History

Formation of Arnham

The Formation of Arnham was not a violent revolution, hardly a revolution, no casualties. It was claimed to be a revolution to breakaway from Holland; instead, it was a protest for Arnhamese independence.

Empire

The Imperial State of Arnham was founded by Najib I on 23 January 2008 following Geert Wilders's election to the House of Representatives in the 2006 Dutch general election. It was founded for multicultural purposes.

During the first month of its existence, Arnham gained a population of 16, with the military and treasury being created as well, in addition to a nobility system. In 2009, Arnham allied itself with the UDO.

In 2010, Najib I ceased his rule and left the nation to Sam I as the Empire officially became a constitutional monarchy, with the Imperial Senate as the new legislature. The first colony of the Empire, Arnham Prime, was annexed in August. Later, Sam became Minister of Defense.

In 2010 Sam was succeeded by Shady Morsi as the third emperor of Arnham. Under his rule, a constitutional monarchy was installed, with Wessel De Wekker as minister. Due the fact Shady left, Sam became Emperor for the second time; he would later abdicate in 2013, with Wessel becoming the Emperor of Arnham.

Arnhamese Civil War

The Arnhamese Civil War was a civil war in the Imperial State of Arnham, fought between the loyalist government under Wessel (with support of Viadalvia) and Arnham under Dennis Cristian. Arnham became an imperialist state following Dennis's victory.

Dennist Arnham and downfall

Arnham's rapid imperialism and militarization under the slogan "Arnhamese Pride World Wide" led to its emergence as a regional power.

The Oegstgeest War was the result of Arnhamese imperialist policy aiming to dominate Steingrad politically and militarily and to secure its vast raw material reserves and other economic resources, particularly food and labour. On 9 December, Stein Dros, the commander of the 1st Viadalvian Army, demanded that Arnham become a republic; Dennis refused, with Arnhamese military units being mobilized.

On the night of 21 December, the 1st Viadalvian Army invaded Arnham from its eastern border, occupying the capital, New Willemstad. Arnhamese forces attempted to repel the attack, which failed and resulted in their capture. The next day, Arnham was founded.
