The Ovezian Revolution (Ovese: La Rivoluçõ Ovêziána) was a period of intense societal and political upheaval that occurred in Ovezia at the start of the Century of Discontent. The revolution began with the Convention of the Lords in November 1827 and ended with the restoration of the Ovezian Amalate under Aorura I in 1834. A great number of ideas brought forward over its course are foundational principles of liberal democracy across the Abayadi Sea, and the institutions and political culture it fostered remain at the forefront of Ovezian politics.(See More...)

The Tomb of Sarrak ha-Nundahr Ha-Khadrami, which doubles today as a temple for the Jarader faith, is a building located in modern day Alero which holds the body of Sarrak ha-Nundahr Ha-Khadrami, the founder of the ancient Tanuzhakid Empire. Hailing originally from the regions of modern Agarad, Sarrak travelled southwards in hopes of treasures and prestige, both of which he would aquire in his lifetime. He went on to raid the Kekere region, acquiring the territories of Queen Ekpedure after the battle of Iròiyè, and Queen Ereuwa of Tetmosi in a resounding victory for Sarrak outside of the cities walls. This battle would go on to establish Sarrak as a prominaent force in the region, using Tetmosi as his new capital to perform additional campaigns. The empire Sarrak established would continue to exist in some format from 126CE until collapse in 1034CE. See past featured pictures
