The Amicizia Accordi (literally, "The Friendship Accords"), also known in Hallish as the Auresio-Anisoran Accords, were a series of agreements signed from 7489 to 7497 between the Anisoran and Auresian Empires in the run up to the Pan-Anarian War which saw a significant warming of relations and an eventual defensive military alliance between the two powers being signed in 7494. The First Accord was signed in 7489 and was primarily focused on resolving the colonial tension between the two empires in their territories and interests in the Shangti and Tzeraka and brought to an end the historic rivalry between the two empires. The first Amicizia Accordo was the culmination of the policy of M. Ermino Bastico-Magnena, Anisora's Tribune for Foreign Affairs from 7484, who believed that an Auresio-Anisoran understanding would give both Anisora and Auresia a degree of security against growing ties between Anat Tahan and Helreich.

The Second Accord was signed on 18 January 7494 and officially established the Auresio-Anisoran defensive military alliance. The terms of the treaty stated that should one signatory nation be attacked by two or more foreign powers, the other signatory nation would come to their defence and declare war. However, if one signatory nation was attacked by only one foreign power, the defensive alliance was not binding and the other power was not required to come to their defence. The Third Accord was a secret agreement signed in 7497 between the Anisoran and Auresian governments that laid out specific defensive plans in reaction to the establishment of the United League in 7495 and, crucially, the official joining of Anat Tahan and Errea to said alliance in 7496.

The Amicizia Accordi were an independent precursor to the official signing of the multi-national Aschgæt Alliance in 7498, which both Anisora and Auresia signed at the outset of the Pan-Anarian War. However, when Helreich invaded Hattaria and declared war on Auresia on 7 April 7498, Anisora declared war on Helreich outside of the mechanisms of the Aschgæt Alliance but instead by the terms of the Second Accord agreed between the two powers in 7494. Thus, when Auresia and Anisora signed the alliance, they were already at war with Helreich. Formal declarations of war on the wider United League came when the two powers signed the Treaty of Aschgæt.

Although the Accords were the brainchild of the Anisoran Tribune for Foreign Affairs Bastico-Magnena, the eventual success of the Accords was largely down to the work of the Anisoran ambassador to Auresia, Sir M. Adriano Della Lanoreva, and the Auresian Foreign Minister Tesso Moretti, both of whom pushed hard for their respective governments to come to eventual terms in the signing of the First Accord in 7489. The Auresian Lord Paramount Marco Corleone was perhaps the most influential supporter of the proposal in Auresia, whose influence on the newly crowned Willem II led to the emperor's support of the First and Second Accords.
