The kingdom of 科瑞塔 was originally e戳刺lished before the Exodus of the Gods by King Mazdak, a prince of Orr. However, after this it was colonized by 伊伦娜 in 300 AE, though it gained its independence in just a few decades after foundation, making it the youngest of all 人类 kingdoms for still unknown reasons around the time when the 半人马 War began. 科瑞塔 gained independence from 伊伦娜 in 358 AE, after which the history of the kingdom is not known beyond the first two of the Guild Wars that were fought between 科瑞塔 and 阿斯卡隆, with 阿斯卡隆 enduring as the victor of at least the second of the wars, which ended around 1020 AE.
The greatest change in the course of history of 科瑞塔 occurred after the end of the third Guild Wars, during the 夏尔 Invasion of northern 人类 kingdoms of 阿斯卡隆, 科瑞塔 and Orr. With the guidance of Saul D'Alessio and his unseen gods, 科瑞塔 was the only 人类 kingdom to prevail against the 夏尔. During the invasion, 贾顿王 fled the throne, bringing about the rule of the 白斗篷 which lasted some seven years before resulting in a civil war, ended by Jadon's daughter's, Queen Salma's rightful ascension to the throne in 1079 AE. The 白斗篷 and their gods, who had become a tyrannical and oppressive cult during their reign, were cast out, although they were not completely eradicated. A short golden age ensued, and many 科瑞塔ns remember Salma as Queen Salma the Good.
In 1219 AE, the Elder Dragon 泽坦 awoke, raising the peninsula of Orr from the sea, causing a great flood which destroyed the city of 狮子拱门 and other shoreline towns and ports. Both the people of 科瑞塔 and the royal family moved north to Divinity Coast, where 神佑之城, an even grander city than the previous capital, was built. After the flood receded, 狮子拱门 was rebuilt by Cobiah Marriner as a free city open to all races and cultures and a bastion against the Dead Ships of the Risen.
Since then, the influence of 人类s in the whole region has diminished considerably during the last century. Many former territories, including the city of 狮子拱门, the monastery island of Sanctum Cay, and provinces by the Ullen River, are no longer ruled by 人类s, being claimed by pirates, the immigrant 天狗, and Maguuman wildlife respectively. Many of the islands in the Sea of Sorrows, once considered to be part of kingdom of 科瑞塔, are now inhabited by various creatures and no longer part of any major governance.
Today, 科瑞塔 is a cultural melting pot, housing 人类 refugees from all over 泰瑞亚. 阿斯卡隆ians, 凯珊ns, Elonians and even Orrians call this place home. Laws are designed by The Ministry, and citizens of all nationalities are given a 音 in 科瑞塔n politics, 人类s having long since put aside heritage in uniting against the threat of the Elder Dragons. The Seraph represent law and order in 科瑞塔, while the Shining Blade serve as the royal family's elite guard, as they have served at the side of the monarchy since they put Queen Salma on the throne two and a half centuries ago, during the 科瑞塔n civil war. They have their work cut out for them, however, as the 白斗篷 conspire in secret to return power to their unseen gods, while 半人马s roam the land, fighting for their former territory. Politically, 科瑞塔 is a land of unrest. The Ministry is split between those at odds with 珍娜女王 and those favoring her, leaving political factions to tear 神佑之城 apart from within – all the while the 半人马s, bandits, and the minions of the 上古巨龙 creep ever closer to the heart of the last 人类 kingdom.
