Welcome to Great Oceanus! Formed in 1091, the empire encompasses the British Isles, West France, Netherlands, Luxembourg, and North America. It is mainly based in Britain in the 18th century but with more European territories claimed.
King Henry I of England married the widowed Constance of France in 1112. Henry called together the kings of Ireland, Scotland, rulers in Wales, and Constance's father, the king of France, to a conference in May of 1113. The London Conference of 1113, as it was called, sought to form a new empire: Great Oceanus. Named for the oceans and channels separating the conferencing lands, the empire would promote trade and economic strength throughout western Europe. Under Henry and Constance's son, William, the lands of England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and the western half of modern-day France would form to make one empire.
On December 1, 1135, Henry I of England died and his son William was declared Emperor of Great Oceanus, and the aforementioned countries ceased to exist, and all lands were joined under one crown. Emperor William I of Great Oceanus was coronated on January 1, 1136.
In the late 1500s and early 1600s, Great Oceanus settled North American territory, and conquered it from Native American tribes soon after. In 1704, Luxembourg, Belgium, and the Netherlands were conquered by Emperor William III. The Empire is still the same as of 1765. The current monarch is Emperor Charles IV of Great Oceanus.
