King William Julie watched as the landscape passed by him, as the luxurious vehicle he Road in came to a slow and gentle stop in front of the Geroskipou palace. The door was opened for him and his dear wife, and he took a second to admire the exterior of the structure.He smiled, as his wife stepped out, he swore she was ever more beautiful every time he saw her.

He walked with Karola up to the palace doors, not entirely sure what would happen, though he was certain that he would be pleasantly surprised

Geroskipou Palace was a marvel of the world. Built in the infancy of the king’s father, the late King Enrikos’s reign, over the decades it had been further added too, no expenses was ever spared and no care was given to what affects or lives might have been loss in bring about the dream of the King. It was not the largest palace, least not by square footage, but it was still opulently massive and it won the title of the world’s largest royal domains, with countless gardens, canals, lakes and the like. The Gardens of Geroskipou were often considered the Jewel of Cinyras for their beautiful, extensiveness and the great care that went into maintaining their utter perfection.

As the King and Queen of New England arrived, Cinyroite heralds in traditional fustnellas with the emblem of the House of Milanes in their uniforms sounded trumpets to note the arrival of guests. The King’s majordomo, Lord Tassos Petrous tapped his grand ceremonial staff against the ground, a gentle but loud echoing ringing sound sweeping through the air. Another herald, this one with black stockings step forward.

“Their Majesties, the King and Queen of Cinyras!”

Stepping forward from the anteroom of the main entrance’s foyer, King Loudovíkos and his wife, Queen Sara stepped out into the sunlight, the king in a brilliant and spotless military uniform, though his military career had been practically nonexistent, but still it was decorated with honors and medals and awards nonetheless, a bright sky blue sash across his chest.

The herald in the black stockings cleared his throat and spoke once more. “Their Majesties, the King and Queen of New England!” Cannons fired off in the distance to mark the moment.

King Loudovíkos I gave a small polite smile as he greeted the King and Queen of New England.

“It is a pleasure to meet you Your Majesties, allow me to welcome you to Cinyras.”

Queen Sara stood quietly by her husband’s side as he greeted the first of their guests. The queen had found that she always did better with her husband when she stayed quiet. The King and Queen has a marriage that had lasted nearly thirty years and whilst there had been time of fiery passion between them, now that their children were getting older the two of them were more of good friends than they were lovers.

The Queen of Cinyras wore her long blonde hair up in a elaborate hairstyle that went up in stylish Cinyroite cone. Large diamonds and pearls hung from her ears, a matching tiara on her head. She wore a sweeping sky blue dress with a large reticella collar made from fine lace spreading out behind her like the feathers of a peacock. Her round and pretty face was marked with subtle blush and red lipstick. Her eyes were a beautiful dark blue.

Queen Karola, a tall blonde woman wore a simple ivory white and blue dress that somewhat hide her steadily growing stomach that marked her pregnancy. She walked alongside her husband. Where Sara and Loudovíkos’ marriage had cooled, the spark was still glowing and looking to grow between Karola and William. Karola smiled at the Queen, recognizing her features as she was the sister of Karola’s friend the Princess of Réthy.

“Your Majesty, It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.”

William instinctively winced at the firing of the Cannon, but he kept himself composed and smiled before saying "Thank you, this is quite the palace that you have here" he then said with a slight joiking tone "I may have to use some of the design in future constructions myself" he wasn't serious, though it certainly wasn't something he would hesitate to do if he was constructing a new palace.

William then motioned to Karola and said "this is my gorgeous and brilliant wife, Karola" he couldn't help but give Karola a look of admiration. She had been very rapidly wearing on him, and her being pregnant had only inflamed that effect, and he wasn't complying about it either.

King Loudovíkos smiled proudly. His father would be proud. He had spent so much time and effort into the construction of Geroskipou Palace, it had been his passion project, so much so that Loudovíkos had once joked that Geroskipou was his sister.

“Thank you Your Majesty, Geroskipou, she is the greatest beauty after all.”

