[[Image:Avarenlanden.jpg | thumb | 300px | right | Avaren]]
In 403 a.d. the unification of Avaren was a fact. The unification resulted in the merger of the former kingdoms in the new kingdom of Avaren.

==The situation before the Unification==
Before the unification of Avaren the region, now called Avaren, were 39 kingdoms. The kingdoms fought many wars with eachother, mostly to increase their territory's. Beside the kingdoms fought with eachother, they also fought with the [[Empire]]. The Empire was a big united front against the little kingdoms of Avaren. Mainly the border kingdoms had to stand against the big force of the Empire. This didn't go well. Around 390 a.d. 7 kingdoms were conquered by the Empire.
<p>However [[Icura]], [[Kojadish]], [[Thar]] and [[Aden]] gathered their army's at the borders and tried in any possible way to expel the Empire, it didn't work. By 400 a.d. the Empire had crossed the river [[Malon]] and invaded Kojadish. It wasn't long after when the Empire conquered Kojadish and the other kingdoms between the two rivers. Only the [[Berma]] stood between the Empire and the remaining kingdoms of Avaren. [[The Faith]] saw this danger and feared for the consequences. When the Empire crossed the Berma all kingdoms would fall in no time. The Faith himself would be destroyed, because the people of the Empire believed in other gods and weren't tolerant towards the gods of the Faith. The Faith therefore organized a meeting, which resulted in a combined army of the different kingdoms of Avaren. In a big battle the Empire was stopped to cross the Berma. This battle marked the end of the Empires expanses to the south and the west.</p>

==The Unification==
After the expelling of the Empires army, the many kings of the kingdoms met in a large meeting. The Faith presided the meeting. Soon turned out that many of the country's didn't want to unite. The 29 remaining kingdoms were to different. But the Faith wasn't giving up that easily. Over a few years many meetings occurred. At the end of the year 403 a.d. all of the kingdoms united. The reasons were different. Some of the country's only joined because of the threat of the Empire. Other country's eventually joined only because of the threat of the already joined country's.

==After the Unification==
The Unification made one kingdom out of the 29 remained kingdoms. The former kingdoms became county's and duchy's. A small struggle occurred when the duchy's were divided. Finally 8 duchy's were created. At the Unification the kingdom of [[Vyrahel]] decided to split up in two county's. Also the kingdom of Aden decided to split their land. The land was divided by war and the former king decided he couldn't rule a conquered region. Aden was splitted up in [[Havenaden]] and [[Ulvenaden]]. This way 21 county's were created. The dukes would command the army's of the county's in a big war. One king was chosen to lead all the county's. King [[Hirac Fedel]] of Maetranarch became the first king of Avaren. In battle he would form a council with the 8 dukes.
<p>One of the main goals after the Unification was to reconquir the lost kingdoms. This goal was named the [[Reconquista]]. King Hirac created [[the Eastern Borderguard]]. The Eastern Borderguard was mainly responsable for the Reconquista. Between 472 - 478 a.d. this resulted in the reconquiring of Ulvenaden, Kojadish, Icura and Thar. The last stronghold of Kojadish, castle Elaris fell in Spessa 478. This push that freed 4 provinces was followed by a standoff that lasts to this day.Feeling the Avarian threat, the Empire reenforced its borders greatly and it may take a while before another King of Avaren gathers an expedition army to break through the reenforcements in the east. Strategists speculate that, should an Avarian expedition army break through the border, conquering the seven last kingdoms and completing the Reconquista is a realistic outcome.</p>
<p> The reconquiring of Ulvenaden, Kojadish, Icura and Thar resulted in the creation of another 3 county's and one duchy. Thar became the new duchy, making a total of 9 duchy's in Avaren and a total of 24 county's.

Good job Lavinia,

This article made it very clear. And the length is perfect.

But their is something I miss in the article:

;)

First of all: the name of the First King of Avaren was Hirac Fedel. He and the current king, Toran Fedel (who is the Fourteenth King of Avaren) are the only named Kings of Avaren so far.

Now, there's something you have forgotten: the provinces that now form Avaren aren't all the old Avarian Kingdoms. There used to be more further to the east, almost as far as the bay. These kingdoms have all been conquered by the Empire one by one, and by the time the army gathered by the Faith was armed, ready and in position the Imperial expedition army had conquered the seven (I imagine there to be seven of them) nameless kingdoms and Icura, Kojadish, Thar and Ulvenaden. The Imperials were ultimately defeated by the river that flows through Firayla, marking the end of the Empire's expanses to the south and west (they still tried, though).

So at 403 a.d. there were only 27 kindoms that had united (counting Vyrahel instead of Miraley and Leros) under a single banner. Ever since the unification, one of the main ideals of Avaren has been to free the annexed kindoms from the Empire's grip. All the Avarian Kingdoms united, as the gods would want it. This ideal is called the Reconquista and the main concern of the Eastern Borderguard.
Thar, Ulvenaden, Kojadish and Icura have been reconquered rather recently. The last stronghold of Kojadish, castle Elaris, fell 54 years ago. This push that freed 4 provinces was followed by a standoff that lasts to this day. Feeling the Avarian threat, the Empire reenforced its borders greatly and it may take a while before another King of Avaren gathers an expedition army to break through the reenforcements in the east. Strategists speculate that, should an Avarian expedition army break through the border, conquering the seven last kingdoms and completing the Reconquista is a realistic outcome.

I know this isn't article-format and we didn't talk it over, but it's rather late and I just wanted to share my take on this.

I just have written the article, because it wasn't there and it needed to be there. But you are difficult to talk to these days..

Have changed it now. You can see the result in the first post and at the wiki.

I just read the improved article and think it fits Uly's comment.

Good work again Lav

"There used to be more further to the east, almost as far as the bay."
I think this hasn't been reflected very well on the map (which does look lovely, by the way). You placed a few to the east and more to the north. I'd like to stress that the land of the Great Valley is Imperial territory that has never been part of Avarian culture. If we place the 4 northern kingdoms to the east the problem fixes itself.
