Magi from the Order of Hermes fought a number of battles over the island and its vis sources until the Year 845. In that year a special tribunal made up of delegates from the three neighboring tribunals of Stonehenge, Hibernian, and Loch Leglean issued the Partitio Monaviae. This document declares that the island should remain neutral until such a time as a covenant is established for period of 33 years and 3 days. At that point the island would become a part of whatever Tribunal the newly founded covenant was part of. The island and its resources would belong the newly founded covenant.
Until now, no tribunal has been able to succeed at this.