King Loudovíkos turned to the Queen of New England and nodded his head. “A pleasure to meet you as well Your Majesty. Come, come, let us take a picture.” He waved the two to stand next to him and Queen Sara as the royal photographer, a young woman named Erasmia Mina stepped forward and snapped a few photos. Elsewhere the press snapped their own pictures from their own little boxes.

“The press, they love taking pictures of us royals, but honestly it can be so annoying. So I made a head with them, public events, fine, private ones, they get a official picture, and the rest of the time they leave us alone. Amazing how easily dogs will feast on scraps.”

William smiled and said "I have gotten used to them for the most part, so I am not as bothered by them. Besides the Vanguards are very good at convincing the press to give us a bit of breathing room."

He then said "They also make an excellent tool when wielded appropriately" he then said "And drones have made the process a little less obnoxious"

King Loudovíkos laughed. “Less obvious you mean. The press have been, and always will be little sneaks.”

The King of Cinyras shook William’s hand and gently ushered him and his Queen away so that he and Queen Sara May greet the next arrivals. A valet, Argyris Gabris walked forward to the King and Queen of New England, bowing and gesturing then forward.

“Pleasure follow me to the Great Hall.”

King Jonatan XI of Racraigua sat in a royal town car, traditional in design, with his wife, Queen Coralie and two of their grandsons as the car made its way through the beautiful city by the sea of Nikosia towards the even more beautiful Geroskipou Palace. King Jonatan XI, the first monarch from the House of Canas and the 37th monarch of Racraigua had been honored at the invitation to attend the Silver Jubilee of their western neighbor, King Loudovíkos of Cinyras. King Jonatan XI himself had celebrated his own silver jubilee fourteen years ago in 2069 and could understand the great importance of the celebration.

The car made it way up to the palace, stopping before the walkway lined with heralds and all other forms of ceremony. The door of the car was opened by a valet and first to exit the car, as royal protocol dictated, was King Jonatan, followed by his wife Queen Coralie, then the eldest of their grandsons present, second eldest over all, Prince Jonatan and then finally the youngest of their grandsons, Prince Roderic.

King Jonatan and Queen Coralie walked together, slowly but steadily. The two, the king being 89 and the queen being 91, had been said to have aged well. Queen Coralie waved and smiled to the press whilst King Jonatan had a more reserved smile, focusing ahead at their Cinyroite counter parts. Behind them walked Prince Jonatan, named after his father and grandfather before him, who was 29 and second-in-line to the throne, and his younger brother, Prince Roderic. Prince Roderic was 21 and third-in-line to the throne.

As they approached the King and Queen of Cinyras, King Jonatan nodded his head friendly, as he was of equal rank to the King of Cinyras. Queen Coralie however curtsied to King Loudovíkos, as though she was a princess by birth, she was still of lesser rank than him. Prince Jonatan and Prince Roderic followed suit in bowing to King Loudovíkos and Queen Sara.

Lord Tassos Petrous tapped his grand ceremonial staff against the ground, a gentle but loud echoing ringing sound sweeping through the air. The herald in the striking black stockings stepped forward once again and declared the arrival of the group.

“Their Majesties the King and Queen of Racraigua, and Their Royal Highness the Princes of Racraigua.” As he finished cannons fired off once again to mark the arrival of monarchs whilst the King greeted them with a smile and a slight bow out of respect for the elderly king.

“It is a pleasure to meet you Your Majesties.”

King Jonatan smiled at the respectful bow. He spoke with a slight purring Racraiguan accent as he talked to the King of Cinyras. "It is an honor to be your guest on such a important occasion Your Majesty. It is marvelous when the cries of the people of long live the king do come true. I hope that you rule for many more years to come. I hope we each shall be able to celebrate our golden jubilees."

Queen Coralie nodded in a agreement with her husband while their grandson did the same in unisons. Prince Jonatan took a step forward.

"And it seems that twenty five years has not age either one a day, you look as strong," he then looks to the Queen of Cinyras, "and as beautiful as if you have just entered your prime."

King Loudovíkos smiled at the young Prince Jonatan.

“A flatter this one is I see, well who doesn’t like a bit of flattery? I know that I am certainly enjoy it.”

