The Moravian Empire (Czech: Morava Říše; German: Mährisch Reich; Italian: Impero Moravo) was an empire founded in 1495 from a political split between states of the Swabian Empire. The empire established itself as a more permanent entity after the ruling class of the country consolidated itself into a hereditary monarchy, making the possibility of reunification with the Swabian Empire unlikely. The Moravian Empire reached the height of its territorial control in 1800 when it annexed the Union of Borgosesia and Borgosesian Galkayo.
The absorption of the Union of Borgosesia into the Moravian Empire officially commenced with the Borgosesian Revolution, which lasted from 1785 to 1800. The revolution was fought primarily by liberals fighting for a representative republic and supporters of the monarchy that had ruled the Union of Borgosesia for centuries prior. With the war turning towards the side of the republicans by 1789, the duchies of Borgosesia and the Catholic Church (then based in Valsesia) agreed to seek out aid from Moravia. Federico V, the heir to the Borgosesian throne, served as an emissary to Moravia to plead the case of Borgosesian integration into the Moravian Empire.
In 1800, the request to join Moravia was approved, and Moravian troops entered the country to crush the republican rebellion. Federico V was declared the Archduke of Borgosesia, with the remaining duchies retaining power under the Archduke. Borgosesia lost the right to a legislature of national autonomy, but the emperor and legislature in Kralové granted the Borgosesian archduke and colonial governors exceptional freedom in how Borgosesia and Galkayo was governed.
