Jugdral

The Thracian Peninsula has two very distinct faces. [...] The south, however, is a barren wasteland lined with towering mountains, and home to the Thracia Kingdom and their infamous Dragon Knights. With reckless valor, Thracia made repeated attempts to conquer the northern fertile land.
— Opening of Chapter 8

Thracia (pronounced /ˈθɹeɪʃə/?[1]; Japanese: トラキア Thracia) is a nation occupying the southern half of the Thracian Peninsula of Jugdral, situated to the south of the Manster District and connected to Miletos by a thin strip of land to the north-west. It was originally jointly founded by siblings Dain and Noba of the Twelve Crusaders following the downfall of the Loptyr Empire, but a schism early in its history caused it to split into the two rival territories; its royal family is of Dain's lineage, and thus are the inheritors of his holy weapon, the Earth Lance Gungnir. The vast majority of Thracia's land is dominated by mountains and thus very little is arable and suited for farming, and so the nation has historically survived through hiring out its famed Wyvern Riders as mercenaries.

History

Thracia's landscape

Originally a single nation encompassing the entire Thracian Peninsula, Thracia was jointly founded by the Crusaders Dain and Noba, with Dain as its king after the downfall of the Loptyr Empire in Grann 648, and for a time the nation experienced peace. However, the nation was stricken by turmoil in Grann 658, ten years after foundation, after a series of tragedies starting with the Tragedy of the Gáe Bolg, in which Noba inadvertently killed her own husband while trying to prevent him and Dain from fighting, followed by Noba's suicide and Dain's own mysterious demise[2]. This tragedy left rule of Thracia in the hands of Dain's son, a cruel and ill-tempered man who terrorized and suppressed the nation's people. In response, Noba's son led a coalition of Thracian dukes in revolt against Dain's son, claiming the northern half of the peninsula as their own individual nations; with Grannvale's mediatory intervention and the eventual assent of Dain's son, the territory formally seceded from Thracia and became the independent Manster District, a collective of kingdoms led by the kingdom founded by Noba's son, Leonster[3].

For much of its subsequent history, Thracia vied to reclaim the northern half of the peninsula as its own, as it was severely crippled by its lack of access to the lush vegetation of the north; the Thracian territory possesses very little arable land of its own. Its primary means of survival was to hire its famous Dragon Knights out as mercenaries, funding its own survival by this meager pay. However, with Leonster's elite Lanze Ritter knight legion, Thracia was never able to make any significant progress in fighting the Manster District, and so the two nations remained in a stalemate for over a century. Thracia's fortunes at first appeared to turn in Grann 761, when the reigning King Travant brutally killed Leonster's Prince Quan and the Lanze Ritter in an ambush which came to be known as the Yied Massacre, and subsequently assisted in the downfall of the Manster District in cooperation with Raydrik of Conote; however, this was short-lived as Raydrik in turn betrayed Travant to the newly-minted Grannvale Empire, which subdued the Thracian army, claimed the Manster District as its own under Bloom of Freege, and cowed Travant into an unwilling and unequal alliance with Grannvale.

Thracia remained a servant state to Grannvale until Grann 777, in which Seliph Baldos Chalphy led his revolution army against Grannvale through the Manster District, liberating it and uniting with his cousin Leif, orphaned prince of Leonster. With the Grannvale occupation defeated, Travant sought to take the opportunity to strike at Seliph's tired army and reclaim the Manster District for himself, but instead entered a protracted battle with Seliph as he sought to invade and subdue Thracia; during this time, Leif was reunited with Altena, his elder sister who had been taken by Travant following his murder of her parents and raised as his own daughter. The conflict ended with Thracia in Seliph's control and Travant dead; however, his son Areone survived the battle, taken away by Grannvale's Prince Julius to ensure his survival. Under Areone, Thracia initially remained opposed to Seliph after he withdrew from the nation to march on Miletos and Grannvale; however, Altena convinced Areone to stand down and ally with Seliph instead. Following Seliph's victory against Julius at Belhalla, Thracia and the Manster District were reunited into a single nation by Leif, Altena and Areone, forming the New Kingdom of Thracia with Leif as its king.

Notable locations in Thracia

Thracia Castle

Thracia Castle is the capital of Thracia, situated in its far south-east, and is the seat of power from which the royal family rules.

Meace Castle

Meace Castle is the northernmost castle of Thracia, located near its border with the Manster District. It served as the first line of defense against Seliph's pending invasion, under General Maykov, and subsequently served as Seliph's base in his foray into the rest of Thracia.

Kapathogia Castle

Kapathogia Castle is located roughly in Thracia's center. It was entrusted to General Hannibal during the battle against Seliph's army.

Luthecia Castle

Luthecia Castle is the eastermost castle of Thracia, near its border with Miletos and the Manster District. It was placed under the guard of Distler, a general and advisor to Travant, during Seliph's invasion.

Grutia Castle

Grutia Castle is the southernmost castle of Thracia, and the southernmost known settlement in the entirety of Jugdral. It was entrusted to Judah of the Loptyr Sect as the last line of defense against Seliph before he reached the capital.

Fiana

Main article: Fiana

Fiana is a small coastal village situated in Thracia's east. Formerly overrun by bandits, it was cleaned up by the mercenary Eyvel, who subsequently became the village's head and the leader of the Fiana Freeblades, a mercenary team dedicated to the defense of Fiana and its neighbors.

Iss

Iss is a coastal Thracian village, and the northern neighbor of Fiana. It was the site of Leif's first skirmish on his way to Manster to rescue Nanna and Mareeta, and was where he met the tactician August.

Mt. Violdrake

  2. "A: Noba married a knight who was friends with her brother Dain and lived a happy life with him. One day, her husband and King Dain fought each other over some dispute. Noba tried to stop the two fighting, but accidentally killed her beloved husband (the weapon that took his life was her lance). That was the beginning of events, Later, Noba committed suicide and King Dain died a mysterious death. Afterwards, within the Leonster Royal Family the legend was passed on that "the Earth Lance and Heaven Lance call to each other" and "the Earth Lance is a lance that causes love and sorrow"." - Designers' notes from a Genealogy of the Holy War playing guide, as translated by Serenes Forest
  3. "Afterwards, the one who would succeed the Thracian throne was Dain'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 Noba's son leading the marquesses to rebel, and in the end they successfully subdued the northern, fertile lands. Later, by Grandbell'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, as translated by Serenes Forest