The King of Cinyras laughed as he gently ushered the present members of the Racraiguan Royal Family inside, leaving for them to find their own delegation attendant in the form of Mihalis Kontos. Kontos bowed to the King and Queen of Racraigua and their grandsons and instructed them to follow him, taking them to the Great Hall were the King and Queen of New England were already waiting.

Princess Siola’a of Aogau, daughter of Prince ‘Etuate of Aogau and second-in-line to the throne of Aogau had arrived in Nikosia in order to represent Aogau at the King of Cinyras’ Silver Jubilee. The twenty year old princess had been selected as representative as the Queen of Aogau was still too young for public appearances, and her uncle, Siola’a‘s father was very busy running the kingdom and fear not being by the child monarch’s side.

The young and beautiful princess stepped out of the town car that had been provided for her, the red white and blue flag of Aogau flapping lightly in the breeze. Princess Siola’a wore an Aogaian dress, making her stand slightly out from the more western styles of dress of many of the other guests. Her dress was white, a pure as the picture perfect beaches of her home country whil fit was decorated from the knees down with orange Aogaian hibiscuses.

Instead of a tiara, Siola’a simply had a flower placed into her hair which tumbled down past her shoulders. She smiled as she walked out of the town car and down towards the waiting King and Queen of Cinyras. As the Princess reached them she performed a curtsey. “It is an honor to meet you Your Majesties.”

King Loudovíkos smiled at the lovely Aogaian princess. As was done for the previous guests, cannons went off, though a slight fewer as Princess Siola’a, while absolutely beautiful, was not a fellow monarch. He kissed her hand as she rose from the curtsey.

“It is a pleasure to meet you Your Royal Highness. You are truly the great flower of Aogau.”

Princess Siola’a nodded politely at the older monarch. He seemed like a charming gentleman, and she was flattered, if not entirely surprised by his compliments. Many in Aogau had spoken about her looks, so she was no stranger to such words.

“You are too kind Your Majesty. My cousin, Her Majesty the Queen of Aogau sends her most sincere congratulations on this joyous occasion in your nation Your Majesty. She regrets that she could not attend herself, but hopes that you shall have a long and prosperous reign.”

King Loudovíkos had heard of the ever elusive Queen of Aogau, with his first reports telling him that she was a near mythical figure that was revered as a goddess and not allowed to be gazed upon by mere mortals. He’d rather like that tale, and had been somewhat disappointed to learn that she was but a mere child who was not yet ready for public appearances. Nonetheless he was happy to be in the mind of the young monarch.

“Do thank Her Majesty upon your return to Aogau, but for now I do hope that you shall enjoy your stay here and the many celebrations to come.”

With this, the King of Cinyras gently ushered the princess forward to be introduced to her own valet forcthe duration of the celebrations, this one named Ioannis Spanos. After giving a polite bow, Spanos lead Princess Siola’a into the palace to the Great Hall.

William had followed them to the great hall, mostly keeping his silence up to that point, William had been taking very accurate mental notes of the architectural design. It was very important for him to do so, as he planned to expand the company that he secretly owned even further from what it already was.

He noticed the Aogaian Princess, which reminded him of something that he needed to get around to doing, though it would have to wait. For now he would focus on the jubilee that was ongoing.

There stood infront of Catherine, a magnificently built palace.Even though she admired her own palace back home, this too was surely something to be amazed of.Standing beside her, her guardian, uncle and also, the Heir Apparent, Grand Duke Ivan Vasilyevich."Uncle, I really loved this place.Just look at it", exclaims her, admiring the beautiful scene infront of her.After making their way in by the guards, they turned politely to meet the King."Greetings, sir, I am Grand Duke Ivan Vasilyevich, Heir Apparent of Rurik Russia, and this is my niece, the Tsarina, Catherine V Of Rurik Russia", introduces him to the King.For most people there, it would probably be a bit weird that the younger and shorter female teenager is the monarch;not the older and taller one.But for them, it is what it is.Catherine politely addressed the King with a genuine smile."It's nice to meet you, sir", says her.

Cannons fired off in the distance, once again back to its full number in honor of the monarch of Rurik Russia. The black stocking wearing herald step forward, announcing the arrival of the Tsarina and the Grand Duke. King Loudovíkos quietly noted in his head to not confused her with the other Tsarina.

