Franaderoan/Saconian    Franaderoan (Fragassanhjron)

The Franaderoan or Saconian alphabet is the creation of Alain Lemaire. He started developing it in 1991, when he had an great interest in the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets, upon which the alphabet is based. In 1995 Alain started to work on a language to go with his alphabet, soon abandonded his alphabet and decided to write his language with the Latin alphabet. Recently he started using his alphabet again.

Internal history

The oldest form of the the Franaderoan alphabet was invented some 2,500 years ago. It is still in use today, although only in religious texts. The Latin alphabet was introduced during the Saconian Empire (today's western part of Franadero) in the first half of the 17th century, probably by the Dutch. The 'Saconian' alphabet was invented in the second half of the 17th century.
