Centuria I Wrythiae was founded as the 1st Greater Wrythe Battalion on 23 May 2009. At the time of its foundation, it was the only battalion in the only regiment in the only division, and so comprised the entirety of the Austenasian Army. The battalion fought in the Skirmish of the Treasury, and then in August 2009 part of the battalion was mobilised to annex Commius Flats. During the Austenasian Civil War, part of the 1st Greater Wrythe Battalion saw combat during the Battle of the Grove.
Over its history as the 1st Greater Wrythe Battalion, it contained at differing times the 1st Wrythe Heavy Infantry Platoon, the 2nd Wrythe Light Infantry Platoon, and the 1st South Kilttown Grenadiers Platoon.
On 13 January 2011, as part of wide reforms to the Austenasian Army, the Battalion was renamed Centuria I Wrythiae. It was dissolved along with the Austenasian Army as a whole on 17 June 2020.
