Personality

Dacia-icon Daciaball has uncommon political influence on its high priest, who is often able to make or break the authority of a ruler. In a way he was more of a theocracy than a kingdom.

His central God is Zalmoxis - God of immortality. He is so fanatical in Zalmoxis' worship that he thinks he is immortal forever and that he cannot really die, because if he dies he joins Zalmoxis.

This makes Dacia-icon Daciaball ferocious opponent as he has no fear of death. Herodotus noted that Dacia-icon Daciaball is the bravest of the Thracians.
“We have conquered even these Dacians, the most warlike of all people that have ever existed, not only because of the strength in their bodies, but, also due to the teachings of Zalmoxis who is among their most hailed. He has told them that in their hearts they do not die, but change their location and, due to this, they go to their deaths happier than on any other journey.”
―Emperor Trajan of SPQR-icon SPQRball

History

Dacia-icon Daciaball is an 2-icon Indo-European people. SPQR-icon SPQRball referred to them as "Daci" while Ancient Greece-icon Ancient Greeceball referred to them as "Getae".

The first mention of Dacia-icon Daciaball is under King Rubobostes in 168 B.C. although there are mentions of Dacian Tribes up to the 7th century B.C.

King Oroles successfully opposed the Bastarnae, blocking their invasion into Transylvania-icon Transylvaniaball. Due to an initial failure, King Oroles punished his soldiers into sleeping at their wives' feet and doing the household chores. Subsequently, the now "highly motivated" Dacian army defeated the Bastarnae and King Oroles lifted all sanctions.

King Burebista is the first king who unified all Dacian Tribes under Dacia-icon Daciaball. He is known for expanding Dacia-icon Daciaball's clay, destroying all vineyards to make his Soldiers more disciplined and for coming into conflict with SPQR-icon SPQRball.

At its height under King Burebista Dacia-icon Daciaball's clay included areas over Tisa, Danube and Dniester rivers. The Carpathian Mountains were in the middle of Dacia-icon Daciaball. Corresponding to the present day countries of Romania-icon Romaniaball and Moldova-icon Moldovaball, as well as parts of Ukraine-icon Ukraineball, Serbia-icon Serbiaball, Bulgaria-icon Bulgariaball, Slovakia-icon Slovakiaball, Hungary-icon Hungaryball and Poland-icon Polandball.

After King Burebista's death in 44 B.C. the kingdom was divided into four then five smaller kingdoms ruled by the religious elite and the Dacian activity was reduced into a defensive state. Despite this division, the related tribes of Dacia fought together whenever they were threatened by a foreign attack.

King Decebalus, the last King of Dacia, completly reunified all dacian kingdoms like Burebista before him. He then fought 3 wars with SPQR-icon SPQRball under 2 Emperors. In 89 A.D. he defeated a SPQR-icon SPQRball invasion in the reign of Emperor Domitian, forcing SPQR-icon SPQRball to pay tribute to Dacia-icon Daciaball in exchange for peace, as well as securing a period of independence during which Decebalus consolidated his rule.

When Emperor Trajan came to power in SPQR-icon SPQRball, he invaded Dacia-icon Daciaball again to end the shameful tribute that SPQR-icon SPQRball had to pay as well as rob Dacia-icon Daciaball as it was a rich kingdom, especially in gold. Decebalus was defeated in 102 A.D. but remained in power as a client king.

This victory is probably the darkest victory SPQR-icon SPQRball ever had, due to the crimes committed in Dacia-icon Daciaball, today he would be accused of genocide and crimes against hummanity.

Wanting to regain independence, Decebalus rebeled against SPQR-icon SPQRball in 105 but was defeated in 106 and Dacia-icon Daciaball was absorbed into SPQR-icon SPQRball. Decebalus committed suicide to avoid capture.

The capital of Dacia-icon Daciaball, Sarmizegetusa, located in modern Romania-icon Romaniaball, was destroyed by SPQR-icon SPQRball, but its name was added to that of the new city (Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa) built by the latter to serve as the capital of the Roman province of Dacia.

In 305, after becoming Emperor, Emperor Galerius affirmed his Dacian identity and exhibited anti-Roman attitude treating the Roman citizens with ruthless cruelty, like the conquerors treated the conquered, all in the name of the same treatment that the victorious Trajan had applied to the conquered Dacians, forefathers of Galerius, two centuries before, even proposing that the empire should be called, not the Roman, but the Dacian Empire, much to the horror of the patricians and senators. This didn't happen and he died in 311 due to a moral disease, possibly a form of cancer or gangrene.
