Entomology

WIP The name Kuhlfrosia comes originally as a collision of the names of two distinct cultures within it's territory, originally the Frusci and Kuhlci (also known as Valli) which described the two cultures, the former (the Frusci) were named as those whom lived in waste land where Latin explorers first encountered the people, the Kuhlci or Valli on the other hand were named from their location, living in the valley and lowlands between the two mountainous regions of Kuhlfros

The term United Grand Republic of Kuhlfros or Grand Republic came about in an anonymous essay written 1810 in the Alpsend Journal, the author, while unknown, was a republican spokes person whom had written multiple essays in the past advocating for a republic and end of the monarchy in Kuhlfros.


History

Early History

In the prehistoric period and into the bronze and early iron age, the regions of Kuhlfros were mostly settled by a diaspora of insular proto-celts and into more developed gaelic celt tribes. While the tribes were many with their own way of being identified, the Kuhlfrosian gaelic tribes were generally called the Froscii by the Adonerii that would eventually create Great Levantia.


Great Levantia

The Adonerii eventually spread their control across the Levantian continent through conquest and assimilation. The Levantine Potentate reached into much of the region that would become Kuhlfrosia, then called Gaul and Ultmar, the region beyond Levantine control, which was seperated from the Great Levantian territory by a series of forts and walls to protect from Gaelic raiders which were not brought into submission. However in the fourth century AD, Gothic migrations led to clashes in the Gaul (Kuhlfrosian region) and eventually the settlement of the Gothic-Germanic tribes in western Gaul (Kuhlfros). This accompanied with a demographic explosion of Gaelic and Gothic in the late 4th century and into the fifth century led to the collapse of Levantine rule over Kuhlfros as raids frequently led to conquest of territories once held by the empire.

Age of Blood

Much of the second half of the fifth century to the mid 8th century was centered around Gotic and Gaelic petty kingdoms and tribes fighting for land and dominance in the “Gaulic” region. Some Gothic tribes began moving to the northwestern coasts and building ships to sail around Levantia to raid, establishing what was called the “Reaver Kingdoms” which would last until the 10th century. Meanwhile much of mainland of the Kuhlfrosian region, both Goths and Gaels were subjugated by the Kingdom of Gallawa forming the Holy Levantine Empire.

The Early Levantine Empire

The majority of what would be Kuhlfros remained largely tribal and frontier land for the new Levantine Empire however, this first empire collapse in 917 leading to the coronation of King Culmann of the Eastern Levantine Kingdom. Most of the Kuhlfrosian region was ruled by either the Eastern and Western Levantine Kingdoms but was still largely frontier lands of tribal vassals, however under King Culmann, the first landed feudal lords were established in Kuhlfrosian territory along the Latin border as marches to help defend from his brothers and rogue tribes.

In 960, King Leo of East Levantia conquered the Southern Kingdom and made advances into controlling the collapsed Western kingdom. In 972, King Leo was crowned Holy Levantine Emperor, restoring the Empire and saw a massive growth in feudal institutions and adoption of Kuhlfrosian lands into the HLE yoke. However, the Leonine dynasty would not last and the fall of the dynasty led to a civil war followed by the establishment of the Electoral College.

The Levantian Age

As Levantia entered the 11th century, Kuhlfrosia was largely brought under control and feudalized by the marcher lords of the Latin-Kuhlfrosian border. The Captain of North was created by the Holy Levantine Emperor to losely control the tribes and lords of Gaul (Kuhlfros) The Establishment of the Captaincy of the North occurs only three years after the fall of the Reaver Kingdoms. Soon the Captaincy moves its seat to a natural harbor where the national hero and at the time beatified Bridget ‘the Renegade’ to become Saint Bridget had died, establishing Bridget’s Haven, or Bridehavn. However the fall of the dynasty which held the Captaincy in 1076 led to the Holy Levantine Empire declaring the area of Gaul the Kingdom of Culmannia, or Culfra. The feudalized clans of Gothic and Gaelic descent were reorganized and given stem duchies to make up the new kingdom. However, the new Culfran lords chafed under the far-off rule of the Holy Levantine Empire and movements for a King of Culfra began, culminating in the rebellion against Emperor Carles II. Due to the recently formed Apostolic Kingdom of Urcea, joining in support of the Emperor the rebellion failed, some lands were siezed and punishments were made, however Bridehavn became a new Electoral Seat at the same time.

