Kalikhan, officially the Grand Realm of Kalikhan was a federal state led by a constitutional monarchy, located on the western coast of Kuthara. At its greatest extent, it ruled a quarter of the continent, and its capital, Kalikhan, was a major port and trade center in the region.


The first documented records of Kalikhan are of a small fishing village on the shore of Lake Bryłka, dating to late March of 1 AC. The village slowly grew to become a small town by the following year. Not long after its establishment, Kalikhan became part of the Triumvirate of Ceyreto. By 3 AC, Kalikhan started to experience rapid growth in population and size, nearly quadrupling its population within that year.

Winogradoff dynasty

The house of Winogradoff originates from Ruskar Winogradoff, who had rule of a former kingdom before Kalikhan was founded. Ruskar, although born into common folk, rose to become an important military figure, which enabled him to marry into royalty. Multiple generations of rulers passed before the founding of Kalikhan.

Kalikhan's first king, Varban Winogradoff, ruled from the establishment of the throne until his assassination in May 10, 3 AC, which led to Kalikhan pulling out from the Zydel-Ceyreto conflict and the Triumvirate as a whole. Next in the line of succession was Varban's eldest son Konstantyn, who was coronated on June 2, 4 AC.

Not long after his coronation, during the Salt Flats troubles, Konstantyn was ambushed during his return to the city. His guards were killed and the king himself taken prisoner by Konstantyn's brother, Roman Winogradoff, who had returned to Kalikhan to contest the throne after their father's passing. At the time, the public was unaware of Konstantyn's situation, and the official state announcements declared Konstantyn missing; Roman used this as an opportunity to justify his rule, claiming that he had voluntarily given up the throne and left the realm.

Roman's authoritative leadership was not taken well by the public. Unrest emerged in many parts of the country, most noticeably in the capital itself. When a leak informed the public that Konstantyn was held captive, large crowds started gathering outside Kalikhan's castle demanding his release. Roman declared a trial for Konstantyn's fate to be held the following day, but with no intention of giving up the throne.

On August 2, 6 AC, a trial by combat was held in Kalikhan's main square, with selected combatants representing either side. The warrior fighting on behalf of Roman was Jon Dodbane, king of Guldhir, standing against Ahkim, a warrior from Aelfscyn. Following a short battle, Roman was declared victorious and Konstantyn sentenced to execution.

Democratic movement

Konstantyn's execution saw an immediate increase in civil protests. The evening of the execution, in the same square where it had taken place, Frederik van Eske gave his "Address to the People" in support for an elected monarchy.

In a private meeting between one of Konstantyn's closest advisors, Bogdanocoz, and the honorary princess of Kalikhan, Crin Päevaliljy, it was decided that if Crin were to stand to become Kalikhan's first elected monarch, she would have the full support of Konstantyn's former court. Because of his long and loyal service to the nation, Bogdanocoz also held more support among the soldiery, which would have proved essential in securing any change in power.

It is suspected that Roman was made aware of the meeting, as only hours later he was spotted leaving the capital in haste, with some of his loyal followers in company. Bogdanocoz called an urgent meeting of the court's advisors, where it was decided for Kalikhan to convert to an elected monarchy, and that Crin would be set to rule as a regent until a fair election could be held.

On August 4, with landslide majority support, Crin Päevaliljy was elected as queen of Kalikhan.


For most of its history, Kalikhan was a federation consisting of 5 districts and a federal capital. All districts had autonomous administrations, led by princes appointed by the ruling monarch.
