Pre-Historic Kansasto (~9,000 BC to ~900 AD)
Very little is known about pre-historic Kansasto, owing to the lack of contact with those that kept records at that time. Archaeological finds place the settlement of humans in the region around 9000 BC, with several different tribal cultures rising and falling over the centuries based on archaeological finds.
The first mention of Kansasto in attested records is of a tribe known as the Kansaarii in 201 AD, which the Solarian general Caius Domitius Ahenobarbus described as being 'fur-clad amber traders, barbaric, warlike and crude in their ways' during his Amber Road Expedition of 199 - 203 AD.
Solarian contact with the region was mostly through the trade of amber with local tribes, hence the discovery of Solarian coinage but other than the Amber Road Expedition, contact between Kansasto and the Solarian Empire was extremely limited. A combination of overpopulation and famine owing to shifts in temperatures caused several of the tribes in the region to depart, including the Kansaarii, moving into the Solarian Empire in the 400s but due to their lack of numbers compared with the Marolevic and Weranic invasions at similar times references to them are few and far between as chroniclers often believed them to be of Marolevic or Weranic origins .
Very little is known of the period between the fall of Solaria and the arrival of St Henri of Ephi in 909 AD, the first record of Kansasto since the Fall of the Solarian Empire, and so this period is often called the Dark Age of Kansasto.
Principalities Period (909 to 1722)
St Henri of Ephi, a Gaullican missionary, arrived in Kansasto in 909 AD, and his writings form much of the sources for Kansasto in the early part of this period. Kansasto, upon his arrival, was divided among several small states that St Henri described as 'principalities', which gives the name to this period.
Of these states, the largest, most powerful and the state that St Henri settled in was the Grand Principality of Suur, with other states he recorded including the Principalities of Vaike, Orsinn, Arkeen and Vosii.
For the next seven hundred years, these small states, and others, would fight wars among themselves but unlike in the rest of Euclea would fail to form into a single centralised state, instead forming into seven distinct independent entities. These seven states would fight among each other, in addition to fighting the Minerva to their south and other neighbors, only rarely unifying into a single entity under a single powerful ruler who the others recognised as the Grand King of Kansasto only for the duration of their lifetime.
This lack of unity on the part of the principalities would result in their conquest in the 16th and early 17th centuries by the neighbouring Narozalica, the final independent principality, the Principality of Orsinn, being annexed into the Tsardom after the defeat at the Battle of the River Heksinn.
