Burgundian North Levantine Trading Company
Company Logo (1976)
|Founded||7 July 1579|
Following the Catholic victory in the Great Confessional War and flush with their new formal assimilation into the Imperial system the Burgundians looked to reestablish their maritime prowess. Kuhlfrosi and Kiravian merchants had no intention of letting the upstart duchy claim any of their hard earned maritime trade routes and refused to finance the trade expeditions. Instead Jarl I turned to the long time allies of the Burgundians, Kistan. Kistan supplied a large one time fee, but fearing reprisals from Kuhlfros declined any further aid. With this capital, Jarl I ordered the establishment of the Burgundian North Levantine Trading Company (BNLC) to bolster trade in Northern Levantia. The charter gave the company the power to control the trading interests of Burgundian merchants from "the borders of the Kingdoms Kuhlfros and Kistan, and to the ancestor lands (Helvianir)".
