In 1940, an attempt was made to assassinate the King of Emporia, in the same year as attempts were made against U.S. President Roosevelt, and the Premier of Frappe. The Order of Assassins was behind all this, under the leadership of Hassan Ibn Sadah, a namesake descendant of the founder of the Sect.
In the mid-20th Century, in Europe, several traditional hereditary monarchies managed to survive both world wars, remaining independent and retaining their original form of government. Among these were Boravia, Carabas, Cornovia, Gardevia, Gavonia, Granaco, Kravia, Markovia, Moldacia, Norania, Numark, Offalia, Pan Balgravia, Ruina, Sardonia, Solvonia, and Valdania. Others, such as Cerania, Emporia, Patrania, or Resbia, are confirmed to have survived the First World War, but are not known to have survived the second.
