Purpose

The Treaty of Vídeň is a treaty signed between Emperor-King Oscar of Karnia-Ruthenia, King Arthur II of Ebenthal and King Fernando of Roschfallen in which it was agreed that the Lateran State would become independent again under the auspices of the Kingdom of Ebenthal, while Roschfallen, under the protection of Karnia-Ruthenia would join the Imperial Circle and eventually join the Conference of Santiago.[1]

The was turned public in a very sensitive time, at the week following Empire Day in Karnia-Ruthenia and a day after the Treaty of Leige, that proclaimed Carpathia and Letzembourg independent.

History[edit | edit source]

On 27 June 2021, the rulers of Roschfallen, Ebenthal and Karnia-Ruthenia met in order to discuss their goals in micronationalism. While Ebenthal and Karnia-Ruthenia enjoyed a moment of expansion, Roschfallen was in collapse, with citizens leaving, the government in a hiatus that lasted for barely two years and almost no expression in foreign affairs. Considering the lack of will of Fernando I in keep ruling and how Roschfallen was under Ebenthali influence, an agreement was made: Fernando would abdicate to the Throne, finishing his two-year reign.

The cost of this change of sphere of influence was the independence of the Lateran State, that would eventually fall in the Ebenthali sphere of influence, while Roschfallen would join the Conference of Santiago and the Imperial Circle, and Fernando would act as Regent until the election of the new ruler. Even the territory would suffer a dramatic change - it was the first time the Nomadic Micronation Theory was used in Karno-Ruthenian affairs and, as result, the location of the kingdom changed from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo, abandoning the claim to Gros Morne, Seine Oceanic, Avalon, Iriland, Menoram and the capital, Triunphus.

The motivation behind the Karno-Ruthenian interests in Roschfallen was to secure a royal status to the family of her future consort, who should have to be from noble background. However, with the engagement of Oscar I to an infanta of the House of Woestein, this was no longer necessary, but the treaty was already completed, leaving the throne vacant for more time then expected by all signatoires, prolongin the time of Fernando in power.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

At dawn of 07 July 2022, the Government of Roschfallen under Benjamin Azoulay, offered the throne of the country to the Prince Theo of Ebenthal without consent of Karno-Ruthenian government. This generated a diplomatic crisis between Roschfallen, Karnia-Ruthenia and Ebenthal since, according to the Treaty of Viden signed between the heads of state of the three countries on July 2021, Roschfallen was part from the sphere of influence of Karnia-Ruthenia, known as the Imperial Circle and such an offer of the throne made by the Regent of Roschfallen to a Prince of Ebenthal could theoretically violate the treaty.

Eventually, Ebenthal and Karnia-Ruthenia signed the Resolution of Santiago of Sacramento on 15 July 2022, mediated by the King of Quinta Velha as Secretary-General of the Conference of Santiago solving the problem and basically dissolving the treaty regarding the accession of Roschfallen under Karno-Ruthenian control under the compensation of one million Ebenthali Kupfermarks.
