Ravaxa (Ravaxa (Vaka script)) is the capital city of the Ixara, and the largest city in Ixania. A few miles from this city are the Great Plains of Ixara, and to the northeast, Mount Ixara. Do to its strategic location, the city was the site of many major battles in Ixania's past, one of them being the Ninth Battle of Ravaxa, which took place just outside of the city itself. Ravaxa was located on the border between the kingdoms of the Xona and Xani, serving as a crossroads between the two after the Seven Centuries' War. Because of this, the city has much cultural diversity from both ethnic groups. At the time of its founding, Ravaxa was the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Xonia from 117 BC to 624 AD.

History

Early History

Ravaxa was originally founded as a small fortified settlement by the Xona people in 241 BCE at the stragetically located mountain valley running through the center of Xivon connecting the east to the west. The city of Ravaxa though it grew to importance as trade with the Xani to the north and west grew. The city was never home to more than 1,500 people following its establishment, but grew to prominence during the Seven Centuries' War in 117 BC. The location of Ravaxa on the main island led to it being highly contested during the full course of the war. The city's role as the capital of the Xona kingdom made it even more important as a target, and numerous sieges were launched with the goal of capturing and re-capturing the city.

Several major battles were fought inside and around the city, with the famous Ninth Battle of Ravaxa serving to contribute to bringing the long war to an end by 624 AD. The city was designated the capital of the newly formed Honorable Union of Ixania, but it was superceded by Xanza as the new capital of Ixania. It was later chosen to serve as the capital of the Ixara Province in 630. The city grew to have a population of 45,000 people by 700 AD, and was the largest city in Ixania. In 846, Tazen Varsha Xa-Vekan moved the imperial court back to Ravaxa seeking to establish his dynasty there, which lasted for only two decades following the murder of his son and successor, Varsha Xa-Ievan, in 863.
