Dragon's Peak was discovered in 1 AD, by elves who were exploring islands. The elves were sailing in a ship called The Wrecker, under the command of Captain Joshua Males. Joshua, and the crew, noticed that the island chain was too small for a permanent civilization, so they left the islands. Fifty years later, 50 AD, the children of Joshua's crew sailed to the islands. Aboard their ship were Boom Fiends, Arkeyan Hammahs, Dragonets, and Chompies (green and purple). The crew were dropping these dangerous things off at the small islands, so they couldn't harm the citizens of Skylands. When they docked the Chompies were let loose into the island, and the Arkeyan Hammahs were left in a giant pile, to rot over time.
In 150 AD a pirate ship crashed into the sandy beaches of the island. The crew stayed there for a week until they were able to build a raft to leave the islands. When the pirates returned to Artisans City, they told everyone about their discovery. Sailors, and explorers became interested in the tale of this small island chain. So three ships set out towards Dragon's Peak. There were many dragons aboard the three ships, who will later populate Dragon's Peak with dragons. When the three ships arrived to the islands, they found the islands very nice and pleasant. There were no known predators, and the temperature was great. The dragons found many cliffs to jump off of, and fly through the nice breeze. The crew decided to build cabins to live in, and establish the new found islands as one nation under their leadership.
In 151 Dragon's Peak had many neighborhoods, but the governors never got to establishing themselves as a nation. When word got out that the governors were planning to do so, but never did, some got mad. Many wanted Dragon's Peak to be a separate nation from Skylands, so the governors decided to do what the people wanted. On May 7th, 151 AD, the governors of Dragon's Peak established the three islands as one nation. They wrote a declaration declaring that the islands would be ruled by a monarch. All the governors thought they would become the new king, and fights started to happen. On May 23, the governors met together in the capital. Suddenly one governor pulled out his sword, and stabbed the governor sitting next to him. The third governor saw this, and ran off. Before he could get away though, the first governor threw his sword, and hit the running governor in the back. The murderer proclaimed himself king, and said that the other governors died of a heart attack.
Dragon's Peak became an neutral nation, and did not take part in any wars. They traded a lot, and ignored the rest of Skylands. They remained untouched for a long time, and not much happened. The nation was small and inactive all till the 20th century.
In 1908 Dragon's Peak entered a hard time. The current king of that time, a mabu related to the first king, had driven the nation into the ground. He had spent so much money on the military, that the government went broke. To fix this the king raised taxes, which just made more problems. Gold soon lost 36% of its value at Dragon's Peak, and trading slowed down. The mabu thought he was doing everything right, and thought the nation was fine. The citizens were mad, and a rebel army was established: The Freedomers. The Freedomers were planning to overthrown the king, and get a new king onto the thrown. March 3rd, 1910, the Freedomers stormed the capital. They killed all the guards, and workers. They broke into the king's office, and with no mercy killed him. The Freedomers took over the government, and appointed a dragon as the new king. This dragon is Ramses the I, the father of Ramses the IIthe current king. Ramses the I took good care of the nation.
According to Ramses, when he is finished with the throne, he knows who will take his place, though it is currently unknown who.
