History

Anthos

In 1483, Varon Kovachev and Vasili Vanir formed the Kingdom of Akovia after the Battle of Kaer Angren. However, Varon was soon deposed from the Akovian throne by Arik Vanir sometime before the Schism War due to Varon’s growing illness of mind, which had caused him to lose the love of the highborn and lowborn alike.

Vailor

Upon the sudden death of the heirless young lord, Stefan Sarkozic, the nobles of Carnatia proclaimed Stefan's grandsire, Count Jan Kovachev of Kvasz, as Duke of Carnatia in 1546. He would later be crowned at the field of Marandal by Emperor John I. Duke Jan ruled with an iron fist from that very year to 1567, leading the Holy Orenian Empire to victory during the Third Rurikid Uprising and the Riga War as Imperial Marshal. He quickly became a war hero among the highlander folk, known for crushing the Courlandic forces of Duke Alexander of Courland in the field of battle and fighting alongside his men until the ripe age of 75.

Axios

In 1585, Sergei Kovachev, the Count of Turov, withdrew his forces from King Andrik Barbanov’s army during the Deep Cold Uprising, influencing other vassals of the realm to do the same, effectively ending the short-lived rebellion, maintaining the status of the Kingdom of Haense as a vassal to the Holy Orenian Empire.

Sergei’s son, Henrik, took up his lord father’s titles upon Sergei’s mysterious death in 1589. Under him, Turov prospered greatly, quickly becoming the northern centre of trade of Tahn. For this, Count Henrik was awarded the Duchy of Carnatia, thereby restoring the ancient ducal coronet to the House of Kovachev. Duke Henrik was offered a position in the King’s privy council, as Lord Chancellor of Haense, a position he upheld for nearly half a decade until his assassination in 1600.

Rule over the Duchy of Carnatia would eventually pass to Henrik's son, Sergei II, who would lead the House of Kovachev through the period known as the Great Northern War. After fleeing into exile, Sergei would abdicate in favour of his uncle, Viktor Kovachev in 1611. Viktor would go on to reclaim the Duchy of Carnatia during the events of the Greyspine Rebellion, thus restoring the family's ducal title yet again.

Upon being offered a place upon King Stephen I's Privy Council, Viktor would abdicate in favour of his cousin, Sergei III in 1619.

Atlas

In Atlas, the House of Kovachev would come under the rule of Rickard I of Carnatia, son of Sergei III in 1634. Partly due to the misfortune that crippled the family in wake of the exodus from Axios, Rickard's relations with the Royal Family would sour. His reign marked by bitter, near hostile exchanges with the Royal Court. Eventually, part in due to his rising unpopularity, Rickard would abdicate, in 1664, in favour of a regency council. Eventually, he would be succeeded by his daughter, Emma I of Carnatia in 1669.

As the first ruling Duchess of Carnatia, Emma's short tenure in office was met with hostilities from the Haenseni nobility, worsened still due to disaffection sown by her father. In light of this development, the separatist Josef Kovachev, who had split away from the Kingdom of Haense and pledged his loyalty to King Aurelius I of Renatus, sought to claim rule over the House of Kovachev. He would be named Grand Marshal of Renatus-Marna and, after many years of devoted service, dubbed Baron of Kovgrad and Lord Protector of the Gryphon’s Roost.

Due to the presence of a popular replacement, political opponents within the Haenseni court pressured Duchess Emma to abdicate, in 1674. Thus, the title would pass to Josef. However, he would vanish without a trace in 1676, leaving only his son, Henrik II, behind. Henrik quickly took the reigns of the House of Kovachev, asking Aurelius I for his blessing, which he granted. Thus, Henrik would take up his lord father’s titles.

In 1686, Henrik var Josef abdicated his Renatian titles in favor of his uncle, Ser Carlovac Kovachev, in order to be released of his vows to the now Emperor, Aurelius I. Henrik would to the Kingdom of Haense, the realm that had previously seen his family prosper, and there he swore loyalty to King Robert I, who dubbed him Baron of Venzia and next Duke of Carnatia after discussing the laws of succession with his Haensetian kin. Not long after his return, Henrik joined the Brotherhood of Saint Karl and, after nearly a year of service, was named Crown Marshal by the Lord Rhys var Ruthern, the former Crown Marshal of Haense.
