The Aloian Army is the second largest branch of the Aloian Armed Forces and performs land-based military operations. It is one of the three uniformed services of the Kingdom of Aloia. The modern Army has its roots in the standing armies maintained by the member cities of the Baltic League, Aloia's predecessor state. After the 1417 Peace of Halle, a common military was established. After the 1593 Uppsala Synod, the Baltic Army was renamed the Royal Aloian Army.
