The dynastic capital was Lile, except from 3238-3264.

History[edit | edit source]
The origins of the Calintropian Empire date back to the time of the Hott dynasty, a Cyrvian house, princes of Kalin, that will come to rule over the kingdom of Purpurian after The Cataclysm, at the 2707 a.a.H. Shortly afterwards, will be proclaimed at the 2713 a.a.H the Calintropian Empire of Purpurian, as Jakob I. Hott crowned himself with Imperial authority, claiming to be the rightful successor of the Holy Sargonic Empire.
The Empire will consolidate in the region -defeating their human and non-human foes- during the War of the Seven Realms, which would see the Empire become one of the great powers of Aels. Calintropia since then would play an important role in the Cyrvian and Motzabilian principalties: however, the power of the Calintropian Emperor was weakened by the clashes with the Tork Empire of Cretor, the Tsardom of Trutsia and Nordigen.
At the 3238, with the extinction of the male line of the Hott dynasty with the death of Santiago VII, brought to rule his cousin, Maurice I, ruler of Moritania, beginning the short but violent Maurician Wars (3238-3239), as the Moritanian wanted to reaffirm the Empire, violently repressing nationalisms, which sparked conflict with Ruhenia and the UPC.
As result of that war and following peace treaties, Östria was given independence from the Empire and was formed the Hidraulic Alliance, participating in the Tris-Tigris-Hidraulic War.
With the death of Emperor Maurice I the personal union of Calintropia and Moritania ended at the 3264, with the empire facing a quick collapse, with the independence of Polakia (3264), Tchivkarus (3266) and Hettrutsia (3269), which led to the final collapse of the Empire.
The Republic was proclaimed and after a referendum, Östria joined as a federal state Calintropia. (3273), which would become a member state of the MW.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
For long, the various Hott possessions never really formed a single country—each province was governed according to its own particular customs. Until the mid XXIX century, all of the provinces were not even necessarily ruled by the same person—junior members of the family often ruled portions of the Hereditary Lands as private domains. Serious attempts at centralization began under Santiago III and especially his son Santiago IV in the mid to late XXX century, but many of these were abandoned following large scale resistance to Santiago IV's more radical reform attempts, although a more cautious policy of centralization continued in the period that followed.
An even greater attempt at centralization began in in the aftermath of the Joaquintopian Wars following the suppression of the various national revolutions. For the first time, ministers tried to transform the monarchy into a centralized bureaucratic state ruled from Lile. Following the defeats in the Wars of the mid XXXI century, it was needed an agreement between the diverse imperial provinces.
The Calintropian Empire collapsed under the weight of the various unsolved ethnic problems that came to a head with the extinction of the Hott Dynasty and the late rule of Emperor Mauricio I, cousin of the deceased Hott Emperor.
