The first signs of civilization in Tiwura appeared around 500bc, as the Zeb Culture. Almost nothing is known about the Zeb, as they were only discovered in 1981. The Zeb were located on the convergence of the Marron and Ozimi rivers. The only artifacts found were sculptures and spears, and more and more keep appearing. The Zeb mysteriously disappeared around 100bc, and no sign of civilization would rise until
During the 1400s, the tribes of the nation scrambled to become the dominant group. The victor of this contest would be the Obilu Kingdom. The Obilu Kingdom grew around it's capitol, the city of Obilu. Obilu was the first nation to sell slaves to the Asuran powers. Nations such as Midrasia would begin trading along the mouth of the Roiette River, and trade posts would begin to be constructed along the shoreline. The Obilu reached the height of their power during the early 1700's, when wealth begun to pour in from slave selling. However, the Kingdom Of Obilu was not going to last forever, as another Zamga empire was on the rise, and would eventually come to overtake the Obilunese. This would be the Tafkisarki, a Zamga kingdom built on conquering and the spread of Irsad.
The Tafkisarki Empire was the dominant nation of Tiwura between 1734 to 1845. The nation rose from the tribal peoples of the dwindling Lake Tsarki. The kingdom would swiftly expand as new technology had arrived from the western side of Arabekh. This new technology would give Tafkisarki an edge over their enemies, and within two years had conquered the majority of modern Tiwura. In 1735, Tafkisarki began to rival tribesmen into slavery. This only grew their power. Tafkisarki remained unrivaled for the next one hundred years. However, after the slave trade began to slow down, the empire's wealth was draining. Not only that, but the capitol's main water source, Lake Tsarki, was drying up at a rate never seen before, and by the 1763 the lake had split in two as the middle had finally dried up. What was believed to have caused the quick drying was a massive drought that hit the region between the mid 1700s to the early 1800s. These years saw massive famine, disease, and thirst. The capital, Cinikibi, would be the hit the hardest. This crisis caused the Tafkisarki's power to soon collapse by the early 1800's, and led to the rise of the final Tiwuran empire.
The Obo Empire begun it's rise during the early 1800s, as Tafkisarki began to collapse from drought and the slowing down of slave trade. The Obo would begin to spread the Mwo language across Tiwura, and their rulers would form close relationships with Asurans, especially Midrasia. The Obo allowed Midrasia to expand the Pierre Trade Post. In 1839, the Obo would launch an invasion of Tafkisarki. This would be known as the Great Obo War, and would last 6 years and result in the establishment of Obo's superiority over the Tiwuran region. Obo would puppet many of it's neighbors, and form a new rivalry with the former Obilu Kingdom, who had been holding on for the last hundred years. The Obo would sell Midrasia metals and food to Midrasia, and in turn would be given guns and weaponry. This allowed the Obo to have technological superiority over it's enemies, and would allow it to rule undisputed for next few decades. In 1858, Midrasian missionaries traveled to Tiwura and spread the Alydian faith. The Obo's King, Agwo the Great, converted to Alydianism in 1859 and established Alydianism as the main religion of the empire. This caused some problems, as many refused to convert. However, the Obo managed to convert the majority by 1861. This began a long lasting conflict between Tiwuran Alydians and Muridins. However, this would all become irrelevant by 1867.
In 1867, the Midrasians invaded the Obo Puppet state of Apeja. This would begin the colonization of Tiwura. Commander of Midrasian forces, Charles Deroche, would lead Midrasian troops up the Pierre river and defeat the Obo within a week. Deroche's forces would then set their sights on the Obilu. After a month of fighting defeated their last warriors on the Perineon River. By 1869, Midrasia had full control of Tiwura and established the Colony of Pierre in 1870. Midrasia's trade port, Pierre, would become the new urban center of this colony. Pierre grew quickly, as Midrasia now begun to sell the newly gained resources from Pierre's massive port. Midrasia exploited the gold wealth found in the Haut Mountains of Tiwura as well the vast chance to create an agricultural powerhouse in the southern parts of the country.
