The Imbroglio Era
The Syvian Empire and Unknown Emirs
- The history of this has been lost to time.
Lord Kullin Webb
- Kullin Webb acquired Al Kharid from an Emir whose name has been lost to time.
- During the first few days of Webb's reign, his regime participates in a large scale conflict known as World War II with his soldiers aiding Jedi Rystar's knights in Lumbridge. The battle ends with the death of a figure named Katsu.
- Due to the involvement of Webb's soldiers, Aztarwyn, a future ruler of Al Kharid, and his army attack and burn Al Kharid to the ground. A day later, Aztarwyn warns Webb to stay out of his way.
- Webb spends the rest of his reign on a relief effort to repair the damage done to Al Kharid.
- After the reconstruction Webb's reign ends with his death at the hands of Eden Syvian. Webb was buried in Falador Park, which happened to be ruled by Aztarwyn during his reign over Falador.
Lord Eden Syvian
- Eden's reign was focused on trying to rebuild Syvian Empire.
- After his goal failed to come to fruition. He abdicated the throne to a man named Zenthos and headed to Ardougne to serve a ruler called Russia.
- Zenthos's rule of Al Kharid was carried out from Camelot. Nothing remarkable took place during this time.
- Dalkal Stord is granted Al Kharid from Emperor Zenthos Daemor of Camelot.
- A few members of the Genic family, such as Pidog Genic and Holly Genic's branch of the family, move there.
1st Protectorate Era
- Dalkal Stord is murdered. His murderer mysteriously delivers a letter from Dalkal to the Genic Family, led by ex-Prince Path O. Genic of Misthalin, who Dalkal had been closely affiliated with in the past, with the deed of Al Kharid.
- Shortly after receiving Al Kharid, Path, along with the Genic Family's soldiers and other employees, move to Al Kharid.
- This begins Path's reign of ten years over Al Kharid. During this time, the city was peaceful and quiet most of the time.
- After Emma Genic was kidnapped by the twin brother of Kenny Lysander, a mercenary hired by the Genic Family, by impersonating Kenny, Saric, another mercenary employed by the Genics, gets mysteriously shot and almost dies. Path tried to tell Holly J., his daughter-in-law and Emma's mother, to help care for Saric, but she was busy talking with Kenny about how to tell him and his twin brother apart. Holly J. was charged with "assisted attempted murder" and given the punishment of not allowing to be alone with her daughter because she "might forget about her and leave her somewhere". She felt that this was unjust, so she ran away from home and took Emma with her. Path sent all of his soldiers, mercenaries, and employees on a hunt for Holly J. and Emma. Eventually, Holly J. decided to return to Al Kharid and face Path. Upon her return, she and Saric almost got into a fight, so Path fired Saric.
- Shortly after John Altus became the Duke of Lumbridge, he proposed a merge to Al Kharid. The Genics felt that this would be a bad move for them, so they rejected the merge.
- Not too long later, John Altus declared war on Al Kharid and called his many allies for aid in an attempt to take over Al Kharid. Holly J. contacted Queen Gwyn of Ardougne, an ally of the Genics, for aid. Ardougne sent soldiers over to Lumbridge in order to make peace with John Altus. John trapped Ardougne's soldiers in Lumbridge Castle so they couldn't help Al Kharid, causing a big battle to occur. Shortly after this battle, John committed suicide to end the war when he regretted starting it.
- The Genic Family expanded their territory by claiming Pollnivneach after their allies, Lord Toner, and the Arvens, left the city. Path gave the position of Duke to his younger brother, Lee Genic.
- After Holly J. took an egg from a green dragon's nest and adopted the dragon as a pet after he hatched, his mother tracked her down in Al Kharid, angry at her. She destroyed the palace and a couple of houses. Bruce Clough and the Vigilis Cruor came to the rescue, and slayed the dragon.
- Pidog Genic, Path's younger son who was the heir to the throne, had a growing hostility against Path because Path never paid attention to him when he was a child, and he had been gone for many years until around when Pidog married Holly J. This led to Pidog starting a rebellion, based at his new mansion in Kandarin, as an attempt to overthrow Path.
- Upon finding out about Pidog's intentions, Holly J. found Path in Pollnivneach and warned him that Pidog was plotting to rebel and overthrow Path. As a result, Path took away Pidog's spot in the line of succession, making his older brother, Dillon, become the new heir. The cold war ended when Path and Pidog made up.
- An assassin for the Genic Family, Toshiro, 'died', leaving his son to Holly J. He was banished from the kingdom after he hooked up with Path's daughter, Marie. After Holly J. moved to Pidog's mansion, Toshiro illegally lived in their old house. One of the Genic soldiers, Valerian Ashford, burned down their house and chased them out of their mansion. As a punishment, Path wounded him.
- The Genics began to collapse, resulting in Path faking their death so no one would attack them. (Meanwhile, Pidog and Holly J. broke off from the family and took Holly J.'s maiden name, Blakan.)
- When the Genics pretended to die out, Path left Al Kharid and Pollnivneach to Emperor Joseph Adalhard of the Holy Asgarnian Empire.
Emperor Joseph (Holy Asgarnian Empire)
- Path, of the Genics' became good friends with Emperor Joseph. Upon his mysterious disappearance he left him all of his land. This included Al-Kharid and Pollnivneach.
- Emperor Joseph sets up regents who control the land until he abandons to secure his borders in Asgarnia.
- Joseph and his allies flee the region, they also give Misthalin in the process.
- After the Sarimian Empire pulls out of their desert lands, a local nobleman/guard named Kharo Kharis takes the throne to run the Kingdom of Al Kharid and Pollnivneach. During his reign, the population and size of the military are a bit lower than usual...
- Not many things significant happened, besides King Kharo meeting The Forgotten Prince, Aeron Genic, son of former Emir Path, and archaelogists studying artifacts in the throne room.
- Praetor Henrik of the Vigilis Cruor breeches the palace and kills King Kharo, taking Pollnivneach for the Cruor and negotiating giving Al Kharid to Lumbridge.
Dominus Bruce Clough(Vigilis Cruor)
- The Cruor captures Al-Kharid after assassinating King Kharo.

