Following the Siege of Val Tanza in Midfall of 641 5E and the subsequent Val Aregis - Val Tanza Alliance, the careful balance of power in Aregrionno now shifted in favor of Val Aregis.
Aregrionno has historically been a republic for centuries, with Val Aregis being a province that thrived on housing the Ordo Sacculis (Order of the Purse). Now, however, they were clearly after more power, proclaiming an Emperor had made a rightful claim of the 'throne' of Aregrionno.
Treaty of Aregis
On the 25th Springdawn, 642 5E, representatives of Val Luno, Val Ossus, and Val Frossa were invited to Unknown for what the Aregians hoped would be a successful unification of the entire nation. Val Luno responded with outrage to the suggested treaty, leaving the city shortly after. Val Frossa did not comply, yet did also not rebel, attempting and succeeding to stay neutral - for now. House Rubiano notably bend the knee, aligning Val Ossus with Val Aregis and Val Tanza, in what was now known as the Aregis Alliance.
Formation of an Army
On the 2nd of Midspring, 642 5E, the Ordo Gladio (Order of the Sword) was dissolved and reformed into the Royal Army of Aregis, with Delinda Santino being appointed its commander. On the 5th of Midspring, Vito Vitali and his Black Hand mercenary company aligned themselves with the Aregis Alliance. The reason for these quick reformations became clear soon after.
