Currently ruled by God-Empress Melistrata. Safe haven for all. The stories told of five-hundred pilgrims who had escaped from a far continent. Exiled for their beliefs on the 188th year of the First Era (E.I.C. 188), especially the supposedly controversial human sacrifice, the leader Numenorix led his hearty pilgrims from the frigid lands of the North, to a more temperate and welcoming South. Legend tells us that the old seers had told Numenorix to stop when he found "two eagles, bearing in a pose of strength, resting upon the crown of rocks," Odes.I.Lines 465-466.

The Five Hundred had sanctified the area as the Corona Aquillae, or the Crown of the Eagle, marking the Second Era Year 1 (192 E.I.C.). Settling around the circle of rocks, Numenorix named the village “Aquilla”. After four years of settlement, the Aquillian tribe had assimilated some of the local inhabitants of the land as well as other similar pilgrims from their homeland, reaching numbers of about two thousand. However not all inhabitants were pleased that a new power, the Aquilians, had settled in the marshes. Tribes surrounding them, such as the Tullians from the West, the Gracchae from the South and the Hfolganling from the North all threatened the stability of Aquillian society. Under the Warchief Olafr of Hfolganling, bandits raided Aquilia, looting treasures and even killing Heimja, wife of Numenorix.
Urged by increasing threats upon their livelihood, the Aquillians rapidly mobilized for the defense of their new home while secretly preparing an invasion force to strike at the hearts of the Hfolganling tribe. During the War of the Red Marshes, E2 4 (196 E.I.C.), while the Aquillian defenders beat back the unrelenting waves of Warchief Olafr, the Aquillians under Numenorix captured Brynholf, the largest village of the Hfolganlings. Numenorix offered a tenth of the women in the village for sacrifice to the Sun. An especially gruesome account describes the priests stabbing the heart of one woman restrained onto a stone slab, tossing her down the steps of the temple and moving onto the next sacrifice. The Hfolganlings not accustomed to this type of warfare capitulated and ultimately capitulated.
Numenorix, was declared by Olafr to be the Dominus, lord, of his people. Aside from the initial sacrifice, the rest of Hfolganling was spared and merged with the Aquillians, forming the Tigotierian Alliance (Old Tigotierian, Tigus, fierce, + Tierius, will).
Wars of Expansion
In E2 8 (200 E.I.C.), Under Numenorix, undisputed leader of the alliance, the expanding Tigotierian alliance declared war on Tullian and the Gracchae tribes who, realizing the threat of the Tigotierians, formed the Tertullian League along with other minor tribes. The Tertullian War was easily won by the Tigotierians. With the Aquillian style of warfare along with the numbers of the Hfolganling tribe, the Tigotierian Alliance encircled and surrounded the Tertullian forces at the Battle of Tigron River, decimating them on land and pushing them into the marshes, causing ninety percent of the Tertullian forces to either be dead or dying. Numenorix again led a surprise attack on the major towns of the Tullian and Gracchae tribes, sacrificing one tenth of each village to the Sun. By the end of E2 10 (202 E.I.C.), the Tertullian forces had surrendered and been assimilated into the growing Tigotierian Alliance. By E2 40 (232 E.I.C.), the Tigotierian Alliance had controlled all of the Varagarian Marshes.
