The Freehold of the Wolves (FTW) is an Absolute Monarchy and the number four alliance in Cyber Nations. It is the largest and one of the sanctioned alliances on White Team. FTW remains one of the 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 and 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.
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 and ODN. As well as an ODoAP with Nordreich (2nd), and SNX before unexpectedly resigning from the post in December 2017.
In the months that followed Maegor's resignation, FTW was being led by a temporary government of Canik, Taco, and The Dark Lord Sauron, who served as the Beta Wolf to Canik's Alpha during the Fellowship of the Wolves.
The Mad King!
In March 2018, Canik took control of the FTW's government and declared himself King. He appointed Taco as Hand of the King, The Dark Lord Sauron as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Joseph 'Muddog' Black as Minister of Internal Affairs, Daario Naharris as Minister of Military Affairs, and Smitty256 as Minister of Harmony.
In April 2018, after Kashmir raided Supernova X during the Second NpO-SNX War, FTW declared war on Kasmir, which was followed shortly after by COBRA declaring war on FTW. The war ended in white peace 5 days later.
On June 6th, 2018, the FTW surpassed 10,000,000 NS! 1,000,000 Tech! & 100+ members
On September 21st, 2018, FTW declared war on COBRA after a perceived hostility towards Canik from General Kanabis, then King of COBRA. Supernova X as well as the alliance CLAWS had joined FTW in declaring on COBRA. The war lasted until November 17th, 2018 when it ended in white peace.

On March 16th, 2019, COBRA declared war on FTW after failed negotiations from a raid on FTW's protectorate ANiMaLz. This was shortly followed by Kashmir, The Imperial Entente (TIE), SRA, and Sellswords, known as the COBRA Coalition, all declaring war on FTW. RFI responded by declaring war on COBRA, The Legion declaring war on Kashmir, Argent declaring on SRA, and LoSS declaring on Sellswords, TIE, and COBRA. The war ended on August 10th, 2019 when the COBRA Coalition admitted defeat to FTW and RFI.
On March 20th, 2019, when the war with the COBRA Coalition was breaking out, Non Grata raided FTW.
