EtymologyEdit

The city took its name after a fortress founded by Giuliano Barbato Romul, a great general of the southern kingdom of Fidelia and who is known for its great victories which blocked for decades the quanzarian to invade furthermore the peninsula.
The fortress was known as Fortezza di Romul but quickly was called La Romulana (The Romulan) and which in the years the little people of the city arised around the fortress started to call with the current name.
For century Romula was only an informal name given the fact that under the rule of the Quanzar Emirs was known with majatran name and only after an agreement with the Hosianist Patriarchy of Quanzar was ufficialized also the use of the istalian name.

HistoryEdit

Ancient HistoryEdit

Romula is the modern-day city occupying the sites of the ancient city of Qolshamih, according to the mythical tradition founded in 1832 BCE (we invite to go to the Qolshamih page for a more detailed history of the city during the ancient history). 

Medieval PeriodEdit

After it was definitively abandoned in the first century CE, the site fallen in ruin, used only as burial place for majatran leaders and it remained uninhabited until the appearance of the threat posed by the Ahmadi invasors: the southernmost of the three estalians kingdoms on the mainland, Fidelia, built in 1192 a fortress just outside the ancient site and then appeared a fortified city which took its name from the first Duke of the Duchy that arose around, Giuliano Barbato Romul, famous great general of the Kingdom of Fidelia. During the years of the clashes against the Ahmadi Caliphate, the city become a symbol of the resistence and was one of the last city to fall at the end of the ahmadi invasion. It become the most important istalian center on the continent given also the establishment of the local seat of the Holy Apostolic Hosian Church of Terra during the Ahmadite domination.
In the XVII century the Kings of Fidelia began large construction projects in Romula hoping to move here the Capital: in fact, Fidelia at the time reached to extend its influence on most part of the peninsula and its kings hoped to create an unified kingdom on the peninsula. However the arrive of the Quanzar invasor put an end to the dream.
d During the conquest of the Kingdom of Istalia (located on Alaria), Romula rise up against the quanzarian led by the local bishop but at least the fall of the Kingodom marked the end of the rebellion, hardly crushed by the Emirate. The Emirate impose to the Arci-bishop of Istalia, local representative of the Patriarch of Istalia and Solentia, which after the establishment of the Emirate on the peninsula escaped in Alaria, to return in Romula to be well controled and influenced by the Emirate. Later the quanzarian agreed with the Patriarchate to recognize to the Patriarch the religion authority also on the quanzarian hosianist increasing the importance of the city as hosianist and so istalian most important city.

Modern and recent historyEdit

After the fall of the Emirate caused by the revolution of 2110, the new state, the Union of Quanzari Soviets, decided to move the capital from the political center of the Emirate.
Romula was chosen because was the most powerful city of the ancient time and because represented as said the most important city of the peninsula. Romula become during the Republic the largest and most populed city and it has always been the seat of the highest istalians institutions.
