Império dos Nobres

The official name of this empire is Empire of recognition and beneficence, and in 1760 was erected in memory of the volcano eruption of Cabeço do Fogo, which occurred in April 24, 1672. It is believed to be the first empire built of stone and lime, as opposed to improvised empires that were until then.