While Culfra was under the yoke of the Emperor, it was oft a difficult realm to control with conflicts between princes of the Empire amongst the divided duchies and counties of the kingdom, rebellions, and conflicts with the Slavs. Throughout the period, Culfran Princes met at the city of Bridehavn annually in an event called the Altyn. As time went into the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Lands began to centralize to several major dynasties however the competing powers were soon submitting to the Raeic dynasty which had inherited the Electoral seat of Bridehavn.

Raeic Kingdom of Culfra and the Raeic (Northern) Renaissance

The dynasty of Mac Rae von Riata inherited the electoral seat of Bridehavn in 1438 and through apt marriages and inheritance, political maneuvers and strategic military subjugations of Culfran princes came to dominate the Culfran region. However it wasn’t until a war spanning the continent did the Kingdom of Culfra finally become united. The Great Confessional War saw several princes and territories convert to Protestantism. The following wars, called the Culfran Wars for the Cross, a part of the Great Confessional War saw vicious fighting across Culfra, and the eventual victory of the Holy League and the Mac Rae von Riata’s of Bridehavn.

During the finals years of the conflict a vicious strategy called Dragonnades was practiced in Kuhlfros, uprooting defeated Protestant lords and peoples, demanding their conversion to Catholiscm or banishment, something practiced widely through Levantia in the aftermath.

As a reward for the efforts of the dominant Princedom of Bridehavn, the Emperor of Levantia granted the title sought for by Culfran lords for centuries, the Kingdom of Culfra. All remaining princes of the Culfra were urged to submit to the rule of the King of Culfra.

With Raeic authority across Culfra, Dragonnades were ordered to stop to help bring peace to the troubled land and unite the Culfran peoples, Gael or Goth, Catholic or Protestant and while most Protestant nobility had been ousted, a new policy based on the teachings of (TBA Ixrasumus) and humanism. With these teachings the Raetic Kingdom of Culfra began to major proponents of the Catholic Counter-Reformation. Protestants and Protestant exiles were welcomed into Kuhlfros and through a process modern scholars call Adaptivism, were slowly and mostly returned back into Communion with the Catholic Church. Leaving a lasting impact of few Protestants in Kuhlfrosia to this day.

Wildlife

Kuhlfros can be divided into two ecoregions: The Northwest Oceanic Shelf marine mixed forest-montane, The North Levantian montaine mixed forests. As of 2025, the majority of Kuhlfros is covered by either arable land (32.13%) or forests and woodlands (35.61%); only 11.3% consists of permanent pastures, 13.6% is covered by settlements and streets.

Plants and animals include those generally common to central and northern Levantia. Beeches, oaks, hickory and other deciduous trees constitute one third of forests in Kuhlfros; conifers are increasing as a result of reforestation. Spruce and fir trees predominate in the upper mountains, while pine and birch are found in sandy soil. There are many species of ferns, flowers, fungi, and mosses.

Legislative: The Unicameral Congress, known as the CulfraTyn or the National Assembly WIP Both regional and provincial governments are structured in a similar fashion as to maintain uniformity and the voice of the people in the Republic. However as the cultures of the nation have become mixed and are no longer in separate areas the regional governments have slowly become redundant and defunct of it's original purpose of representing the needs of the multiple different culture groups in the nation.

The Constitution in it's final form establishes the structure and responsibility of the federal government and it's relationship with it's regions and provinces. The Constitution has been amended 23 times since it's ratification and it's first ten called the Macrae Rights which form the central basis of Kuhlfrosian individual rights.