- The deal is made, with Cruor still owning Pollniveach and Eyvind given Al-Kharid.

- Nothing particularly interesting happens, and Corvus hands leadership over to his relative, Ulrich.
Duke Ulrich Cross

- Ulrich breaks off from the Commonwealth, forming the Kingdom of Kharadia with Al Kharid, Pollnivneach, and Nardah.
- Ulrich becomes King of Falador due to the deaths of King Corvus and Prince Thomas, so he appoints his 17-year-old niece, Emma, as Duchess of Al Kharid.
Duchess Emma Bloikon
- Emma, after previously being a princess of Al Kharid from the rule of Path O. Genic, her step-grandfather, becomes Duchess of Al Kharid, ruling Al Kharid under her uncle's kingdom. Her husband, Joe Bloikon, serves as Duke of Al Kharid.
- Soon after, some sketchy business happens between Ulrich and Dion Magnan that lead him to lose Falador.
- Ulrich disappears not too long after that, leading Emma to take the leadership of Kharadia. The population and military size shrink, causing the kingdom to slow down.
- The Gonzo Civil War takes to Al Kharid, with Aztarwyn's daughter, Emma's best friend Rachel, being held in Al Kharid with Bruce Clough protecting them. Emma has citizens evacuated before the battle begins. Bruce drives Aztarwyn out of Al Kharid, ending the battle. Emma allows Rachel and Bruce to live in the palace.
- Elliot Altus, the military commander of the Duchy of Lumbridge, ruled by Duke Filis Aerendyl, proposes a merge with Emma that would make Filis the King of Lumbridge and Northern Kharidia, and Emma the Grand Duchess of Northern Kharidia.
- Due to the kingdom's problems with people leaving from the leadership change, and some pressure from Aztarwyn, Emma's biggest enemy, Emma accepts the merge a few days or so later.
- Right after Emma signs the agreement for the merge, she hears her 2-year-old son, Blake, screaming. It is discovered that her husband, Duke Joe Bloikon, suddenly died (From leukemia that he had a year before recurring after it had been treated by Prince Thomas).
- Luxn Boar of Rimmington invades Lumbridge soon after the merge, taking it over.
- King Filis is captured and taken to Witchhaven to be held for a ransom of 2 million gold pieces and other expensive trinkets.

