Myrcella I's Reign: Part 5
Before the War of the Five Kings, the last major war definitively caused by a succession crisis had been the War of the Ninepenny Kings, where Maelys the Monstrous, previously thought to be the last Blackfyre, claimed the Iron Throne. That war, however, was never even fought on Westerosi soil. The War of there Three Stags, however, had been insanely traumatic for the Seven kingdoms; whole regions were devastated, and humanity had literally almost gone extinct due to the disunion in the face of the others and Euron. There was a general consensus across Westeros that the succession simply needed to be officially handled. Thus, in 310, Myrcella released an official set of succession rules to the throne. They essentially stated that the eldest son of the current monarch should inherit the throne; if there were no sons, then the eldest daughter would inherit. Crucially, the loose precedent of the Great Council of 101 was officially done away with; there was some ambiguity because that prece

Myrcella I's Reign: Part 4
The Others were completely defeated by the year 305 AC, pushed back to the Lands of Always Winter. And yet, while Westeros was saved, it was clear that it needed a good deal of reorganization. Coincidentally, 305 was also the year when Queen Myrcella became Queen in her own right, with regent Tyrion Lannister stepping down to become Lord of Casterly Rock and Warden of the West, though he was almost immediately appointed as the new Hand of the Queen. He would remain a valued advisor to Myrcella(who my damn computer is still autocorrecting to Marcella). The first task the new Queen faced was dealing with the two of the Seven Kingdoms that had been unequivocally and irredeemably crushed: the Stormlands and the Iron Islands. The Iron Islands had not technically surrendered to the Iron Throne, and ever since Euron had abandoned them to become the Night's King they had been in a state of civil war. By 306 AC, however, they had been easily subjugated, with Theon Greyjoy installed as Lord of t

Myrcella I's Reign: Part 3
The Others, the story went, were created by the Children of the Forest to oppose the First Men. Eventually, they turned on the Children, forcing an alliance between the two warring factions to stop the monster the Children had created. This story is only partially true. In reality, the Others didn't turn on the Children of their own volition. The Children became careless, arrogant even. And so, a human, the 13th lord Commander of the Night's Watch, was able to gain control of the Others, becoming the Night King. It was he that led the Others against both the Children and humanity. And now, it was Euron Greyjoy who aimed to follow in his footsteps. 
Euron had Rhaegal and Viserion scour the wall with flame. Jon Snow quickly saw that the battle was lost, and attempted to evacuate the Wall. Euron had one last trick, though. He blew the Horn of Joramun, which he had found with Samwell Tarly in Oldtown. And so it was that the wall came tumbling down. The Others were well and truly in We

Myrcella I's Reign: Part 2
The moment that Lord Varys and his Pentoshi henchman, Illyrio Motapis, had worked for had finally arrived. Aegon Blackfyre(then called Targaryen) landed in a divided Westeros ready to claim his throne. However, neither was under any illusions as to Aegon's situation; he needed allies if he was to win. They looked first to the Reach, where Margaery Tyrell, newly widowed, looked a promising bride to bringing the most powerful of all the regions of Westerns into the fold. However, while Lord Mace wass apparently enamored with the idea, his mother Olenna quickly overruled him, pointing out that the Royalists remained strong and the Reach should focus all of its energy on the Ironborn. Thus, the Reach signed a peace deal with Myrcella's regime in Spring of 300 AC: the Reach would swear fealty to Marcella immediately in exchange for no reprisals. Myrcella, already coming into her own as a ruler, countered this by demanding that Houses Footly, Caswell, and Meadows be sworn directly to the Iro

Myrcella I's reign: Part 1
Part 1 of the Dance of the Three Stags:
In any case, after Princes Joffrey and Tommen died by falling down the stairs, Queen Cersei Lannister fell into depression, eventually withdrawing from public life(this is hand wavy, will probably revise later). Ser Jaime Lannister, meanwhile, became closer and closer to his niece Crown Princess Myrcella, who was made Crown Princess at the proclamation of Robert Baratheon. Robert's decree, however, was met with opposition from his brothers Renly and Stannis, who cited the Dance of Dragons as precedent for brothers succeeding before daughters.
In 298 AC, in the aftermath of the death of former Hand of the King Jon Arryn, Eddard Stark was named the Hand of the King, and his son Robb was betrothed to Myrcella(it was agreed that their firstborn would inherit the Iron Throne while the second would get the North). Additionally, Brandon Stark would head south to train as a knight. He would ultimately squire with Ser Barristan Selmy.

