The Principality of Essinia was one of the former States of Rodenia.
The Principality of Essinia was founded in 1633 when Prince Enrico I of Essinia, son of Francesco I of Viola, conquered the area and made it an ally of his fathers kingdom. He became the sovereign prince of the country. In 1713, the Kingdom of Celestia invaded and took over Essinia, ending its sovereignty. After the war, Essinian territory was incorporated into the Principality of Santa Maria.
