Again, the ambiguity here is vast. What is "change" in the context? Esrola was established after the terrible and tragic events of the Sword and Helm Saga. This occurred during the Darkness, after Vingkot was dead. Virtually NO large political interaction occured at that time--everyone as fighitn locally for survival. Esrola benefitted from Heort's inspiration of I Fought We Won, and afterwards was the Unity Battle and the Unity Council, which established the KoN qs the dominant political entity. The KoN saved Esrolia from total destruction by chaos. Thus the two grew up together, with constant influence and reciprocal influence. Perhaps it is useful to compare this to the Kitori, who were clearly dominated and significently influenced by the uz.
