PENAL COLONIES

mernagh_monument

I had an interesting thought for my fantasy book. There have been multiple penal colonies throughout British history from Australia to Andaman Islands. I am thinking of including a penal colony in my fantasy book where convicted criminals, attainted nobles, and defeated armies go into exile. At first, this colony is too busy fighting amongst itself to be any threat to the kingdom, but later in the story this colony becomes a legitimate threat to the kingdom as the prisoners return for what was taken from them.
