The history of Gotneska as a unified kingdom began in the 9th century. However, historic documents describe the geographic area and the people living there, the Götaí and Ruaíaí, as early as 500 CE. These early documents include the writings of ?? and ??. With the Christianization of the Geats circa 660s AD, it is clear that there existed a kingship. Queen Sarah II can trace her lineage back to the Cordic & Namór Ásásadóirmenni kings ?? and ?? from this time, thus making the Monarchy of Gotneska one of the oldest continues bloodlines in Argis.[citation needed] The area now known as Gotneska has a rich prehistory, having been populated by several prehistoric cultures and people for about 10,500 to 8,000 years, since the end of the last ice age.
