History of the Ardougnan Military

The Ardougnan Military started out as nothing more then a ragtag of farmers, mercenaries, knights, and volunteers who rallied under a single flag to secure the Kandar land from Zamorakian influence. In the time since, they have evolved, developed and become one of the best trained, and well-funded militaries in all of Gielinor. In junction with the Yanillian Military, the Kandarin Coalition is always a sight to behold. Rangers making up the sword, and the Ardougnian Knights the shield. The normal operation of the two is Yanillian Rangers spearheading the assault, with the Ardougnan Knights coming in to reinforce and deal with the bulk of the enemy military.

Though Ardougne has a history spanning back to the Second Age, the first true Ardougnan military was formed in the Fourth Age. In what is commonly referred to as the "Dreaded Years of Tragedy," zamorakian magi terrorized what was then the small town of Ardougne. Eventually, the small town grew fed up with the mages, and a militia was formed to march on the Zamorakian Worshippers. In a tragic turn of events however, both sides were annihilated leaving only the leaders. While neither side was truly victorious, this event still marked the first rise of the Ardougnan Military which the modern forces pay homage to.

During the many years following the first rise of the Ardougne, many rulers have sat in the throne, each giving a small advancement to their forces, from Russia to the reign of King Vectis I. For the longest time, the military was only known as the Knights of Ardougne, whom wore a armor similar to the White Knights. As armor production advanced, the knights were given a newer, more powerful set of armor. Recruitment restrictions were lessened. The knights were eventually dissolved and became the basis for the new Kandarin Armed Forces.