Interlude: Westeros' Space Program
The Space Program of the United Kingdoms of Westeros had it's beginnings in the Great Planetos War, where the Westerosi military utilized rockets including innovative new missiles to help defeat the Valarists but during the "Silent War" against Communalists Dothrakia, the space program came into prominence as the government of the United Kingdoms of Westeros felt a need to win the prestige battle with the Union of Dothraki Communes. The Dothraki were the first to launch an object into orbit with their first satellite, the "Vaes", being launched in 963 AC. The Westerosi Space Program did manage to launch the first person into space in 961 on Erde 4. The Westerosis were the first to land a man on the moon in 965 and Curator Station, the first Space Station in Planetos, was created by the Westerosis in 969

Interlude: The Military of Westeros
The Westerosi military is considered to be the most powerful in the world it came from and even in the world which it found itself in after the Event, it is a very powerful force. The Westerosi military reports to both the Westerosi Prime Minister and the Queen of Westeros. The Westerosi Armed Forces, under normal circumstances, has almost 1 million men and women under arms and up to 5-6 million reservists. The Westerosi Military is divided into the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force.
The Westerosi Army is the largest of the three branches of the Westerosi military with 400,000 men. The Westerosi Army is responsible for protecting the borders of Westeros, combat on land, patrolling occupied territories, and defeat of enemy troops. In peacetime, the Westerosi Army is an elite mechanized force with the 15 "permanent" divisions maintained by the Army being comprised of 6 armored divisions and 9 mechanized divisions.

While the diplomats discussed in Switzerland and the Westerosi Foreign Minister was giving his famous interviews on the history of his country from the luxurious quarters the Swiss government had provided for him, the peoples of the world were reacting to the Event in various ways.
Among fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels and the Game of Thrones TV adaptation, the Event was greeted with surprise as the continent of Westeros had been sent into the mid-Atlantic but was far from the medieval continent they knew from the books and shows and was a modern powerhouse of it's own. As the interviews of the Westerosi Foreign Minister revealed the history of Westeros, the fan base was shocked by the different history of Westeros as while Joffrey Baratheon was never King (as he died in a fall down the stairs which appeared to be the main divergence between the events of the book/show and the Westeros which had appeared) and events like the Red Wedding never took place, Stan

Interlude: Government and Politics of Westeros
The United Kingdoms of Westeros' government is that of a Federal Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy, albeit one where the monarch retains some important powers under the 897 Constitution passed after King Rhaegar III was overthrown like declaring war, commanding the military, and appointing the Prime Minister of the United Kingdoms of Westeros (although the monarch of Westeros has traditionally appointed the Prime Minister of the UKW from the winning party/coalition of parties).
The monarch of the United Kingdoms of Westeros, Queen Myrcella II has relatively little power compared to her ancestors, who wielded near-absolute power, but is still a respected figure and is seen as a symbol of the Westerosi nation. The monarch is for the most part ceremonial but in times of national emergencies can assume additional powers like Queen Visenya II, who was an active participant in prosecuting the war against Valarist Valyria and it's Qarthian and Lengii allies.

The Event had resulted in the mid-Atlantic being replaced by an entire continent. The Event had transported what was a superpower in it's world to our world. The capital city of the United Kingdoms of Westeros was near the Canary Islands and the Arbor was off the mouth of the Amazon. Unsurprisingly, the first diplomatic initiatives were spearheaded by the Spanish and the Brazilians, even before the formal meeting between the Big 6 (Russia, China, France, Britain, India, and the US) and the UKW.
The Spanish delegation to King's Landing flew to King's Landing on May 21. The fact that the two delegations were able to talk to one another and understand what year it was was arguably one of the greatest achievements of said meeting.

