The Kingdom of Altora was founded on September 29th, 2012, after the merger of the Kingdom of Cevington and the Republic of Andoria.
The History of Altora starts with 2 separate micronations. The Kingdom of Cevington and the Republic of Andoria.
Andoria was founded sometime in early 2008 by Jordan Herwith. Originally founded as a Star Trek fan group, they were dissapointed in the 2009 Star Trek movie and began to move away from Star Trek. Many members had an interest in politics, and they decided to start a micronation on February 3rd, 2010. It was stable until April 12th, 2012, when Cevington, a newly formed micronation in the same school, declared war. Andoria didn't want a part in, but they were being phisically attacked by Cevingtonian citizens. They reached an agreement to settle the war through a real time war strategy game. Andoria won the battle, dubbed, the battle of Northside, and signed the Treay of the Northside on May 3rd, 2012. Little happened until September 29th, 2012 when Cevington merged with Andoria, forming Altora.
Cevington was a micronation formed on April 8th, 2012 by Joseph Mai, in protest against Andoria. They declared war on Andoria, physically attacking them until they lost the battle Northside on May 3rd, 2012. On June 7th they had their first elections, and Joseph Mai was elected President. Towards the end of August, he changed the constitution, effectively making himself dictator. Due to massive public pressure, he resigned. Instead of starting new elections, they decided to merge with Andoria.
Jordan Herwith, King of Andoria, became King of Altora by default due to there being no candidate from Cevington. The king formed the Council of Elders, an advisory group of 3 members that would always contain 2 Andorians and 1 Cevingtonian.
