Planetary Geography[edit]

New Aragon is an agricultural world which resides in near core of the Inner Sphere, anti-spinward of Terra. New Aragon has two continents, Dreymon and Glastonbury.[1]

Noteable Locations[edit]

  • Argo - Planetary Capital of New Aragon, located on Glastonbury.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

Colonized in the twenty-third century, New Aragon was settled as the result of a massive scam in what became known as one of the saddest chapters in the historical records of the massive waves of settlement and colonization that went on during the Exodus. Those running the scam sold New Aragon to the settlers on the basis of claims that it was a world blessed with abundant water and fertile land; when the colonists arrived, they discovered that both continents on New Aragon were primarily swampland, and just to make matters worse, that swampland was invested with insect-like lifeforms that carried innumerable diseases.[1]

Despite the challenges faced by the settlers they persevered, draining the swampland to gain access to the dynamically fertile land beneath the various swamps. The recovered land proved capable of supporting a large farming population, and New Aragon prospered; among the various native species that the colonists kept to farm were a number of amphibian life-forms kept in "frog-farm" preserves and which gained the status of interstellar gourmet items. New Aragon also invested in medical research and became known as a leading center for research in the field; the New Aragon Institute of Epidemiology - established in the capital of Argos on Glastonbury - became known as one of the Inner Sphere's leading medical research facilities.[1]

Davion Invasion of 2930[edit]

In 2930, the First Avalon Hussars RCT, led by Heir-apparent Field Marshal Peter Davion, invaded New Aragon as part of his new offensive, codenamed Roland’s Horn. The three-regiment formation caught the New Aragon defenders by complete surprise with their invasion, breaching the Armistice of Van Diemen IV. The Liao forces defending the planet were under orders from Chancellor Merlin Liao to withdraw to perserve their forces.[42]

Under the governorship Hanse Davion[edit]

Briefly between the years of 3011 to 3013, Field Marshal Hanse Davion was appointed by his brother, First Prince Ian Davion, as military Governor of the planet. At the time, New Aragon's politic climate was tremendous and its population was hostile to House Davion's presence on their world. Hanse Davion moved to rebuild the planet's infrastructure while he cut his teeth on politics in New Aragon's political climate.[43] It was on New Aragon that Hanse earned his nickname of "the Fox", restoring order and in doing so gained the staunch devotion of the local population. New Aragon would remain fiercely loyal to House Davion from that point onwards.[1]

The Jihad[edit]

In the last two weeks of October 3069[34] New Aragon was conquered by the WoB's Twenty-second Division and added to the growing population of the Word of Blake Protectorate. During the battle for the planet, the Twenty-second Division resorted to chemical agents to clear out the defenders who were entrenched in an ancient fortress on planet.[44] The Blakists used chemicals so liberally as they dug the defending forces out of the old Star League-era fortresses of McMichael and Ellison that the agriculture industry for which New Aragon was known was almost destroyed. The contamination on Glastonbury was the most extensive; the Blakists contaminated the largest river on the continent, the Graham River, so badly that it destroyed the ecosystem of the entire continent.[1]

Media sources within the Capellan Confederation claimed that New Aragon had been liberated and rejoined the Confederation by the end of February 3077.[45]