- Emma discovers that she is carrying Joe's child soon before he dies.
King Filis & Queen Emma
- Following Joe Bloikon's funeral, Filis and Emma are wed at the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede, making both of them monarchs. Emma's son, Blake, is placed at the beginning of the line of succession as the Crown Prince.
- Emma's water breaks soon after the wedding, so she is taken into one of the rooms of the abbey where Filis delivers her baby. It turns out to be a girl, so Emma names her Elizabeth. Elliot recommends that they raise Elizabeth to think that Filis is her father, so she receives the Aerendyl last name.
- King Filis and Queen Emma claim Sophanem soon after their marriage, forming the Kingdom of Kharidia.
- A foreign mob and the Ardougnan Army are aggressive at the Palace towards a member of the Royal Family, sparking a short battle ending in Ardougnan retreat. King Oliver of Ardougne pays two million coins in reparations.
- At some point, Queen Emma decides to take a leave to go spend time with her mother. King Filis goes on a leave to go to the God Wars Dungeon, putting Eden Syvian in-charge temporarily.
- Queen Emma returns half a year before Filis does, resuming rule of the kingdom by herself.
- She appoints her younger sister, Taylor Genic, as Duchess of Pollnivneach.
- Path O. Genic, the former Emir of Al Kharid and Pollnivneach, offers to buy Sophanem, which had become a ghost town, from Emma in order to repopulate it. She sells it for 1.1 million gold coins.
- Some more things happen here, to be added later.
- Soon after Filis returns, he and Queen Emma decide to go on a date in order to start a romantic relationship in their marriage. Prince Gekido, Emma's adopted cousin who secretly had a crush on her, having Ulrich adopt him to bring him closer to Emma, uses chaos magic to possess Filis, forcing him to ask Emma for a divorce. Emma makes Filis move out of the palace due to their separation.
- Emma becomes concerned with various people hating her and wanting to kill her, so she makes arrangements to send her son, Blake, and her daughter, Elizabeth, to Sophanem to live with Path under his protection and to learn combat from him. On the way out of Al Kharid, Path stops at a house, leaving them there while he needed to take care of something. Unsure of what to do then, they head back to the palace.
- Aztarwyn abducts Emma while she is getting attacked by a Mahjarrat, demanding that she gives him her kingdom or else he would kill her. She manages to get him to settle for Al Kharid, her capital.
- Tired of the pressure of ruling a kingdom, Queen Emma abdicates. Nardah declares independence as a result, concluding the dismantling of the Kingdom of Kharidia. Emma passes the throne of Pollnivneach, her only remaining city, to its duchess, Taylor Genic.

- Aztarwyn's men secured the city awhile after, in a fight that would mark a place in Das Kaiserreich history. The army displayed an impressive dominant assualt in the night-time, which started with the flares in the sky, cannons going off, archers sniping border patrol, and the overall battle within the city.

- The Khanum rejected former Sultan Feroze's request to assist the Khanate.
- Amnesty was given to all who took part in the mighty riot that took hold in Al Kharid by the Khanum.
- One of her first acts as Khanum was to redraw Al Kharid's claims. With the lack of manpower, Al Kharid could no longer afford to maintain such a grasp on the Kharid. The Khanate's claims would simply be the City itself and the north and south mining areas in the Kharid.

- Vizier Ali Bambolsa III was found guilty of corruption after a money laundering scheme is exposed. He was sentenced to death by being forced to eat an entire cactus.
