Trollington upon Sandrina is a city and metropolitan area in the Saint Justinian province, in the United Federal Kingdom of St. Samuel. Situated on the north bank of the River Sandrina, the city developed from a Lillian settlement called Pons Eliustria, though it owes its name to the castle built in 703 BP, by Lord Roberto Trollington. The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade and it later became a major coal mining area. The port developed during the 200's BP, along with the shipyards lower down the river. The city was amongst the world's largest shipbuilding and ship-repairing centres. These industries have since demised, and the city is largely a business and cultural centre, particularly through it reputation for nightlife.

Trollington is perceived as a working class city, with a smaller middle class population than the St. Samuel average. Among its main icons are Royal Trollington Ale, a leading brand of beer, Trollington FC, a RSSFA Division 2 football team, and the Sandrintine Bridge.

HistoryEdit

The first settlement in what is now Trollington was Pons Eliustria, a Lillian fort and bridge across the River Sandrina, founded it in the 1836 BP. The population of Pons Eliustria at this period was estimated at 2,000. In 1013 BP, a wooden castle was built in the city by Lord Tristan Trollington and the town was henceforth known as Novum Trollington.

From 200 BP a royal act restricted all shipments of coal from Saint Justinian to Trollington Quayside, giving a monopoly in the coal trade to a cartel of Trollington burgesses. This monopoly, which lasted for a considerable time, helped Trollington prosper. In the Solomangate area, to the east of the city and beside the river, resided the close-knit community of keelmen and their families. They were so called because they worked on the keels (boats) that were used to transfer coal from the river banks to the waiting colliers, for export to Francisco and elsewhere. Trollington's development as a major city, owed most to it's growth from the export of coal. In the 100's AP, shipbuilding and heavy engineering were central to the city's prosperity; and the city became a powerhouse.
