The Freehold of the Wolves (FTW) is an absolute monarchy & Game of Thrones themed alliance in Cyber Nations. It is the largest and only sanctioned alliance on White Team. It is also the 3rd largest alliance in CN. FTW remains one of the most premier alliances in Cyber Nations since its founding in October 2017.
Its members are known as Valyrian Wolves and each Valyrian Wolf is a member of the Tribunal. FTW prides itself in the fact that we have one of the strongest lower-tier of nations in the entire game.
The King of the Freehold of the Wolves is Dark Lord Sauron, who previously served as a shaman in Fellowship of the Wolves, and then as Lord of State, before becoming Regent of FTW, and then finally King. He has control of all functions of the government.
On October 25th, 2017, the alliances of The Freehold and the Fellowship of the Wolves agreed to merge and become the Freehold of The Wolves (FTW). The Freehold was previously led by the Diadoch, Maegor, and the Fellowship of the Wolves was previously led by the Alpha Wolf, Canik.
FTW is an amalgamation of several different alliance mergers. FTW's core membership comes from FEAR, Wolfpack, The Ironborn, The Mages Guild, The Mechanicus, Supernova X, ANiMaLz, & LoSS. FTW is one of the only alliances that is built mostly on mergers and come out successful.
When FTW was founded it was decided that the alliance would be led by a Triumvirate. The Triumvirs would be the Triumvir of Foreign Affairs, Triumvir of Internal Affairs, and the Triumvir of Military affairs. The Triumvirate was made up of Maegor for Foreign Affairs, Canik for Military Affairs, and Pjk11 (Taco) for Internal Affairs. Pjk11 (Taco) had previously led the alliance Aevrum before it merged into Fellowship of the Wolves.
As the Triumvir of Foreign Affairs, Maegor, was able to sign an MnDoAP with IRON, & ODN. As well as an ODoAP with Nordreich (2nd), and SNX before unexpectedly resigning from the position in December 2017.
In the months that followed Maegor's resignation, FTW was being led by a temporary government of Canik, Taco, and Dark Lord Sauron, who served as Shaman in the Fellowship of the Wolves.
