History of Hennemark[]

The first historical record of the city came around in 1328, when an explorer named Bertrand du Polant found what he called a 'paradise on earth, with unbounding tolerance, love and kindness for one another, yet there is to be found bravery, courage and prowess, the qualities found in the menfolk would make all fathers proud.'. The city provided mercenaries to other kingdoms from 1335 onwards until 1764, when the other kingdoms formed standing armies.

In 1885, the June Revolution broke out and a massive street battle was fought between republican rioters and monarchist crowds and much of the city was damaged and many were injured and killed on both sides. Eventually, the military stepped in to crush the republican riot.

The military played a big role in hastening the fall of the monarchy in 1910. The army felt that the current monarch King Ignacio II was making a mess out of the country, and desperate to save it, they stormed the Steinberg-Mosauwitz Palace and held the king and his family hostage. Ignacio resigned soon afterwards.

They all share the same stadium, the Ofnir Arena, after the legendary Ofnir Squadron of ages past, which has a capacity of 25,000.
