First Commerce Wars
The First Commerce Wars, from 7BE to 4BE, were the precursor to the creation of the Aurian Empire. They occurred after the first pledge of allegiance, which was when 6 surrounding states threw their lots in with Auria officially. This gave Auria, already a leader among the City States an unprecedented level of influence and power.United behind the visionary leader Jomark, the powerful city state of Auria managed to turn its financial power and concentrated population into an expansionist campaign. Using every method from trade treaties and financial takeovers, to outright military invasion, Auria was able to turn three more of the city states next to it into vassal states. These take overs have come to be called the First Commerce Wars. These wars were crucial as they gave Auria access to the Kalan military school and methods as well as the Armakanian research colleges.
