AIN: Worldbuilding 2

Queen of the opposing kingdom of the Snowden kingdom is named after the greek goddess, Athena. Goddess of Wisdom and War, I found this name fitting because in my story she was wise enough to see the benefits to end the war between the kingdoms of Nicosia and Snowden. I chose to name the land of which reigns after Cyprus’s capital because in the story their climates are similar and Cypriots speak Greek. Which ties into the name Athena which is a goddess, of an ancient greek religion. And naming her family name; Cypriot, after a country’s demonym keeps with the with the theme I created for the Welsh. I was inspired to write a powerful woman and a society which has different ruling method.
