BackgroundEditCartage is one of the the original two kingdoms of Megalo. Cartage is not as old as long time enemy Ros, though it is still percieved to be the stronger of the two.
Cartage emerged as the second of the two Megalo Superpowers, the other being Ros. Cartage is believed to have originated in present day Stitella. When the two kingdoms expanded to the point their borders met, Cartage wished to have a peaceful relationship with Ros that could benifit both of them. However, Ros met Cartage with hostility and declared war by attacking a Cartagan village that was near the border. This sparked the First War of Megalo, which Cartage won. Forty years later, the Second War of Megalo broke out, which Cartage won again. Cartage also broke itself up willingly into smaller kingdoms, though itself remains quite large. Cartage became a place of great trade with the islands of Amazolla and Angland. Cartage has fought in no wars for a thousand years, but has always been at odds and very wary of Ros and Gualia.
