The capital of Menkalinan is Carosasha.
 During the Forth Succession War, the Capellan and Marik forces worked together against the Davion-backed Screaming Eagles. However, the two regiments of mercenary ‘mechs crushed the opposing militia’s, and forced a battalion of the elite First Free Worlds Guards offworld.
 When the War of 3039 began the FWL was in the final stages of its own civil conflict to bring secessionist Andurien back into the League. The bloody ten-year conflict helped foster a sense of pride and nationalism in many League units, one facet of which was a desire to revenge the FWL’s embarrassment in the Fourth Succession War. Concerted efforts by the FWLM would not take place until the later stages of the conflict (notably the Marik Militia and Free Worlds Guard attacks on Hsien, Callison, but some small-scale skirmishing took place during Wave One.
In a rare intelligence coup, SAFE alerted the FWLM to the withdrawal of the LCAF garrison on Menkalinan shortly before the outbreak of war and even as the first allied troops were assaulting Combine worlds Atreus was ordering its own forces into action to liberate Menkalinan, lost in the Fourth Succession War. The Fifteenth and Thirtieth Marik Militias were assigned to the operation, which they achieved in only six days, almost walking into the positions abandoned by the Eridani Light horse several weeks earlier. On May 5, the Eagle flag of the League flew above Menkalinan once more.
