Under-Realm of Urguan
Founded on the 8th of the First Seed, 1707. King Fimlin Grandaxe along with his council announced the declaration of the Under-realm of Urguan, in hopes of turning a new chapter of uniting the once fractured dwarven people. The Under-Realm had a banishment on all of the political enemies of the kingdom.
In the years 1711 and 1712, the Under-Kingdom fought a brief war against the heretical dwarven Kingdom of Mynebor, which became known as the Urguan-Mynbeor War. After this brief conflict, the Dwarves were united under one Kingdom.
Under-King Fimlin Grandaxe wanted to have full unity once more between all dwarves, therefore in the year 1714, all former political enemies of the Under-Realm were pardoned. In the year 1717, Under-king Fimlin Grandaxe resigned from his position as king after nearly 14 years on the throne of Agnarum. Following the resignation, an election was held with two major candidates, Gimli 'Metalfist' Grandaxe and Atandt Irongrinder. In the year 1717, Atandt Irongrinder became the second Under-King of the Under-realm of Urguan after a heated election against Gimli Grandaxe
Because of an increasing threat coming from the Orenian Empire, the Under-Realm signed a number of pacts with different nations around Arcas
Upon the Eleventh of the Deep Cold, 1724 the humans of the Orenian Empire insulted the Under-Realm, causing the dwarves to write a grudge and declare war, The Three-Month War. Mere three months later, after countless raids over the human lands, and skirmishes the dwarves emerged victorious, leading to a peace treaty. Because of the war, dwarven influence increased over Arcas.
At the third of Sun's Smile, 1727, With Atandt Irongrinder growing more and more disgruntled with the position as dwarven beardlings had begun calling for new blood despite Atandt Irongrinder being the youngest crowned in dwarven history. He would soon step down as the Under-King, his place taken by Utak Ireheart, who was voted unanimously, and who is also a former marshal of the Under-Realm.
The Under-Realm of Urguan's culture comes from the collective culture of the clans that inhabit it. Many of the inhabitants are warriors or craftsdwed, with the Dwarven Legion being very prominent in daily dwarven life. At its core the dwarves of The Under-Realm have a firm belief that kinslaying of other dwarves is wrong, and thus have a strong dislike of the Frostbeard and Ironborn clans. The Under-Realm also holds true to the dwarven traditions that shaped the dwarves, as well as the Brathmordakin Religion of the dwarves,
"Narvak oz Urguan!, Narvak oz Dwedmar!" meaning "Glory to Urguan!, Glory to the dwarves!" is a common phrase used to praise the Kingdom and the dwarves.
