The Royal Hjalsk Army is the main army of the Jarldom of Hjalvik. It is the largest of the military branches of the Hjalsk Armed Forces, with a current recruitment of 8.



The Royal Hjalsk Army was established on 29 August 2020, as part of the Hjalsk Armed Forces contract, by Jarl Juvan I. The army had very little funding, but was eventually built up by citizens of Hjalvik deciding to enrol upon their own behalf. The Royal Hjalsk Army’s official flag was adopted on 3 October 2020.

Short Rebellion

On 2 November 2020, a rebellion broke out during an armed forces drill. After multiple ranks refusing to listen to Jarl Juvan I and the Royal Admiral Jakub Topheim, Drill Commander Hourston decided to take the side of the recruits, resulting in a minor uprising against the Jarldom. After a short while, the rebellion has accomplished nothing over Hjalvik, and decided to back down and apologise to the Jarl. Herra Tek received a Hjalsk Medal of Bravery for putting himself between the Jarl and the rebels, in defence of the monarchy.


The Royal Hjalsk Army is structured in two main divisions, each with individual regiments.

  • 1st Hjalsk Division
    • Midfold Regiment
      • 1st Midfold Battalion
      • 2nd Midfold Battalion
    • 2nd Hjalsk Medical Regiment
    • 1st Outer Regiment

    • 1st Tanþheim Regiment
      • 1st Eiktoft Battalion
    • 1st Hjalsk Medical Regiment