Prologue
On May 19, 2017, the world received one of the greatest shocks in recorded history. In a few moments, humanity learned that it's cosmological understanding of the universe was incomplete, that time travel, hitherto considered to be sci-fi, was possible, and the universe was populated by some sort of powerful entity.
In the Mid-Atlantic, ships within the area of the event found themselves to be back in the ports from which they initially sailed from along with airplanes flying over the area of the "Event", who found themselves to be back in the airports from which they took off. This was one of the opening events of said "Event"
In other portions of the Mid-Atlantic, ships found themselves in sight of lands which shouldn't have been there and unidentified ships showed up on their radars. Said unidentified ships flew flags which were only seen on a certain TV series but said ships were up to date with modern technology whereas said TV series was in a medieval setting.

Company Profile: Ravenswood-Huawei Corporation
The Ravenswood-Huawei Corporation is one of the most (in)famous corporations in the Galaxy, and for good reason. The Ravenswood-Huawei Corporation was and is one of the largest corporations in the Galaxy and is probably still the largest human corporation. At one point, under Olivette Ravenswood, Ravenswood-Huawei controlled 61 of the 104 human colony worlds, had the 4th largest military in the Galaxy, and it's currency, the Constellation Denarius was one of the main currencies of the galaxy. To analyze how Ravenswood-Huawei came to be one of the largest corporations in the Galaxy, one must look into the origins of the mega-corp and it's two constituent companies. Ravenswood Tech was founded by Alexander Ravenswood in 2018 as just one of many tech start-ups of the day. However, Alexander Ravenswood was highly intelligent and quite ruthless as well and so was slowly able to turn Ravenswood Tech into a corporate empire.

Before the War of the Five Kings, the last major war definitively caused by a succession crisis had been the War of the Ninepenny Kings, where Maelys the Monstrous, previously thought to be the last Blackfyre, claimed the Iron Throne. That war, however, was never even fought on Westerosi soil. The War of there Three Stags, however, had been insanely traumatic for the Seven kingdoms; whole regions were devastated, and humanity had literally almost gone extinct due to the disunion in the face of the others and Euron. There was a general consensus across Westeros that the succession simply needed to be officially handled. Thus, in 310, Myrcella released an official set of succession rules to the throne. They essentially stated that the eldest son of the current monarch should inherit the throne; if there were no sons, then the eldest daughter would inherit. Crucially, the loose precedent of the Great Council of 101 was officially done away with; there was some ambiguity because that precedent had stated that no woman could ever sit on the Iron Throne; however, this was challenged when the Blacks won the Dance of Dragons. Some ambiguity remained, however, because Queen Rhaenyra had never been the unchallenged Queen. Now, however, Myrcella solidified that daughters came before brothers. Further, grandchildren also came before brothers. While this would not prevent wars of succession entirely, it would make them less prevalent because the question of succession itself was less ambiguous.

Myrcella then began on what would become a general theme of her reign: empowering the monarchy. The main step to this was centralizing the Crownlands; the lands taken from the Reach and Stormlands had already been stripped of their previous owners and transferred directly to the crown, and Myrcella would use this as a power base to further disempower the houses of the Crownlands. For some, such as among others Houses Massey, Celtigar, and Velaryon, she had the excuse that they supported Stannis and in the case of the latter two Aegon. Houses Stokeworth and Thorne, meanwhile, were sufficiently weak as to be strongarmed into agreeing to Myrcella's centralization. Only the house of Rosby was foolish enough to resist, and they were quickly put down(upon reading a note from lord Rosby declaring that on their victory the Lords of the Crownlands would decide Myrcella's fate, the Queen remarked "I am the Crownlands!") by King-consort Jon, by now recognized as one of the more able generals in Westeros. 

By 315 Myrcella's authority in the Crownlands was unchallenged. She used this power to create the first professional army in the history of Westeros. Open to any man between the ages of 18 and 35, the Royal Army was essentially an evolution of the Goldcloaks. However, while the Goldcloaks were notorious for their corruption and lack of training, this new Royal Army was extremely well trained and answerable only to the Monarchy; the Queen could appoint and dismiss a General at will, and any and all recruits were subject to strict training. The job also paid well, better than most of the jobs a commoner could enter that didn't involve service to a noble family. Another factor differentiating the Royal Army from the Gold Cloaks was the fact that the Royal Army was recruited from across the Crownlands, while the Goldcloaks were limited to King's Landing. This had the impact in the long term of making the Crownlands the single most powerful militarily of the regions of Westeros; no longer would the Monarchy need to bow and scrape to any Lord Paramountcies whenever some pretender threatened the throne. Their professional army were also some of the best infantry in the world; they weren't as good as the Unsullied, but they could reliably defeat any equal number of feudal levies in a straight fight, and could even occasionally perform very competently when outnumbered. At their inception, however, they were only 5,000 strong, though they would swell in numbers later to 20,000. This expansion, of course, would need money, and no attain this Myrcella ordered the launching of great trading fleets.

