After the Heltavanian Revolution in 901, legend has it the disgust with the dispelled king Hêltâvên III was so large, that a new name was adapted with the formation of the republic. As can be read in the historic documents, the first line of the Heltavanian Constitution read "This is the constitution that rules the land and seas of our country, which is ruled by the king of Heltavan." - in which the first reference to the nation was through "lôns", the accusative of land. As the republic began to form, instead of using the previous name, which the hated Hêltâvên III had disgraced by adapting, a 'constitutionally approved' synonym was used.
The first notes of a Lonish nation was the nation of Heltavan, a union of five states, Hêlig, Vâlsjâ, Tohâ, Didim (City State) and Tekjêmên (which later became known as respectively Kêlik, Âlesiâ, Toga, Didim and Teklên), into a kingdom by king Âlvo I in the year 23. This kingdom became known as Hêltâvan, which meant about as much as Hêlig and the others, as Âlvo I was the ruler of Hêlig, and the capital was set in Hêlig for that reason as well. Under the rule of Âlvo IV and his successor, Ivâl II, land was added to the kingdom to the west, among which the city state of Gârf, which was key in trade at the time. By CE 150, all of the Dita peninsula was conquered, and the Heltavanian king Ribûn I looked to conquer several other city states to the east, which were at the time already being overrun by the Adzamasi Empire. In 710 king Tebâs III instated the first and only Heltavanian constitution, which would later stand model for the first Lonish constitution. By then however, as the Holy Adzamic Empire started to fall apart, the city state of Îls (City State), captured years ago, rose and threw down the Heltavanians, with help from the Aysmai, which had broken off from the Adzami in the first place. Ûlta also turned out an enemy of the Heltavanians, and with sleek politics, the public opinion of the king started to go down rapidly. At this time, the city state of Gârf also broke off independently. All this led to the Heltavanian Revolution in 901, which resulted in the overthrowing of the monarchy, and the instatement of a republic. After this, the country became known as Lons. Lons became after this however a most stable country, especially as it led a personal union with Koklatia, a collective of Koklatian cities, including the whole trade power of Jê Tüit. After being briefly conquered by the Kauzic Empire, Lons found itself a monarchy again, when the House of Pabûn royal family rose to power. This monarchy lasted until the First Lonish Revolution, after which a House of Pêtrîs rose to power, in 1765. It was under the rule of this family, and specifically the rule of Queen Vaniâ II that Lons conquered the Asmal. In 1902, King Hâlm V dissolved the monarchy in the Second Lonish Revolution, or as it became known, the Bloodless Revolution, as it was the King himself who instated the removal of the monarchy in favor of a republic. However, as he was favored by the people, he remained head of state afterwards, as he won the first election and became the first Lonish president, however now under the name of Hâlm Pêtrîs. During the Great Ekuosian War, the Asmal split off and fought against Lons for its independence more than anything. However, when the war was won, the Reborn Republic of Asmal was defeated as well, and by president Dormân Elitîs, the independence of New Asmal was granted.
