Otovo (Monyo: Otofu /ʌtʌsə/) is the largest populated region of the Otovo Oblast of in northern Yakormonyo. This city served as the capital of the nation until 2005, replaced by the growing city of Onioto.

Etymology

The name 'Otovo' came from the Kamikio-Monic words ottao (water) and sou (cedar), which describe the trees that used to populate the area and the several rivers that flow through it. The original name of the region when it was discovered by the Kamikians was Otohofi (lit. groups of water); Otofu was the capital of the area. It was in the early 11th century when the inhabitants began to use the term for the whole region.

History

16th Century

Before 1515, Öto Upu (what it was called then) was one of the northernmost towns in the Yaharan Empire, in the Duchy of Ësnvøërvërg. When the Empire broke up, Öto Upu and its surrounding towns of Repöča (Repoşota), Sämežxemí (Samejkhemy), Ítona (Ytona) and Vommä (Voma) declared their independence as the Duchy of Ësnvøërvërg, eventually followed by other towns in the Toşe region. Eventually Ësnvøërvërg was renamed to the Duchy of Otofu. It became the capital of Otofu until the nation united with the neighboring Duchy of Peccy (Pekha), wherein the capital was moved to Ony. On 1565, by order of Duke Otohua Samejkhemy, Oto Upu (renamed to Otofu) became the capital of the United Duchies of Peccy-Otofu. non-canon, WIP
