According to legend, there was a period between 600 BC and 500 BC, in which an Alliance was formed between twelve Etruscan settlements, known today as the Etruscan League, Etruscan Federation, or Dodecapoli. The Etruscan League of 12 cities was founded by two Lydian noblemen: Tarchon and his brother Tyrrhenus. Tarchon lent his name to the city of Tarchna, or Tarquinnii, as it was known by the Romans. Tyrrhenus gave his name to the Tyrrhenians - the alternative name for the Etruscans. The league was mostly an economic and religious league, or a loose confederation, similar to the Greek states. During the later imperial times when Etruria was just one of many regions controlled by Rome, the number of cities in the league increased by three. According to Livy, the twelve city states met once a year at the Fanum Voltumnae at Volsinii, where a leader was chosen to represent the league.
Tyrrhenus was one of the founders of the Etruscan League of twelve cities, along with his brother Tarchon. Herodotus describes him as the saver of the Etruscans, because he led them from Lydia to Etruria. His name was given to the Etruscan people by the Greeks.
Dawn of Man
Blessings and salutations to you, revered Tyrrhenus, savior of the Etruscans. Your original homeland, Lydia, had been ravaged by floods when you led your people into the northern Italian Peninsula, where would become to be known as Etruria. There, together with your brother Tarchon, you founded the Etruscan League of Twelve Cities, uniting the twelve greatest Etruscan city states.
Oh great Tyrrhenus, for too long have your people been forgotten to the ages! Will you answer the divine call, and reunite your people once more? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?Introduction: I've travelled many lands, but never seen anything quite like you! From where did you come? Here, let me show you my city.
Defeat: Did the gods have forsaken us? No... You will soon feel their wrath, I'm sure of it!
