Unfortunately the colonist still faced many problems after landing including the volatile weather. The first few years the colony was hit by several class five hurricanes, causing the destruction of what few supplies that they still had. Arguments in the colony caused the remaining colonists to split up as they abandoned the original colony landing site.
The colony was discovered by the survey ship the CSS Al-Sistani, while it was searching for suitable planets for colonization. After an initial survey the confederate government dispatched a science group of Anthropologists and Sociologists to survey the planets inhabitants.
The confederate government contacted the Frankish empire which refused to accept the planet. The Celtic Alliance later accepted New Aquitaine as a protected world.
The planet is still made up of feuding groups; the factions evolving into tribes and city states, and therefore the Celtic Alliance has decided not to upgrade the planets technology levels until a peaceful planetary wide government can be established.
The Celtic Alliance continues to this day to allow Confederate Social Scientist to study the planet.
