Solomani Autonomous Region: Area within the Imperium granted self-government through a charter from Empress Margaret I in 704. The charter granted control of the region of space within a radius of 50 parsecs of Terra (hence the name Solomani Sphere) to a Solomani governing body, which was given broad powers of authority.
For two hundred years, the Imperium effectively ignored the region and concentrated instead on its coreward frontiers.
By 940, Solomani oppression of non-human
(and non-Solomani) worlds forced Empress Margaret
II to revoke the region's charter. After years of diplomatic
proved fruitless, it was decided to forcibly reintegrate the region
the Imperium. Naturally, the Solomani resisted, and the Solomani
Rim War (990 to 1002) began. -ld
