History of Vazos and Quraf


I have some rough sketches of the history of Vazos and Quraf, but want to work on building something a bit more detailed. I'd like to take this convention as an opportunity to do so with input from my neighbors. Here's what I have so far:

• 3000 BCE: First evidence of human settlement in the Vazosian archipelago. I'm not quite sure whether they've always been populated or if they were settled by migrants from somewhere else. Wolfsea seems to be an obvious choice given their proximity, but I'm open to other suggestions.

• 2200 BCE: Danetzom, the ancestral religion of Madrako and Diunu, develops.

• 700 BCE: This is around the time that I envision the first states forming. Two in Vazos (Wazoa in the south and Escandia in the north) and one in Quraf (which also controls Krespos).

• 500 BCE: The Wazoan Empire conquers Escandia, unifying the island of Vazos for the first time.

• 480 BCE: The Wazoan Empire conquers Quraf and Krespos.

• 150 BCE: The Wazoan Empire collapses. Quraf is again independent and Vazos breaks up into city-states.

• 77 BCE: The Cordi dynasty takes power in Quraf. Their reign is uncontested for a thousand years.

• 700 CE: By this point, Danetzom has clearly divided into Madrako and Diunu.

• 850: House Sahas takes power in the city-state of Saghurbom (Blankastelo).

• 875: House Nazha (Na?a) takes power in the city-state of Magurbom (Nikastelo).

• 889: House Vishu (Vi?u) takes power in the city-state of Fulmurbom (Flakastelo).

• 896: House Nahata takes power in the city-state of Wenurbom (Grikastelo).

• 904: House Mapura takes power in the city-state of Phayurbom (Rukastelo).

• 913: House Vadhish (Vadhi?) takes power in the city-state of Acùrbom (Blukastelo).

• 917: House Muldahar takes power in the city-state of Lignurbom (Verkastelo).

• 923: The Cordi dynasty in Quraf falls after a feud forms between twin princes Cofa and Yulom. Upon their father Lunarc's death, they attempt to co-rule. The religious authorities in Quraf oust them from power after a year of bitter fighting and create a theocracy.

• 1158: By now, the seven previously mentioned city-states have expanded to control the entirety of the island.

• 1242-1251: A brutal war is fought over control of the Southern Sound between Vadhish and Muldahar. Vadhish emerges victorious.

• 1284-1290: Sahas and Vishu jointly invade Nahata. Mapura comes to Nahata's aid, and the invaders are pushed back.

• 1346-1359: King Pheroym I of Nazha coordinates the assassination of King Gardom of Mapura. Mapura invades Naja with the assistance of Nahata. Sahas comes to Nazha's aid, and the Blood War ends in a stalemate.

• 1380: Phrocali, a Madrako High Priest, prophesies of a king that will re-unify Vazos. Although he does not explicitly specify a time, it is generally interpreted to mean within the next century.

• 1470-1480: War breaks out between all the Vazosi kingdoms as the time of Phrocali's prophecy nears. The Sa?ularo orders an armistice in 1478, and the Unification Treaty is signed in 1480.

• 1535: The theocratic government of Quraf is replaced with a parliamentary republic as the influence of the Diunu priesthood wanes.

• 1620: Around this time the transition occurs from Old Vazosi to Middle Vazosi (spoken today as High Vazosi). Major spelling reforms take place, and the Ancient Cities acquire their current names.

• 1643: High King Sebalo Vadhi? decrees the closure of Vazosi borders at the prompting of the Sa?ularo.

• 1815: High King Selio Mapura orders the invasion of the Republic of Quraf on February 15. Quraf surrenders on July 23 and an occupation government is formed.

• 1823: The population of Quraf is enslaved. The Temple of Diunu on Krespos is destroyed and a summer palace for the High King is built on the foundation.

• 1857: A slave revolt in Mahasur results in the deaths of twelve Royal Army soldiers and three hundred Qurafi slaves.

• 1907: Chancellor Beriga Na?a emancipates all Qurafi slaves with support from High King Viteni Vadhi?. Her attempts to grant citizenship to former slaves are cut short by her assassination three months later.

• 1956: The Qurafi Liberation Battalion, a militant Qurafi separatist group, forms in the slums of Mahasur.

• 1978: After a failed attempt to mount revolution, the QLB disbands. Former members of the QLB form the Qurafi Republican Militia.

• 2015: High King Belrak Sahas reopens the borders of Vazos to trade and diplomacy. Immigration will not be permitted until 2020.

I'm up for any suggestions as to how to fill the gaps in this.
