About Karesi
Karesi (Karesios natively) is a language that found its place as a major language through fire, blood, and iron. The ancient Karesi started out in a minor city called Karynk (/kə˞rɪŋ̊k/), it only had a population of ~100,000 and was a very minor player in regional politics. This continued up until -133, when a man by the name of Jytru Aśrâ became Rexgros (basically a Roman Consul) of the city. He made 5 major reforms to the city that would allow it to become a much stronger power in the region. On top of these reforms, Jytru proved himself to be an excellent general and soldier. About a year into his term as Rexgros, a nearby city named Hendar declared war over disputes of land. Karynk won the war due to Jytru's excellent mind on the field of battle. Soon enough, people started calling for him to be king, which a king hadn't ruled over Karynk for centuries. Jytru resisted, but near to the end of his term (6 years), he accepted, and King Jytru I of House Aśrâ was the new leader of Karynk. He spent the next 15 years preparing the city for every disaster that could come. By the year -111, Karynk was the strongest power on the Ringos Peninsula. All of the other powers saw this rapid growth and unilaterally declared war. In a bloody, 12-year long war, Karynk turned up victorious, and soon found itself expanding to be a world power. In the year -87, Jytru died at the age of 63, leaving behind a Karynk that was much stronger than ever before. His predecessors would continue to expand his kingdom, and by the year 100, Karynk was nearly 70x its original size, and by 233, it reached its territorial extent, 200x its original size with 1.6 million people, spreading its language and culture to all the known world. In the year 476 however, it all collapsed, no one knows why, no one knows how, but its legacy lives on in the language and culture of the 15 countries that formed in its wake.
