The Duchy of Appinfeldt is a member state of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire, located in Dallas, United States of America. It was founded by Michael I, Duke of Appinfeldt as a state member with status of corpus separatum of Karnia-Ruthenia. On 08 November 2016, after weeks of negotiation and strengthening the historic friendship between the sovereigns, it was decided that Michael I, Duke of Appinfeldt would join the Empire as duke. The status of the Duchy of Argadia was established to be equal to the other member states of the Empire.
Following the enactment of martial law on 01 July 2018 and the deposition of Prince James on the following day, the Principality of Scotia was ruled by the Command of the Fourth Army until 07 July, when Appinfeldt and Scotia were reorganized to found a single state.
Uniting the Scottish culture of Appinfeldt and the Irish culture of Scotia, the state with geographic possessions on both sides of the Atlantic would be governed by the most eligible of the candidates, Michael of Appinfeldt, who in addition to renowned ability as a military and politician, also had Scottish and Irish ancestry. The merge of the states gave origin to the Grand Duchy, whose name is the Germanic equivalent of Inishtooshkert, the Irish name of the territory of the Principality of Scotia.
