The Island Of Rothlo is a nation led by Emperor Robert IV located in the north of the Mediterranean Sea on the continent of Europe. The Island Of Rothlo's government is a Monarchy with very liberal social policies. Economically, The Island Of Rothlo favors far left wing policies. It gained Independence on 5th February 2016 and became it's own independent nation.
Rothlo is a nation of rich and complicated history. The island was uninhabited for most of its history, the earliest recordings of permanent settlers date back to around 200 AD, where beforehand it had only been used as a geographical landmark and stopping point for boats and ships traveling in the Mediterranean Sea. It had been claimed by both France and Italy but neither disputed over the island as it served no purpose or benefit at the time.
The original settlers came over from Italy and France around the same period wanting to start fresh and seek wealth. Over the years the settlers integrated into one culture and lost all senses of previous nationality. They had no distinct leader or laws but surprisingly the people remained civilised. The settlers called the island 'Rothe' (pronounced 'rof') and called themselves 'Rothes' (pronounced 'rofs')to help distance themselves from their previous lives.
As the population grew the richest on the island naturally became the most powerful, these people were the first known leaders of Rothe. Among these was Robert (Surnames weren't common until around the 11th century). He stood out from the rest
All was good until 5
