battle of Progh: 304 BF

Tupans (Battle Commander - Ronor Lonebar): 5,800

Golban Clans (Battle Commander - Ennio Chidek): 22,000

At this point in the war the Golbans seemed to have already won. Ennios' army took most of Tupan lands and won two major battles against the Tupans. The Golban army was also reinforced with another 13,000 men from the Battle of Riverfront. The Tupan army remained in their southwest stronghold with around 5,800 men, all from different armies: Henry Osbert had 3,000 men after his loss at the Battle of Sandfront, while Ronor Lonebar had 1,000 men remaining after that battle. Joseth Arozens army of 7,000 men was now an army of 1,300, and David Vayne had 500 survivors with him from the Battle of Riverfront. Berengar Otto remained in the lands that he took from the Golbans with his 200 men, fighting off small bands of Golban raiders, it was clear that he didn't have the strength to hold the land much longer. 

The war seemed lost and all the Golban host had to do was take the last Tupan stronghold and then advance north to retake the lands from Berengar. 

Ronor led the final defense against the Golban army. His plan was to split up the 500 men under David Vayne into small bands of men. They were ordered to hit weak points of the incoming army and to weaken it as much as possible with small and quick raids. Ronor ordered Joseth Arozen to remain in the high walled stronghold with 300 men and to abandon the army camps outside of the walls to make it look like the main Tupan force moved when they saw the incoming army. After the Golbans would lay siege, Ronor and his 5,000 men would take the Golban army unaware. When the battle would commence David Vayne and his men were ordered to cut down anyone who tried to flee. Just in case the battle didn’t go their way, Joseth Arozen was ordered to stay in the stronghold and hold it if Ronors army was unsuccessful. 

David Vayne and his men killed or scattered nearly 2,000 Golbans through dozens of small attacks to the Golban army's rear, while only losing about 80 men of his own. When the Golbans finally reached the gates with 20,000 men they found the walls poorly manned and the camps abandoned. Ennio assumed the Tupan host retreated and laid siege to the stronghold. Joseth Arozen and his men put down heavy arrow fire, while Ronor and his army remained hidden not too far away. After about a few hours of siege Ronor Lonebar led his men to take on the Golban army. Even though the Tupans were outnumbered 4 to 1 the element of surprise gave them a winning chance. Many of the Golbans scattered in confusion and before Ennio could gather his men in formation it was too late. The Golban army retreated back west, but they were pursued by David Vaynes' men and many more Golbans were cut down. Ennio died of arrow wounds during the retreat. The battle forced the Golbans back into their lands and ultimately won the war for the Tupans. 

Tupan Casualties: 3,800

Golban Casualties: 17,000 (Ennio and Yamuna were killed in battle)

 

War Turnout: 

After the Battle of Progh, Ronor Lonebar pushed the Golbans back north. Even though the Golbans still outnumbered the Tupans 2 to 1, their losses were far more significant than the Tupans. The High King of the Golbans, and Ronor of the Tupans declared for peace in late 304 BF with the Second Border Treaty. The Tupans now had full control over Zivoti and Stroyel territory, with those two clans being destroyed in the war. This war led to the full establishment of Tupmonia and Ronor Lonebar was crowned king. 

Total Tupan Casualties: ~25,300 soldiers + ~1,000-7,000 civilians

Tupmonia Wiki: Chapter 1, Part 3

 

Plows’ Peasant Revolt: 27 AF

House Plow: 2,000

Vs

Peasantry of House Plow

 

Plows’ Peasant Revolt is known to be the first major revolt in Tupmonia. The revolt resulted in the victory of Lord Plow, but major reforms were brought after the revolt – changing the way Tupmonia ran. 

 

The Manor Fires: March 25, 27 AF

In mid January of 27 AF tensions began to rise between Lord Plow and his peasants because of poor treatment and unfair tax rates from Lord Plow. After about a month of pleading for change and continued poor treatment by Lord Plow, 100’s of peasants rose in arms against their lord. Lockwills Manor was burned down where one of Lord Plows' knights (Ser Mark Lifder) was killed in the fire along with a few of Lord Plows' men. 

 

The Mob Attacks: April 3, 27 AF

After the fires, Lord Plow sent 100 of his men to keep the peace among the peasants. When Plows’ men reached the village they were savagely attacked by hundreds of peasants. Violent fighting ensued throughout the village, but the 100 soldiers were not enough. It’s estimated that nearly 130 civilians were killed and 93 of Lord Plows’ men were killed as well. 

 

Grove Hall Massacre: April 18, 27 AF

At this point the peasants gathered near 700 people willing to fight Lord Plow. The leader of the revolt, Jon Rolfe gathered everyone he could and met outside Lord Plow's keep – demanding him to come out. After about an hour Lord Plow ordered his men to open fire on the peasants. This led to some peasants running, while others decided to try to overtake the keep. Hundreds died trying to climb the walls. The few that got over were instantly cut down. Jon Rolfe was killed amongst the fighting. This slaughter put an end to the revolt. Lord Plow was heavily fined by the king for his actions and new tax reforms were put into place.
