The Duchy of Argadia is a member state of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire and was formerly under Imvrassian vassalship. It is located in Samos Island, Hellenic Republic. It was founded by Aggelos I, King of Imvrassia as a province of the then Principality of Imvrassia and consists of one house. It was maintained into the Kingdom of Imvrassia until 23 June 2016, when they gained independence from Imvrassia, but remained ruled by the House of Imvrassia.

On 01 July 2016, after weeks of negotiation and strengthening the historic friendship between Imvrassia and Ruthenia, it was decided that the smallest territory and crown land of Imvrassia, the Duchy of Argadia, that became independent from Imvrassia on 23 June 2016 would join the Empire. The status of the Duchy of Argadia was established to be equal to the other member states of the Empire, but strengthened the European side of the micronation, becoming the third state member of Karnia-Ruthenia established on the continent.
