The earliest proto-civilization that settled in the area of Sia Be was a small coastal kingdom known in Qonklese texts as Nyumòun, first appearing in records as early as 502 CE.
The Nyumòun adopted the Ru abugida around the year 1000 CE, and they called themselves with the autonym Nhki Ngeat. Sia Be culture existed as the political entity known as the Kingdom of Nhki Ngeat (Cawrai: Keuituo Nhki Ngeat [kɨi̯.tuᵊ ɲki.ŋiᵊt]) from 1023 to 1224.
The Ankuong Empire was the next political entity that succeeded the kingdom. The first king, founding monarch Hacaing Creuo Teui (Cawrai: [ha.cai̯ŋ crɨᵊ tɨi̯]), traditionally reigned from 1224 to 1380, united the various Quoncid tribes around the coast, making an empire stretching from Qgam to modern day Ru (became a protectorate in 1239). Hacaing Creuo Teui did what most did not dare to do: defy and challenge Qonklaks. In an unexpected turn of events, the Ankuong achieved victory over the plains of modern day Mai Thi. This event triggered the usage of Maithic mercenaries by Qonklese generals.
However, the Qonklese treasury ran out of money due to repeated droughts and rampant corruption, and soon the Maithic mercenaries could no longer be paid properly. As a result, the Maithic mercenaries turned on the Qonklese and sacked their capital city.
Ankuong started to decline in the late 1350s, where rampant corruption started to take hold. Numerous protectorates started to switch allegiation to the newly formed Qonkese dynasty.
The size of the Ankuong Empire was reduced to its current borders, and it reentered into tributary relations with Qonklaks in 1380. It would enjoy a period of slow growth until the industrial age. This period is known as the Fifteen Dependencies.
The Fifteen Dependencies were once again united during the Seang Pe Civil War where the Unionists united the various kingdoms under one flag, and the First Union of Seang Pe was formed in 1894.
The Union of Seang Pe joined the Soltennan Blood Pact in 1942.
