History:
1042: Kingdom of Poland, under the new king of Zbyszko I The Great, begins a new era.
1045-1080: Zbyszko during his reign, conquers Pruthenia, Belarus and the Red Ruthenia (Lvov and such)
1082: A new duke of Red Ruthenia rises to power. This time, its not a polish duke, but a ruthenian one. After 3 years of rule he grows discontent with the Polish liege, and allies with the duke of Belarus and duke of Pruthenia.
1083: The Polish king fies, and since he had no heir, his brother takes the throne. He, however, quickly gives up the throne - to his bastard son! The Polish nobles, now outraged by this, start a civil war in Poland. The three dukes see their chance, and declare independence.
1083-1087: During 4 years of fighting, the Polish rulers see there is no chance in winning against the revolting nobles and dukes. A peace treaty is signed in Cieszyn, where the Polish king agrees to split the land between the most powerful nobles and give independence to the eastern dukes.
1088: Kiev, who sent troops to help the three dukes win their war, now demands they swear fealty to the Crown of Ruthenia. Only the Red Ruthenian duke agrees to this, with the other two disobeying the Kiev's word.
However, the rules in Kiev dont take this lightly. They swiftly attack Belarus and Pruthenia, and defeat both with an ease.
1090-1125: During the time Kiev, now the strongest out of all the Ruthenian principalities conquers, or peacefully vassalizes, all the other princes. The boundaries are set, and the east slavic land are for once united.
1187: First Nomadic Invasion - As Ruthenia grows lazy from the peace, the nomads living to the south of launch an attack, aiming the riches of Kiev. They only manage to take a few castles in the south however, and are quickly pushed out by the Ruthenian armies.
1221: Mongols arrive. Enough said. Almost all the Ruthenian lands are conquered in the next two decades.
1244: Battle of Mińsk - As the Mongols arrive at the river of Mina, they expect there to be no resistance. However, Hungarians, Poles, Byelorussians, Pruthenians and peoples from many other nations united against the common enemy, and now the united army stands with the Mongols in sight. The battle begun, and after hours of fighting, Mongols are deafeated.
1244: As the united armies are moving to recapture mongol-controlled lands, the Great Khan dies. Everyone sees the opportunity, and the Mongols are pushed out of Ruthenia.
1251: The end of Mongol Empire - this one happened almost the same as we know it in real life.
1321-1333: Ruthenian civil war - Since centuries, Ruthenian lands were split in two. Novgorod in the north, and Kiev in the south. Kiev proved to be dominant of the two, and captured Novgorod some 200 years earlier. Now, the northern principalities grow envy of the riches of south, and declare independence. The next 12 years would be known as one of the most devastating wars Ruthenia ever fought. Finally, peace is settled with the empire split in two. However, the aftermath is horrible - 1/3 of the population dead, many big cities - among which Kiev - burned, and dead bodies pile around about everywhere.
1337-1341: With Kiev still in ruins, and the army practically dead, Poland, now reunited under one king, strikes to take back what they once conquered. In4 years they manage to occupy Kiev and other important cities, and peace is settles in Baltigrad, the capital of Prutehnia. Poland takes lands they conquered 300 years ago, and a bit more, all the way to Dneper, splitting Kiev into two - Dniepersk (Polish) and Kiev (Ruthenian.
1437: After a series of reforms, Poland becomes a parliamentary monarchy.
1456: The same parliamentary system is implemented in the autonomous lands of Belarus, Pruthenia and Dniepersk.
14th-16th century - For centuries, ruthenian lands west of Dneper and Dvina were influenced by christianity. The slavs slowly started celebrating events such as Christmas, Easter, and All Hallow's Eve, seeing them as their own however. Svarog became a much more central figure of worship, with Perun generally the second, regarded often as his son, or prophet, and the other gods more like demigods rather than anything. The catholics in areas of slavic majority meanwhile started picking up slavic traditions, again, seeing them as their own, their saints became more slavic-like with stronger god-like features, and a more divine feeling. The two became a lot like each other in the area, only with Pruthenia left unchanged, due to the very low amount of christians there. Nowadays, theologists mostly accept 14th to 16th century as the period where this syncretism happened the most. Outsiders considered this a heresy, and were upset by this taking place. The Pope even enacted an edict, condemning all those, and excommunicated them from the catholic church. Nowadays, these people generally call themselves "Rodne Wiary", but they were regarded as simply "pagans" by most of the population, the chrisitians meanwile were mostly referred to as "Eastern Rites"
1569-1590: Polish-Rutheno war - Novgorod, who now united with Kiev, declares a war on Poland. 21 years of fighting, with major battles taking place at Kiev-Dniepersk, Mohilew and Klaipeda, the war seems to still be stalemate. Something no one expected happened, however. A coup d'etat in Poland, putting the Novgorodian king on their throne, rendering the war won - for the loosing side of Novgorod.
1618-1620: History repeats itself - this time its Kiev who sparks the civil war, as opposed to Novgorod 300 years earlier. As poet Henrjik Zaborskij said however, 2 years later the kings basically said "Oh just screw it", and settles for peace, not wanting to have the same thing happening to them as it was previously. Ruthenia was once again split in two.
1620: After Kiev pulled back its armies, Novgorod - annuling anything the peace treaty said - attacked right away one more time. However, they did not expect that Kiev was expecting this. Having a good portion of its army backed out of the war, and now ready to strike, they destory Novgorodian armies, and Ruthenia is now.. united, but under Kiev.
1678: A formal letter arrives to the king of Kiev, threatening him with revealing information about his lovers, and telling him to surrender immediately and grant independence to Novgorod. He sent a reply letter saying "I guess i have no choice..."
1678-1688: 3rd Ruthenian Civil War. This time, Kiev manages to resist the revolters, and establishes controll over them. In the peace treaty, everything goes back to the state before war.
1690: Kievan king, bored of the rebellious Novgorodians, decides to curb all the vassals' rights, and create an absolutist monarchy. As expected - the vassals didnt like it. A war sparks out, with the king loosing it, and all the pricnipalities becoming independent.
1709-1713: Tensions between Belarus and Pruthenia continue rising, as the religious and cultural differences keep deepening. Finally, a war begins between the two, caused directly by the assasination of the king of Belarus by a pagano-slavic activist Mikołaij Pruski. The conflict, later called The 4 Years War, resluts in complete annexation of Pruthenia by Belarus.
1725: Belarus implements a reform to its parliemantary monarchistic government system, where the nobles would elect the new king from among the ruling dynasty. If there is no heir however, the king can choose the new dynasty.
1799: As the last king of Belarus from the dynasty of Poleskij dies, he chooses his wife to rule the country after him. Nobles - a bit upppity with the fact a woman rules their country for the first time, accept to this decision however. They have no choice after all.

The Empire of Francia proposes the establishment of a civil and military alliance between our nation and the Republic of White Ruthenia, to be sealed by the marriage of His Majesty the Emperor Louis XVI to one of Her Highness Katerina's dependents.

That seemed to amuse the northman. "I want to live forever in a land where summer lasts a thousand years. I want a castle in the clouds where I can look down over the world. I want to be six-and-twenty again. When I was six-and-twenty I could fight all day and fuck all night. What men want does not matter.

"Winter is almost upon us, boy. And winter is death. I would sooner my men die fighting for the Ned's little girl than alone and hungry in the snow, weeping tears that freeze upon their cheeks. No one sings songs of men who die like that. As for me, I am old. This will be my last winter. Let me bathe in Bolton blood before I die. I want to feel it spatter across my face when my axe bites deep into a Bolton skull. I want to lick it off my lips and die with the taste of it on my tongue."
