The Imperial University of Cygnia is the premier tertiary institution in Cygnia located in the imperial capital of Swanstone. Founded in 1793 as the University of Swanstone, it is Cygnia's oldest university and is regarded as one of the country's leading universities. It is consistently ranked among the top fifty universities in the world, and is particularly strong in the fields of Medicine, Law, Engineering, Business and Arts. Throughout its 323-year history, the Imperial University has undergone several name changes. The "Royal" appellation was granted to the university following King Alexander I's flight from Britain to Cygnia, and the institution was made Cygnia's national university after the establishment of the empire in 1812; at that time it was upgraded from a "Royal" to an "Imperial" university. During the Republic era the University was renamed Swanstone State University. Its name was reverted following the reestablishment of the Empire in 1946.
