About this blog

Essentially I tell the story of Troy in a series of small stories, essentially scenes that I may eventually compile into a full sized story.

Troy

Unlike Canterlot, Troy's founding was not surrounded by pomp nor circumstance, but rather dust and tents. A humble beginning to a reserved nation. There is much doubt and debate as to the official date that Troy changed from a Camel owned oasis to an Equestrian territory, and some would argue that it is still, at least in part, a camel owned oasis. Nonetheless, the date of Troys founding was close enough to the date of the revolution that the celebration has since been a combined remembrance of

Democracy

While the concept of public rule existed in many nations before the founding of Troy, democracy as we know it now has its roots in the dealings that took place for the approval of the Trojan province. While Princess Celestia is credited with officially proposing it, recent findings corroborate Trojan tradition that the governmental system was Princess Luna's idea from the beginning. The proposed form of government served as a combination of tribal leadership such as found among Thestrals and the

Red Red Rose

While the Noble family of Rose did not feature prominently into the history of Troy, their descendants include none other than the Bearer of Vengeance, as such I thought it proper to include their rise to power in this brief story centered on the prominent matriarch of the family. Red Red Rose was born in the city of Everfree, which surrounded the Castle of the Two Sisters until it was overtaken by the forest of the same name. Similar to Trojan Horse records are incomplete for the time period an

Canterlot

There are few even among scholars of Trojan history that have come to understand the true depth of the relationship between Canterlot and Troy. Many are simply content to label them as rivals, given their respective nations were such, and thus lose the more basic nature of their relationship. As many forget, Canterlot was not always the capital of Equestria. It only became the capital a few years after Nightmare Moon, when Princess Celestia decided to abandon the old capital in the wake of the t

Mare Grace

Of course, no history of Troy or Trojan Horse would be complete without his counterpart and wife Mare Grace. Despite the norms of the time she rose to be a prominent figure in history, an equal in all respects to Trojan himself. Her past is a bit better known than Trojan's, given her rather prestigious upbringing under the famous Lord Rasputin Stalliongrad, the very same featured in countless works of theater and the subject of speculation by many historians. Through my own research into her fam

Trojan Horse

If one is to understand the circumstances surrounding the founding of Troy, one must first know its founder, Trojan Horse. Records from this period are difficult to come by, but reliable sources indicate that Trojan Horse was born approximately 130 years before the first occurrence of Nightmare Moon... Stalliongrad, 105 BNMM Trojan Horse stood in front of his unassuming office space on a side street that led to one of the local markets. Despite the rather substantial success he had had

A Preface

Hello, and welcome! I am Play Write, and I have taken it upon myself to compile a collection of the stories that made up the history of our great nation. Rather than present this history in a plain and uninteresting manner, I have sought out through journals and family accounts the personal stories of those who directly witnessed the events. Whether you're new to Troy, simply passing through, or looking to move in, I hope that this book will serve you well. I would like to offer a