The trading fleets would sell goods unique to Westeros(for example, Arbor Red and Dornish gold, and frozen meats of species native to Westeros such as Aurochs) to nations far away from Westeros such as Qarth, Yi Ti, and even Asshai. These fleets were commanded by second sons of Westerosi lords, eager to prove themselves. Asha Greyjoy and Trystane Martell were two notable commanders of the fleets. The impact of these fleets was twofold: firstly, it vastly improved Westeros's financial situation, and allowed for the creation of the Royal Army, and secondly, it improved Westerosi contact with the outside world. It was through these connections, for example, that gunpowder came to Westeros from Yi Ti, though it wouldn't be used militarily until after Myrcella had died.

By 330, the Westerosi Royal Army had become a formidable fighting force, giving the monarchy far more clout in the affairs of the Kingdom. It was at this point that Myrcella turned her attention to one last thorn in the side of Westeros: the Stepstones. This archipelago had long been a haven of pirates and rebels, and they were occasionally a threat to the monarchy. For example, the pirate lord Salladhor Saan had supported first Stannis Baratheon and then Aegon in their wars. These islands simply could not be allowed to persist as an independent entity. Thus, in 330 Myrcella would declare her second war, the Stepstones War.

The war was mostly fought by Dornish forces, as Arrianne Martell planned to integrate the archipelago into her principality. However, the Royal Fleet managed to defeat the majority of pirate navies, and the Royal Army did cut its teeth in this war. Especially notable in this war was the heroism of Ser Brandin Stark, the White Wolf, and Lord Commander of the Queensguard. He was the first off the ships when storming Torturer's Deep, and cut down dozens of pirates with the Greatsword Ice. Ultimately, after around a year, the islands had been conquered, and annexed into Dorne. Arriane made Obara Sand lady of the Stepstones, creating the new House Viper. Obara would be rather successful in purging the Stepstones of piracy, and they were fully integrated into Dorne by the time of her death.

The rest of Myrcella's reign was peaceful. Her son Steffon Baratheon was married to Princess Rhaella, daughter of Empress Daenerys, creating the House of Baratheon-Targaryen, whose banner of a Stag and a Dragon flies over the Red Keep to this day. She refilled the treasury, making the Crownlands prosperous. Finally, she died in 350 AC, after a reign of 52 years. She saved Westeros from the Others, Euron Greyjoy, and, perhaps most significantly, itself, by centralizing the realm and stabilizing the line of succession. Of course, there would be other civil wars(including the infamous 15 Years War) but they would be much less frequent. Myrcella found Westeros a backwater and left it poised to become the hegemon of the West, the Free Cities essentially unwitting as to how outclassed they truly were. She is worthy of her place as one of the greatest monarchs on the Iron Throne.
The Others were completely defeated by the year 305 AC, pushed back to the Lands of Always Winter. And yet, while Westeros was saved, it was clear that it needed a good deal of reorganization. Coincidentally, 305 was also the year when Queen Myrcella became Queen in her own right, with regent Tyrion Lannister stepping down to become Lord of Casterly Rock and Warden of the West, though he was almost immediately appointed as the new Hand of the Queen. He would remain a valued advisor to Myrcella(who my damn computer is still autocorrecting to Marcella). The first task the new Queen faced was dealing with the two of the Seven Kingdoms that had been unequivocally and irredeemably crushed: the Stormlands and the Iron Islands. The Iron Islands had not technically surrendered to the Iron Throne, and ever since Euron had abandoned them to become the Night's King they had been in a state of civil war. By 306 AC, however, they had been easily subjugated, with Theon Greyjoy installed as Lord of the Iron Islands. Theon would soon marry Sansa Stark to bind House Stark and House Greyjoy even closer("To the point we are puppets", some Drowned Men would grumble) and would restore all of his Grandfather Quellon Greyjoy's reforms, and would completely ban Thralldom. Theon would fight Ironborn revolts all his life, but by the time of his death in 350 AC the Ironborn were completely integrated into Westeros, the Iron Fleet now act the beck and call of the crown and only the crown. While Theon was demonized by his subjects in his own time, history would remember him as the greatest Ironborn since Harwyn Hoare.

