Merchet, simply abbreviated as MCT, is the largest state in the Empire of Daresia and was one of the first regions to be discovered by the European Expeditions in the 16th century.
The 1500s: Clash of Cultures
The region of Merchet, discovered and settled in the year (XXXX) by mixed groups of French, German and Danish explorers, is home to countless fields of bloodshed; the region where many cultural clashes were fought. Until 1673, the oriental-dominated land was referred to as Shirakawa by those of Asian descent. However, this region was instead known as the Home of the Barbaric Orient by numerous European powers settling the continent.
The 1600s: The Feuille Expansion of Post-Cornelia Daresia
The death of Empress Cornelia of House Childefarne led to a period of internal strife known as the War for Shirakawa. With the fall of the Empress, who often promoted nationwide peace and unity- brought cultures together to accept one another; sharing religions, weaponry and advanced agriculture.
However, the war erupted when a lone individual of Asian descent managed to assassinate the House Warden of House Feuille, Louis Feuille; who was portrayed as a demon by the Asians for publicly promoting racial oppression and slavery. Thus, Clement Feuille, Louis' eldest son carried on his father's ambitions; and led the forces of House Feuille into Shirakawa; the land under House Kazusa.

The Fall of House Feuille under Pierre de Chauffard
Upon the return of Clement Feuille, the flagship L'Incorruptible of Feuille's Central Fleet docked at the French port city of Roussillien ; where his family boarded the ship to meet him.
Concerned that the Feuille family shared similar views of racial oppression, the ruthless Pierre de Chauffard decided to assassinate the family aboard the flagship. His clandestine movement within the Imperial Guard, consisting of many like-minded guardsmen upholding the ideals of peaceful unification; had eliminated loyalist men dedicated to Feuille's cause on the surrounding ships docked at the port.
Chauffard, a high officer of the Imperial Guard, waited onboard the L'Incorruptible along with guardsmen, both belonging to the loyalists and idealists. Following a victory speech held by House Warden Clement, Chauffard took it upon himself to recite a speech about racial discrimination, resulting in Clement ordering guards to seize him for acting against his personal ambitions. However, the seizure order had backfired, and the Feuille family were bound together; ultimately concluding in the Warden yelling "Vive le Feuille!" moments before his execution.