That would prove very easy it seemed as Loudovíkos was struck by Catherine’s face. Not because she was a great beauty like Siola’a, though she was incredibly beautiful, but had how similar she looked to his wife, Queen Sara. Sara naturally was older than Catherine, but she was after all so much younger than her husband that he near could be her father. If so, Sara looked like she could be Catherine’s mother.

King Loudovíkos was all smiles at this. “It is a pleasure to meet you Your Majesty. I was told of your youth, but not told of your breathtaking beauty. I do hope that you enjoy your stay here in Nikosia.”

Queen Sara smiled softly, even in the face of her husband dote so many kind words on other women, much younger woman she need not add. She looked to the young Tsarina of Rurik and felt a sense of joy. She wasn’t sure why, but she liked her. She looked to Grand Duke Ivan and spoke softly.

“It is a joy to meet you Your Highness, I do hope that the journey was enjoyable.”




Inside the Great Hall Queen Karola walked with her arm nicely around her husband’s arm. She two was an admirer of the palace, who couldn’t be? She couldn’t help but gawk a little, amazed that this country, so small on the world stage, could have created such a magnificent palace.

“It is so beautiful, don’t you think William?”

'Indeed it is, and to lighten our first meet, I would like to say you and my niece look, well, similar?", expresses him with a chuckle, patting his niece behind.Catherine, whom had rarely interacted with foreign leaders was quite unsure on how to respond."I hope we get to know better, Your Majesty", Catherine spontaneously speaks.Somehow, what her uncle said might be true, probably."Well then, I guess if both of us agrees, my niece can spend some time with Her Majesty the Queen?", Ivan was clearly being supportive of his niece, for him, this might be a chance for his niece to know foreign leaders better, them being the first.

King Loudovíkos smirked at the young monarch’s surprise. He had meet his handful of young world leaders in his days among all the monarchies of the world. Loudovíkos looked to Grand Duke Ivan, amuses at his pointing out of the striking resemblance between the Queen and the Tsarina. He waved his hand to his wife.

“I am sure that Sara would be happy to take her under her wing, no?”

Queen Sara chuckles slightly as Grand Duke Ivan said that Tsarina Catherine and she looked alike. Yes, no wondered she had liked her, it was like looking into a mirror from her younger years. She was a bit surprised by this proposal of the Grand Duke. Sara quickly figured that it was the uncle and not the niece who was, at least for the moment, in charge, naturally given the Catherine’s age. But the Grand Duke seemed to be good natured and supportive. The Queen of Cinyras smiled as Catherine V.

“I think it that can be arranged.”

"Well then, I entrust Catherine in your open arms, Your Majesty.Maybe I'm into something else perhaps", says him as he lowers his head to his niece's."Take good care of yourself, Katrine, I entrust you, yourself to be able to look out for yourself, you're a big girl now.Goodbye, dear", whispers him, pecking her a small kiss on the forehead.Even though he is legitimately the most able guardian of her at the time, she's not a little kid anymore, she is an independent, big girl already.Catherine took a moment to look at the Queen, her eyes seemingly bright."Greetings auntie Sara!I am Catherine Alexeievna Ivanovich!Can I walk with you?", addresses her with a cute voice and expression.From there, due to their almost similar resemblance, Catherine started to look upon her as some sort of a family member, even though they were never related.Seeing this, Ivan had anticipated that it'll be just fine.He turned to the King, "I believe I'll get going, if allowed Your Majesty?", asks him politely.

Queen Sara was caught off guard a bit by the eagerness of Catherine, and being called auntie. She had many of her own nephews and nieces, but she was rarely called such an affectionate and familial title. It made the Queen smile brightly at Catherine.

“Of course. I am Sara, I’d be happy to walk with you my dear.”

Sara looked to Loudovíkos and kissed his cheek affectionately. In all honestly she could do without having to stand through all the ceremony and rigid nature of greeting the guests when she could lead the celebrations inside. She gestured for Catherine to follow her, her sweeping blue gown fluttering behind her.