The other Kingdom that needed reorganizing was the Stormlands. Similar to what she had done with the Reach, Myrcella annexed all lands north of Storm's End directly to the Crownlands, making the Crownlands among the "A-list" Lord Paramountcies, joining the Westerlands and the Reach. Shireen Baratheon was made Lady Paramount, with Dragonstone being transferred to the crown directly so as never to act as a power base for ambitious rebels again. Shireen would marry Lancel Lannister, albeit matrilineally, tying House Baratheon to the Lannister further. The North, meanwhile, should have gone to Brandon Stark, but he abdicated, seeking to continue to squire with Ser Barristan Selmy and eventually join the Queensguard. Instead, Rickon Stark would inherit the North with Catelyn as his regent. 

There was, however, one final issue that needed to be settled: Daenerys Targaryen. Her dragons had been the key to victory at the Battle of Winterfell, and she had the support of Dorne... theoretically. Doran Martell had no intention of fighting the rest of Westeros, and Viserion and Rhaeghal perished above Winterfell. Daenerys could have, most historians agree, captured King's Landing, but the realm was too united under House Baratheon to rally to her. In the long run, she would have been defeated. Daenerys knew this too, and was also eager to return to Meereen, which was under siege once again from a revived Volantene army and the forces of New Ghis, which had conquered Astapor and Yunkai. So it was that one of the most important treaties of Westeros was signed in 306 AC: the Targaryen Reconciliation.

The agreement stipulated, firstly, that Myrcella was to marry Daenerys's cousin Jaeherys Targaryen(called Jon from here on because no one actually ever called him Jaeherys). Their firstborn child would marry the second born of Daenerys and Quentyn. The Westerosi government would also recognize Daenerys as Queen of Meereen(and later Empress of Ghiscar) and sign a trade agreement that would do much to rebuild the economy of what was now Dragon's Bay. A month later Daenerys Targaryen returned to Meereen with Drogon and 5,000 Dornishmen, who easily defeated the Slave armies. Over the next decade Daenerys would conquer Dragon's Bay, establishing House Targaryen of Meereen(that would go fully native within a few generations). The Ghiscari Empire would go through trying times, including partition by the Valarists and Dothraki, Communalist rule, and a bloody revolt against the Dothraki that, while successful in restoring the monarchy, would result in much bloodshed. Still, the legacy of Daenerys, though not the one she had initially hoped for, is certainly one to be proud of.

With Myrcella and Jon married(they would consummate their marriage exactly once, leading to King Steffon Baratheon-Targaryen) there was one major task left: the fate of the Night's Watch. With the Wall essentially destroyed, and a few Wights still roaming the Lands of Always Winter, it was clear that the Night's Watch, or what was left of it, needed severe reconstruction. In the interests of this, Myrcella took steps to actively integrate the Wildlings into the realm. They were granted a large amount of autonomy, but had to acknowledge the Iron Throne as their overlords. They would form the backbone of the fight against the Wights, who would disappear fully a century later. However, even today the Wildlings are not fully integrated, and are often regarded as a different country in all but name.

By 310 AC, it was clear Westeros had fully recovered. Now, Myrcella took the time to begin centralizing the realm. It was in this next decade that she would truly earn her moniker "The Unifier".

