Learn English – Inversion in English

subject-verb-inversion

Is it correct to invert the subordinate sentence in English? For instance:

When the time comes, so shall we reign
the land!

If it is correct, what is the rule? Or is it only in old English?

That is an archaic construction (and not limited to subordinate clauses/sentences); one wouldn't use it today except in dialog in a period piece.
