History of Arconian[]

Arconian (more specifically Modern Arconian) is the main language of the Crown of Arconia in the United Crowns of Arconia and Graecia. It is also widely spoken in:

The Republic of Lombardia

The Synedrionate of Serbia-Macedonia

The United Synedrionates of Hesperia

Maghrebi Republic

Republic of Biafra

Union of Pascoleta

Arconian developed after the fall of the Romans when the mainly Greek Byzantine Empire invaded the Ostrogoths, securing the Italians under their control. This lasted until about 760, when the Vandals sacked Roma and drove the Byzantines out of Italy. Before and during the Byzantine-Vandal Wars of 724-760, Greeks had been moving to the area and had established a new culture: Arkenine Greek. They set up their own kingdom, conquering all of the Italian Penninsula, Dalmatia, Albania, and controlling Constantinople. Arconian sailors, responding to the Mamluk Caliphate's control of the Suez, sailed west through Gibraltar in 1465 and found Hesperia, as they called it. This led to the War of Hesperidean Independence in 1728 and further colonisation of Biafra, the Maghreb, the Horn of Africa, South Africa, and Bengal.

The Arconian language uses its own writing system, adapted from Latin, Greek, and some Cyrillic from slavs who moved there. It also has a romanization used in some contexts.

Classification and Dialects[]

Arconian is a Romance language in the Southern Romance subfamily, but its status as that is disputed. Some scientists say it is a Hellenic language for the fact that it does not use the Latin alphabet mostly, among other reasons.

Dialects of Arconian are: Lombardo-Arconian, Dalmatian Arconian, Sicilo-Arconian, Epiro-Arconian, Constantia Arconian, Hesperidean Arconian, Pascoletan (status disputed) , and African Arconian.
