Little Ruthenia (county)

Part of the Kingdom of Hungary, the County of Little Ruthenia is a fortified Captaincy on the border of the Transylvania. It lies on the Tisza River, defending the important trade route between the Hungarian Plain and Eastern Poland.

The county has a total area of 0.3 hexes, with a density of 44,906 persons per hex. It is bordered on the south by the Principality of Transylvania and on the north by the Principality of Ruthenia. It has a population of 13,472.


The region has been part of Hungary since the arrival of Prince Arpad in 896. Sihota was founded in the mid-11th century. It was made a County in 1352.

After the Battle of Mohacs, Sihota was seiged repeatedly by Transylvanian princes, bent on taking the town, starting with John Zapolya in 1528. After 1540, the town came under direct control of the Habsburgs and Poles, whereupon it was made into a military Captaincy. There is a large civilian population.



Little Ruthenia possesses a sustenance-based economy and produces no marketable goods.
