This article is about the semi-legendary ancient monarchy of Nozama. For the modern-day administrative districts of Namor, see West Nozama and East Nozama. For the river, see Nozama River.

Nozama (Нозама, 嫩昃孖) was an ancient Namorese kingdom whose territory spanned from the East Namor Sea to the southern end of the Tanken Lake.

It was supposedly founded in PNMR 2636 after the land of Nozama was unified by Nushen, making it the first ever unified Namorese state, although there is no substantial archealogical evidence to support the assertion that the kingdom was founded on that year. Most accounts concerning Nozama's early history are based upon myths; however, there is a consensus among historians that the kingdom did exist and ended in PNMR 860, when it broke up into several warring states. This has led to Nozama being labeled as a "semi-legendary period" in Namorese history.

History

According to legend, the land of Nozama was unified into one state by Nushen Tzang Hong, the monarch of Namo. Prior to unification, Nushen had traveled from Tanken Lake to Namo, where she became the consort of the king of Namo after winning a martial arts contest. The various states of Nozama, upon hearing that Nushen is the daughter of Songte who had come to the mortal world to liberate it from the demon Teyu, pledged allegiance to Nushen, facilitating their unification. Nushen then led Nozama in a massive war on Teyu, killing him and wiping out the demon army.

Nushen triumphantly returned to Namo, where she continued ruling Nozama. The queendom prospered, but towards the end of her reign a rebellion broke out among Nushen's three sons. With the help of her daughter Fengna, Nushen suppressed the rebellion and had her sons executed. Shortly after, Nushen returned to the heavens and Fengna succeeded her as queen. Fengna, in turn, was succeeded by her male descendants.

Sometime around PNMR 860, King Ping Chu died. Ping's seven sons all believed they were the true successors to the throne and founded their own states within the realm, thus ending the unified Nozama kingdom.
