160~250: The Golden Age of Begnion
The discrimination against the Laguz greatly increased over the years, and the Laguz’s hatred of Beorc rule reached its peak.
The independent Kingdom of Goldoa continually protested to the senate about the treatment of the Laguz, but to no avail. Within Begnion there appeared a Beorc movement to remove the power and property of Laguz.
The senate, stating themselves as perfect beings who were closest to the Goddess since ancient times, declared that the Zunanma were “humans” and that they, themselves, were also “humans”. Very quickly this inspiring name spread across the whole of Begnion and was eventually officially accepted. In comparison to themselves, the Laguz were seen to be closer to the beasts and were referred to as “sub-humans”.
320: Start of the Great Laguz Movement
In order to find new lands, the Laguz steadily started leaving Begnion.
Many of the beast tribe headed to the distant forests of Gallia, and some of the bird tribe escaped to the unknown southern islands.
350: First War of Gallia
The senate sent soldiers to diminish the power of the beasts who had escaped to Gallia.
However, the beasts used the forest terrain to their advantage and engaged in guerrilla warfare, leading to a fierce battle with the Begnion soldiers.
352: Laguz Emancipation Movement
The remaining Laguz in Begnion, encouraged by the battle at Gallia, started a movement to liberate the enslaved Laguz.
Within the senate there were those who defended the Laguz, and opinions were divided.
As a result, the inner disputes escalated and the Gallia expeditionary soldiers were temporary forced to withdraw.
355: Formation of Gallia
Solhaut of the Lion clan was pushed to become the leader of Gallia’s beast tribe and, with the support of Goldoa, Gallia was established.
360: Bird tribes find new residence
Encouraged by the formation of Gallia, the birds who had escaped to the southern islands began to call their comrades that remained in Begnion to escape.
The bird tribes slowly began to gather at the island known as Phoenicis, and their independence steadily rised.
Same year: Second War of Gallia
Worried about the current state of affairs, Begnion sent more soldiers on an expedition to Gallia.
However, before the beasts’ guerilla tactics, the battle was indecisive just like before.
385: Formation of Phoenicis
Taking advantage of the confusion caused by war, the birds push the Hawk Hols to become their king and, at the island of Phoenicis, established their own country.
390: Formation of Crimea
The Begnion senate divided into two. Led by the powerful senator Caradock, the side that wished to find peace with the Laguz became independent.

Begnion and Gallia signed a peace treaty.

405: Formation of Daein
The view of Beorc and Laguz equality increases in popularity, leading to the loss of power of those who back the sub-human view.
Led by the senator Hengist they left for independence and established their own country at Daein.
410~425: Daein-Crimea War
Daein requested for Begnion’s aid to invade Gallia, but Begnion refused.
Daein also requested of Crimea, but was refused as well.
Realising that they could not defeat Gallia by themselves, Daein invaded their neighbour Crimea instead.
However, due to Crimea’s strong resistance, the war was indecisive.
The war continued for 5 long years, before both countries decided to avoid destroying one another, and so ended the war.
420: Formation of Kilvas
Because of differences within the bird tribes, the Ravens left Phoenicis. At the nearby island of Kilvas they established their own country.
425: Begnion Empire’s invasion
Feeling that their dominance has started to fade, the Begnion Empire, using the Goddess’s name, sent troops to begin an invasion to restore their dominance of the continent.
The invasion started with new powers Daein and Kilvas.
428: Kilvas’ surrender
Kilvas refused Phoenicis’ reinforcements and surrendered to Begnion.
Also the Daein troops, concentrated at the capital of Nevassa, continued the resistance.
432: Tellius continental war
Believing Begnion’s dominance over the continent would not bode well, Crimea decided to ally with Daein, and declared war against Begnion.
Begnion’s battle with Crimea and Daein erupted.
Although Begnion’s might was unshaken, but due to the involvement of the Laguz of Gallia, Phoenicis and Kilvas, the war was prolonged and continued for numerous decades.
470: Formation of Serenes
The citizens of Serenes protested against Begnion’s war, which was done in name of the Goddess.
Because they doubted the existence of the Apostle, they ended up angering the senate and became at opposing sides with them.
Finally, the citizens of Serenes established their own independent country, although the battle of the validity of the Apostle never ended.
478: Treaty of Sarasa, Kingdoms of Daein, Kilvas and Serenes established
The war entered a seemingly neverending state. Begnion, worried about their great losses, finally decided to find a way to stop the war.
In the end, by the intervention of Goldoa, peace talks were held within the Sarasa region of Goldoa.
Begnion signed a treaty of peace, with the conditions that they had to return their conquered lands to Daein and Kilvas and recognise them as official countries.

Apostle Misaha became the 36th Empress of Begnion.
624: Laguz Emancipation Act

The Apostle’s voice was powerful. The senate could no longer ignore the cries of the country and ordered the release of all the Laguz slaves.
625: Serenes Massacre
Apostle Misaha was assassinated.
The senate declared this to be the doing of the Serenes citizens who doubted the existence of the Apostle.
The furious Begnion citizens ravaged the Serenes Forest and the Kingdom of Serenes fell in a few days.
