Also it was the home of the supreme Pontiff of Terra Mariana.
The town of Siauliai was founded on March 15 2019 by player named Alan_Lime. At first the town was not much but a small town in the western part of the Baltic States, upon its creation it was part of The Kingdom of Terra Mariana which was a vassal state of a bigger nation at the time called Minskan Rus. After the independence of Terra Mariana from Minskan Rus which renamed itself to Intermarium, Siauliai great expansion began.
The great expansion
Siauliai after Terra Mariana's independence started expanding, eventually Siauliai began bordering Arensburg. This marked the start the great expansion of Siauliai. It began when Alan_Lime built a wall separating Terra Mariana from White Russian town Viking city's expansion, the wall was claimed but since it was a long claim it was reported as claim blocking and eventually was unclaimed by a mod. After the wall was unclaimed expansion was very slow almost to a halt.
After a month lots of things had changed around Siauliai, Terra Mariana's and Lithuanian relations turned for the worst due to border disputes, and after few days of mining and voting Alan_Lime collected enough gold to expand and claim the gaps between the neighbouring towns. Siauliai became larger than it ever was and it marked the end of the great expansion of Siauliai.
Inner and outer Siauliai
After the expansion ended the claims outside the wall were walled up and cut Siauliai into Inner and outer parts. The outer part bordered a Lithuanian town, which did not like the claims that Siauliai has got so border skirmishes began between two town mayors and their guards, eventually fighting calmed but the tensions are till this very day. But in other words Siauliai still remains one of the oldest towns in Terra Mariana by so being a cultural center of the nation.