I'm thinking of two ways for this, one, Panem is merely a North Korea-esque rogue state in a world about as bad as OTL, and the second idea is that Panem is the world's "Soviet Union", a major power in a stagnant, Brezhnevian phase and the Mockingjay uprising represents the reformist elements of the regime (which probably includes Plutarch Heavensbee) deciding that the old hardliners (represented by President Snow) will never voluntarily relinquish power and decide a revolution is the only answer
  • WW3 was horrible but not world-ending as "only" 50-100 strategic nukes were used by the superpowers but India and Pakistan are obliterated with a "Dravidian Union" being the most powerful post-war successor state and Bangladesh getting parts of Bengal and Assam in the post-war chaos.
  • The US after WW3, after a successful decapitation strike by the PLA during the last days of the war, falls apart in a violent civil war with a "Second American Republic" (essentially proto-Panem) under President Frank Underwood becoming the largest of the post-US regimes, controlling the Midwest, the Rockies, Texas, the Upper South, the Great Lakes area, and the Northeast with the Pacific Coast becoming a "Republic of Pacifica" and a "Republic of Dixie" arising from the Deep South. The Second American Republic is an authoritarian presidential republic governed by the principles of Trumpism (economic liberalism combined with social authoritarianism and a strong militarism) and is divided into 13 districts. Things in the Second American Republic remain PRC-level bad for most of the 21st and the 22nd centuries before becoming increasingly totalitarian in the 2170s onward with the districts rebelling after the Union Party tried to impose a pseudo-caste system which failed spectacularly with the inner districts remaining loyal to the Capitol and District 13 (New England) fleeing to WW3-era bunkers and the Union Party, after the failure of the Great Rebellion, proceeds to carry out a reorganization of the American state into the Union of Panem which includes the (in)famous Hunger Games and the Districts becoming essentially milked dry by the Capitol.
  • The Eurasian Federation is the most powerful state in the world and was formed  by the "victorious" Russians as a federal Union after WW3 and is comprised of Central Asia, the Caucasus mountains, Belarus, and eastern Ukraine in addition to Russia. The Eurasian Federation initially started out as an authoritarian democracy but eventually democratized in the late 21st century and the 22nd century. 
  • Latin America is dominated by the Hispanic Socialist Union, a federation descended from the Bolivarian Socialism of the early 21st century and adhering to a mix of Liberation Theology, radical socialism, and populist nationalism. The Hispanic Socialist Union controls most of Central and South America either directly or indirectly with the exception on Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Southern Brazil (with the rump Brazil and Paraguay being more or less "Finlandized" TBH)
  • Europe is a battleground between the Eurasian-aligned Mittleeuropan Union, consisting of Germany and Austria, the Panemian-aligned 3rd French Empire, consisting of France, Belgium, the Basque portions of Spain, and Luxembourg, and the Meditteranean Workers' Union, comprised of the rest of Iberia, Italy, and Greece. In addition, a "restored" Yugoslavia along with a Visegrad Union are Eurasian allies while the UK and Scandinavia are fiercely neutral.
  • The Middle East has calmed down with the major players there being a liberalized Islamic Republic of Iran fighting against a "New Caliphate" based out of what was once Saudi Arabia and controlling the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, and most of the Levant (an uneasy coalition of Shiites, Jews, and Maronites cling on to the coast). The New Caliphate is aligned with the Capitol but their extreme methods which in some cases recall the bygone "Islamic State" make them uneasy allies for the Capitol. North Africa is ruled by shaky democracies for the most part with the exception of Algeria, home to the last of the Arab Nationalist military regimes.
  • India is fractured into many pieces with the South being in a good shape with a "Dravidian Union" being the largest Indian remnant and recognized by most world powers as the legitimate successor to the Republic of India. Bangladesh took advantage of the collapse of India to gain the rest of Bengal and parts of Bihar and Assam. The rest of India is ruled by petty regimes with a "National Republic of India" based in Rajastan and a "Socialist Republic of India" based in Orissa being the largest of them. Pakistan is even worse with Baluchistan as an oasis of (brutal) stability under an Iranian-backed regime.
  • Africa has changed relatively little since the early 21st century but South Africa is no longer the regional powerhouse, long superseded by an East African Union formed in the 2080s. In addition, there are weird corporate states like Namibia, essentially the property of Morgan Industries, which is a quasi-monarchy under the descendants of Nwabudamike Morgan.
  • China had a short civil war in the 2060s which saw the fall of the Chinese Communist Party and it's replacement with a "Chinese Federation", a shaky democracy which is punctuated by the occasional coup d'etat. China is busy forming a non-aligned bloc along with the Indochinese Federation, Thailand, the Union of Korea, Japan, the Dravidian Union, Bangladesh, The Pan-Malayan Union, the Federation of Australasia, the Chile, Argentina, East Africa, the Scandinavian Federation, and Britain
  • Technology in this world is a mixture of nowpunk and hard sci-fi as small colonial bases are all over the Solar System and anyone who is anyone has a social media account with Social Media being a requistite for advancement in society.
