The name "Liosol" comes from the words "Lao Setole" which means "New Setole." There have also been claims that the name of "Soltenna" comes from a misheard form of the form "Setole." These claims are backed up by the existence of the massive Liosoglo Empire.
In 1253 AD, the Kingdom of Setole (the largest of Northern states) established itself as the Alotol Empire. As time went on individual state joined the Imperial Confederation and created "Goncha" or "The Wall" as a defense against the invading Western powers. Attempts to reach out to vassal states such as Hux Kham ultimately failed in this early period, although the nation did manage to liberate some of the North of the country.
Liquidation of the Confederation
In 1803 AD, after the 550th anniversary of the confederation was celebrated nine referendums were held to decide the fate of the country. It was argued that states could exit now that the Imperial Age was over, but some of the early states now felt tied, politically and culturally, to Liosol. A few countries left, but most of the empire retained her former territory. The Alotol Empire had devolved into the Kingdom of Liosol.
After a military coup that killed Anthola the IX occured in 1831 the kingdom entered into an interregnum period. Every political faction fought over the future of the country until it was decided that a central monarchy could no longer work. While the nation was a confederation it worked well because there were multiple kings conveying in a court and there was no central place of power. After thinking long and hard the government decided a parliament would be wise as a somewhat feasible replacement to that system. A monarch and prime minister were elected together in the year 1840.

The Alotol makes up the biggest portion of Liosol's ethnic groups. The name originates from the Liosolessa words for 'the people.' Roughly 63% of Liosol identifies with this group while in reality, only about 48% of the population is true-blood Alotol.
The Sitr are people who inhabited the west-southern regions in prehistoric times. They built some city-states in ___ BCE. Rietic peoples entered (Southern) Liosol later on, and they co-existed with the ruling Sitr. Given Rietic influence, as they (to be exact, "ethnic Liosolis") became the ruling class in c. 600 BCE, change gradually happened and Sitr got (partially) assimilated in terms of culture into these (ethnic) Liosolis. Values of Sitr culture were (partially) carried over to the culture of (ethnic) Liosolis, such as (insert example here).
