The people of Connacht saw the biggest army they had ever seen off with wild enthusiasm, as it passed by. "There's no way they'll lose to Thracia," everyone said.
— Narration in Fall of Leonster

Connacht (Japanese: コノート Connote) is one of the four small kingdoms comprising the Munster District of Jugdral, situated in the District's north-east.

History

Along with the other three kingdoms of the Munster District—Leonster, Ulster and Munster—Connacht was originally part of the territory of Thracia, following its foundation by the Crusaders Dáinn and Njörun in Grann 648. Following the Tragedy of the Gáe Bolg, the Thracian throne was succeeded by Dáinn's son, a cruel and ill-tempered man who terrorized and suppressed the nation's people. In response, Njörun's son led a coalition of Thracian dukes in revolt against Dáinn's son, claiming the northern half of the peninsula as their own individual nations; with Grannvale's mediatory intervention and the eventual assent of Dáinn's son, the territory formally seceded from Thracia and became the independent Munster District, with Connacht being one of the four kingdoms founded there.[1]

Some time before the year Grann 760, the Connacht throne was assumed by the young and inexperienced King Carl, who overcame a power struggle against his uncle to claim rule of Connacht with the assistance of his advisor Raydrik.[2] All four parts of the Munster District kept a close military alliance with each other, so when Thracia launched a siege of Munster following Quan's death in the Aed Massacre, Connacht contributed its military to the effort to come to its aid, but a faction led by Raydrik betrayed both Connacht and the rest of the District at the Battle of River Thracia, leading to Raydrik himself killing Leonster's King Calf and leading Connacht soldiers loyal to him to assist Thracia in claiming the entire District. It wasn't long until the Grannvale Empire's army defeated Thracia and claimed the Munster District—and thus Connacht—as its territory, falling under the rule of King Bloom.

In the aftermath of the Battle of Belhalla, Brigid of Yngvi left her children, Febail and Patty, in an orphanage in Connacht before disappearing. In Grann 777, following his defeat at Ulster, Bloom retreated to Connacht and used it as his capital in his last stand against Seliph's army. After his second defeat, Seliph took control of Connacht, the third territory of the Munster District to return to his control. Connacht was later united with both Thracia and the rest of the Munster District into the New Kingdom of Thracia, under King Leif.

  1. "Afterwards, the one who would succeed the Thracian throne was Dáinn's son, but he wasn't the type of person who would make a good king. After ascending the throne, he implemented a terror policy, operated by his trusted subordinates, to suppress the masses. This resulted in Njörun's son leading the marquesses to rebel, and in the end they successfully subdued the northern, fertile lands. Later, by Grannvale's mediation, the small countries to the north pushed Leonster to become the leader of the alliance, and with Thracia's permission they officially obtained independence."Designers' notes from a Genealogy of the Holy War playing guide, translated by Serenes Forest, Retrieved: June 11, 2015
