The prefecture of Blanssmesòu et Equinnaea ([bläns.me.'sou et e.ki.nä.'e.ä]) was the southernmost and largest prefecture in Altannia Unita, albeit the most sparcely populated. Its last prefect was ESGD Ana Bango da Quonca Roussa da Domeuanna.

Etymology

The name of the prefecture comes from the union of two of its provinces, Blanssmesòu and Ouvratta d'Equinnaea. Blanssmesòu stands for "White House" or "White Manor" in Old Altannese, in reference to the Blanssmesòu Monastery, even if, nowadays, it makes up its own Alcaldía. Equinnaea stands for "Land of the Horses", in reference to the horse population present in the province.

History

The territory comprised by this prefecture corresponded to the latest annexed territories of contiguous Altannia. Blanssmesòu was incorporated in 2014 to Eastern Altannia, and it would not be until September 3, 2016, that the remaining parts of the prefecture would be annexed. These territories have not undergone the same territorial scramble as their counterparts to the west, due to their late addition to Altannia.

Blanssmesòu gives name to its namesake treaty, which regarded the reversal of the Act of Eastern Surveillance, in exchange of granting the King of Western Altannia the title of duke of Blanssmesòu. Territorial reforms afterwards made this title shift into grand duke of Blanssmesòu Septentrionalis, which the Emperor holds to this day.

The territories of the former prefecture have not been historically united. Shortly after the annexation of the southernmost provinces, they were under the control of Iago del Verbo's Southern Altannia, but, in accordance to the principle of no power concentration, Issilumbratta was shortly after ceded to Northern Altannia. During the System of Ponttes d'Ecclesiatta, Blanssmesòu belonged to Eastern Altannia, whilst Issilumbratta remained a part of Northern Altannia.

In July 2019, the system of prefectures was abolished.

Geography

Blanssmesòu is a fairly lush province, thanks to the river Rousso da Domeuanna, which passes through most of its land. Parts of it draw the frontier between Blanssmesòu and Issilumbratta, making the north of this vast province a green area too. However, the southernmost and westernmost territories of the prefecture are generally dry, with the whole of Ouvratta d'Equinnaea being an arid territory, and Plannies de San Antonnio consisting, mostly, of golden wheat plains, despite its more humid duchy of Foresttes Ladderiennes, whose geography is more akin to that of Issilumbratta. The terrain is more rugged in the north and in the southeast, whilst the south and southwest are mostly flat.

Politics

Blanssmesòu et Equinnaea was a safe FAP prefecture, having only elected FAP leader ESGD Ana Bango da Quonca Roussa da Domeuanna as their prefect.
