The Tapani Empire was the government that ruled the Tapani sector for some 6,000 years. It was formed when a warrior prince named Shey Tapani from House Melantha unified the Tapani Noble Houses through numerous bloody civil conflicts that lasted nearly twenty years.
Shey Tapani was crowned Emperor of his newly formed dominion in the year 5392 (7328 BBY). He selected his homeworld of Procopia as the seat of power for his new Empire. A total of sixteen dynasties ruled the Tapani Empire for nearly 6,000 years before the final Kappela Dynasty eventually fell to a military coup in 11,138 (1582 BBY) that followed a gentle and steady decline into regional factionalism.
