Kingdom of Maevis
Kingdom of Maevis
|Official languages||English, Norwegian|
|Establishment||17 June 2020|
The Kingdom of Maevis was founded on 18 June 2020, as a part of the Empire of Agber. The nation is located in Shetland, Scotland, with Queen Barbara sitting on the Rowan Throne as Sovereign. It joined with two other projects on 5 January 2022 to form the Prydain Kingdom of Maevis, Berwyn, and Innèsoil.
The founder and first Sovereign of Maevis, Queen Barbara, had previously served within the Empire as the Comtesse of Rulison, within the Grand Duchy of Carthage. She served dutifully in this role until she relocated back to Shetland in early 2018. She remained involved with Carthagean affairs, and retained her citizenship with them after leaving, and began initial discussions with Empress Arlene of Agber about forming a new nation within the Empire in the late spring of 2020. The idea for the nation came from her home area's blending of Norse and Scottish traditions. The nation was founded in June 2020, with its name taken from the Old Norse word Mæveiðs, which means narrow land.
Maevis is ruled by either a Queen or King, as part of the Prydain Kingdom. Provincial heads hold the title of Jarl, regardless of their gender. Clans exist much as they do in Scottish tradition, but they have no official role in the government of the nation.
