A Short History of Langobardia
The Langobards were a family of tribes which included some of the most violent members of the Kingdom of Prussia. Many of them were scattered throughout the forests and rarely entered the settlements made by the Romans. However, once the Cimbri began to interact with them and they began sharing their similar origins the Langobard family began to enter their occupiers cilivilization. At the time of the start of the Second War for the North the Lanogbards were easily able ot take the cities of their new Kingdom, especially Krakan (Krakow), which was the largest and would become the capital. Keeping any new troops from entering the main theater of the battle at the start of the cimbrian Allliance was a duty whcih the Langobard families took on proudly and with efficiency. Ther Langobard families, the Scirii, Thuringi, Gepides, Ingaevones, Greuthingi, Goths, and the Langobardi themselves, were all on rather good terms with each other during this time of crisis. However, one the dust began to settle and the need to establish a King needed to be addressed the true colors of the new nobility came to light.
The Scirii, Thuringi and Ingaevones were part of the group of tribes known as the Hundings, meaning hound-people. The Greuthingi, Gepids, Goths, and Langobardi were part of the Wulfings, meaning wolf people. The difference was minimal and in the interest of establishing a new kingdom they were able to put aside their differences. However the actual running of the Kingdom was a task which both sides believed was going to be left to them and excluded from the other. This division was threatening to tear apart the Kingdom and in the year 1224 (471 AD) the King of Cimbria, Æthelred, came in to settle the matter. Small skirmishes in this Kingdom may have erupted into a full blown war but they were thwarted by the High King of the Alliance upon his arrival. The First Council of Langobardia was made with the High King as its leader and the division of hte Duchies to each of the tribes and the division of the country to each of these two clans was decided in this meeting. Langobardia went from being the only Kingdom without a King and with a faltering government to being one of the most progressively ruled Kingdoms.
There would be two Kings of Langobardia and there would be seven Duchies, with the Langobardi having the capital city. The Hunding and Wulfing Kings and their adjoining Council of Dukes made theirs one of the wealthiest Kingdoms and the one wit some of the largest projects of development such as in the mining of resources and their processing. The First two Kings of Langobardia were Marik the Hunding and Ulryk the Wulfing.
