Planetary History[edit]

Davion Civil War[edit]

After the Davion Civil War, Meglan was renamed Victoria by the victorious First Prince Alexander Davion.[36] Later, Alexander granted the Duchy of Victoria to his second son, Roger. The so-called "Victoria Davions" became the most prominent of House Davion's branches, with many reaching high rank in the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns,[37] such as Yvonne[38] and Jackson.[39]

First Succession War[edit]

In 2795, following the appointment of Sandol Quinn as regent to Ilsa Liao, the Capellan Confederation Armed Forces launched an invasion of the Federated Suns intended to capture the politically significant Chesterton system. Planned by Quinn, the operation was intended to take advantage of the AFFS' continuing focus on trying to resist the massive Draconis Combine invasion, which stood poised to capture New Avalon itself. Quinn's plan involved encircling Chesterton by taking the systems around it, using mercenary units for the initial invasions—predominantly or exclusively former Star League Defense Force commands that had been recruited by the Confederation—and following up with CCAF line regiments to reinforce the assault and then secure the captured worlds. Whilst launching one or two planetary invasions aimed at systems around Chesterton, Quinn also had the CCAF copy tactics used by the Combine so effectively, leapfrogging over border systems to capture a number of systems further inside the Federated Suns to add pressure to the AFFS. Quinn's strategy worked well for several years; by 2797, the CCAF had occupied Victoria, as well the Branzoll, Carmacks, Ogilvie, Salem, and Sekulmun, creating Capellan "islands" within the borders of the Federated Suns that forced the AFFS to spread its already-stretched border forces even more thinly at a critical time.[9]

Quinn never managed to secure Chesterton, however, and with the CCAF clashing with the Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery on a number of former Terran Hegemony worlds, Quinn withdrew his forces from Victoria and other isolated worlds nearby in late 2800 or early 2801.[10]

Dark Age[edit]

The Victoria Davions became the ruling family of the Federated Suns when Julian Davion became First Prince.[40]
