Founding Year[edit]

Changed the founding year to unknown even if it's listed in the Touring the Stars pdf. The date in that pdf is definitely wrong; according to Handbook: House Marik, the Duchy of Andurien already existed in the 26th century.

But we don't ultimately know when it was properly incorporated as a Duchy. It was a certain bunch of worlds contested between the CapCon and FWL, but initially House Humphreys was only installed as governors, not by the title od Duke.
I haven't checked the references yet but I suspect that the year may be correct and earlier mentions only refer to a region of space/group of systems that was somehow understood to belong together but wasn't a Duchy yet. So "Andurien" in the sense of "the political body that had existed for some time already and would later become the Duchy of Andurien". Frabby (talk) 02:26, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
