Ahlensteyn

Tue 3. Feb 2015, 20:32


  • In this thread I want to present all of my work I created for my fictional country Ahlensteyn. Some may still know from "somewhere else" that I have created tons of artwork about different stuff.

    So have a look here from time to time! :)

  • So far two different maps of the fictional Ahlensteyn, a geographical and a political one!

    Ahlensteyn itself is a small grand-duchy, located in Europe between Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
    It is governed by a Grand-Duke, currently this is Luitpold Wilhelm Friedrich III, the Ahlensteyn capital city is Sankt Wermen (St. Wermen).

  • It's been a while but I do remember this "topic". I haven't seen everything, though. So do keep posting.

  • Doing a bit or research, I found out that there's an actual family called Ahlenstein : 2 people known Christoph (born 1839) and Friedrich Ahlenstein (born 1832). but both emigrated to America in 1860. One of them had offsipring, because there's an Abe Ahlenstein, who married a Lena Zarofsky in 1911 in Manhattan.... However, that's about it.

    Given that Ahlensteyn is a more medieval way of writing Ahlenstein, ya might be able to make use of that.....

  • Thanks guys. And thanks Asragin, nice you examined history a bit, but well, let me tell you a bit more so far about ...

    Well, Ahlensteyn was founded in 1311 after the first Grand-Duke, Heinrich Karl I, fought for the independence of his land during 1303 to 1311. Before, Ahlensteyn, or better the areas later becoming the small country, were part of the Habsburg Empire since 1148, whereas this cannot be determined really exactly.

    All what is still known today for sure is that Leberecht I (1082-1166) was introduced as a so-called "Landwarth" (it can be translated as "land administrator") in 1148, but it is possible that Ahlensteyn was Habsburg territory even before.

    As said, Heinrich Karl I, son of Leberecht V who died in 1303, fought for Ahlensteyn's independence and was finally crowned in 1311 as the first Grand-Duke. Although officially 1311 is known as the year of Ahlensteyn's founding, some historians believe that the so-called "Liberation Wars" ended around 1316.

  • Okay, back to modern times.

    Here some additional maps, showing the capital cities of the so-called "Kapitars" (the administration units of Ahlensteyn), their dial numbers and their zip codes!

    By the way, Ahlensteyn's dial number is +00 424 ... :D

  • As there are also cars there, they need license plates ...

    At first two examples for front plates, then their reverse sides ...

    The first is a car from Sankt Wermen (City), and it had its last technical check in 2013.

    The second one is a car from Nauensteyn, with its last check in 2014.

  • Not so sure about front and back being so different, but that's maybe because i'm too used to the German system, where they're both about identical... I hear America and a few other nations have them almost completely different.

  • Well, the German system is a bit, well, let's say, boring.

    And the basic idea behind the different reverse patterns is, that there are all information like last technical check are collected, whereas the front side shows only the most needed infos like number and a barcode! In my imagination, the cops are able to scan this code with a special scanner to get all information about the car, or the car where the plate belongs to if it is stolen!

  • To make it a bit more interesting, there are also other plates.

    Here the ones for the Diplomatic Corps:
    "137 G" is the leading number for the DC, the following number is for the state the car belongs to (51 is the number for Germany), and the last number is the number of the car at all. The "0" always means it is the car of the actual ambassador.

    The pictured plate is the therefore the car of the German ambassador, and the car was licensed in Sankt Wermen (City) (the "01" on the front plate), the last technical check was in 2013! :D
